Sure, your IT assets — computers, drives, servers, switches — are important, but some of your most vital assets are the IT personnel who keep everything running smoothly.
When a small manufacturing company parted ways with its one-man IT department, the business was at a loss. After working for the company for 10 years, he knew the ins and outs of the IT infrastructure.
The company’s owner reached out to MicroAge’s JP Patchett for help. JP had helped the company with hardware purchases over the years, and they trusted him to help with IT staffing as well.
Partnering with Signature Technology Group (STG), JP helped his client find an IT contractor for 40 hours per month.
“Basically, they were able to outsource those IT hours, get the work done and save some money,” JP says. “Since January, the contractor has been able to help with everything, including server maintenance and upgrades, Windows Exchange, voice and data, BlackBerry support … anything!
With more than 23 years of experience in the IT services industry, STG has a stellar reputation for finding great IT talent, and is happy to be a MicroAge preferred partner.
When MicroAge clients need IT service professionals, STG is able to tap its employees, which are located across the country, as well as its national network of vetted contract technicians.
For JP’s client, STG screened qualified technicians and recommended a candidate to the client who they felt was a great fit – he had the right skill set and they thought he would fit well within the organization.
The client, meantime, had conducted its own search and interviewed several candidates, with rather disappointing results. But after interviewing the STG technician, they were so impressed that they immediately offered him the job.
“They were looking for a well-rounded IT professional,” adds Ben Nava, senior account executive for STG. “This person is really an extension of the client’s technology team, helping them with a variety of projects and tasks.”
And it’s a relationship that should endure. “The client’s been thrilled,” JP notes.
