There you are, taking that first sweet sip of coffee in the morning just minding your own business as you settle into your desk and stir your computer awake. When it happens.  

You go to check your email and BAM! It won’t open. It’s gone dark. If it’s not your email, it’s your phone system, your instant messenger, your ERP or other applications you need to get your job done. Frustrated, you think to yourself, “Is there anything that could have been done to avoid this?”

Questions to ask yourself:

Are the solutions we have today the right ones for our company? 

You’ve made the investments in your technology, and they get the job done enough. Yet there’s always something. Some issue that makes it so it doesn’t quite work for what you’re really trying to achieve causing more pain and frustration.  
With a Proactive Managed IT approach, you’ll get a full technology remodel ensuring you’re only paying for the systems you need for maximum effectiveness and dumping the rest. We make recommendations for the right solutions specific to your organizational needs. 

Are we leveraging technology the way we need to?  

With remote and hybrid work continuing to rise, technology is no longer a mechanism for convenience, it has become a necessity for collaboration among your team. You don’t have the luxury of using pen and paper, sticky notes and whiteboards anymore with digital teams. Your ability to communicate and collaborate digitally is key to successful business operations and efficiencies. We guide your current processes and recommend how to leverage systems to bring you into a modern workplace environment. 

Who’s leading the technology strategic plan? 

Do you have an IT leader at your organization? Or perhaps you outsource your IT. Or maybe you and your team just limp through IT issues on your own, hoping they go away? A Fractional CIO both gets to know your unique business needs and has the expert capability to leverage technology into your business plan in a seamless way.  

So go ahead, take that worry-free second sip of coffee in the morning, and contact us for a FREE technology audit and discussion of your IT needs.
