Experience has shown us that most people spend money on technology out of necessity or the fear that if they don’t spend the money, everything will stop working. Organizations often spend more than they should when they reach a technology crisis. Often those costs could have been avoided if they had a complete understanding of when they might hit that technological “brick wall”. Many suppliers and vendors of technology products sell the equivalent of “extended warranties” or “insurance” on their products. Sometimes these are good investments, many times they are not.
We also find that many customers are overpaying for things like phone or internet services. We have been able to get more internet bandwidth or reduce phone service charges just by negotiating on your behalf with those service providers.
Steve Joyner Consulting Services does not sell or market technology equipment or software. We basically rent our brains, our experience, our advice, and our abilities to our customers. Some of the expenses of our service to our clients are often offset by eliminating those extras that many organizations don’t even know they are paying.
We ALWAYS bring additional value for the money you may be spending somewhere else. If we can’t, then you don’t need us. In one recent example we were able to provide weekly on-site support for around the same amount our client was spending for off-site support and other add-ons. We were also able to help with cost avoidance since this particular client was paying an outrageous hourly rate anytime a technology professional had to simply visit their location.
Our rate schedule is simple. We bill for the time we work OR we bill a flat rate for a specific project. It’s your choice. We also offer special rates for monthly and long term commitments. Best of all, you can cut us off anytime you want.
Every situation is different. We encourage you to invite us to look at what you’re currently spending to support your technology. Chances are we can offer you more value for your technology expenses.
We believe you should think big, do more, and spend less.
