What should sporting facilities be looking for in an IT provider?

IT Partner and not an IT company, is there is a difference?

If we can offer any advice to clients in the Sports and Hospitality arena it would be to look for an IT Partner and not an IT company, there is a difference.

A partnership from CSCM’s point of view is a longstanding trusting relationship that entwines with another organisation to form a robust and structured plan to achieve and excel in all areas by utilising technology. This sector can be complicated when it comes to IT solutions, by having a strong IT partner that knows the business will ensure that systems and infrastructure are regularly assessed and continually improved to ensure all components of the organisation excel.

The decision to make changes should not be a quick process, an IT company should really deep dive into your organisation and work closely with your key management teams to understand initially how the business works, what the business needs, current pain points and long-term goals. This should provide the IT provider with an initial understanding of what the partnership/project will be in order for them to then come back with their initial findings and recommendations.

CSCM are proud to be strategic partners to their clients, by gaining insight into a business we use the wealth of knowledge we hold to deliver high-level IT solutions, to make business work more effectively, efficiently and consistently.

This is the difference between an IT Partnership and an IT Company.
