What is an IT Consultant?… And how can one help me?

Place simply, an IT consultant is someone who helps you figure out how to boost sales and productivity through technology and communications. To do this, they question the questions you never thought to question, from the most basic to the more complex: “Do you need a T1 line for high speed Internetwhen all you want is email?” or “How often do you need to back up your data?” and “What’s your  digital marketing thought?” and “Do you know what digital marketing is?”

They also get you thinking about your company’s IT infrastructure with questions along the lines of “What’s your data protection plot for your network and your customer database?  Where are you going to securely pile your vital customer information like contact information, buy histories or even medical histories? Is a unified VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone and Internet system right for your business? Do you want a full-time IT manager to handle this stuff or do you want to outsource as much as possible to a managed service provider (MSP)?”

Done right, like the way we do it at NSP NOC, this IT consultant delivers an action plot of concrete IT solutions that allows you to concentrate on running your business to its maximum potential. Best of all, help doesn’t have to be expensive and doesn’t require someone dedicated to an IT company. In fact, help can even come free of payment.
