Typical Medium Size Businesses
We understand all businesses are unique and there is no one-solution-fits-all answer. However, we frequently find the following:
Medium sized businesses are tending to have more complicated IT requirements than small businesses, but not have any highly experienced IT staff to help them. Frequently, they have also grown from being a small company without changing their IT systems, and are experiencing pain from trying to get things working as they now require.
Typically, IT is seen as being slow, unreliable, and complicated and as such can be a business headache; or the Business lacks trust in someone to implement their required project.
PQ Services are experienced in small and medium (and large) companys, we can offer you the necessary support and skills to get your systems into a state suitable for you and your future plans. If you expect to grow rapidly we can design growth and flexibility in; whereas if you expect to remain the sane size then we can optimise what you have and remove your pain for the foreseeable future.
How we can help
See our project list on the upper-right menu, but for companies of your size we can add value by:
- Working with your exsiting IT guy to improve his skills; resolve outstanding issues; and to put simple processes and controls in place to make his life easier whilst improving his service to the business
- Implement a deployment and update solution so your IT guy can support the business, not run around manually installing things on computers
- Implement an Operating System Deployment system so PCs can be built to a high standard allowing your IT guy to spend his time supporting the business, not doing trivial installation tasks
- Audit your Backup and Recovery plan to ensure your business is protected in the event of computer/server failure or indeed full site loss.
- Cover your IT Manager or IT Support for sickness or holiday cover to ensure your business does not suffer when they are unavailable
- Provide advice and work with you to ensure your infrastructure is the most suitable available for your budget and requirements, and ensure it is configured and tuned in a way that meets your business needs. Anyone can install a server network. Installing it well so that it can be forgotten about allowing you to focus on your business is the more difficult part
- Finally, work with you to allow you to run your business and not worry about your IT systems holding you back or being unreliable. You are expert in your business field. We are expert in making IT systems work for you.
