Why do it

Project Examples

A group of student technology consultants will come to your place of business and help you work through a specific technology challenge or help you take advantage of existing/new technology available to achieve your goals. Some potential project scopes can include, but are not limited to:

  • Troubleshooting your existing technology (CRM software, email clients, wireless networking, printer, etc)
  • Writing operation and best practice manuals for using your technology
  • Exploring the full potential of your technology
  • Identifying and implementing new technology
  • Technology integration
  • Network setup/connecting wireless devices

Examples of technology questions you might have include:

  • Can I get my email/CRM to do this?
  • I keep getting this error, why?
  • Can I connect these two devices to do this?
  • How do I integrate these two tools so that I can do this?
  • Can you fix these problems that I am having with this technology?
  • Is there some sort of technology out there that can do this?
