Jun 21, 2019

Learn how IT consulting can change your business and helps to beat your competitors.

At the initial stage of the creation and development of the company, few people think about what the business will be in five or ten years. But when the first success is achieved, small peaks are conquered, you need to move on. Predicted planning, development strategies, planned projects – all this contributes to stable growth. However, timely IT consulting will help to revise such a strategy, identify weaknesses and implement new methods and ways of interaction within the team and with customers.

Deep Analysis and Audit of Internal Processes of The Company

A professional team providing IT consulting services always starts with the analysis and testing of the internal processes of the client company. This is how the experts at Computools do, before proposing optimal ways to increase the efficiency and productivity of the company, the webpage, the applications. The implementation of ready-made solutions that have already managed to bring success in the industry or other similar companies do not always give the desired result. As practice shows, this is due to the fact that it was not previously clarified how necessary this solution is, what benefits it will bring for this particular company and what costs will be required to implement it.

Individual approach and solutions that take into account the specifics of the enterprise, its resources and goals – this is what should underlie in a reliable and efficient IT consulting service. Conducting in-depth analysis and research within the company allows not only to identify weaknesses but also to find areas that can be improved using new techniques, technologies or optimization methods. Thus, you can see the full picture and choose the best way to improve your company and outrun competitors.

Saving Time and Money

Time is one of the most valuable resources in a business. First, it can’t be returned, and secondly, it is terminated. This means that all changes and introduction of new products must occur in advance. How to find out or choose the right time? Seek to consult service from professionals.

The business value of technology services providers go well beyond the cost reduction of their efficiencies and result in very hard dollar savings. In almost all cases, small businesses will spend 25% to 50% less than the cost of even one mid-level IT professional. Additional cost savings are realized since recruiting, training, vacation, sick days, turnover and other management issues are all taken out of the equation. When utilizing a professional technology services provider, costs are budgeted, planned and controlled.

Consulting will help to identify processes that can be automated, implement the necessary technologies, or make changes to already established schemes to make them more effective.

The High Return of Investment

Investments and its reasonable allocation are always a big deal for companies of any size. It is very easy to burn out by financing in advance the losing area. It is reasonable to assume that the best investment is in a new product. Consulting will tell you exactly how your product should be so that the investment not only justified itself but also returned in the shortest possible time.

For example, the Computools specialists not only conduct market research and offer possible options but also make complete prototyping of the future product. This means that you get an almost functional app that you can use as a beta version to test the usability and usefulness of this product. These are not just theories and figures on paper, this is a real opportunity to test a product and get feedback. So, you will know for sure whether it is worth your investment.

Since IT consulting is a complex service, it can include several stages, depending on the needs and goals of the client. But don’t be in a hurry to refuse additional services, perhaps they will allow you to conquer a new market.

The Timely Deployment of The Latest Technology

The implementation of new technologies allows responding to changes in the market or in the industry. No one person or a team is able to process the amount of information that literally absorbs AI or Big Data in seconds. Algorithms for Machine Learning analyze data, displaying reports on selected parameters in a matter of minutes. Everyone who follows innovations all over the world knows about these possibilities of the latest technologies.

But knowledge of these technologies is not enough. It is necessary to understand how to correctly and most effectively implement them in your processes and enterprise; what will be a useful function, and what will be an extra ballast that will take money, time and other resources. Computools experts, based on their experience and constantly updated knowledge, will make the necessary calculations and conclusions almost as quickly as the technologies they introduce. In addition to recommending exactly which disruptive technologies your business needs, you will receive data on how to apply them to your company with maximum benefit.

Productivity Improvement

Technology improves productivity by enabling communication, collaboration, and knowledge sharing that allows employees to innovate. These capabilities are delivered through a multitude of technologies including file servers, central databases, broadband connectivity, mobile platforms, email communications, and many others. However, true productivity and business benefit can only be realized when this complex technology is properly planned, implemented and maintained. The best practices and comprehensive experiences around planning, implementing and maintaining such systems allow consulting services providers to successfully deliver these productivity improvements.

In addition, productivity can be enhanced by transforming internal processes, adding new talent to teams, and reorienting work. Establishing communication, using applications and messengers, as mentioned above, is only the top of the iceberg. Even the usual CRM system that helps to work with clients can undergo changes. After all, the very concept of productivity means that each employee, being a part of a single whole mechanism – a company – every day seeks to get better results by doing its daily work for five plus. The company may offer bonuses to the employee, help in performing tasks and other motivations, but the application of innovative methods also gives good results.

Releasing Time and Resources for Core Tasks

People are generally happiest doing what they do best. And they get frustrated by distracting tasks that have nothing to do with their essential job functions. Each employee is at his best when he focusses on his core competencies. The time and effort spent on figuring out Information Technology have a very real opportunity cost. Researching solutions, implementing new technology and fixing IT-related problems are extremely inefficient for non-IT professionals. What is more, the complex and evolving nature of information technology can lead to an expensive loss of time and resources when using trial-and-error processes.

The solution is very simple. Hiring a third-party IT consulting team allows your business to call upon the experts who have wide-ranging experience. You can benefit from their analytical skills and quick-thinking to keep your IT functions and tasks on track. In addition, internal staff are free to spend time focusing on revenue generating opportunities and the business of the company. That is why it is not worth delegating new responsibilities to employees who are not competent in resolving such issues. They will not be able to solve the problem and perform their normal duties; as a result, instead of the expected profit and growth, you will receive losses and dissatisfaction on your staff.

Improving Staff Conditions

Employees want to work in an environment where their computers are up and running. Where downtime is minimal and the software works like it is supposed to. Employees want to be competitive with their rivals and they want the technology tools that really help them deliver. Employees expect to be up and running with current technology solutions that help them exceed, and not just meet expectations. Those entering the workforce today weigh a company’s technology prowess.

Creating comfortable working conditions for each employee is one of the company’s responsibilities. This is achieved in various ways: the necessary furniture, offices and equipment, financial motivations and bonuses, training, seminars and collective meetings. In the context of IT consulting, the comfort of each employee is ensured and guaranteed by minimal intervention in his work.

This includes several actions at once. First, not burdening an employee with additional responsibilities – he should not be engaged in process optimization if it is not his direct task for the post. Secondly, the introduction of technologies and techniques should be as gentle as possible, if this is not possible, prior training of personnel is necessary. Thirdly, all technical issues should be solved by experts, and not by employees on their own.

The task of any changes is to automate, optimize, simplify and make more effective the work of the team, and not cause discontent, misunderstanding and confusion because of an incomprehensible program or process.

It often happens that the company is not even aware of the existing problems or the need to transform, change, introduce new technologies. IT consulting helps to identify the true needs of the company and is looking for the best options to meet them.

Regardless of the task difficulty, the team of Comutools professionals will be able to solve it, applying their knowledge and experience, developing an individual solution for each issue.
