Client testimonial

Accelerating Improvements to IT Projects and Systems

“When WIN first came to Lucas County Health Center, we had endured several years with no IT strategy and it showed. WIN provided the groundwork and helped create an IT based strategic plan for Lucas County that allowed us to balance finances with IT improvement. They were patient and innovative, and helped determine the best path for us given our current financial situation. I appreciated their expertise in IT security and systems and am happy we continue to partner with WIN.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Our onboarding process consists of two elements. The first is a professional services project engagement we call Sightline that generally runs for 3 – 6 months. A Sightline uncovers nuanced aspects of your environment that are frequently not discoverable until our team is actively engaged in the managed services agreement. This focused activity ensures we have the information needed to successfully partner with you to manage your environment.  

The second element is the ramp-up of active participation in the managed services activities. In some scenarios these two activities occur simultaneously. In others, the Sightline activity leads to the implementation of our operational resources.   

Implementation of our service components typically will not extend beyond 8 weeks once hardware and licensing are available. However, if we are engaging in a new client engagement, there will be more time needed to learn more about overall business needs and go through the onboarding process. 

The pricing for a Co-managed IT Service engagement is dependent on various factors and will be determined after we learn about your current environment, the services you need, and the areas that will be impacted. All of these activities are part of our proposal process. 

For the labor component, we have a unique model that moves away from the traditional approach of “per user” or “per device” and instead focuses on the time that it takes to support your environment. Our clients have remarked on how much they appreciate the transparency in the model, and how they see it as making it easier to understand the value they receive as well as collaborating to manage costs.  

For all other recurring and non-recurring expense areas — including procurement of hardware and software, use of hosted infrastructure (cloud), and presence of tools in the environment (e.g. RMM agents) — usage levels determine the related costs. 

Our approach to communicating is designed to drive success and keep all members of the team aligned and in the know. We work with you to inform, guide and activate your team through clear communication and quarterly business reviews.   

  • Inform: Informative communications is delivered as the baseline data to convey what’s transpiring in your environment with your systems and our services to support decision making on IT priorities.
  • Guide: Guided communications add benchmarks and other reference points to support your decisions and help you prioritize forward-facing initiatives with confidence.
  • Activate: Activated communications extend guided insights into pragmatic planning and actions that produce value you can recognize and attain, providing both efficiency and effectiveness.
