Gateway Offers IT Consulting Services to Small Businesses

Most fortune 500 companies and other large corporations are getting their IT consulting services from top companies like Dell, HP and IBM. Unfortunately, while these services are affordable for larger businesses, they are not necessarily a possibility for small- and medium-sized businesses looking for IT management services. Most of the time, small and medium sized businesses have to depend on smaller VARs and other IT consulting firms that could offer custom-made services to their businesses.

Gateway offers IT management and IT consulting services including enterprise level networking, virtualization, consolidation and infrastructure planning and deployment to help small businesses. According to spokespeople, packages will start at $4,000. Packages will include audits and advice on solutions. Gateway will also be offering disaster prevention and recovery services along with offline and online backup solutions, migration services and storage options. This marks the first initiative by a larger company to provide IT consulting services geared specifically towards small- to medium-sized businesses.
