Why Choose Us
- Gain Time to Focus on Core Business Functions
People are generally happiest doing what they do best. And they get frustrated by distracting tasks that have nothing to do with their essential job functions. Doctors, Lawyers, Accountants, Architects, Engineers, Marketers, Executives, Office Managers and most everyone else are at their best when they focus on their core competencies. The time and effort spent on figuring out Information Technology has a very real opportunity cost. Researching solutions, implementing new technology and fixing IT-related problems are extremely inefficient for non IT professionals. By using Charter Africa, internal staff are free to spend time focusing on revenue generating opportunities and the business of the business.
Tap Economies of Scale and Purchasing Power
As Charter Africa, we achieve greater efficiencies and economies of scale because we have a single focus on IT. We consolidate purchasing power and have access to deep and broad knowledge bases. We can therefore deliver better, faster and cheaper technology solutions and services. Using developed best practices, we simply complete tasks far more efficiently, often to an order of magnitude greater, than organizations can do on their own. All this translates into real cost savings in terms of both time and money.
Even a few minutes of systems downtime carry enormous business costs. Maximizing uptime must be a high priority. Organizations can longer afford issues with internet connectivity, email communications, corrupt data or systems failure – the cost of reacting to these events is just too high. Charter Africa offers planned, measured approaches to pro-active systems maintenance, security, backup and disaster recovery. When Charter Africa couple this with remote systems monitoring and 24/7 response capabilities we reduce and often totally eliminate costly downtime.
Reduce Cost and Control Operating Expenses
Predictable IT costs. The business value of Charter Africa goes well beyond the cost reduction of their efficiencies and result in very hard dollar savings. In almost all cases, organizations will spend 25% to 50% less than the cost of even one mid-level IT professional. Additional cost savings are realized since recruiting, training, vacation, sick days, turnover and other management issues are all taken out of the equation.
Technology improves productivity by enabling communication, collaboration, and knowledge sharing that allows employees to innovate. These capabilities are delivered through a multitude of technologies including file servers, central databases, broadband connectivity, mobile platforms, email communications, and many others. However, true productivity and business benefit can only be realized when this complex technology is properly planned, implemented and maintained. The best practices and comprehensive experiences around planning, implementing and maintaining such systems allow Charter Africa to successfully deliver these productivity improvements.
Access Highly Specialized Talent
The complicated nature and rapid change in fields such as legal, accounting and information technology are best left to the experts – if only due to the sheer amount of effort required to gain even baseline knowledge. The resources of Charter Africa allow organizations to draw upon specialized expertise that would otherwise be too expensive to develop and maintain in-house. Organizations cannot cost effectively achieve the human scale and flexibility necessary to properly support their technology environments. Even a very experienced and dedicated IT employee has limits to their skills, and limited avenues for help with issues beyond their grasp. Charter Africa offers access to teams of IT specialists that deliver the cross-sectional IT knowledge needed to provide both on-going and critical support for small business networks.
Realize a Technology Edge Over Competitors
Take advantage of new technologies that will help your business recognize competitive advantage versus just leveling the playing field. Charter Africa keeps up with the latest information technologies through ongoing training and real world experience. We know how to implement the latest hardware, software, and network applications available. As importantly We know which technologies are not worth the investment. The capability of Charter to make rapid moves, helps organizations speed time to market. This offers a competitive advantage and also increases the ability to react to competitive threats.
Access to Otherwise Unavailable Vendor Support
Access to manufacturers is crucial in effectively supporting complex technology. Technology manufacturers traditionally provide little direct end-user support. When available, this support is basic and often unreliable. This is exceedingly frustrating for organizations that call customer support, but rarely receive it. Through a relationship with Charter Africa, Organisations enjoy the benefits of priority access to Microsoft, Cisco and thousands of other technology vendors.Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest
