Consulting Programming Hardware
Even though your accounting software is working now, you may find yourself in a situation where your vendor refuses to work on it anymore. You then have to buy a new set of software or even a new computer. It is in just such a situation that we can help. In one case we completely reworked the payroll system. We simplified it and made the job simpler and more efficient. Whatever the system, our experience allows us to come in and make any necessary changes. This allows you to keep your familiar system, and it reduces training time for your people and the potential for costly bugs.
There's a wide gap between the number of computer jobs and the number of trained people. There's an even wider gap in most people's understanding of what these trained people do during their work week. While employed by large organizations, I found that I spent only about 20% of my time on tasks which needed my specialized training. But, the company paid for 100% of my time and usually tried to fill it with 'other tasks, as assigned'. I often wondered why they needed me full time and came up with only a few answers which seemed to make sense. One, I had specific knowledge about their systems and could quickly answer questions or fix problems. Two, I was one of them and could be relied on to think about the company's interests because they were also mine. Finally, I was right there if something came up. Since we at BSE establish long term relationships with our customers, we come to know their systems intimately, and we document those systems so others can quickly find what they need. The second reason is doubly important for consultants: if we don't put the customer's interests first we won't be asked back. Since our time is accounted for explicitly, it had better be making an impact. The last reason is that, with remote connections, we can be on line and working as quickly as if we were on site.
By hiring us you hire a team, and get four brains for the price of one. By hiring us, you only pay for work actually performed, without benefits, perks, or workman's compensation payments. We have developed warm relationships with all of our long term customers. We give honest estimates and have a great track record for staying within those estimates. If you like to work with honest people on a long term basis, contact us.
