In the new era of IT consulting, you don’t pay for IT consulting. It’s free.
You’re not an IT director, you don’t have 30 years’ experience in technology and the long term direction of IT in the organization shouldn’t be a line in your job description. Yet, IT is your baby. You’re responsible for supporting the organization with appropriate technology. You’re the one responsible for finding the best solutions.
If this describes you to some degree, you may be considering an IT consultant. Traditionally, you would pay this person high dollar by the hour to learn about your organization and offer suggestions. However, it is a new era, and the way technology is delivered to an organization is changing. The network of securely connected devices in the cloud is revolutionizing small to medium-sized business (SMB) IT, and IT consulting and technology consulting in general is changing right along with it.
Claris is paving the way for this “new era” of IT consulting. Here’s how.
It is standard across the IT industry to charge by the hour for high level technology advice and strategy consultation. However, at Claris we think a little differently. We employ a team of Technical Account Managers (TAMs), who are former IT directors, CIOs and technology consultants. Their experience gives them insight into the ins and outs of SMB IT and they stay abreast of industry trends. Their sole purpose is to fully understand your business goals and objectives, match those goals and objectives to technology and to help guide you in making wise, long-term, strategic decisions for IT in your organization.
These team members are not commission-based and have no interest in selling you things you do not need. As part of our mission to provide you the best service you will ever experience, you get the benefit of a Chief Technology Officer for no cost.
Additionally, TAMs act as a liaison on your behalf to the rest of Claris Networks. They create effective communication channels between your company and your service provider. They develop strategic plans to guide the growth of your organization’s technology use. They are a sounding board for your ideas and opinions.
Anywhere else in the world, one would expect to pay many hundreds of dollars an hour for this level of expertise, experience and ability. At Claris, they’re just part of the package and an expression of how we want to provide the best service you will ever experience.
