Having the latest tech gadget or the newest laptop does not necessarily translate into greater profitability if that gadget or laptop does not work within your technology environment. Licensing a great online application when your office building still uses dial-up internet connections does not make much sense. As part of Collectronics’ Consulting Services, Collectronics offers a complete audit of your technology environment from printers, to mobile devices, to your network and makes recommendations to improve your use of technology. Technology audits include analysis and recommendations regarding the following:
• Your software (i.e. time keeping and billing programs, accounting programs, contact management, online applications, version control, compatibility, integration, etc.).
• Your internal office equipment such as printers, scanners, desktops, laptops, etc.
• Your mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, Droids, etc.
• Your network configuration (i.e. terminal servers, mail servers, virtual machines, back-ups, disaster recovery and business continuity, etc.).
• Comprehensive overview and full needs analysis roadmap including budgeting and a timeline for upgrades and replacements
