Q: How will I benefit from having a computer consultant?
A: A computer consultant will help reduce the time and research involved in making
a well-informed decision. This will allow you to make the best possible decision.
A well developed plan will consider its effect on the organization by reducing the
transitional impact of changing the work environment. Employees will then feel less
of an impact and should not be threatened by the changing their work process.
Q: Can I afford a computer consultant?
A: Yes! Usually for a small business the actual amount of time spent evaluating
and developing a computer system strategy is very small in relation to the actual
implementation of that strategy. Also, by making a well informed decision, based
on the information and experience of a computer consultant, you should save money
on the overall project.
Q: So, this means it is cost effective to have a consultant?
A: By having better information and a clear strategy to start out, you will most
likely save money over-all. Yes, it may cost you more at the beginning of the project,
but a consultant can save you a lot of money over the length of the project. This
savings will be the result of being more productive sooner and not having to stop
and change strategies in the middle of the project.
