A traditional setup in any business would involve an IT Manager (or similar at board level) looking after the technology within the business and allowing the people at the rock face or the fee earners to do their jobs efficiently and unhampered. Depending on the size of the company, the IT Manager could be extremely hands on in a smaller set up or manage a small team of staff in a bigger environment.
But businesses aren’t traditional any more. Many organisations choose to outsource their IT or try to do it amongst themselves. In either scenario important staff are taken away from their day jobs to work on projects and make decisions that they simply aren’t qualified to make.
We realise that good IT leadership is vital to any organisation but a full time, permanent IT Manager comes at a price that many businesses cannot afford – and simply don’t need. To bridge this gap we offer what we call a ‘fractional’ or shared IT Manager service giving you as much or as little help as you need whilst providing you with the level of expertise you would have if you employed an experienced IT professional.
A few examples of areas where you would benefit from having an IT professional at management or board level are:
It’s hard to look after IT systems on your own. Various industry professionals and pre-sales people will visit you but, in the end, they can only sell you what they have to sell – and then try to make it fit. We don’t compete with anyone as we provide a management and consultancy service that ensures you get the most appropriate systems and infrastructure regardless of any affiliation. We can deal with all 3rd party involvements to ensure your systems are fit for purpose and cost effective.
We can get involved and help in a way that suits your business. One or more days per month or on an ad hoc basis, complementing any existing staff that you may have and we work exactly as if we are part of your business. Going out to the market to find you a good telephone support service, looking at your server infrastructure, reviewing your print requirements – everything you would expect from an employee with your best interests in mind.
Another area where we add value is in interim IT Management. Your current IT Manager may be off long term or may simply be overwhelmed by the volume of work. We can join in and keep things moving forward or add extra expertise where needed. We are interested in building long term business relationships and we do this by taking the time to understand your business.
Regardless of your company size, turnover or future plans you will always benefit from good quality IT management and advice. To talk to us and see how we can help – send us some details below and we’ll get back to you shortly.
