Mobile solutions Small and Medium Business

In a highly competitive business environment, small and medium businesses are relentlessly challenged by technology complexity and rapid technology obsolescence. The need is driven by the lack of IT edge among SMBs to build competitive advantage against large and global players; inability to maintain and sustain a robust IT function and lack of single view of enterprise information.

Client Challenges

Business Challenges
SMBs are increasingly realizing that ICT enablement is vital for survival in today’s globally competitive environment. This involves high upfront capital investment which SMBs are finding difficult to finance without vendor support. Globalization, heightened customer expectations, lack of a single view of the enterprise and inability to deliver in the absence of IT enablement is a clear challenge that SMBs are facing

IT Challenges
In the market we find no commitment from service providers to SMBs. This adversely impacts a SMB’s ability to provide any meaningful service level expectations for their customers. There has been Adhoc evolution of IT and this has made it difficult for SMBs to scale up the IT with business growth.
