Questions and answers
Find out how we do what we do
Q: Are IT Directors just for large organisations with lots of IT staff?
A: Historically yes, businesses tend to employee an IT Director when they feel a certain level of management or direction is needed. At Economit we are turning this process on its head and offering businesses the Independent consultancy to enable them to avoid being charged over the odds and reduce IT expenditure.
Q: Most IT consultants are expensive so I'm assuming this service is costly?
A: Here at Economit we pride ourselves in delivering Independent IT Consultancy in order to reduce our clients IT expenditure, by doing this we usually reduce IT expenditure by more than double our consultancy fees.
Q: My current IT service provider gives me advice on what products to buy so I don't think I need this service?
A: IT Service providers align themselves to manufacturers or sell their own services such as IT support meaning it's impossible to be sure if their advice is based on your best interests or theirs. Independent advice and consultancy is something Economit guarantees, we do not accept commissions or referral fees from any third parties and that's our promise.
Q: Can you help my business streamline its processes?
A: Yes. This is a large part of our IT assessments and on-going IT Director service. Our monthly meetings are designed for our clients to table business objectives and also for your Economit IT Director to bring fresh new ideas and ways of working for your business to consider.
Q: Why do I need an Independent IT Assessment when my IT Manager or IT support provider already maintains my infrastructure?
A: We provide independent IT advice to businesses arming them with the knowledge to ensure total IT efficiency and transparency. Typically, IT support providers and IT Managers are given budgets to spend and provide break fix IT services. Economit will not only police this process on behalf of the business but also create a coherent, cost-effective IT strategy moving forward.
Q: I've been with my IT provider for years and totally trust what they tell me, why would I need Economit?
A: Gaining trust with an IT provider is a good thing and something we encourage at Economit. Here we call this the 'Comfort Zone'. This is where a business totally relies on their chosen provider whom is never benchmarked against competitors in the local market place. The only way to be sure you are getting a deal is to have an independent consultant offer their viewpoint - this is where Economit comes in.
Q: Do you offer IT Support like my current provider?
A: No. We assess your businesses' use of IT, marry this to your business objectives and then create an independent cost effective IT strategy. We get the planning right and find the best fit partners to put it in to place for you. We also make sure whatever is put in place has been done to a satisfactory standard with the best interests of our client in mind every step of the way.
Q: I own a small business and an IT strategy sounds over kill for me.
A: In the past IT strategies have been something larger organisations have considered however with the fast rate that technology changes and the pricing and availability of business software that has previously been limited to larger businesses with larger budgets, small businesses are presented with more options than ever before making it difficult to choose best fit solutions. In our experience, with choice comes confusion and that can lead to escalating costs or your business being mis-sold to. We ensure sure this doesn't happen.
