Do you see your company in this scenario?
XYZ Corp was struggling to get orders out on time, keep track of product, and maintain positive customer experiences. They knew that their aged IT systems were to blame, but didn’t know where to begin to get things in order and the anticipated expense kept them in a pattern of “bandaid” fixes and crisis management.
When they learned of the free budgeting and strategy sessions Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) is offering, they knew they needed to give it a try. In the initial meeting they learned how, with the help of assessment tools and skilled technical consultants, they could very quickly know the sources of their troubles and the priorities that would remedy the most critical pain-points first. They decided to take the first step.
In a brief 4 hour assessment, CCS identified that their server infrastructure was aged, software updates had not been applied, memory utilization was extremely high, and that the log files showed repeated failures of various types. They also identified that the overall network design was not optimal for the way they were trying to work and that many of the workstations had unsupported operating systems.
During the strategy session, CCS explained the findings and how these various problems were contributing to the poor performance. It was simple for them to identify the greatest pain-points, how they were affecting the business, and what the priorities needed to be to bring about the most immediate relief. Additionally, CCS was able to show how taking these steps would establish systems that XYZ Corp could build upon for their future objectives.
After identifying the priorities, CCS outlined a budget proposal spreading the expenses for the various mini-projects over the course of one year. At that point, it was easy to see how step-by-step XYZ Corp could remedy their most immediate problems and build a system that they could rely on and grow with.
XYZ’s CFO was very impressed. “Having a clear picture of what needed to be done, spelled out in a phased approach, enabled us to make these improvements without negatively affecting our cashflow.”
