Optimal Networks

Providing Consulting Firms Peace of Mind Since 1991.

Take the stress and uncertainty out of your technology.

Client Success Story

The team at Evans Consulting, a boutique consulting firm, knew they could be getting an even better return on their IT investment. They took the extra step to make sure their technology is not just aligned with their goals, but fueling them.

We Know Consulting Firms

Your clients hire you for your expertise. Whether you serve law firms, government agencies, corporations, nonprofit organizations, or individuals, the value you provide to those clients is in the knowledge your firm has acquired and compiled from every consultant over all your years in business.

 

This means that the ability to easily store, access, and collaborate on deliverables is paramount to your success as a firm. In some cases, these deliverables are also highly sensitive and subject to various security frameworks that you or your clients are held to (HIPAA, CMMC, or otherwise). That leaves your firm with the delicate and complex task of balancing security controls with ease of use.

After serving the technology needs of consulting firms for over three decades, we know the pressure you’re under to minimize both risk and any sort of friction that impacts your team’s ability to work (and bill) seamlessly. As a professional services firm ourselves, we know how important it is to preserve and improve your reputation.

 

All told, we know how to solve the problems unique to firms like yours, and we know how to get buy-in across your company. Take a look at our process below to see what we mean.

Optimal came in and gave us an unbiased and factual explanation of our options. It was clear they had our business objectives and best interests in mind.

Before, our team would gather and say ‘it would be great if we could…’ but now we can. There is an increased organizational confidence in our technology which impacts the psychology of our team.

Optimal has bright, intelligent folks with very good personalities. They’ve elevated our opinion of having managed services.

I’m confident that the ultra-secure environment we envisioned has been realized with Optimal’s guidance.

    Moving Consulting Firms Forward

    In today’s world of remote and hybrid work technology is central to every consulting firm’s ability to delight their clients and grow their business. And as The Great Resignation has shown us, a flexible work environment is also crucial when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent.

    This is why our process, from day one, revolves around the principles of alignment and accountability. We won’t lose sight of your goals, and you won’t lose sight of our progress. Our engagement is a partnership, and we’re in it together.

    We Assess Consulting Firms

    We kick our new client engagements off with a comprehensive assessment of your technology environment, your mission and goals, and how the two align. Through business-level interviews with a cross-section of your team, network exploration, and a gap analysis based on best practices for firms like yours, our CIO Consultants craft a plain-English report detailing our recommendations—including a prioritized IT Roadmap to guide our partnership.
    This gets both of our teams squarely on the same page as far as what “success” looks like, and provides clear, defined milestones to which you can hold us accountable.

    We Support Consulting Firms

    Now that we understand your systems, your mission, and what matters to you, we get started with support. To us, “support” means keeping your mission-critical data safe and accessible, eliminating technology headaches for your staff and consultants, maximizing flexibility (while maintaining security) in the age of hybrid work, minimizing the threat of costly downtime, and liberating you to focus on serving your clients.
    You have a friendly, patient, solution-oriented team behind you. And with ongoing metrics and feedback to measure performance, our relationship stays on track.

    We Advance Consulting Firms

    With your systems running smoothly and your team empowered to work effectively, we can shift our gaze forward. Are there efficiencies to be gained that would delight your staff and clients alike? Are there security controls to implement that would satisfy even the most demanding client audits? Are there technology trends on the horizon that you could harness for the benefit of your firm?
    Nothing makes us happier than making a quantifiable impact on your firm’s success. Most executives don’t mind an ROI like that, either.

    We’ve Got You Secured.

    It takes just a few minutes to know if hybrid work has exposed vulnerabilities in your firm.
