We get asked all the time, “What makes Techify different?”
Well, a number of years ago, we asked our clients, “What is it that’s really needed from a technology partner, from an IT partner?”
The feedback they gave us was:
- We want a truly proactive company
- We want someone that’s focused on preventing technical problems, not just fixing them when we call in
- We want a regular flow of advice that’s based on what other organizations are doing — what’s working for other businesses and organizations in allowing them to be more successful in terms of how they use technology
So, we said, okay, our clients want a proactive company. We want to be a proactive company. We don’t want to be judged just on the last thing we fixed.
Next, we scoured our client base and we looked at what was working in terms of hardware and software, and we turned that into a series of best practices. And we’ve grown that over the years, and now we have over 700+ best practices!
Then we spun up a dedicated team, that is focused on auditing, reviewing and aligning our clients to these best practices. We call that process “Techification.” And our Techification team is a unique, proactive team that is the foundation of what we do, and allows our clients to get much different results. This leads to a much more effective consulting process, that allows us to help organizations develop better technology strategies and better roadmaps.
And the foundation of everything we do comes out of those processes. And through that, we’re able to get much different results than your typical IT company.
A proactive Intelligent Technology Roadmap gives businesses the strategy that they need to reduce stress around tech, and to achieve greater success. There are three parts to an effective Roadmap:
1. Technology: This is the hardware and software needed to effectively run your business. You need to have that predictive budget and predictive plan around technology so your business isn’t susceptible to work stoppages due to tech issues. And you can predict this four to five years out into the future.
2. Security: This is about mitigating risk, and the risks are huge — particularly as more employees than ever before are working remotely. And all it takes is for a staff member to click on the wrong link and hundreds of thousands of dollars can end up in the hands of the wrong people (we’ve seen this happen more than once). And if you aren’t proactively looking at your company’s security setup, it’s not a question of if, but when, your business will get hacked.
3. Productivity: What if you could save four hours per week, per employee? It’s possible. But without a proactive productivity roadmap that gives businesses specific initiatives to work on quarter after quarter, a lot of businesses have more employees than they need. There is likely duplication, or manual process, or too much paper. Essentially, technology is not being used effectively. Businesses are paying more for technology, but getting less.
