There are times in a company’s life where it could use a hand from a third-party expert. Whether it’s a complex new system that your company is implementing or a complex problem that you need help seeing the solution for, IT consulting companies exist to ease the burden.
But what if you’re a small company, have a small budget, and don’t really know where to start? Our guest today explained that companies have a misconception that bringing in an IT consulting partner is a luxury for larger, more complex companies. She argues that that’s not the case. Host Shelby Skrhak sat down with Brandy Semore, director of professional services for Pinnacle Business Solutions, who shared four solid reasons to partner with an IT consultant.
Unbiased and focused attention, specialization, money savings, and taking on the burden of risk are the top reasons customers seek to partner with IT consultants like Pinnacle Business Solutions, Semore said.
“Offering specialization, I feel, is one of the most impactful benefits of being a VAR, or value-added reseller,” she said. “That way you don’t have to spend the time and money researching these solutions or getting trained because we absorb that burden.”
On the podcast, Semore broke down the importance of all four reasons, gave examples of potential cost savings, explained what she means by taking on the burden of risk for a company, and shared how an unbiased third party can help find solutions to IT headaches.
