It can be very daunting and frustrating for small businesses without dedicated IT personnel to deal with vendors on IT issues. This usually involves taking time away from the business to resolve issues. Even with an issue covered by a support contract, it usually means spending valuable time on the phone dealing with issues.

Why hire ezITech Consulting?
Technology is everywhere and plays an important role in running a business. But for most business owners, technology is simply a tool to run the business. Technology has the potential to increase efficiency, but implemented incorrectly it becomes a source of frustration, added cost and time, and does not add to the bottom line. Most small businesses cannot approach consultancies such as KPMG, Price WaterHouse Coopers, and Accenture because the price is out of reach for all but large corporations. CPAs and Business Management Consultants focus too broadly on all aspects of business and do not specialize in IT. Managed service providers primary focus is to sell a business on a product or service and can be biased. ezITech Consulting specializes exclusively in Information Technology and can use our experience to advise business owners on the best technology and implementation process to get the most out of the IT toolkit without being distracted from the business’ primary purpose. We are independent and not affiliated with any technology vendors. Our mission is to provide the best advice and recommendations based on the individual needs of a business. A small investment in ezITech Consulting services can save a business owner thousands of dollars in direct costs down the road, as well as frustration and time spent on managing technology. To see how ezITech Consulting can help you today, give us a call and move your project forward with the right advice.
