Streamline your Small Business w/ IT Managed Services
As a IT managed service provider “or IT Gurus for short” we are all about tech tools. I am in no way substituting the importance of true knowledge or experience that is obtained by either experience or just good genealogy, however even with the most technical engineer there is the need to streamline processes. The nature of the technology field should be about innovation however when it comes down to the tools that a company uses to do their job, there also needs to be a certain level of hardening and testing. This in combination with the massive amounts of options that both new upcoming companies come out with and existing companies trying to compete with the allure and glamour of being the first to announce something new, creates a lack of importance for things like quality control and testing.
Most technology companies will spend more money on sales and marketing than research, development, and testing. I don’t want to make it seem that I am bashing start up companies since I totally understand the pickle they are in. How can these companies compete with the HP’s, DELL’s, and Microsoft’s of the world? It takes a lot of money invested in marketing, sales, and even promotional give away’s to begin to create some traction.
What I notice is trending is the insurgence of great ideas and products that either get bought out by a bigger company or never quite develop their software as a complete solution. I have used countless of programs that are excellent and focused on a set of tasks but generally fail at getting the whole picture. Striving for a single pane of glass or unified platform really helps small businesses streamline their processes and create more effective communication. However finding that one software that covers all of your current business needs yet flexible enough to adapt to change really requires a technological understanding of the product.
In order for a small business to keep up with the latest tools and different options for what can help improve their businesses processes and efficiency it requires endless time, research, and analysis. We at OS Consultants provide small business consulting services to a range of businesses in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area. As an IT managed service provider, we pride ourselves in spending all those hours in research, trial & testing, and implementing while constantly investing in the latest technology to not only do our job better and faster, but to offer our clients a competitive advantage.
