Nexxus is a consulting led business, run by business
people for business people. We consult with clients to ensure their IT
strategy is aligned to their business strategy; IT is not just about risk,
but also about enablement: how can technology help you achieve what you want
for your business?
We also recognise that IT can require significant
investment; and if that investment has already been made, Nexxus offers an
independent IT audit to help your business understand what you really own. If
you are planning to invest in another business, what are you buying in terms
of IT? Combined with our IT budget planning service, this will help you have
increased visibility of your IT spend.
As technology changes, Nexxus's technology research is
focused on keeping abreast of the latest hardware and software solutions to
ensure our clients have the most cost effective and functional IT systems.
IT projects can often not run as smoothly as you would
like. Nexxus offers project management service to oversee IT installations,
office moves and new system set ups. Running a company without a full time IT
Director means you are often faced with investment decisions in an area you
may not fully understand. Technology changes, terminology seems to be
designed to confuse. Nexxus can act as your part time IT director to help
support you and your Board.
Whether you need a new user added to your network, help
with an application, have login issues or need server software updated, you
will need an IT support team.
Many of our activities are pro-active tasks, monitoring
and carrying out maintenance, so you won't need to call.
But at times, there undoubtedly be an issue arising
that needs a call. We like to think we have intelligent people who can
understand your requirement and meet your needs promptly.
We will regularly report back on how your systems have
been performing, how often your team have used our service desk For a lot of
businesses, your website is an important part of your marketing strategy, but
if you don't have the resources to manage it (looking after hosting,
maintenance, content or domain names) Nexxus can give you peace of mind.
Nexxus IT Support is your single point of contact for
all your technology requirements.
IT Director Services
Recruiting a full time IT Director, for a company with
under 300 staff, often does not represent a good commercial decision.
However, the role of the IT director is still important.
This role provides the link between the Board and the
IT department, and is instrumental in deciding the IT strategy (to ensure it
meets the business requirements both now and in the future) and setting the
IT budgets. It also involves overseeing the work of the IT department both
from a service perspective and in delivering complex IT projects.
Nexxus can act as a part time IT director to help
support you and your Board. We can work with clients on a retainer basis,
submitting reports to the Board, meeting with the Finance Director or
Managing Director as required. We recommend budgets and ensure any purchases
made fall within them.
When it comes to IT, Nexxus can take the headaches away
from the Board, meaning that technology problems are never on the agenda.
IT budget planning
Despite the amount of spend allocated to IT, there is
often not enough expert planning in deciding how much should be budgeted: the
finance team will rely on help from the IT department whose primary focus is
in on fixing servers and supporting end users. This results in mid-year
capital expenses that are often large and unexpected.
Nexxus can be your link between IT and the business,
providing realistic assessments of the spend required, based on experience
from a wide variety of clients and knowledge of the costs of purchasing and
setting up the infrastructure.
Nexxus invests in R&D, attending conferences, meeting
suppliers and testing solutions within our own network environment. As a
vendor-independent business, this research allows us to recommend the most
suitable solutions for clients in an ever changing world of technology and
We do offer our technology research services directly
for clients who want us to assess different options to meet a need unique to
their business. This includes selecting and recommending a particular piece
of software or a device that meets the requirements of their team.
By carrying out this research, in an independent way,
we can save our clients money and as importantly ensure they have the
solution that meets their long term requirements.
