Smart Spending = Smart Business
"You get what you pay for."
You hear that phrase a lot and in many cases it is true. However, the Data Recovery industry is ridiculously expensive and we could not figure out why. You can argue that you cannot put a price on experience and there are some very experienced professionals out there, but we believe the price of our expertise should be dictated by us, not by this so called "market".
Data Recovery has evolved and moved on from the days of needing people that know everything. We utilise modern devices and applications that do the job so effectively we have almost made ourselves redundant. As a result, we can operate 24/7 and carry out data recovery as we sleep and even remotely.
Since modern recovery companies use the same tools as we do, we asked ourselves.. Are they essentially charging for the progress bar or are they charging you for the salary of the person to watch that bar?
Data Recovery | Industry 4.0
The Geeks are highly experienced in back-end infrastructure for enterprise sized systems and this has taught us that productivity, optimisation and efficiency trumps all because without them, a company simply fails.
Our company is founded upon these principles. Utilising our experience we built a business upon combined systems to automate the majority of the Data Recovery and Backup System processes. This reduced down the need for a human so far that the business can scale without new staff. However, we obviously understand the importance of people. A balance between human and automatic interaction is critical to maintain a high level of customer service. In other words, we keep humans doing what humans do best and machines doing what they do best.
By bringing automation and AI into this industry we are disrupting the market pricing, driving costs down to a more realistic level. Consequently, we are saving thousands for customers and businesses each day and intend to keep that figure rising.
It is time Data Recovery modernised it's business model and we believe that can only be done by starting a fresh. That is to say, Hi, we are The Geeks, how can we help?
Transparency And Responsibility
Yes, we are a profit making organisation but we operate at less than 5% gross profit yet achieve a higher net profit. For this reason, we ensure our outgoings are low to provide a low cost but good profit model which benefits both the customer and business.
Of course we also understand our environmental responsibilities and have built the company with a paperless and recycle conscious ideology. In other words, a printer will never be purchased and we will reuse suitable cardboard packaging for shipping, as well as recycle any cardboard or plastics we cannot reuse.
