The Importance of Getting an IT Assessment

Your business’s IT isn’t a living thing, but in many ways it behaves as one. The symptoms that it isn’t working as it should can be obvious, like the internet not connecting, or the phones going out. Or subtle unfiltered spam messages hitting everyone’s inbox, or outdated hardware that struggles to keep up with a fast-paced office.

Regardless of what your business does, your IT is an important part of your operation, which means it is critical to have an idea of the relative health and well-being of the system as a whole. This is where professional help can serve you best and SBT Partners are experts at IT assessment and upgrades.

Is everything working?

Lengthy downtimes are frustrating to employees and customers alike. Your IT is supposed to assist you in doing your business, not hinder it. As part of our assessment, we come to your business to analyze your physical IT environment and infrastructure as well as your internal policies and procedures. This gives you a complete report about all aspects of your IT including:

  • Performance
  • Ease of use
  • Inefficiencies
  • Security
  • VoIP
  • Cloud computing
  • Disaster recovery
  • Compliance

Our IT assessment will grade your current for these aspects and more. This gives us a baseline to identify the critical deficiencies in your system and make professional recommendations for improvements.

What can be improved?

Some of the deficiencies of your system may be obvious but these can be symptoms of larger problems and the only way to find out is to have a professional investigate and test the system. A comprehensive IT assessment by a trained eye can find areas where things can be more efficient, more understandable, and allows you and your employees to do their jobs without needless hassle and delays.

Where are you vulnerable?

When was the last time you had a thorough security assessment? If you aren’t sure or if you would direct this to your IT person, then your company is in serious need of one. Threats from hackers surface every day and just because your business is small does’t mean it can avoid a determined hacker. In fact, your business’ size makes it a prime target for cyber crime. This puts your customers and your business at considerable risk. But it is risk that is unnecessary, as a few investments and a solid security policy can make your business secure and compliant. SBT Partners has helped hundreds of clients analyze and bolster their internet security measures.

What is your plan for the future?

One of the biggest mistakes that businesses make in regards to their IT is they see it as an expense and not an investment. Choosing the least expensive option or ignoring IT issues when they come up because they cost money to fix is the wrong way to view how your ITworks. Your security, the hardware and software you choose is essential to running your business safely and efficiently. The businesses that plan for the future and take the time to decide what is really needed are the ones that get the most return from their investment. This is an aspect where SBT Partners can really provide value. Our IT professionals can judge your current and future IT use and develop a roadmap to make sure your business stays efficient and safe for years to come.
