IT Consulting

714 provides a full-range of technical consulting services so small business owners can focus on their business instead of technical issues and their limited resources. Bundling our services together enables small businesses to receive the benefits of having access to their own IT and software development teams without the costly expense of hiring staff or contractors. Having worked in small businesses ourselves, we provide services that begin with formulating an IT strategy, implementing the technology, managing your IT infrastructure, supporting your end-users as well as developing, maintaining and supporting software applications unique to your business. We will help you develop the right IT strategic plan and then follow through with executing it without losing sight of your business objectives. We know how to lower IT costs, leverage new technologies to increase revenues, offer new web-based applications to increase customer satisfaction and produce an integrated plan that gives you a combination of these IT benefits.
