Small Business


For small businesses and startups with 1 to 50 users, Epsolon's IT services free you from dependence on an individual freelance consultant while giving you affordable, reliable access to enterprise-class technical expertise. By delivering professional know-how when you need it, providing specialized expertise in key applications, offering unique services Epsolon gives you an affordable way to maximize the business value of your business. Epsolon is the smart way for small businesses to build and maintain a reliable and secure information system and to have fast access to the skilled support ordinarily available only to businesses who can afford a large internal IT organization.

Epsolon's staff size, breadth and depth of technical expertise, and familiarity with enterprise IT allow small businesses to avoid the pitfalls associated with excessive reliance on smaller service organizations or independent freelance consultants.
 
Working with Epsolon you can Avoid Dependence on Individual Freelance Consultants for IT support small businesses often rely heavily on independent freelance consultants. Although freelance consultants carry less overhead than larger support organizations and can afford to charge marginally less, they are often stretched too thin to respond quickly to urgent situations. If an independent consultant is busy with another client, sick, on vacation or in training, the lack of backup personnel may force your business to wait for help during an emergency. As your small business grows, network downtime or problems with critical applications become more costly. The money you thought you were saving on a freelancer can be eaten up quickly by lost productivity.

You have Access to Expertise in Complex IT Solutions that many small service organizations or freelance consultants focused on small business IT support may excel at providing "connect-the-dots" solutions but lack the experience to deal cost-effectively with complex IT infrastructures with features such as multi-office connectivity, VPNs, mobile workforces, telecommuter support, integrated financial and operational applications, eCommerce, and custom software. Epsolon's enterprise experience can be valuable to your small business because enterprise environments are inherently complex, integration issues require in-depth knowledge in many IT disciplines, and achieving a high level of stability, reliability and security requires enterprise-proven best practices.

You can build a solid foundation for seamless growth with an IT system implemented on a shoestring budget. Lacking a proper foundation, a series of band-aid fixes often get piled on top of a weak foundation. As a business grows, stability and scalability issues can hinder the success of the organization. Such environments need proper assessment, intelligent strategic planning, and broad-based expertise to upgrade to an IT infrastructure that will provide the solid foundation to meet critical business needs and ease future growth.

Small businesses require guidance and education to navigate through an increasingly complex maze of technology options available for accelerating business growth and improving efficiency. They do not need an IT consultant who is trying to sell them a product. Epsolon avoids conflicts of interest by not selling any products. This allows Epsolon to align technical expertise with the best interests of clients. IT consulting and product selling can lead to a situation where the proposed solution is built around a predetermined technology rather than the genuine needs of a small business.

Each consultant brings a set of personal best practices from this extensive industry experience, and these are further refined by the company-wide best practices training that Epsolon instills in its consulting staff. This means you get not just expert technical skills, but a consultant with proven methods for how to apply those skills to solving real-world business problems successfully and in a repeatable fashion.
 
Epsolon charges a competitive hourly rate for services. Clients are not forced to waste money with retainers or minimum commitments that may result in paying for services that are never delivered. Epsolon does not add a surcharge for after-hours or emergency service, and does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours.
 
Epsolon has developed a sophisticated service reporting system that records and archives detailed documentation for all delivered services. Unlike freelance consultants who often provide scant documentation or details of services performed, every service provided by Epsolon is accompanied by comprehensive documentation. Every Epsolon staff member has full access to the service reports generated by every staff member to every client. The discipline of documenting and storing service records results in more efficient service and avoids a variety of common and unfortunate scenarios such as when a service customer is effectively held hostage to a consultant who won’t release the keys to the kingdom.
 
Epsolon is committed to knowledge transfer from our consultants to customers. By teaching clients to deal with problems that are within their comfort zone, Epsolon can focus on providing high-value services by helping clients resolve complex problems and facilitating the adoption of leading-edge technologies. Epsolon often helps clients hire internal, front-end support staff, such as desktop support technicians, once clients grow to the point that outsourcing these functions is no longer cost effective.
 
As a result of years of experience supporting small business IT, Epsolon has developed a variety of IT Packages designed to provide an affordable way for small businesses to maintain information systems that feature high availability, performance and based on the proactive problem solving capabilities.
