a how-to blog about what your Office 365 work life should look like – CTA with offer
The other day I received a text from one of our customers, “thanks so much for all your help – I can’t believe how easy it is to do everything from any device.” It was rewarding to get this feedback. As a small boutique IT consulting firm, our client relationships are very personal. We know our customer’s systems (and business) intimately and consider ourselves an extension of their team. A win for them is a big win for us.
Have You Achieved Technology Nirvana?
For many companies, the promise of digital transformation through technology has already been delivered. Technology is seamless, files can be found and shared easily, applications are available on any device, analytics are advanced, delivering insights rather than numbers, and security is streamlined (yet still secure). For companies who have achieved technology nirvana, congratulations. You are probably partnering with a great IT firm and don’t need any help from us. But for others, that promise of technology enlightenment seems to be false hope. We know. We get the phone calls.
Simplicity Begins with Outcomes
When we begin working with a client, we always start by focusing on the outcome. Where do you want to be at the end of the project? The destination needs to be clear or the roadmap will be flawed.
Usually our initial meetings with clients are the result of two things:
Because we don’t advertise, all of our clients come from referrals (yes, if you are reading this blog and have a technology pain you need solved we invite you to call us). The work we do is highly personalized and usually begins with an upfront review and assessment. It’s a get-to-know-you-first-approach to make sure there is a fit and that your challenge is one we feel confident about solving.
Common Client Pain Points – It’s All About Change
Technology is coming at us fast and furious. As an example, there are now over 2,000,000 apps on the Apple App store with hundreds being added daily. All of this promises to make life easier for us, and in many cases it has. But for businesses who have customized legacy business applications, complex workflows and a mix of cloud and on-premises solutions, technology has simply introduced more silos of data that aren’t well integrated.
Here are some of the common pain points that begin our client conversations:
