What Different Businesses Need and Don’t Need in Their IT Support
Regardless of industry, from corporate legal firms to residential real estate brokerages, there are several common IT support requirements. From cybersecurity to leveraging the cloud appropriately for your business, no two solutions will look exactly alike. This is not to say, however, that some businesses need robust cybersecurity while others do not.
In the Cloud
Cloud computing is one area in particular where different businesses can leverage completely different solutions. Let’s compare the needs of a legal firm and a real estate brokerage.
Agents and support staff have relied heavily on mobility solutions to be able to accomplish their work for years. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed every business’s workplace strategy, but real estate agents have seen more of an evolution in their business practices than a wholesale transformation.
An experienced IT firm can ensure that they have the tools they need to access cloud-based CRM platforms, market data, and centralized support tools provided by their brokerage.
Whether legal professionals are focused on litigation, consulting, or anything else, collaboration among several professionals is critical, and no time can be wasted due to inefficient systems. Layered on top of systems that simply have to work, security is of the utmost importance.
It takes an experienced IT provider to be able to configure public, private, and hybrid cloud infrastructures in a way that aligns with the particular needs of businesses dealing with highly confidential information like a legal firm.
It takes a different approach to restore the systems of a small business with 10 employees versus a large-scale manufacturer. Relying on the same data backup solution, in either case, is both inadequate for the threats that these two businesses could face and for the actual systems to be restored.
LISS Technologies takes a consultative approach to each of our partners. Whether you need your systems instantly restored in the event of a cyber attack or redundant data backup to protect critical information, we’ll build a solution that fits your unique needs.
Some companies need high-touch branding and mobile app design while others need geographical advertising and direct mail solutions. Whatever the situation, everything relies on a powerful web presence. After all, once someone gets your mailer, what’s the next step? Usually not a phone call.
Apps and websites are the windows consumers use to see what a company is all about, and what they might find can vary dramatically depending on your products, services, and the overall industry.
A well-designed website is often the key to converting a prospect into a customer. In today’s digital economy, you probably already knew that. So, what is there to do? The answer is simple: connect with a proven outsourced developer that can get to know your goals, your customers, and your organization.
Why All of This Matters
Different organizations in different industries have a wide range of IT needs, so it’s important not to simply turn to a provider that offers managed services without explaining where their expertise lies. Otherwise, it’s impossible to know if your needs are truly being met.
It is also important to consider not just the industry a particular business is in, but its size. Smaller companies looking to downsize their IT, in particular, are in a tough spot because they may not be able to afford the internal staff but they also can’t afford to miss out on vital IT services that keep their business alive. Liss Technologies solves that problem with an affordable, custom-tailored solution that is adapted to each of our partners’ unique situations.
