The Importance of Strategic Planning
We can help show you how to save huge dollars for your business by selecting the appropriate technology and subsequently gain long term benefits from one time up-front costs.
When our managed services are used in conjunction with these investments, we can help you keep costs in check to further maximize your investment.
With each new client, our first task is to learn about their business model and see how the workflow happens. All of the pieces that go into technology planning relate directly back to that information.
Our role is to evaluate how you’re getting things done and then look for better ways to achieve it using technology.
Sometimes even simple solutions can result in large savings. We saved a client about $20,000 per year by replacing and upgrading their server. The new server significantly increased the efficiency of my client’s database, allowing employees to function without substantial wait times. The immediate result was a savings of more than three hours per day, or about 720 man hours per year, and what our client can do with those saved hours exponentially increases the value of that server.
Sometimes that may mean selecting a different product – like Peachtree Accounting vs. QuickBooks – or a different method of information management – like upgrading from hand-written medical records to an EMR system. Reviewing your payroll process, back office applications and other systems unique to your discipline may also play an important part of the conversation in support of our effort to make your technology investment more strategic.
