Recently, one of our owners and senior sales consultants, Michael Gabhart, sat down with Business First to talk technology in today’s workplace. With a panel of local technology experts that all run thriving businesses in the area, the discussion was very informative and useful for anyone trying to make it in today’s business world. Gary Tyler, Marketing President & Publisher at Business First, said, “I believe you will find this discussion informative and useful no matter your technical sophistication, knowledge base or the technology needs of your company.” If you missed it, you can read the article here.
Gabhart summarized what we do at Unified Technologies by saying, “I don’t know if we’re selling technology as much as we’re looking at business processes and helping refine and improve business processes using technology…” He then went on to talk about the challenge of delivering technology to clients in a way that is simple and easy to use in a world where technology is constantly changing.
Next, he discussed how companies are looking at technology differently than they did a few years ago. For example, at Unified, we found that companies were spending a bunch of money on technology systems that would be outdated in a few short years. For this reason, Gabhart directed the development of our Managed Services program, designed to meet customers’ changing business objectives. Our Managed Services offering has been widely accepted by companies ranging in size from 10 to 600 employees.
Some of the Benefits of the Managed Services program:
- Upgrade dated technology with little to no upfront capital expense to gain advantages of the latest feature benefits
- Eliminate any exposure to risk, related to equipment and changing technology
- Partner with a service provider that will maximize adoption of the new tools and minimize downtime
- Realize lowest monthly operating expense
- Gain flexible financial options moving forward
- Forgo ownership or responsibility of the equipment/technology
He summarized his point by saying, “Technology used to be an expense. Now, it’s more of an investment…Not many companies want to own it and be responsible for it.”
