Cost-effective Network Support Solutions
Many small businesses utilize poor metrics when searching for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is seldom a reliable measure for value. A consultant with insufficient technical background can take many times longer to perform the identical task than an experienced Information Technology professional. As an example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is hardly a bargain. Still worse, a poorly architected or implemented IT infrastructure that is undependable and hard to manage or expand can cost an organization many times more than its initial price due to lost productivity.
