Comprehensive IT Assessment

Shipshape IT’s policy mandates that a comprehensive assessment of your existing IT ecosystem be done ahead of solution or strategy implementation. Our meticulous approach involves collecting information on key business functions through a comprehensive Support Requirements Assessment (SRA). Shipshape IT’s SRAs are high-level assessments conducted by our finest senior staff – going far beyond taking inventory of basic computer functions and network performance. Assessment operations are recorded and documented as a starting point for averting future untimed operations disruptors and their associated costs.

Customized IT Solutions to Meet Your Business Needs

Dwindling operations signal a forthcoming dip in performance and productivity and a spike in costs.
