IT Consulting

We have been doing this for a long time, and we have wisdom to offer well beyond the value of the things we sell.

All of our consulting services can also be applied to situations where you need advice from a different source to the supplier of your hardware and software. This service is available nationwide.

What we do:

Technology Roadmap Planning and Consulting

You need advice on how your business plan will be supported by your future IT and telecommunications assets. We will listen to your story and create a technology roadmap that allows you to budget and plan.

Change Consulting

Maybe your business is planning to expand or contract, or split into multiple sites, or change your core line-of-business software? We will look at what you want to achieve and design network systems to support your vision. We can also manage the process of getting quotes and proposals from third parties for design, supply, installation and support.

Software Licensing Advice

Think I.T. is a Microsoft Certified Partner in the Network Infrastructure, Licensing Solutions and Small Business Specialist competencies. Along with our many years of experience in software licensing, these qualifications mean we can design licensing schemes that are both cost effective and appropriate to your enterprise’s size.

Proposal Vetting

Perhaps you have a trusted or long-term provider of IT services who is quoting on a large project, and you want to ensure you will be making a good investment at a fair price. Getting multiple quotes or proposals for a project does not mean that the cheapest or most impressively presented is the best.

We will examine your provider’s quote alongside the stated business requirement, then comment on the suitability and price. As we will not be quoting in competition, you can be assured that your existing relationships will not suffer from the process. We will always act to preserve the trust between the parties.

Ethical standards note: We must exclude ourselves from proposing or quoting in competition to any proposal or quote that we are vetting.

Network Survey

We will survey, document and describe your computer network. We will comment on its state of health and how it conforms to industry standards. We will comment on the way the network is maintained. We will make recommendations for remediation and improvements where appropriate.

Network Audit

We will check that your system’s components and functionality conform to your records and expectations, note deviations and comment on remediation. Please note that auditing is only available as a third party service.

Ethical standards note: We will not audit a network we have built, and we must exclude ourselves from charging to make any of the improvements or remediation we recommend when we have audited a network built or maintained by another provider.
