IT Industry Secret: PulseCare VS. Other US, Puerto Rico and Virgin Island IT Companies
Shhh, don’t tell anyone we told you! PulseCare is the secret of our success!

WARNING: We are about to let you in on a secret about how most computer companies in the US, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands really make their money! We will cover the three main types of IT companies and what you can expect out of them.
The Pay-By-The-Hour Computer Company
In the IT Industry, we call this the ‘break-fix’ practice. That’s because this type of company bases the majority of their income on the fact that your technology will break, and you will pay them to fix it.
The IT support companies in the US, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands that use this business model usually charge per hour for support, or perhaps offer a discount with blocks of prepaid time. Their technicians come to your office to solve a specific computer issue. These on-site technicians are expensive, and the company they work for often has expectations for the amount of billable time their employees need to have. It is pretty standard practice for the technician to manage their own time to an extent, and they are responsible for producing their own billing, and that is reflected in their pay.
In a situation like this, the tech wants to complete the task and move on to the next client to rack up enough billable hours to make their boss happy. This leaves them in a position where they simply don’t have the time to resolve other issues or run maintenance on systems to minimize downtime and ensure that the entire infrastructure of your business is running smoothly.
This business method gives the tech no incentive to show anyone in your organization how to resolve even a simple problem (rebooting a router for example) because that means one less billable call in the future. Plus, answering questions and checking into other issues might cut into the other billable visits that tech has that day. This method works well enough for residential users with computer troubles, but let’s be serious, you are trying to run a business.
In the end, you end up paying for the technician to come out along with the employee(s) who couldn’t work due to the issue.
The “Preventative” Maintenance Computer Company
Some tech support companies in the US, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands might offer to do regular preventative maintenance when visiting their clients, or they schedule out these visits out regularly on specific dates and times. This is so the technician can fill up their day with as many on-site client visits as possible. When the tech visits your business, they usually have a block of time to complete a series of proactive maintenance tasks to keep your IT running well. This sounds pretty good so far, right? Unfortunately, the tech usually doesn’t have the flexibility to go over the allotted time, especially without getting approval to bill you. The real kicker is that if the tech finishes the tasks early, they are often instructed to just find other things to do to fill the block of time, or even worse, just move on to the next client. You’ll still pay whether you get your hour or if it only takes the tech 15 minutes.
Tech support companies love this model because it gives them guaranteed billable hours and they take no risk because if you need more help, they simply bill you by the hour.
