Construction businesses are managed differently than they were only a few years ago. From written plans to computer-based engineering and project management to advanced collaboration with clients — nearly every aspect of your business requires advanced information technology to be efficient and effective. Your workforce may be logging in from a job site or at a client’s remote location, and everything has to work seamlessly if you want to prove you’re the best construction firm to grab a lucrative bid. Finding the right information technology partner for your construction business is crucial for construction firms in Polk County. Here’s how you can expect to leverage this expertise to help grow your business and provide the best possible service to your most demanding customers.
Focusing on Your Expertise
You may have noticed that your business runs more effortlessly when you have specialists focused on the jobs at hand. Just as you don’t want a plumber putting on a roof, you also don’t want to have someone without the proper experience managing your information technology and network infrastructure. Finding the right team for the job can be a challenge, just as in many aspects of your business. You need to be sure that the information technology partner that you select will thoroughly understand the needs of your business and be willing to adapt to changing environments in the future. When you focus your energy on running your business instead of managing day-to-day operations such as your network, you’ll find that the entire business benefits from the shift.
Creating a Coordinated Workflow
Construction is a waterfall business: if the correct materials are not ordered in a timely manner upstream in the process, then you’ll have a difficult time putting a home together correctly. Information technology supports many of your daily activities from project management to ordering and allows you to create a coordinated workflow that has a measure of checks and balances at all critical points in your process. This seamless integration of current systems with our advanced protection suite ensures that you have exceptional access to the information assets that you and your team need to be successful.

Our always-on availability, cloud-based computing models and secure backup and recovery processes provide you with the stable infrastructure and application access that your team needs.

Benefits of Working with Alltek for Your Information Technology Needs
Unlike some other technology providers that do not work directly with construction firms, the engineers and support personnel at Alltek actively research the challenges that are facing those in the construction business today. Even if you already have an internal IT staff, they may not have the time to support all of the various needs of your team and customers. This is particularly true for smaller construction companies, as the active job market can find you priced out of your best talent.
