We provide an alternative to the traditional technology consultant or managed service provider who operates on a reactive break-fix service model. We specialize in partnerships and see ourselves as an extension of our client’s team. Most of our clients take advantage of our full-service partnership, although we offer five service packages to meet your unique needs.
Technology Assessment and Strategic Plan
We believe technology must support your overall business and strategic goals, so understanding your organization is important to us.
We partner with each client’s leadership and key employees to assess existing technology capabilities and make recommendations to advance, improve and streamline your technology systems. We bring IT investments and initiatives into alignment to develop your Technology Strategic Plan; a three-year road map that can be used for budgetary and planning purposes.
All of our full-service partnerships begin with the technology assessment and the strategic plan; however this can also serve as a stand-alone service.
Managed IT Service Partnerships
Full-service partnerships begin with a customized technology assessment and strategic plan. This is a current analysis and three-year road map that can be used for budgetary and planning purposes.

Sometimes senior living communities only need our expertise on an intermittent basis, and we’re okay with that. Whether it’s optimization of a current business system, system installations or a need for a dedicated project manager for a specific technology project; senior living clients find our consulting services more valuable than taking a deep dive into a project without guidance and expertise.
Whether independent of, or in addition to other support, our technology consulting services are identified and executed within the strategic framework of the client’s business objectives. Consulting services include, but are not limited to:
- System analysis, recommendations and selection based on a vendor neutral approach
- Business process re-engineering and system optimization
- Staff training
- Hardware and software implementations
- Systems Installation
