How important are our IT professionals?
Regardless of what kind of business you’re running, your technology gurus should be the first call you make when considering new software. They can help determine whether your infrastructure is setup properly, what steps need to be taken to transition to a new solution, and if your equipment is compatible. They are especially valuable to sleep lab management companies and hospitals where they often face challenges such as:
- Third-party software
- Mixed PSG equipment
- Accessibility issues
A great deal of the implementation process is working with IT staff or consultants to ensure all technical components are handled quickly and with a strong level of skill. Our company considers those professionals to be essential in the smooth transition for our new customers, as well as, key players when a current customer experiences expansion.
Every solution has requirements that need to be met in order to ensure efficiency. There are several factors that contribute to how well software performs on a PC:
- RAM (memory)
- CPU (processor)
- HD space (storage space)
- Internet bandwidth
- Network traffic / File operation blocked by security software / hardware
- The ability to read / write / install software on a PC
- Versions of software / operating system installed on the PC
Your IT professional will evaluate all of these things and report back if upgrades or hardware changes need to be made to accommodate a solution. In those instances, they will also be your best resource for choosing the most cost-effective way to make those changes.
Even though they aren’t the end user of a product, your IT team’s input and expertise will be invaluable when you’re ready to make a transition to a new system. They really do play a big part in helping companies like LabRetriever get the software up-and-running as quickly and efficiently as possible.
