What is IT consulting and why does your small/medium business need it?
Landon Technologies is located in Jacksonville, Florida. We often get asked about IT consulting. Jacksonville is just like any other city. We have businesses that range from one person operations in a garage to massive multi-national conglomerates.
IT consulting for a smaller business is as important as it is for the largest businesses.
A small business is one that has less than 100 employees. A medium-sized business has up to 999 employees. All of the businesses that are this size need to have technology that is as reliable and modern as a company with 10,000 employees.
IT consulting is one of those services that most business owners don’t realize that they need until it’s too late. They will often make the mistake of going it alone or trusting someone who has very little experience, like a relative or an employee.
Here at Landon Technologies, we tell customers that if they are planning to spend more than $1000 on technology, they need IT consulting. If they are planning on doing anything more complex than writing letters, they need an IT consultant. If they need their technology to be reliable and accessible at all times, they need a consultant.
It might sound a bit like we are tooting our own horn, but we would tell you this even if you choose to work with someone else. One thousand dollars is not a lot of money, but it will typically be enough to define your business. Whether it is a state of the art laptop or a new wireless network, an IT consulting firm can guide you to making the best and clearest decisions.
When you are working with an IT consulting firm, you can expect them to look at several different things:
- Your needs now – What are the functionalities that you need to do your job well now?
- Your needs in the future – As your company grows, what can we predict you will need for services and technologies?
- What is the least you can get away with – What are the technology minimums that you can do now to save money?
- Mobility – Do you need systems that are mobile or can they be stationary to meet your needs?
