Why Do I Need An I.T. Consultant?
Over the years we have had a few customers who grow to the point where they hire an on-site I.T. person. At that point I usually get the “We won’t need you anymore” speech, and I say “Congratulations! You have my number if you need any help.”
Sure enough we usually do get a phone call at some point when either the person they hired can’t do something or fix something, they let that person go, or they are just looking for advice on one thing or another. Sometimes They like to hire someone with less experience or skills at a lower rate, and just bring us in for the problems and projects they can’t handle.
Our managed services can also be very useful even if you already have an I.T. staff. When you can get managed antivirus, managed backup, or any of our other services for the same price as a non managed solution, it can only help your I.T. staff with upkeep and maintenance, that otherwise might take up a big chunk of the day.
As many business owners know, your employees don’t always have the mindset and/or viewpoint needed to be as efficient as you’d like. Having a 3rd party look at your I.T. processes, and make suggestions can save time and money.
If you don’t have someone with enough knowledge and oversight to manage your I.T. staff, and you are just trusting them to do the best job possible you are probably leaving money on the table. That is when an I.T. Consultant can come in handy.
