We needed to upgrade our operational systems due to the fact that our system at the time was outdated, did not perform all the functions that were required of our business and was no longer supported by our vendor. YVCIO came in and interviewed us to learn our business and used this information to prepare a detailed report and proposal showing us our options, the benefits and disadvantages of each option and estimated costs associated with each option. This first step in the process was very helpful because it identified our needs and made the eventual choices we made much easier to make.
After choosing to buy an existing software package (as opposed to custom built software), they did all the legwork in evaluating multiple packages for our business, taking into account our requirements in functionality and price. This included testing the packages to ensure the software did what the vendor said it did. Then, after the purchase, they performed installations and even helped with training and implementation.
In the end, I found this service extremely beneficial for multiple reasons. First, I am not a software expert, therefore, dealing with software vendors who typically don’t speak my language, is not something I am used to doing. Second, their experience in working with outside vendors and software in general was invaluable in making this implementation become the success it has. Lastly, YVCIO did exactly what they said they would do. And I trust them implicitly, since the solution that they recommended to us was not the solution that would generate the most revenue for them, but was the solution that was the best choice for us.
I highly recommend YVCIO for your Information Technology needs.
