Maybe you have heard of IT Consulting companies. What do you imagine when you think of one? If you envision a group of computer geeks, you aren’t completely off-base. In our recent blog post, we help you understand what an IT consulting firm is and who IT consultants are.
Now that you understand what IT consulting is, let’s explore why managed IT services are so important. The main role of IT consulting companies is to help your business scale and outperform the competition.
A quality IT consulting company generally staffs a team of experts & IT professionals who can design, implement and manage an effective IT solution that will take your business strategy to the next level. An “effective IT solution” means the team will procure the necessary hardware and software to ensure:
For many small business leaders, this could sound like a pipe dream. It seems that as technology evolves so does our tolerance for the issues that come with it. The truth is, you shouldn’t have to struggle with problems related to your IT. From risk mitigation to increasing employee productivity, an effective IT strategy could drastically level-up your business.
While IT consultants can work independently, IT is too complex of an industry for any single person to master everything. Hiring an IT consulting company is the best way to receive full-scale IT support since their consultants work together as a team. Quality IT consulting companies can have anywhere from 5-100 consultants on staff. These professionals have gone through rigorous training, certifications, and higher education to offer informed solutions for your IT strategy.
From risk mitigation to increasing employee productivity, an effective IT strategy could drastically level-up your business.
When you consider how quickly technology is evolving, the idea of having a team of IT experts on your side becomes critical. As Forbes points out, “New digital trends pave the way for a rise in society’s expectations, and things that seemed impossible just a decade ago are now taken for granted. Having witnessed virtual reality, enhanced 5G connectivity, and even drones integrate seamlessly into society, it begs the question of when – not if – the next breakthrough is coming.” Have you noticed shifts toward technology in your industry?
If you are an educator then you experienced a major shift to technology in 2020. Suddenly students are attending class in the comfort of their home through smart devices. Workers in the construction industry came into the modern age with advancements in cloud computing and AI.
People in finance are experiencing an unprecedented number of online banking. According to a national survey, 65% of Americans relied solely on online banking in 2020. The bottom line is that every industry will be impacted by the development of technology. The question is when not if you will be faced with a complex IT challenge.
Let’s take a closer look at the healthcare industry as an example. COVID19 forced doctors to switch from in-office to telehealth (virtual) patient visits. As you can imagine, doctors were already overwhelmed with the announcement of a global pandemic.
The phones rang off the hook with patients who needed immediate appointments and answers. Yet, right at the time patients needed medical attention most, medical workers were burdened by the urgent need to adopt a new technology known as telehealth.
While telehealth was not a brand new concept, it was novel to most doctors at the start of the pandemic. The strict HIPAA compliance regulations made it difficult for medical professionals to leverage telehealth. Before COVID19, state and federal barriers blocked the full potential of telehealth visits.
Suddenly, regulations shifted to allow telehealth appointments. Doctors needed to quickly find the appropriate software and hardware to facilitate virtual appointments. Medical Economics reports that “many doctors saw their livelihoods threatened as in-office appointment cancellations piled up … 77% of doctors surveyed used telehealth for the first time because of COVID19.”
Given that one of the main benefits of an IT consulting company is procuring the appropriate software and hardware for your business; you can see how healthcare IT services were a lifeline for doctors. IT consultants were available to interpret the new regulations, source appropriate devices, and implement the right software in a timely manner.
If there is an unforeseen event that forces your hand in embracing a new technology tomorrow, are you ready? The instance of doctors switching to telehealth is a prime example of how critical it is to have an IT consulting company on your side. (Learn more about healthcare IT services)
