Astir IT - Mobile Applications for Todays' Business World

November 11, 2013

Hello,

Mobile applications have become an integral part of every day business.  Smart phones and tablets allow us to interact from anywhere, at any time.  These devices have revolutionized the way we conduct business, and have connected everyone on a 24 hour, 7 day a week basis.

This has also added yet another layer of complexity to our business lives.  We are now connected to our business, our customers, our partners, and our employees like never before.  And even though this can yield tremendous benefit, it comes with several caveats.  We must have the right tools: the right devices and the right applications.

There are some great mobile applications available to businesses.  More and more vendors are creating mobile friendly versions of their business applications.  These mobile applications usually offer a truncated version of the functionality contained in their business application; and provide a method for executing certain functions remotely.

Yet, with all of the available mobile applications on the market, there is still an overwhelming need for custom application development for mobile devices.  Astir IT Solutions, Inc. has extensive experience in creating mobile applications for a wide range of industries.  We have developed mobile applications that address finance, HR, time tracking, data measurement, marketing analysis, etc.  Our applications can be built across different platforms and devices.

I'd love to discuss how Astir can build you a custom mobile application; or even create a mobile version of an existing business application.  Give me a call at (908) 279-8670 ext. 716.

Astir IT - Customer Relationship Management CRM

October 16, 2013

Hello,

Customer relationship management has become a major facet of any organization.  It has become increasingly important for companies to keep their current customers happy.  In fact, retaining current customers has become as important as winning new business.

Monitoring current client, developing and managing touch points, and maintaining relationships can be difficult and complex.  Luckily, there are tools on the market that can assist with customer relationship management (CRM.)  These CRM tools help automate procedures, streamline processes, and simplify the overall relationship management exercise.  Yet, with all the CRM tools currently on the market, there isn’t much flexibility or customization available.  “Off the shelf” tools are designed with everyone in mind, and often leave customers with many gaps.

Many times it becomes necessary to seek out custom development of a CRM tool.  Having a CRM application custom built enables customer specific business rules to be implemented; ensuring complete coverage and easy assimilation with existing technology landscapes.  The trick with having CRM tools custom designed and built is finding the right resource to work with.

Astir IT Solutions, Inc. has a number of CRM services to choose from.  As a full service IT company, Astir can provide your company with different options to custom design and build CRM tools.  Astir can take complete control of the development of a CRM tool, and build it off a client site.  Astir can also provide on-site resources to client locations, who can partially or fully manage a CRM project.  Our flexible business model will ensure that all specifications are met, including budget.

 

Feel free to give me a call at 908-279-8670 ext. 716 to discuss your CRM needs.

Application Development - Finding the right app for you needs.

March 21, 2013

Hello,

Business applications lay the foundation of many departments.  Your HR department may use an application that tracks time off and benefits, your accounting department may use and application that monitors accounts receivable/payable, and your employees may utilize an application that enables remote time sheet submission... The point is, your organization needs to make use of applications in a wide range of areas.

There are many applications available on the market, but they are designed with EVERYONE in mind; not designed for you and your business.  Therefore, finding an application that matches your exact needs and fits perfectly into your organization is near impossible.  Astir IT Solutions, Inc. specializes in application development, and can custom build an application using your exact specifications.

Our custom built applications provide you with a tool that functions based upon your requirements; so your business can operate more efficiently and you receive a high return on your investment.

Astir IT utilizes proven discovery techniques that enable us to fully understand your business, including your departments, your employees, and most importantly, your needs.  From there, our expert IT professionals will custom build a application that matches your unique business requirements perfectly.  We employ unique processes that keep you close to the design process; and with our agile development processes, we accommodate changes with minimal impact to delivery.

If you would like to learn more about our application development services, please contact me at (908) 279-8670 ext. 716.  I would love to discuss your application needs.

Supporting your IT infrastructure

February 26, 2013

Technology is the backbone for most businesses today.  Chances are your organization could not function without the technological infrastructure that enables all of your day to day business activities.  You may rely on a network, a server, a database, an application, or any combination therein; but the bottom line is you and your business are completely reliant on a fully functioning, bug free IT infrastructure.

 

Unfortunately, it is not easy to maintain your technological infrastructure.  There are always a laundry list of problems... bugs, updates, outages, and a wide host of other hiccups that hinder your ability to work at peak efficiency.  Depending on the complexity of your technology needs, you may need an individual or an entire department to manage your IT infrastructure.

 

Astir IT Solutions, Inc. has the expert IT resources you need to properly manage your IT infrastructure.  We can provide you with a single IT consultant, staff an entire team, or take the helm on your infrastructure projects from conception to completion.  Astir has over 10 years of experience providing our Fortune 500 clients with the perfect IT resources, and we would love to support your organization.

 

Feel free to give me a call at (908) 279-8670 ext. 704 so we can discuss your IT infrastructure needs.

Are Technical Skills Enough?

July 30, 2012

There is a great posting by Mary Shacklett that was published on TechRepublic called "10 highly valued soft skills for IT pros" (http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-highly-valued-soft-skills-for-it-pros/3353?tag=nl.e101).

In her posting she walks through the skills that will take the average technical person and make this person much more valuable to the business.  These skills include:

1. Deal making and meeting skills

2. Communications skills

3. Project skills / intuitiveness

4. Ergonomic Perspective (think from a user perspective)

5. Great team player

6. Political smarts

7. Teaching, mentoring, knowledge sharing

8. Gray issue resolution

9. Vendor management

10. Contract negotiation

What it in essence comes down to, is just knowing the technical's is not good enough - the needed skill sets listed above, in addition to excellent communications skills, separate the technical talent.

Astir IT is proud of our resources who go beyond just knowing the technical's.   Give me a call on (908) 279-8670 ext. 704, I'd love to discuss the Astir difference.
