Infrastructure Planning

OPENMIND Technologies, has the knowledge and experience you are looking for in a computer consulting company focused on helping small businesses make wise decisions regarding their network.

Here is why.

Successful companies, large and small, rarely make business decisions without a clear goal or plan in place. Business today is fiercely competitive. One wrong move or misallocation of resources could be disastrous. Good, solid, trustworthy advice is more important than ever. When successful companies need to make critical decisions, they seek out those who have delivered proven results.

How We Do Planning

Firstly, we will compile a Comprehensive technology evaluation and recommendations report.

This method is our systematic way of approaching technology decision-making. Ultimately our goal is to give you the information and tools for making thoughtful and appropriate decisions for your business, whether it is network planning, network upgrades, or computer network maintenance.

Your customized Technology Evaluation and Recommendations report will include the following:

1. Documentation of your business goals
2. Documentation of your existing network
3. Evaluation and comparison of your business goals, existing network and industry best practices
4. Technology recommendations for all critical elements of your network based on the evaluation
5. Detailed projected software, hardware and labor budget
6. Detailed reasons, benefits and goals met for each recommendation
7. Prioritization of each recommendation based on importance to achieving your business goals

Which Way is The Best Way?

There are actually many ways to accomplish the same goal. Some are better than others, and one is usually the clear winner. So how do you know which way is right? In business, we call that right way a “Best Practice.” Unfortunately for most small businesses, the technology planning and technology consulting they are offered falls far short of Best Practices. They usually get their computer planning from friends, relatives, the local computer mega-store sales person, or someone in their office who is “pretty good” with computers. What they end up with is usually a lot of “budget” computer equipment that doesn’t do what they had hoped and seems to have more problems than it should. In short, it becomes an expensive disappointment.

Our adherence to best practices for network planning, as well as our team’s expertise in the small business environment, gives us a unique advantage over individuals or companies who are concerned primarily with fixing what is broken or delivering cookie cutter answers instead of implementing the correct solutions for your business goals.
