Consulting Services

February 11th, 2009 · No Comments

Need help with your company’s technology? Need some CIO/CTO level expertise from and external source? I’ve been doing consulting and coaching in the following areas:

  • Outsourced CTO/CIO Solutions
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
  • Strategic Business Planning / Analysis
  • Business Process Automation / System Architecture Services
  • Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Marketing through Corporate Blogging / Social Media
  • Voice over IP / PBX / Telephony
  • Hardware & Software Selection / Implementation / Planning
  • Custom Software Development (Web sites, Desktop, Back-end Systems)
  • Call Center Business  & Technology
My Methodology (Overview)
  • Discovery Phase
    • What are the tough problems (Tech & Business) that need solving?
    • What has been tried in the past? What solutions are currently in place?
    • What are the timelines involved?
    • What resources (financial, human) are available?
  • Solution Analysis Phase
    • Together, we define the possible solutions and costs, and select the best one.
    • We figure out which resources are needed and how to bring them to bare on the problem.
    • We define the milestones, tasks, and timelines.
  • Implementation Phase
    • As a team, we move forward a quickly as possible with an emphasis on completing the project on time and under budget.
    • We focus on using simple low cost technologies to create business value.
    • We get results through consistent follow up and course correction. (This is the key to successful implementation. A great plan not executed is a waste of time and money.)
Why Use Me For Consulting?

I’m a practical, down to earth, technology guy that doesn’t need to speak technology 100% of the time. I understand how to use technology to solve the greater business needs. I’ve got a BS degree in Computer Science, worked as a software developer, VP of Research & Development/Engineering, and CTO/CIO in several technology & general business startups. For more on my background you can see my resume here. But don’t take my word for it, see what others are saying:

“Tyler Whitaker has served as the Green Industry’s tech guru for years. He gets it — that IT is supposed to decrease costs and improve service. If your firm’s IT experiences more often than not ‘work’ the other way around, then the LM InfoTech Consulting Club is just what the doctor ordered.”
— Marty Whitford   Editor-in-Chief Questex Media Group

“Tyler enjoys a technical background with the abilities of seeing things from an executive perspective. Tyler was able to build a team on a shoestring budget and get strong performance in a short amount of time. Tyler also negotiated beneficial deals with vendors that saved the company a lot of money. I would recommend Tyler in either an CTO or COO role.”
Greg Collier, Vice President, Business Development, Berkeley Data Systems
“Ed Ekstrom, Dennis Wood and I were very fortunate to be able to recruit Tyler Whitaker into Symbiot Business Group. At Symbiot, Tyler was able to apply his world-class technological skill and business insight into building, “Service Center” a robut set of technology tools to manage the growing Symbiot ecosystem. I recommend Tyler very highly and look forward to working with him again!”
Gavin Christensen, Senior Associate, vSpring Capital
