IT Consultants

Your business needs the right combination of information technology (IT) to be productive and competitive in the modern business environment. If you are starting a new business or a sole trader, you may be able to get away with a simple setup in the early days, but as your business grows and you have to handle more customers and employees, your IT needs will also expand, and this is when you should hire IT consultants or use managed IT services.

What is an IT consultant? 

An IT consultant is an expert in analysing, designing, building and integrating IT systems to improve your business’s capabilities and efficiency. They can manage IT projects such as migration to cloud services, enhancing IT support or transferring to managed IT services. You can hire freelance consultants or IT consulting companies to help you out. 

What’s the difference between IT consulting and managed IT services? 

IT consulting is about improving or setting up your business’s IT, while managed IT services handle and deliver IT services to your business, like outsourcing. An IT consultant should be able to advise you on the best managed IT services and IT support to hire. 

Which is better, IT consulting or IT advisory services? 

The better service boils down to your capabilities, knowledge and needs. Small businesses with a highly competent IT department can choose IT advisory services instead of IT consulting, which is more hands-on and requires IT project management and execution. 

Who should hire IT consultants?

 Small businesses without a strong IT team or new businesses should consider hiring IT consultants. They can advise on the best IT setup within your budget, improve the business’s productivity and security, and counsel on whether using managed IT services and outsourced IT support is best for you. 

How to hire the best IT consulting company for your business? 

Here’s how to hire the best IT consulting company for your business: 

  • Be clear on your goals and needs
  • Be realistic about scope, budget and timeline
  • Consider their experience. Some business consulting companies provide IT consulting too but may not have a depth of experience handling complex IT projects. 
  • Read their reviews. Connect with previous clients or read their online reviews if applicable. 
  • Look at their integration work. New IT systems or cloud services should integrate seamlessly with your existing setup. 
  • Talk to them. It’s always better to chat with them first to gauge whether you can work together and to sniff out any red flag. 
  • Consider the total cost. Always read the fine print and ask about modifications and issues that may affect the pricing. 
  • IT support. Once a project is delivered, you need to account for maintenance and support work.
  • Measure the ROI. The return on investment should always outweigh the cost because a great IT system should improve your business.
