Make IT budget that works in today's  recessionary economy in Orange and los Angeles county 

Discover why many  businesses put off technology improvements due to budget concerns, and then they pay the consequences 


That pretty much summarizes the results of a recent study sponsored by HP. They found that:
  • 89% of those companies then experienced IT-related problems (like slow connections, lost data, overloaded networks) mostly from outdated and unreliable equipment.
  • 93% of the small businesses they surveyed put off getting the best IT solutions due to cost concerns.
Heart of business runs on IT, If your Infrastructure cabling ,  phone system and server is older than three years and are not upgraded, then you can be assured that you are paying more and getting less. 

The new , inexpensive cloud computing  business office applications by Google ( google apps ) ,  Cost effective  infrastructure  fiber technology ( eliminating the need for cat5e, Cat 6 cabling ) which  reduces the  CapEx and OpEx,  By  Motorola Passive Optical Lan technology  , New Collaborative project management  , material  procurement and financing  are among the technology and innovation that you need to consider .

To get more with higher quality for  less is the name of the game in this " cost reduction " Economy .

Technology planning makes IT budget-friendly and manageable

One thing we all have learned is that we do not need to wait to hit the " budgetary ceiling"  in order to wake up and start managing the budget . 

In 2011, Innova managed many well planned IT relocation , Move and expansion projects locally in California and nationwide , from regenal offices, headquarters, warehouses and retail stores . We have received many comments and testimonial that clearly demonstrates  business benefited from having well-planned technology systems in place -- and how business can  enjoy not having to worry about managing all the details and just managing project budget and cost .

Technology becomes budget-friendly when you:
  • Use Collaborative project management portals and reporting ( I.e Using Google Apps  sites, project management and cost management tools )  
  • Plan IT at the design phase. It costs less to plan technology (especially cabling and outlets) at the design phase of any construction or remodeling project. If you get it right the first time, you don't pay a higher cost to reopen walls, ceilings, change furniture plan  / space plan  and floors to rework an inadequate technology infrastructure.
  • Use a single source installation partner.  You reduce cost , gain more control and eliminate fingure pointing when using Innova to install all your  infrastructure cabling ( Cat5e , cat6, Fiber optic , Video , Audio and security cables ) and  Technology systems ( Cloud computing , Private cloud, server system , switch, router, fire wall,  phone system, DVR , PA and AP systems ) .
  • Plan for the future. Again, it's less expensive to wire an office during construction for every desired technology application (like digital signage, additional computers), even if you don't buy and install all the hardware right away.
