The LCO Group leverages it’s 10+ years of technology experience for you!
Deciding on which technology (hardware, software or service) to incorporate into your business can be a daunting task. Manufacturers and vendors may hype their technology as a must have in order to run your business effectively. Friends or peers are more than happy to advise you on the best storage device, PDA, wireless access point or CRM solution.
Don’t implement just for technology’s sake
Where do you start? How do you determine which technology to implement? How do you separate hype from reality? While it may be obvious, we have seen small businesses implement new technologies without understanding its impact, associated support and maintenance, or the real business benefit. You should never implement a new technology for the sake of the technology.
Benefit from our experience
The LCO Group has over 20 years of experience in managing and supporting IT networks for small businesses. We have assisted thousands of clients, evaluate, implement and support numerous technologies. We are experienced with Windows, Macintosh and Novell platforms. Many industries have applications specific to their industry and The LCO Group is very knowledgeable with a large number of them. If we are not familiar, we will either partner with a software expert or learn the technology so we can support it.
Get peace of mind with security, backup and disaster strategies
No matter what type of business, there are specific technologies that we recommend to all clients. For example, we recommend that all companies implement IT security strategies to protect the network, data and users. Most companies implement backup solutions as part of the security strategy, but many do not have a disaster recovery plan to follow in the event of a major issue or natural disaster.
Understand how mobile technologies can boost your business
Mobility solutions have become an everyday reality to enable flexible work schedules and enhance productivity while traveling. Connecting remote users and locations can help you expand and grow your company across time zones or geographic boundaries.
We help you benefit from emerging technologies–when the time is right
Emerging technologies are always intriguing and in general, small businesses are slower to adopt them. However, some companies are forced to implement earlier than they would like because of vendor, supplier or partner needs. We’ll help you choose the right timing or handle sudden changes.
