Running a successful business requires a lot of work and strategic decisions. A business should have both profits and expenses, but a successful one will have more profits. If you have more expenses, then your company is in trouble.
Companies rely on telecom and IT every day to communicate internally with each other, externally with customers, and to function as a business. Since they're used daily, that can quickly result in a large monthly expense that can eat away at profits.
As more companies decide to enter the realm of IT, the market becomes flooded. The product you are selling is now being sold by a large number of IT shops just like yours. This reality can be bad news for you, or it could be a blessing in disguise. If you're the same as everyone else, your struggle won't improve, and you'll have a harder time closing business deals. On the other hand, it forces you to change, to differentiate your IT shop, and be better.
Today has been another hard day at the office. As a business owner of your own IT shop, you've spent the morning and afternoon trying to drum up business, but have mostly been met with a resounding no. You know why that is, too.

Like any other piece of complicated equipment, it needs to be well cared for, and the reality is that they’ve become so commonplace that most of us take necessary care for granted.
It’s early fall in the city that was built on Oil & Gas, and for most of the movers & shakers, that means tabling the budget for the coming year. Like deer in headlights, many are frozen in anticipation; wondering if fiscal year 2014 will represent a flush year of new specialized projects; expansion and bonus cheques, or a tough year of cuts; hiring freezes and maybe just free turkeys in place of that elaborate Christmas party that our spouses have come to depend on.
HPCI has learned that some users of the iPhone 4 who have recently upgraded to iOS7 are experiencing some serious issues with their phones.
Guess what? That´s what we want for you too.
It comes up from time to time. Potential Clients are clear and direct about their concern about hiring our firm: they don’t want to negatively affect their relationship with their Dealer, who offers them great service (and perhaps some great seats at the occasional hockey game).
