Founded in 2000, Tier One Technology Partners has been around to see smartphones and the cloud change the way businesses view IT. Now it’s less of a necessary evil and more of an opportunity to improve worker efficiency, increase revenue, and gain an advantage over competitors.
Our roots go even further than the turn of the millennium as a division of McLean, Koehler, Sparks & Hammond (MKS&H), a professional services provider comprised of accountants and business consultants, which was founded way back in 1943. Before first dipping their toe in IT over 15 years ago, MKS&H had been helping businesses with their banking, accounting, and legal needs for over half a century.
Other IT companies know how to monitor a network and the like, but they don’t know how to see from the perspective of a C-level exec who doesn’t know much about IT. They’ll use acronyms and industry-specific terms you don’t understand. They’ll skim over what their solutions actually do for your business and focus on explanations that you don’t really need to hear, even if you could understand them.
Our background in business enables us to translate tech talk into plain English and help you understand what technology can do for you both now and 5 or 10 years down the road.
The Cost of Outsourcing vs. In-house Solutions
When you’re looking for IT support in a market as big as Baltimore, Washington, DC and across Maryland, you’ll have a lot of options, but it all boils down to a decision between two choices: are you going to add IT workers to your in-house staff, or are you going to outsource your technology needs?
Looking at the cost of each option makes the decision a little easier. Choose the in-house route and every low-level employee receives an average of salary of $50,000, and for consulting and long-term strategy you’ll need a CIO-level expert that will expect at least a $100,000+ salary.
Tier One Technology Partners provides the same level of service you’d get with your own IT department at a much more affordable flat rate.
Improved Security and More Revenue
But lower cost isn’t the only thing Tier One Technology Partners has going for it. In addition to those significant savings, we’ll secure your network and jumpstart workforce production.
You only hear about cybercrime in the news when it happens to businesses as big as Target and Home Depot. It might be surprising then to learn that a majority, 60% to be exact, of attacks target small to medium-sized business (SMBs).
Home Depot and Target have the resources to deal with data loss incidents. Smaller organizations often don’t.
It takes an average of $150 per compromised file to recover from an online security breach, and there are usually thousands of files lost in a single attack, so you’re looking at cleanup costs that could easily total over $1 million. That’s enough of a hit to put a lot of people out of business, as 55% of SMBs close within just 6 months of a major cyberattack.
Tier One Technology Partners keep all your software updated and patched to protect you from the latest threats, and we’ll regularly assess your network to make sure vulnerabilities are found and fixed before they’re exploited by cybercriminals that have the potential to close you down.
Also, we’ll slash your maintenance and electricity costs through cloud migration, make your employees more available and productive through mobilization, and allow you to keep your clients happy and workers motivated by reducing downtime.
Our services will help you meet and even exceed your revenue goals.
