Who we are:

We are former business owners who have brought our expertise in software, cloud, and IT infrastructure to SWK to form a nationally-recognized, customer-centric team – STAT! We are all experienced leaders and managers who understand the complexities of operating a business as well as the key role technology plays in automating and streamlining front and back office operations.

What we do:

By engaging customers in conversations about how their solutions support their businesses, we identify strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for better value. We don’t sell, nor are we consultants. We are advisors who guide you with a technology strategy. STAT meetings are our investment in you.

Let’s discuss:

  • Automating Your Processes – Manual processes are the bane of many companies. They expend employee resources and work hours that could best be used promoting or delivering your products and services. Manual processes come at a high cost and make your organization less competitive. Let us show you how the newest software tools and technology infrastructure best practices combine with your processes to streamline your front and back office operations, so you can cut costs and be more productive and profitable.
  • Gaining Better Visibility into Your Data and Your Business – Every process and every transaction generate data points that can help you improve your operations, develop more business, and cut costs from redundant and unproductive activities. We can show you how to gain deeper insights into your business.
  • Ensuring a Sound Technology Foundation – All the tools in the world become irrelevant if your employees can’t access them. Whether your company is struggling through a natural disaster, health crisis, or facing a changing environment such as employees working from home, you need both a sound infrastructure to support your operations and a business continuity plan (BCP) in case of the unexpected. Cloud, on-premise, or hybrid, we’ll guide you toward the most sensible infrastructure for your business.

After our STAT meeting…

You will learn which technologies to prioritize, and when. You will receive a summary of potential future technology outcomes for your business that can be used to prioritize and implement over time. Further, you’ll have a business that will operate more efficiently so you can remain competitive and achieve your goals.

  • A Fresh Perspective on Your Business — We will have shared what we’re seeing across thousands of other companies so you have some benchmarks and best practices so you’ll have a fresh perspective on your business and the viability of your technologies to support and drive your objectives.
  • Technology Prioritization and Roadmap — We’ll help you prioritize your technology next steps in a way that makes sense for today and tomorrow, and we’ll create a summary of findings and potential recommendations.
  • Renewed Leadership Capabilities – By prioritizing and mapping your technology path, you can lead your workforce accordingly and set expectations for today and tomorrow in terms of tools and results, and be the business leader you want to be.

A few hours spent ahead of time will help you decide what to invest in and when, save you considerable costs, and help drive you toward your goals in good times and bad. Contact us today.

This [business process review] provided the roadmap we always lacked."
