There is an extreme competitive advantage to businesses who see, understand and believe the value of IT and the outcomes it can bring their business.

As a small business, it is time to do the same. But unfortunately we hear small business leaders say statements such as, “IT is just a necessary evil.”
While they’re right- IT is necessary in today’s world, it doesn’t have to be a negative. It’s when you choose to see IT as evil and just a necessity, you fail to get the full value out of your technology.
Your Relationship with Technology Isn't Working... Here's Why
Do you find yourself constantly frustrated with technology? Is technology just a necessity in operating your business?
