IT Projects backed by IT Strategy
There’s no doubt about it: IT projects are complex. They require a unique combination of technology, people, and processes to complete successfully. And finding an IT firm that understands this and has a methodology to address it is rare. IT projects management are only successful when your IT firm understands people as much as the technology that’s driving them forward.
If you’re considering hiring an IT consultant to help you with your next IT project, here are some questions you should ask.
Top 10 Questions to Ask about IT Project Management
- How many years has your IT Firm been in business?
- What type of seminars does your IT Services firm attend to keep up with the latest emerging technologies?
- Is the IT Firm going to treat you like a number or are they going to have your best interest at heart?
- What qualifications does your firm have before taking on an IT Project?
- Has the IT Firm won awards in their industry to prove consistent results?
- Does the firm have a process to ensure that the IT Projects are on-time and on budget? (project manager, client dedicated CTO, etc.)
- Does the IT Firm provide specific options and a cost-benefit analysis to ensure you are getting the right technology within your IT budget?
- When it comes to IT Projects hardware can be more lucrative for the IT Firm. Are they researching and providing the best available technology that benefits the Client. (cloud hosting vs. on-premise)
- Does the IT Firm provide a lease to buy option for your IT Project?
- Does the firm provide a True Flat Rate or charge by the hour?
Unfortunately, not all IT firms are built equally. Some firms only offer a certain type of technology solution. Too often, the IT firm receives incentives or discounts from the software manufacturer, either on an installation basis or for meeting a sales quota. As such, they don’t always provide a truly independent analysis.
Whatever your needs are, it’s essential to find an IT firm that is going to partner with your organization and look out for your best interests.

What Our Cients Are Saying....
Dr. Sheila Birth
"We absolutely love CTG!!! As the lead Doctor for a busy orthodontic practice, we struggled for years with our tech support needs. We tried other companies, individuals and even friends and family- all with frustrating and ineffective results. From day one, CTG has been the solution we had long searched for! They're proactive, so they don't have to be reactive in a crunch later. They just keep our office running at full capacity without any worries. If an emergency does ever arise, they are on it right away and have it resolved in a timely manner. Their ticketing system is a dream and they are on top of everything! They make tech support look easy. I look forward to working with them for many more years to come!"
