Macrometron is a technology company that supports businesses in the rapid growth phase.
Designed for growth
When your company grows faster than you can manage it, your precious time is spent elsewhere on matters that don’t excite you. Allow us to help you reclaim your time and give you the peace of mind to focus on your unique abilities. Our strength and passion is rooted in emerging technologies, core computing systems, and cloud infrastructure with an implicit focus of its effects on businesses of all sizes. We support companies during the rapid growth phase by designing efficient, agile and powerful systems with continuous support and oversight during the life of the platform.
In a perfect world your new employee would arrive at his or her workspace with all the tools necessary to hit the ground running to forge a productive day. But perfect worlds don’t exist and the reality is that you’ll probably be the person sorting it all out – new workstation, new telephone, company e-mail address, network user account, the list goes on and on. In the end you would have spent more time during the week completing these tasks than actually pushing your business forward. Macrometron offers full support and management of on-premise servers, workstations, peripherals, network hardware and mobile devices.
How much is your time worth? Researching a proper tech solution on your own can be taxing and multiple and hours spent wading through pages of outdated reviews can leave you puzzled even further. Macrometron can be your trusted advisor in all things tech related. We advise our clients through the selection and project implementation phases, and provide ongoing management of the unique system once it reaches production status. While Macrometron provides a suite of services for small, midsize and enterprise customers, all of our clients can expect resilient systems, nimble response times and exceptional customer service.
As with architecture and engineering, a structure can only be as strong as its underlying foundation. This rule also applies to information technology and business systems. This is especially true considering the hyper advancements in computer hardware, software, and cloud platforms. Laying the proper groundwork is a crucial step prior to building up infrastructure. Not only does a foundation have to be strong but it has to have the capacity to grow quickly and to scale with the pace of the company. We believe in building strong systems from the beginning and in making weak systems more efficient and resilient to time.
“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”-Steve Jobs
So what’s our process like? First we like to meet with the client to see if we can establish a good working agreement. We then start by examining the existing system to see what works and what doesn’t. We identify operating costs and find ways to reduce it through cloud technologies. We propose projects that we believe will benefit the client and will add more value in the long run and we only recommend technologies that we trust and use on a daily basis. Once a project has been approved and planned, we execute, monitor, tune, and optimize. We prioritize capturing the process of any project in clear documentation on a per client basis so that we know as much as possible about the system. Support is key and we provide ongoing maintenance through the life cycle of the system to ensure the best performance. The following pillars of our process comprise of planning, execution, documentation, monitoring, tuning, and migration.
”If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I would spend the first four sharpening the axe.” -Abraham Lincoln. Every project is different and thus presents its own set of unique characteristics. Everything comes down to proper planning. Our accumulated knowledge is predicated on our constant state of research and development. We fail faster in a virtual sandbox to ensure success in a production environment.
Measure twice, cut once. Execution: to perform by carrying out or put into effect a plan, order, or course of action. Being in the state of readiness is what excites us and being prepared to execute a project on location is a testament to our research and planning. The aptness of our team to execute quickly sets our company apart from the average break-fix computer shop down the street.
“Programs must be written for people to read, and only incidentally for machines to execute” -Harold Abelson. Well written documentation goes beyond just tracking the current state of your system. We specialize in document creation such as process diagramming, frequently asked questions (FAQ) building, technology policies, and best practices for new employee onboarding.
“What gets measured gets managed” -Peter Drucker. As a managed service provider we use various metrics to our advantage when monitoring the health of any system. When compared to a typical break-fix shop that only reacts to failures, we remain proactive in monitoring and maintaining your system for disruptions and tune it accordingly. A well optimized system rarely has any problems.
“The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” -Bill Gates. Like any fine musical instrument, your business system can be tuned to work at its true potential. Allow us to give you the proper perspective.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has become very reliable and widely available to any business willing to make the investment. To a certain degree, hosting any local network service or resource adds up in costs over time. Whether it’s a relational database, data archiving, or communications systems, we can show you the way next generation companies leverage the power of the cloud.
