Benefits of technology business reviews

Most small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) don’t possess the resources to run and maintain their IT infrastructure, let alone assess whether it’s still driving value for the company. However, if you want to ensure everything is running smoothly, it’s important to conduct technology business reviews with us.

A technology business review reveals the strengths and weaknesses of your company’s IT framework. It’s often performed by our team and gives an objective assessment of your technology and provides recommendations to help you meet your goals. If done properly, technology business reviews allow you to:

Enhance Information Security and Compliance

Any business that is connected to the internet is exposed to Information Security risks. Technology business reviews can serve as a strategy session for reasonable steps that your organization can take in order to help reduce some of your Information Security risks while still keeping costs under control and your employees operating as efficiently as possible. During technology business reviews we discuss the latest cybersecurity risks including social engineering employees and the importance of a layered approach to Information Security. If you operate a business that’s subjected to data regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) let’s discuss your specific compliance needs during our meeting.

Budget for Technology Expenses and Timing

Every review starts with a Multi-Year IT Roadmap and high-level budget. We are big fans of doing more with less wherever possible and this theme frequently comes up during the roadmap discussion so that we can save clients as much as possible with proper advanced planning of strategic IT initiatives.

Increase Productivity

System-wide reviews of your IT infrastructure and management discussions allow us to maximize your employees’ productivity with their technology. For example, if employees are mainly sharing files via email, we might suggest collaboration platforms, like Office 365, file servers, or other cloud solution providers, that store data in a centralized location for seamless file sharing.

Considering that new technologies are released at a breakneck pace, it’s important to pick those that will help you achieve your business goals. Technology business reviews keep you up to date on the latest technology trends and gauge the impact of implementing them so that you can make informed decisions.

Whether your goal is to increase profits, productivity, security, or all of the above, technology business reviews can put you on the right track. Our team can conduct these reviews for you and develop a strategy that gives you an edge over the competition. Just give us a call.
