At Onestop we know that IT is seldom a solution in itself but rather part of a well-designed IT strategy to maximise the efficiency of your business.  It should facilitate and support your current activities while laying the groundwork for future expansion.

It’s not what you do but the way that you do it

Even if the ideal solution to a company’s IT requirements can be obtained off-the-shelf there is no reason that it shouldn’t be part of an overall bespoke solution.  Indeed, the prospects of success are greatly improved when all circumstances are included in strategic planning.

Onestop IT designs bespoke support and infrastructure packages for your existing systems by considering both your current organisational structure and your plans for the future.

The tendency of IT systems to evolve in response to business needs can cause unforeseen issues with support and forward planning.  We will work with you to determine the best way to bring your current systems up-to-date and to position them so that they can scale up to cope with the new challenges your company faces.

It’s important while doing this to ensure that any new procedures dovetail with your current guidelines and policies, failing to do this risks jeopardising the intended gains.  Equally important is involving your staff and incorporating their feedback to fine tune the solutions.

IT strategic planning will focus on both the actual technologies used, but also the human capital, IT risk management and cost management.

Designing for the present and for the future

When designing your IT strategy, we will:

  • Consider your organisational requirements for IT infrastructure
  • Build scalable IT solutions that can grow with your business
  • Design procedures that comply with existing company guidelines and policies
  • Seek to understand and incorporate your staff’s feedback into the solutions we deliver

Measuring success

If you can’t measure the results of your IT Strategy, you can never know that it is truly working for you.  At Onestop IT being able to demonstrate tangible improvement is key to our service.

Intelligent Glue

Intelligent Glue is our unique Operational Maturity Model (OMM). It tracks the performance of an organisation as its relationship with technology changes over time. We can see how IT decisions are made and the impact they will have on the wellbeing of the organisation.

Our model monitors five metrics that show how systems are performing:

  1. system uptime
  2. day to day characteristics
  3. commercial impact
  4. cultural impact
  5. Senior Management feelings and the impact on the owners
