Architecture & Design Firms IT Support

Successful architecture & design firms are fundamentally different from the average performers and therefore need good divertive IT.  Based on several different analysis, here are a few different characteristics that distinguish IT for these types of firms:

  • The best firms have IT with strong and visionary leadership. Although innovative and creative, these firms need those with a mind for networks and realism keeping the artistic vision together.
  • It takes Project Managers who will rise to leadership type positions at these firms. They also excel at selling all the services the firm has to offer to the client. Whenever problems may arise, It’s the project manager who takes full responsibility and communicates with their clients.
  • Any firm out there wants to recruit only the best people to work for them. IT isn’t any different. And these firms keep their IT people motivated by giving them room to grow. They really understand that without IT, the dream cannot be fulfilled and their apart of the team.
  • All A&D firms have management who understand that adjusting to new technology can be a great frustration for many employees and they make it their job to build support for the transition. That’s of course where IT comes to save the day. These firms make it a goal that there is a short implementation period to set up the technology and train users with the help of IT.
  • Great firms, both big and small, always want to think about the future of technology and rely heavily on IT for this goal plan. These firms design feedback from their IT departments as to what can keep them up to date on the latest trends and how to stay ahead of them.
