The Hodgson Consulting & Solutions Difference
We thrive in companies with multiple locations and/or a remote workforce.
That means we understand the unique IT and business related challenges of companies like yours. We understand your need to have access to your critical information, documents and applications from remote locations as well as your need to have your data shared securely. This is why our tech support team is skilled at ensuring that all of your workers, regardless of their location; have access to the same functionality and usability without slowness or work-arounds just as if they were in the office.
On-staff citrix subject matter experts.
Our expertise in Citrix is so specialized that we help write the certification exams. Our Citrix specialized engineers are on-staff to deliver the correct and most effective solutions to you. This means that you will be able to get someone on the phone that truly knows Citrix AND understands YOUR systems, who can answer questions and provide actual resolutions not “band aid” fixes.
We own our US based data-center environment.
All of your data is guaranteed to be backed up and stored in the US. Unlike other companies that store your data in public clouds or use third party cloud storage, which can store your data in unknown parts of the world. Leaving you to “have faith” that they have reputable employees with reliable systems keeping your data safe. With us, you have 100% certainty of the exact location where your data is stored and the confidence that our trained staff maintains direct management of your mission critical data and systems.
Our US based help desk answers your calls live and staffed by our experienced Hodgson Consulting & Solutions technicians.
All of our Help Desk staff are managed and employed by Hodgson Consulting & Solutions – we hand selected, screened and trained every employee in accordance with our high standards. We NEVER outsource our help desk to a third party or use any offshore employees or services. Companies and government agencies under compliance regulations such as ITAR can rest assured that our Help Desk is maintained and managed solely by US persons in US location.
We offer and service both hosted cloud and on-premise cloud solutions.
Not all clouds are the same and not one type of Cloud is right for everyone. Our philosophy is and always has been to offer what is BEST for your company, not us. We base our recommendations on what YOU want and what YOU feel most comfortable with. Our responsibility is to educate you on the pros and cons of each and guide you to the best solution for your company.
No blame - No excuses.
We are the only IT Company in the Chicagoland area that guarantees that you will never hear one of our employees blame another vendor when issues arise. When you choose Hodgson Consulting & Solutions, we take full responsibility of your IT support from the day we take over.
