Planning

In the crazy, frantic world in which we live, sometimes it is easy for business owners to operate reactively instead of proactively.  They are so busy managing their company, getting through email, and just trying to catch up.  When they think about the time it would take to consider adopting new technologies and exploring how they may benefit their business, they adopt a mind set of "if it is not broken, don't fix it."  Under this scenario, big but important projects and advancements keep getting put on the back burner. 

We realize the importance of integrating technology into business to make it operate more efficiently and more profitably.  So, we set annual planning meetings with our clients so that we allocate and spend the proper amount of time in a scheduled and organized manner.  The scheduled planning meetings allow us to sit with our clients, take a deep breath, and plan. 

We set aside the time to talk with clients about their business, and how adopting technologies may help improve it.  Some of the items we've discussed in other planning meetings are things like: going paperless, setting up secure online customer portals, setting up remote access for branch workers, and setting up video conferencing systems.  You see, big picture improvements.  Also, ideas like moving some workers to thin clients, or setting up virtualized servers.  Then, we decide on which projects are important, assign timing, and execute them.  These are decided so that these things get done, and so that technology becomes a competitive advantage rather than an overhead item.

One of my favorite quotes is, "Through planning, anything is possible."  We believe that.  Planning allows us to implement the new technologies that are applicable to your business.
