IT Disaster Of The Week (11-22-19)

Today's photo caption: Avoid this Black Cloud on Black Friday. 

Welcome back to Tech Service Today's IT Disaster of the Week series where we showcase the ugliest IT environment our technicians ran into this week. 

I can imagine that some die-hard shoppers have nightmares about being first in line at a Black Friday cash-only sale, only to realize they have no money in their wallet and the only ATM machine in the store is out of service. Oh the humanity!

But now imagine the horrific visions that awaken retail IT professionals in a cold sweat in the middle of the night... like their store point-of-sale (POS) systems failing on Black Friday. Such an outage on the busiest shopping day of the year could spell disaster for any retailer, not to mention bringing an abrupt end to the IT manager's career.

At the risk of sounding too much like a commercial, this is one of the reasons why most retail IT professionals have Tech Service Today's phone number on speed dial. With over 20,000 skilled IT professionals across North America, we can typically dispatch a technician to any location same-day to troubleshoot and fix network & system outages. And we're open around the clock, every day of the year, so you won't have to wait until Monday to reach us. 

While we can't do anything about the empty-wallet nightmares that some of you Black Friday shopping enthusiasts are having (except to remind you to stop at the bank this weekend), we do hope the knowledge that TST is ready to services retail networks 24x7x365 will allow every retail IT professional to sleep a little more soundly in the days leading up to Black Friday. 


HEADS UP! With the holiday next week, our next IT Disaster photo won't be posted until December 4th. So be sure to check back then to see the first helping of cabling coal that Santa has left in our stockings this year.
