3 Signs Your Company Needs IT Consulting

Posted by admin - Sep 5, 2017, 10:00 PM


Businesses hire IT consultants for a variety of reasons. Outside tech help can provide valuable insight on in-house systems issues that desperately need an objective eye. Unfortunately, too many businesses forego proper tech support because of fears over cost, logistics, and disruption.

At IT-HenHouse, we think there’s more to “IT consulting” than spreadsheets and cost analyses. What your business needs most is a partner…a solutions provider as committed to the success of your technology as you are. We’ve provided comprehensive IT services to hundreds of thriving companies. Here are three signs we’ve learned almost always means a business should bring in outside help.



  1. The business has outgrown its systems.

    Like people, businesses grow and evolve over time. Companies that are 5, 10, even 25 years old can have vastly different IT needs today than they did just a few years prior due to changes in services, scope, and even clientele. 

    If your businesses’ system (software or hardware) isn’t working for you anymore, it’s time to reevaluate. Some of the most common issues we see are a lack of capacity, limitations to customizability, and logistical hurdles. In some cases, a new software platform can solve a multitude of problems at once; other issues call for an overhaul of entire enterprise solutions. If you suspect your technology is holding your business back, it’s time to bring in an expert.
  1. A business is unsecure or lacks backup protection.

    Today’s business climate necessitates the secure storage of sensitive commercial data, from client files to payroll information. Too many businesses fail to realize how unprotected they actually are until it’s too late. Whether it’s hackers or a power surge your business is unprepared for, you’re vulnerable. There is no substitute for professional IT consulting when it comes to information security.

    As businesses grow, storage inevitably becomes a problem; is it time your company got in “the cloud?” From small businesses to multi-national corporations, data backup is imperative for longevity. If you haven’t given much thought to your proprietary data, you may already be exposed to potentially devastating consequences.
  1. A business is brand new.

    The absolute best thing a fledgling business can do for its long-term success is to set up its in-house technology systems correctly from the get-go. It’s easy to ignore IT needs until they become a huge roadblock; more often, new business owners simply piece together solutions one by one as a company grows, ending up with a system that’s disjointed and ineffective.

    Your technology should be specific to your business. Expert IT help is less expensive than you think, and its ROI is almost unparalleled when you consider the costs of bad technology on a growing business. From inventory software to vendor platforms to staff training, the right consultant can help you develop a plan that grows with your business.
