We still have just under two months left this year, but as you know in business, you always have to think one step ahead. Most organizations have already planned their budgets for 2015, or are at least in the process of finalizing their plans. Technology is always an important discussion in budget meetings, and companies spend a significant amount of time evaluating their internal IT processes and relationships with technology vendors from an ROI perspective. As an MSP or VAR, it's your duty to show the value you provide your clients to ensure you maintain your relationships with them in the new year.
Being mindful of technology trends helps. If you know what your clients will need to do next year to stay competitive in their industries, you can leverage your services and resources to make sure you can help them capitalize on new trends. We know that computing everywhere is Gartner's top projected tech trend of 2015, and that the Internet of Things is right behind it. How will your organization ensure your clients make the most of those and how will you relay to ensure they keep you as part of their IT plans in the new year?
It starts with bringing in the right people. Not only do you need smart, talented individuals who can meet the needs of their clients, you must also find those who have a solid understanding of the business technology market, where it is and where it's going. This will help alleviate any anxiety your customers may have regarding technology in the new year and can help make sure they keep you around in 2015 and beyond. VAR Staffing can assist with this effort by identifying and recruiting the top talent to fit your organization's open positions.
