For smaller companies that must rely on outside IT professionals, that inflection point is even shorter at three hours. Furthermore, it is 90 percent cheaper for organizations to wipe and reimage a computer, compared to fixing it with internal IT. These cost analyses lay out a clear, return on investment (ROI) based case for computer disk imaging software.
