Today’s technology is critical to the success of all businesses, regardless of shape and size. Technology is supposed to be an enabler, something that makes business easier. So why is it so hard? The answer is not difficult or complex. In Jim Collins’ “Good to Great,” he calls us to focus on what is core to our business. Forming strategic partnerships, when necessary, is critical to organizational growth and operational efficiency. Therefore, if you are not a technology company, partner with someone that is. Make no mistake, having someone else manage or support a critical part of your organization is no small step. This is why Farwell created the IT General Contractor to help our clients simplify their technology environment.
Much like a construction general contractor hired to plan and manage a building project, the Farwell IT General Contractor (GC) manages all aspects of your technology needs, from strategy through implementation and on-going support. Simply put, it is an entire IT department that integrates seamlessly into your business.
An IT GC is a senior-level technology leader that works closely with your leadership to assess and plan your technology needs. Once your requirements are understood, a roadmap is built that identifies both short-term and long-term goals. The GC provides communication and education to your team while securing the technical resources necessary to complete the work. As solutions are implemented, an operational support plan will be built and executed ensuring that the investments you make will provide maximum value. New and existing solutions will be operationally updated and maintained ensuring that they continue to support your needs over the long-term. All of this work is completed by a team of experts provided by the GC who maintains responsibility and accountability for all of your supported technologies.
Technology is our core business. We remove the complexity and headaches that can come from poorly managed technology and help you to get the most out of your investments. Let us do what we do best so you can focus on growing your business.
