Needless to say, a lot of the companies that we serve want to spend the majority of their time and ability concentrating on customers. But like many companies, particularly in the IT sector, they are all too often stuck focusing on product and infrastructure issues. It’s a situation that is only too familiar.
Thankfully, GoCloud’s partnership model lets partner companies concentrate more on their own clients, thereby giving them the best possible service and fulfilling all needs. Meanwhile, we look after the hardware and the product side of the infrastructure. This not only helps our partners to fully realise their customer-service potential, it also opens up whole new opportunities for service development and progression.
In the age of digitisation, synchronisation and high availability online services, IT options for all kinds of businesses are multiplying exponentially. This changes the situation for IT service providers everywhere.
Quoting from the Price Waterhouse Coopers report The Death of Traditional IT: “More and more often, the individual business unit devises its own go-to-market strategy, decides on the specific capabilities needed to support that strategy, and makes its own decisions about the technologies it needs to take its products and services to market.”
In other words, off-the-shelf products from distant, uncommunicative IT companies are no longer the preferred choice. What companies want is a long-lasting relationship with a competitive and professional IT business that can provide the capabilities and technologies needed to get their product or service to market. What companies desire is a versatile or even full-service IT partner that can focus on them and their requirements, rather than producing and selling the same old products over and over again.
There are plenty of companies perched ready to do that. Perhaps they have already taken the dive into the strategic IT partnership market, or are just starting to change their business model to focus on this increasingly profitable area of the market. Wherever your business is on this spectrum, GoCloud can help you to move closer to your objective, either as a flexible main service to offer to all types of clients, or as another product to add to your range of offerings.
GoCloud can be used as the basis for all sorts of bespoke remote desktop solutions, from highly integrated networks for joint working, to sets of individual desktops with little linking them at all except for quality and dependability.
As obstructions to this new market model fall and the advantages build up for all involved, it is looking increasingly profitable for IT service and solution providers.
A partnership with GoCloud can help you to enter this market while it's still young and rapidly expanding. For any business considering a move to this type of business model, it's time to get in touch with us. For any business not already considering this move, we highly recommend you have a think about it.
