Information Technology Practice

Since Information technology (IT) touches every functional area of your business, IT decisions must be an integral part of your strategic plan.  To remain competitive in today’s global environment, businesses and not-for-profit organizations need to determine the right technology for their industry and size. When legacy systems are no longer supported, system crashes or slow processing cost time and money. Older systems may not have the capabilities of newer more powerful software. Replacement, upgrade or custom software decisions are difficult to evaluate.

J. F. Smith & Associates will work with you, to help you make your business case, identify your funding, and identify areas for potential savings.  We will frame your technology selection and help you manage your implementation.  We are not a reseller and therefore have no financial interest in the selection.  We will help you make an unbiased decision.

Using our analytical approach and facilitative methodology, we will work with your team to develop the appropriate IT strategy for your company.  If you do not have the in house capabilities, we will draft a functional specification, write an RFP, interview vendors and manage the project – start to finish.
