We work with small
to medium sized businesses to align your IT strategy with business
We believe that information
technology should support your business goals, not be a barrier to reaching them. To that end, we look first
at your overall business goals and vision, and then discuss with you
the specific problems you are trying to solve. From there we analyze
your current processes and systems and recommend appropriate technologies
for your needs and for your budget.
We also believe that not every business system or process needs to
be automated. In fact sometimes the best technology
is pen and paper and a good filing system. The need to move to electronic systems depends
on the size and complexity of the information you need to successfully
run your business. For example, card catalogs worked for small town
libraries for many decades, but eventually communications technology
allowed libraries to link together in regional systems, vastly increasing
the volume and complexity of the data; automating the card catalog
added value for the patrons who had access to far more books than before,
without the home library having to purchase all the items their patrons
Inherent in this vision is the understanding that as technology and
the economic equations change, a given technology that is not appropriate
or proven today may well be in the future.
Your Independent I.T. Strategist/Lynn Goodhue
Associates is known for being professional and approachable,
clearly understanding complex ideas yet able to translate technical
concepts into lay terms.
We know how important it is for you and staff to know why a specific
technology was implemented, and have been sufficiently trained to understand
how and when to use it.
Sometimes the need for automation depends on outside forces, including
regulations that require you to automate some systems to stay in business.
For example, medical offices are now being required to implement an
electronic medical record. We can help you understand the requirements
and help you find solutions that make sense for your business.
