With the arrival of the pandemic in March, the old saying, “business as usual” went the way of crowded concert halls and overbooked airplanes. Companies that had never operated remotely were suddenly scrambling to turn the majority of their teams into telecommuters. The situation required quick decisions on how the workforce would communicate and collaborate remotely. Some companies rose to the challenge, while others may have struggled. And in fact, may still be struggling.
Tom Pavek, the founder of Pavek Technology Group (PTG), has seen firsthand the results of hastily applied plans that are still creating issues for many companies.
Says Pavek, “It was difficult for many of these companies to think strategically when they were facing urgent deadlines and confronting a situation with no visible end in sight.”
According to Pavek, remote working can really be performed seamlessly if an organization is open to asking themselves the right questions— “Are we doing the right thing?” “Are we able to communicate with our employees and customers in an effective way?” “Are we paying too much for these services?” “What about security?”
Pavek has 30 years’ experience assisting companies effectively work through these questions to arrive at trustworthy, successful, secure, and cost-effective solutions regardless of where employees are located.
PTG—A Wholistic Approach
Over the course of Pavek’s career, the technology has evolved exponentially and will continue to do so. “But to me,” says Pavek, “the solutions begin and have always been about the business requirements.”
“That’s why I take a more holistic approach than other telecom companies,” says Pavek. “I start by investigating the needs of my client. Once I understand those, I map those needs to technology deployed. If there is a gap, I develop a plan to implement and manage the technology.”
Included in the plan are the business requirements, technology recommendations, implementation resources required, change management to obtain user adoption, strategy for maintaining long term, and financial considerations. Best of all, these plans are developed at no charge to the client.
In order to provide optimal solutions, Pavek has established partnerships with more than 100 companies, including Microsoft, Century Link, Comcast Business, Spectrum, and many more. These partnerships allow him to find the right technology for each unique client.
Says Pavek, “Depending on what we are looking at, I can get multiple quotes and provide independent recommendations for a partner whose technology is the best fit for my client. Especially beneficial is the fact that my time is paid for by the selected vendor, not my clients.”
Finally, PTG clients experience a level of one-to-one personalized service that they won’t find at large telecom firms. Instead, they enjoy consistent help, reliable support, and expert advice.
Pavek adds, “Helping my clients really get the most out of their technology is what offers me the most satisfaction.”
