Our Mission: Helping you achieve your goals through strategy and support. Our Goal: Empowering you to make better decisions.

We work hard to engage with your organization, to help you better understand the impact of your choices, and find ways to continually improve your ability to achieve success. The core of our process is self-improvement through alignment with our standards, along with consistent evaluation and re-assessment of those standards. This results in reduced risk and increased efficiency while empowering you with more command and control over your organization. This requires discipline and a real commitment to your ongoing success.  We value our relationships and ultimately know that your success is our success. Are you ready to make better decisions?

“When we moved offices, there was an issue with our internet, which ended up being a problem with our network. Avid Practice was able to come in and fix that very quickly.” Financial Services Firm, Baltimore MD
These solutions are combined with the proactive management and maintenance of our Premier Care service. This means that valuable data and hosted applications remain safe from loss and easily recoverable in the event of hardware or software failure, or disaster.

There are three major components of Premier Care, all provided by members of your Care Team.

Inspections:  We continuously observe and document the current state of your technology. This is essential in establishing deficiencies and tracking progress made during our relationship. Inspections are the foundation for creating your strategic plan and proactively maintaining your company’s technology infrastructure.

Consultations: As inspections are completed, our Care Team reports (in plain English) how your existing technology aligns with your business goals, along with strategic recommendations, so you can make better business decisions. We help develop your long-term technology strategy, budget, and acquisition processes based on risk and impact. This results in more effective IT with more predictable costs.

Proactive and Reactive Care: Our Care Team focuses on minimizing disruptive experiences by proactively maintaining and reactively supporting your business technology. We monitor and manage your systems 24/7/365, install critical patches and security updates, maintain antivirus compliance, validate backups, monitor critical services, and track open issues. (This is typically done during your off hours, so you stay as safe and productive as possible.) When an issue arises, the Care Team is your first point of contact for all support requests. Want help with Outlook? Need to add a user or change security permissions? No problem! Contact us as often as needed, without fear of incurring extra charges (except for matters that fall outside of Premier Care, as described below).
