As an IT service-based company, we know how important it is for businesses to have reliable and efficient IT services. With our years of experience and expertise in the industry, we have helped numerous businesses achieve their IT goals. In this article, we will share some insights from our team members on how to choose the right IT service provider for your business.
Determine your needs
Start by taking stock of your business's IT infrastructure and identifying any areas that need improvement. Are you looking for a provider to manage your network, handle software updates, or provide cybersecurity services? Knowing your needs will help you find a provider who can offer the right services.
“Understanding a client's needs before offering IT services has many benefits. It allows to tailor services to the specific requirements, increasing the chances of customer satisfaction and repeat business. By taking the time to understand needs, a provider can also offer relevant suggestions that address unique challenges, which can help build trust and establish a long-term business relationship. This approach can lead to more effective sales methodologies, such as insightful selling, rather than relying on cold calling tactics that may not be as effective," says Valdas Šimas, CEO of Reiz Tech. “Ultimately, by prioritizing customer needs, a provider can give more valuable and relevant IT services that are tailored to specific requirements, leading to higher customer satisfaction and a better overall business outcome.“
Look for experience and expertise
When it comes to IT, experience and expertise are key. Look for a provider that has a track record of success in your industry and specializes in the services you need. A provider that has worked with businesses like yours can offer valuable insights and solutions.
"Reiz Tech provides relevant and up-to-date certification and training to its team members, including certifications in Microsoft and Professional Scrum, as well as cross-expertise training, such as Scrum certification for developers who want to learn in-depth about how Scrum works," says Karolina Petraitienė, Key Account Manager.
Check for certifications and accreditations
Certifications and accreditations demonstrate a provider's commitment to maintaining high standards and staying up to date with the latest technologies. Look for providers that hold industry-specific certifications.
"The certifications and accreditations obtained by Reiz Tech's team members contribute to the company's overall credibility and reputation as a trusted partner for clients' business change and growth," says Karolina Petraitienė, Key Account Manager. “By continuously developing their skills and expertise, team members become better versions of themselves and are better equipped to handle any IT issue that arises.”
Consider their response time and availability
IT issues can arise at any time, so it's important to find a provider that offers fast response times and is available when you need them. Look for a provider that offers needed support and guarantees a response time within a certain number of hours.
“Little things matter more than we think. The response time is one of the driving forces behind a successful business experience," says Kristina Kikalienė, Key Account Manager. “A slow response time can create a negative business experience and can decrease customer satisfaction and trust. We are all human beings, and communication is key factor in all projects, no matter how good you are in a delivery. Think of how important time is to you. If you want to achieve your goals and live your dreams, managing time is the most important thing that one must learn and practice. Same in business, nobody wants to waste resources, but complete their tasks, missions in a timely manner.”
Get references and read reviews
Speaking to other businesses that have worked with a provider can give you valuable insights into their level of service and reliability. Ask for references and read online reviews on platforms like Google and Trustpilot to see what other businesses have to say about the provider.
"At Reiz Tech, we are proud of the work we have done for our clients. We want our potential clients to look for references and read reviews from other businesses that have worked with us," says Agnė Jaraminaitė, Business Branding Manager. “It can give them an idea of our reputation and the quality of our services that we provide.“
