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.

 

Best Regards,

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.

 

Best Regards,

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.

Welcome to the Astir IT Blog!

December 04, 2011

Being that this is the first Astir IT Solutions blog let me welcome you.

Astir IT Solutions, Inc. was founded in 2001 by 2 people and a vision. It began as a small home operation, but as time progressed and the reputation for excellence flourished, the business expanded quickly. Astir IT grew exponentially with every passing year, and today we have locations on both coasts and India. We have consultants placed all over the United States, and can place personnel in any state.

In 2009, Astir IT launched a Business Intelligence / Analytics division, Astir Analytics, and in 2010 Inothink Solutions and Sysnet Technology Solutions, IT consulting and outsourcing firms, joined the Astir family.

You can visit us at www.astirit.com,  www.astiranalytics.com and www.sysnetts.com.

Astir IT Solutions was established at the height of a recession in technology services. We recognized there was an opportunity to provide consulting services to firms who were unable to hire trained and qualified technology professionals. From there, the scope of our services grew to include Customer Relationship Management (CRM,) Information and Database Management, Application Development and Maintenance, Infrastructure Support and more. We provide the expertise and solutions businesses desperately need to reach and surpass their goals.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to hear more about the Astir difference.
