What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When looking to hire an IT professional visit their website. Their website should list years in business and client's in which they have established an ongoing relationship. Their website should be more than one page and list their core competencies as many IT companies are specialists rather than generalists. If possible hire IT generalists. Generalists have exposure in many different areas and can troubleshoot much more efficient.
