Offering Business IT Services in Oregon and Washington
Looking for IT Services for your PDX Business?
Technology has revolutionized our world, and continues to do so at a pace that almost seems maddening. Small Businesses face new challenges on an almost daily basis. Managers continually ask themselves multiple variations on the following questions: "do we merely adopt whatever is new, even if it is perhaps untested?" and "What if a particular innovation is a blind path or a technological dead end?"
Early adopters may by able to gain a huge advantage on their competitors, but what if a particular innovation is too advanced, and customers, clients, and staff are not able to make sense of it or use all of its features? Will it be worthwhile to retrain staff in a new technology that later proves less than useful? Will there be "network externalities" in the form of other people using compatible systems that make the adoption of a new innovation worthwhile? Will support be available in the future? Is it worthwhile to simply do what everyone else is doing?
We can help. Smart IT Firm provides technology solutions for all of the complex IT challenges businesses face nowadays.
Common questions include: Is the cloud the right choice for my small business?
The cloud has been an exciting innovation spanning every aspect of work and personal life. The cloud is a technological solution that you are likely already using. If you are not too concerned about backing everything up on thumb drives or other hard media, you are already reliant on the cloud. For instance, your email service typically will continuously and automatically back up your drafts and emails without you prompting it. The vast economies of scale and security that can be provided by major cloud IT companies can give you additional peace of mind. And of course you can always rely on your own hard media as an extra on site backup. We can help guide your use of cloud services, integrating your firm's operations with the service of a major provider.
Is there a cost effective telephone solution for my business?

We can work with your firm to find the most advanced technology solutions that are appropriate for your business needs and create a new profit center.
Are we protecting our data the right way and do we have a disaster recovery plan?
