Cost-effective Network Support Solutions
Many small companies utilize poor metrics when searching for a computer network consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a good measure for value. A consultant with insufficient experience can take many times longer to perform the identical task than a seasoned IT expert. For example, billing 30% less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is not a bargain. Still worse, a badly architected or implemented network environment that is undependable and difficult to administer or upgrade can cost a small business many times over its initial price because of lost productivity.
