As a business grows in size and complexity, GCC can help select the best technology to achieve growth targets. We can help you understand the best technology route to help you through your growing pains. As a technology solutions partner, we have the expertise to allow you to align IT to your immediate and long-term business objectives.
GCC Helps You Grow
As your company grows, it is critical for technology to support that growth. Managing growth means ensuring you have the correct technology in place to achieve long term business success. It means answering questions such as:
Is your IT platform reliable and stable?
Are your desktop and business applications running securely?
Are you outgrowing your core applications? Do you need more capacity and/or greater complexity?
Are your processes and IT integrated to maximise productivity?
Are you sufficiently agile and able to access information, when required, to make decisions?
Technology Solutions for Growth
We offer a structured approach to support clients when they make decisions to align technology with core business objectives. GCC offers the following solutions to support client growth.
Business – IT Alignment
We live in a digital business world. As a minimum, businesses rely on technology to operate effectively – indeed, many exist solely because of this technology. If your business is to thrive, or even survive, it must embrace technology as a key component of business strategy. Not doing so can hold you back, or even lead to business failure.
But is your IT adequately aligned to your business to make this possible? If not, what has to change?
GCC’s Technology Assessment (GTA) will help answer these questions. GTA offers a detailed assessment of the relationship between your current business processes and your current IT function. And we will confirm practical, prioritised plans to address any misaligned areas.
- Business Process Mapping
- IT Platform Audit
- Business Applications Audit
- GTA Report
Clients are provided with a concise GTA report to define the changes required to more closely align IT with the goals of the business. We can help you define your technology plans, a key element of your overall business strategy.
“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” Lewis Carroll
A technology roadmap is a plan that matches short-term and long-term goals with specific technology solutions to meet those objectives. For technology to truly serve your business, you need a clear, unobstructed view of which road to follow. This is your IT Roadmap.
To be effective, it will encompass the next 3 years; it should be agreed by the business management team and priorities need to be reviewed at least annually. It goes without saying that it has to be sufficiently funded.
With this IT Roadmap in hand, your technology issues are clear and you can be confident that they will support your business goals and priorities.
With over 20 years’ experience of SMB technology solutions, in many industry sectors, GCC can help you define an IT Roadmap that makes most sense for your business.
Business Software Selection
Choosing the right application software to run your business is one of the most important decisions you will make. This can be a difficult and time consuming task, one hopefully you don’t do very often. But when you do, you need to be sure that you’re making the right choices.
At GCC, we have a flexible approach to advise, direct and lead companies through the process of selecting the most appropriate software required for their core functions. The process starts with a focus on your specific business objectives. It involves supporting business stakeholders each step of the way. We help you manage the process, but you make the decisions and together we will find the right software for your business needs.
When it comes to implementing new technology, many SMB’s need extra capacity and skills to successfully execute a project. Leading a project which implements significant change in the way an organisation works is a specialised skill. In our experience, an independent, external team is often needed as clients cannot take on the extra work of the project without it impacting on day to day staff responsibilities.
With a broad network of talented consultants, GCC is well equipped to support you with a team that will ensure your system implementation is successful. We can provide experienced project management, senior technical and change management staff required to plan, design, implement and integrate your new systems.
