If you run a computer consulting company and want to be successful with your business, you need to get IT (Information Technology) right.
WHY DO COMPUTER CONSULTING COMPANIES GET VIRTUAL IT WRONG?
A lot of IT professionals make the mistake of getting wrapped up in technology and neglecting the business side of their work. This practice will relegate your computer consulting company to the bottom of the list for most prospects. You need to make recruiting and keeping clients your first priority and not the latest gadgets. Your job is to recommend sophisticated IT solutions and truly be a “virtual IT” department for your clients.
MIX COMPUTER CONSULTING AND VIRTUAL IT
What is “virtual IT”?
Virtual IT lets your computer consulting company act as an extension of clients’ companies. You become the outsourced IT department for your clients’ small businesses.
When you own a computer consulting company that serves this purpose, you will become everything IT-related for your clients. Like any multi-faceted internal IT department, your virtual IT computer consulting business will have to be able to offer complete solutions that includes help desk, desktop support, network administration, engineering, security, training, procurement and asset management.
THE BOTTOM LINE ABOUT VIRTUAL IT
Many computer consulting companies don’t fully understand the concept of virtual IT and how it relates to their business. They become obsessed with technology instead of really embracing business opportunities. You have to build virtual IT into every business decision you make for your company or you will never make it long term.
