THE IMPORTANCE OF PARTNERING WITH A SOLUTION PROVIDER LIKE VIVO
What’s your company’s “why?” Why does your company offer the services or products it does? To bake the finest chocolate chip cookies anyone has ever tasted? To design bespoke houses for clients who want the finest, most luxurious experience?
Whatever your “why” is, ultimately, your business has to do one thing above all others: Maximize profits. You can’t live out your “why” if your income is less than your outgo!
This means spending money wisely, getting an extension to your IT team, and keeping your IT infrastructure running in top shape. The best part? You can accomplish all three of those goals by partnering with a solution provider for your IT needs.
WHY YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS AN IT SOLUTIONS PARTNER
The need for IT is now more critical than ever with hybrid teams becoming the norm. As technology is constantly changing, it’s near impossible for smaller IT teams to be experts in all things and partnering with a solution provider to help guide you on long-term strategy becomes more important.
Here are some key benefits for you when partnering with an experienced solution providers:
AUGMENT YOUR STAFF
As an extension of your team, you partner with industry experts who help with strategy, identify effective tools and solutions, answer questions, fix problems, and provide agnostic feedback, and keep you updated with the latest technology features and trends without hiring new employees.
If you have an IT team currently in-house, you can supplement that team with added support for routine maintenance, special projects, and the deployment and adoption of new tools.
As a unified communications and collaboration solution provider, Vivo can help augment your staff with our knowledge and consultative approach to help keep our customer’s teams doing what they are good at instead of focusing on internal issues.
Vivo offers adoption services to help with deployment of new technology so that users can quickly learn how to use the technology or get the help they need.
YOUR TEAM OF EXPERTS
Because the company you hire lives and breathes IT, they’re going to have to stay on top of the latest tech trends and hardware/software developments, so they can recommend solutions for your specific needs, then come on-site to oversee installation.
With an outsourced team, their industry connections should be stronger, so they may have an easier time sourcing hard-to-get parts or devices.
A company that specializes in IT services will include top-tier employees with years of experience in the industry.
In recent years, many companies have had to reduce staff or have employees take on multiple roles with IT departments left to take on more responsibilities. This can leave staff members jostling to get the time and attention of your IT personnel for the critical support they need to get their work done.
Your IT services provider has one job and one job only: supporting you.
CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR BUSINESS
Your business is unlike any other. Your particular niche in the market, your specific employees, your branding, your corporate goals — all of that is unique. There’s no single IT infrastructure that works for everyone, and hiring an IT services provider is like getting a customizable IT experience. A great provider will work with you to choose phone systems, room systems, workstations, operating systems, network solutions, and anything else technology-related. Whether you need help round the clock, for a limited time, or during specific projects, your IT services provider will work around your schedule.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PROVIDER
Don’t just run out and hire the first IT services provider you find on Google. Do a little research to make sure they’re going to serve you well. Here are some important aspects to take into consideration:
Infrastructure building/maintenance ability
Types of industries served
Clients and markets served
You should be able to depend on your IT services provider to ensure you’re set up for success. Do some research and make sure they’ll be a partner you can trust with the keys to your IT infrastructure. And specifically in the realm of hybrid work environments, Vivo Technologies offers customized solutions specific to your organization’s unified communications and collaboration needs.
