The great motivational speak Tony Robbins often says, “Doing the right thing at the wrong time = PAIN”. We have tweaked this phrase for our clients and often say: “The right vendor for the wrong company = PAIN”. You need the right solution and provider that meets your exact company needs, and specific objectives.
As an example, if a company needs a new firewall, what is the right choice among so many firewall vendors? Is it a 30-minute task to just get a quote? Manufacturers include: Cisco, WatchGuard, SonicWall (owned by Dell), Ubiquity, Linksys, Fortinet, Sophos, Netgear and many more.
For our regular clientele, as well as companies that hire us for tech projects, we follow a straight forward project plan. We first create a project plan of what the project or long-term objectives are. We will then review various vendors, solutions, and price points to come up with 2- 3 proposals for us to review together ad discuss the pros and cons of each option.
