Why You Need More From Your IT Consulting

Let’s face it, hiring IT consultants can be a dicey process. A lot of technical consulting firms have a team with a mixed-bag skillset; you never know if you’re hiring a superb generalist or a true expert. And on the other end of the spectrum, consultants with an impressive pedigree can quickly eat away at your budget.

Yet, your end goal in both situations is the same: as an IT leader, you need to hire people you can trust, who can execute, and who fall within your budget. This concept is the foundation behind iT1’s commitment to achieving far beyond the minimum vendor requirements for delivering IT solutions to our clients.

Average IT consulting doesn’t cut it.

Education, training, and certifications—these are cornerstones of our business. In today’s competitive market, you can’t afford to be just average. This applies to our clients’ businesses and it applies to iT1’s business. “Checking the box” and doing the bare minimum, with anything—whether it’s an engagement, a certification, account management—won’t get you far.

No one partners with anyone because of their average expertise. Partners come to us because they trust us to deliver expert IT consulting. To be that trusted advisor, every single person on our team needs to possess the deep technical knowledge required to drive successful engagements.IT Consulting

HPE Sales Certified

Here’s a recent example of this commitment in action. To become an HPE Platinum Partner, HPE requires eight people on a team to have HPE Sales Certifications. Rather than knock the eight minimum sales certifications off our list, we recently hosted training for 26 of our sales professionals. The HPE sales program focuses on four core business outcomes: Transforming to a Hybrid Infrastructure, Protecting the Digital Enterprise, Empowering Data-driven Organizations, and Enabling Workplace Productivity.

Taking the time and making the investment to train our entire sales team means that we have a workforce that is confident, knowledgeable and prepared to guide our clients on the path to real business transformation.
