Technology Alignment Plan

Technology Alignment Plan

The first step in getting strategic

Small and medium sized businesses are easily overpowered by big competitors when it comes to technological capabilities. But that doesn’t mean they’re using their tech strategically. This is where you can take advantage by aligning your tech to your business goals, and we can help.

So, we get to know your business — where it’s been, where it is, and where you’d like it to go. And we get to know your tech — the problems, the benefits, the goals, and the desired outcomes. Then we take all of that and outline the next steps to XLerating your business. If you want to read more about the importance of aligning your tech strategy with your business goals, you can download this guide.

Let your tech drive better performance

We interview key stakeholders and leadership about your technology. And we examine all the technology you have — from servers to meeting room monitors to printers. We make sure your tech suits your needs and your potential.

In less than a month, we give you a plan that can improve your performance and reduce IT issues by up to 80%.

Action plans for alignment make it easy

You’ll walk out with a road map for the future — we see where your business is, and where it could go. We provide a document that outlines a few key items to get you there:

A Current Issues List

A ranked list of IT issues that are holding your business back

icon-calendar

Quarterly Plan

Projects that can be achieved within the next 90 days and success metrics

1-Year Plan

A list of larger projects that require more time and resources and success metrics

We walk you through the plan and show you what you can do to reduce IT issues, increase employee efficiency, and align your IT with your business goals.

The service and response time is what separates XL.net from the rest – The best word to describe them is…Reliable!

Skyline Tradetec

You seem to drop everything else for us when we need you.

Chang & Charlin, LLP

XL.net provides me and my business every tool we need to succeed and a peace of mind that can’t be bought. What we pay now is less than what we were paying before – with a side of extra competency. We are getting better services for less.

Illinois Ventures

The biggest benefit of XL.net is the sense of confidence they provide. We are now able to have the resources of a big company, but don’t have to pay full price for them. XL.net is an all-encompassing solution. If there is an issue, we don’t have to do anything but call them. They are easy to deal with and their staff does whatever they have to do to get issues resolved.

Phusion Projects

Compared to our previous provider, the transition to XL.net saves us $7,000 – $8,000 a month in IT expenses and the fact that we no longer have an in-house IT tech. This is the best IT vendor I have had experience with – and I’ve had a lot of experience with IT vendors in the past.

TradingBlock

XL.net offers a unique solution that makes sense for small businesses. We, like many other businesses of our size, had concerns about the reliability of our systems and processes – especially our backups; since XL.net took over I feel confident that our data is safe, and that our backups are secure and well-managed.

Tri-Star Engineering

The XL team are very thorough, communicative and helpful. We just email them and within a couple of hours the issue is fixed. They notify us as soon as the ticket is received, and let us know that they are working on our problem – plus its status. Their response is very timely. I was a little hesitant about outsourcing our IT, but It feels like they are sitting right here in the office!

American INVSO

Pain has decreased significantly. Our staff has been very pleased with the change –with XL.net, our IT issues have been reduced by 50% – this is incredibly valuable to us. It’s nice to have the peace of mind that IT problems are being taken care of fast. The XL.net staff’s expertise, professionalism, reliability, and capability are unrivaled.
