It’s exciting when your business is growing fast, but constant change presents its own challenges. A period of expansion is a great place to be if you’re kitted out to make the most of that growth. It’s important to make sure that the capacity of your IT systems and hardware can keep up with increasing demand. Reactive, flexible IT management plays a vital role in the successful, sustainable growth of SMEs and Riverbank is proud to provide first-class support.
What you need, when you need it
There are a few factors worth taking into consideration before you decide when and how to make changes to your IT. No one can tell precisely what the future holds, but careful planning and a few well-made decisions can secure you a resilient IT setup that keeps pace with your business. With expert advice, your IT really can be just as flexible and affordable as you need it to be…
- IT you can grow into – Businesses are never really static. Small changes occur all the time, but without the right expertise it can be hard to achieve the same incremental changes in IT. It’s vital to avoid a situation in which ineffective IT is holding you back. With a carefully-chosen combination of services in place, you can rest assured your systems will grow when you do.
- Supply and demand – As your business expands and your IT needs become more numerous and complex, response and resolution time is inevitably a worry. We work to a defined technical standard to ensure consistent delivery, maintaining service-level agreements designed to ensure that you’re always in the loop.
- New and changing facilities – Growing quickly sometimes means taking on extra offices, or new premises, from factories and warehouses to recording studios and technology labs. Sometimes new facilities also have completely new IT requirements, rendering your old systems no longer fit for purpose. Riverbank can help to unify your systems perfectly.
- Parent companies and international partners – When growth involves integrating with national or international partners and parent organisations, it’s a question of logistics. Giving your in-house team access to enterprise-level IT experts – who deal with similar situations every day – helps to keep hassle to a minimum. Our teams are experienced in liaising with IT departments in other parts of the country and around the world, helping you to make a smooth transition.
We celebrate our clients’ successes. It’s always great to hear when a company we partner is growing, and it’s a privilege to accompany clients like you on exciting journeys of expansion.
