Standardize. Standardize. Standardize.Standardization is the key to scalable growth, simpler troubleshooting, and faster deployments.
Standardization in technology, whether it is across multiple locations or just from office to office is an often overlooked yet critical element of an overall IT success strategy. We have been promoting the benefits of standardization for over a decade to our clients.
Standardization is about planning and thinking ahead. Much like branding involves key colors and font styles; your network should involve the same discipline in how to program phone features, the software loaded to computers, the continuity assurance of an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) at each workstation, etc. Having this scope laid out ahead of time means that new locations have a plan already in place for technology installations. Including details such as universal colors to identify specific cables, future troubleshooting will take less time allowing your locations to get back to business much sooner.
Tie National can help your business develop and implement effective standardization plans. To talk to a professional, call us at (630) 518-9600 or e-mail email@example.com. Michael R.

Michael Durante spent his teenage years into his early 20s climbing the ladder in a branch of a successful banking firm, starting as a teller and ending as a Sr. Branch Manager within 6 years. In 2003, he left the banking world to join his father and create TIE National, a telecom company 60 years in the making. Together, they grew the company from a two-man operation solely working on telephones to a multi-million dollar international business with employees in over a dozen states, covering everything from phone systems to cloud products and computer systems.
