Another "Tech Consultant"
(one eyebrow raises)
In a nutshell, this is how we work.
We listen. We listen a lot.
Getting to the bottom of your challenge or issue is literally everything, so if you want it remedied, it's all cards on the table time. We're not around to judge, because we're old enough to have seen just about every conceivable situation all businesses eventually face. And because of that, we know there's always some snafu, whether technically-driven, people-driven, or growth-driven, that eventually causes problems.
Let us guess.
You've grown, and so has everything else, including challenges you saw coming but couldn't afford to deal with. Now you can, and must.
Lack of engagement
general frustration with IT resources
Inability to adopt digital strategies
or transform the business due to systems constraints
Increased spend on IT
(6-8% of top-line ARR vs. Up-Market rates of 1.5-2.5%)
Higher business risk
with single point-of-failure IT resources
Conflicting functional initiatives
without a unifying platform
I need an affordable CIO who:
• Understands the cost-value equation
• Can drive business and digital transformation
• Can decipher the IT ”black box”
We like to think we're about as creative at solving challenges as the people who invented the business to start with. Unless we can "see" the holistic view of the business itself, there's not a person alive that can accurately predict or solve a potential crisis. So, right out of the gate, we listen hard because we rely on your openness to help us do our jobs.
We know, that doesn't sound very cool, but having seen so many different challenges, this is how our brain works. We like to "slot things" so that not only do we understand it better, hopefully, so can you when we present our proposal. Take a couple of minutes and click around this interactive presentation where we explain a few things.
Allow us to put you in a box.
