Well, it’s not because they don’t have someone to look after their computers. – Most companies have someone they can call.
So, what’s the problem?
The problem is that although they’ve got a “computer-fix-it” guy, they don’t have someone with skills that go beyond installing patches and off-the-shelf antivirus programs. They’ve got someone that can do the basics, but they don’t have an IT consultant that specializes in pro-growth business technology support.
You see, there is a difference between someone who “knows computers” and an IT consultant who knows how to leverage business technology for your company’s advantage.
Caring for the technology of a business within the healthcare industry is infinitely more complex than 80% of businesses in other fields. Why? Because the expectations placed on the IT infrastructure of a healthcare organization are more involved and regulated than other industries. Everything has to be done correctly. But it’s more than that. While dealing with the complexity of Healthcare IT, a technology consultant has to be looking for ways to help the organization leverage their IT environment to stand out in a highly competitive market.
Legislative and industry-standards compliance is now the fastest growing segment within most industries. Why? Because lawmakers and industry watchdogs are reacting more quickly to the current and emerging threats posed by hackers, data breaches, and the theft of personally identifiable information. Our IT consultants work daily with healthcare and professional services businesses that have high-level compliance requirements.
Business leaders are quickly gaining an appreciation for what virtualization can do for their companies. What is virtualization?

Serving small to mid-size businesses is not as simple as it would seem at first glance. It’s infinitely easier for an IT support company to find a niche of large businesses within one industry and roll out cookie-cutter solutions for that niche. In contrast, serving small to mid-size businesses requires a skill set that ranges from active listening to highly personalized and customized service. We are proud of the work that our small to mid-size clients do every day, and we are honored to be their IT partners.
Anyone can download and install a consumer-grade antivirus or firewall solution, but that’s not adequate protection for a company doing business online. Why?

That’s why you need enterprise-grade IT security solutions and cybersecurity management. Our IT security professionals keep an eye on horizon-level threats while ensuring that your systems are kept secure with the latest IT security protocols and protective monitoring.

With all of these things in mind, we give you the information you need to make decisions about business aspects that are impacted by technology – and today, nearly everything is impacted by technology!
