We’ve Kept IT Projects On Time & Under Budget For More Than 100 Small Businesses…
Need help with an upcoming project? Let’s work together to get it done on time and on budget—no exceptions.
At Impact Group, we understand that regardless of the type of project you're working on, "Murphy's Law" very much applies. When troubles crop up or things get more difficult than you were prepared for, you need dependable support that you know you can turn to—not someone who you have difficulty even getting on the phone with.
This is a large part of the reason why we offer a wide range of one-time project and consulting services for you to choose from depending on your needs. Whether you're talking about a major infrastructure upgrade, strategic IT planning or something far smaller in scale, we've got extensive experience helping with all of these things and more.
Just a few of the processes we've developed to help businesses include:
Holistic Technology Assessments
Are your current technology solutions optimized for your business? Let’s find out.
Whether you’re still running your own in-house IT staff or you’ve outsourced everything to a managed IT services provider doesn’t actually matter—a technology assessment can always add a significant amount of value by giving you access to a trusted, experienced and insightful second opinion on both your current setup and your future goals.
Our Impact Group technology assessments therefore begin with us getting to know your current paint points, problems and future goals on an intimate level. After an on-site survey to fully understand your existing infrastructure, we’ll have everything we need to connect those two dots.
Email and Cloud Migration Services
Embrace the cloud with Microsoft Office 365/Azure or G Suite/Google Cloud.
The fact of the matter is that for many small businesses, it simply no longer makes sense to maintain your own on-premise environment any longer. Not only is it often prohibitively expensive, but it’s also difficult to “get it right” on an ongoing basis—and rest assured that the consequences of “getting it wrong” are ones that you absolutely do not want to find yourself dealing with.
The team at Impact Group can help with any type of cloud migration you’d like, whether you’re interested in moving to Office365/Azure to G Suite or even your own virtual server in the cloud. If you’d like us to conduct the entire migration, terrific—we can do exactly that in the most efficient way possible.
Workstation and Server Upgrades
Don't let "End of Life" for your systems catch you off guard.
Generally speaking, it’s recommended that most businesses upgrade their workstations and servers every three to five years. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize just how many challenges they’re creating for themselves by failing to stick to this timeline. Old equipment isn’t just slower in a day-to-day sense. It’s likely leading to the types of usage problems and unexpected periods of downtime that are negatively impacting your ability to work.
At Impact Group, we’ll come in and evaluate every aspect of your current setup—including desktops, laptops, clients, servers and more. Once we know what you’re dealing with, we’ll be able to put together the unique and comprehensive replacement plan you need to cycle out all of that “end of life equipment” so that you can easily and cost effectively replace it with equipment that works for your goals instead of against them.
Desktop and Server Virtualization
Set up a complete cloud-based environment that can be accessed anywhere at any time.
Desktop and server virtualization is a decision that brings with it a wide range of advantages that cannot be ignored. Not only does it improve the overall flexibility and scalability of your business, but it also makes your environment far easier to manage—all while adding a new layer of redundancy as well.
Impact Group is available to help you seamlessly virtualize your IT assets. Whether you’re thinking about VDI or virtualization using VMware or Hyper V, we’ll be by your side every step of the way to make sure you have everything you need to generate the outcomes you want.
Disaster Recovery and Data Recovery
Did you lose critical data? Don't worry—we'll do everything in our power to recover it.
Disasters come in all shapes and sizes...but that doesn’t mean you can afford to be any less prepared. We’re not just talking about cyber attacks and other IT-related disasters, either. A fire in your office can be just as devastating as a computer virus.
At Impact Group, we want to make sure that this is something you don’t have to worry about any longer. In the worst case scenario, you've lost your critical data AND any backups that you had. That still doesn't mean that your data is gone for good—there are a number of steps we can take to help restore it. There are no guarantees, but we'll do everything in our power to get it all back.
We’ll protect your from:
Network Design and Upgrade Services
Improving Your Speed and Reliability Means Improving Your Business.
As is true with workstation and server upgrades, your network design isn't something that you "do once and forget about." Upgrading networking equipment, cabling and other assets is always important because it not only makes sure that you're using the latest and most reliable resources, but that your network can continue to grow as your business does, too.
The team at Impact Group will evaluate every aspect of your networking setup to make sure that your infrastructure is optimized for your people, their processes and their workflow.
IT Project Planning and Management
A successful project requires a successful plan to work from.
Major projects can be difficult for an IT team to handle in addition to daily IT maintenance tasks. Do you need extra help to get that latest IT project done on time and under budget? The constant stream of requests, troubleshooting, and maintenance tasks can keep your IT personnel from tackling the larger goals that you have for your business technology, such as new IT projects.
The team at Impact Group has over 15 years of experience helping clients with just about every type of project you can think of—from far-reaching strategic IT planning to short-term infrastructure upgrades and everything in between. Together, we’ll help you oversee existing projects (and come up with new ones) to give you the leadership you need from dealing with vendors, budgeting and more to make sure your IT project is a success.
IT Relocation Services
Your new infrastructure, just as effective as your old infrastructure.
Moving to a new office is already stressful—worrying about getting your infrastructure from “point A” to “point B” in one piece isn’t something you should have to add on top of it. We’ll oversee everything—including working with vendors—to make sure you can focus on the things that are most important of all.
Impact Group experts will help with all the planning and dealing with the technology related complexity so you can immediately get to work once you've moved in.
Because all businesses should know the joy of a network that works exactly the way it's supposed to.
A network is ultimately only as strong as its configuration. An optimized network supports your people and their workflows, while a sluggish network makes it harder to do their jobs.
At Impact Group, we begin by understanding the problems you’ve been going through. Once we have a “big picture” look at your environment, we’ll be able to provide you with recommendations and cost estimates to address every issue we find.
IT Security Assessments and Employee Training
When it comes to cyber security, the best defense is a good offense.
From emerging threats to compliance-related issues, our custom IT security assessment will uncover everything you need to navigate the dangerous 21st century digital world that we’re now living in.
Impact Group will help you uncover the hidden vulnerabilities in your defenses and apply proven solutions to eliminate them. We can turn your team into cybersecurity experts that can easily spot email scams and software threats.
Let's Take Your Business to the Next Level
Above all, we promise never to hit you with hidden fees. We're not going to try to sell you on the "newest, fanciest, coolest" IT trend just for the sake of it. We're just here to provide good, old-fashioned IT support that puts your technology to work in a better way than your internal IT department would be able to handle on its own.
