When you work with a small firm, you can get decisions and answers almost immediately.
Duluth, GA (Vocus) December 9, 2009
The experts at IT support provider Guidance Consulting have always known that large IT consulting firms have dominated the market for technology support services for years, in everything from the fields of education and online storefronts to healthcare. However, the company is now finding that in today's market, there is a new focus on smaller, more personalized firms that can offer specialized services at a fraction of the cost.
The first company to report on this new phenomenon was healthcare research firm KLAS, which found that smaller IT firms are better at everything from planning and assessment to staff support. Guidance Consulting, Inc., an IT firm operating out of Georgia, reinforces these findings with an emphasis on more than just the healthcare field.
“What they found in the healthcare field is that the smaller companies like Guidance Consulting have to be more competitive,” says Guidance Consulting senior consultant Ronald Gottilla. “We have to offer better rates and better services in order to compete. So that's just what we've done.”
The IT field is one that is always changing and developing, particularly when it comes to issues like the latest in vulnerability protection needs. Larger IT companies are slower to adapt by virtue of size, and there's simply no way around it. “You've got layers of bureaucracy to get through in a large IT company,” asserts Gottilla. “When you work with a small firm, you can get decisions and answers almost immediately.”
Of course, it's impossible to ignore the dollars and cents side of things, as well. Although skimping out on IT protection is never a good way to ensure a company's safety against viruses and attacks, cutting costs is one of the most important measures business leaders can take in today's economy. Cutting costs by hiring a smaller IT consultant firm is often the ideal solution, since companies don't have to take a hit to quality even if they're paying less.
“When you hire a company like Guidance Consulting,” adds Gottilla, “you also get the benefits of our IT staffing department. If you're cutting costs by getting rid of an internal IT department, we can not only provide the protection planning you need, but we can supply you with temporary employees to get you through the rough patches.”
