Data Management: Is Bigger Always Better?

Posted by: Nathan Cook

Are global information management companies actually a better alternative to local companies who offer the same solutions?


I am often asked what makes my company different – and what separates us from our well-known and nationally recognized competitors. My answer is an easy one…”EVERYTHING!”

Working with a local company versus a global organization has numerous advantages. When it comes to information management solutions, these advantages are even more critical. You not only want the service provider that handles your mission critical information to be trustworthy and reliable you want them to be accessible and mutually invested in the success of your company. When faced with the demands of today and the challenges of tomorrow, turn to those you know, trust, and can see, to assist you in meeting your information management needs.

The benefits of managing and storing your information locally rather than globally:

Experience and Teamwork: Local companies offer a team of experienced employees that work together to provide a systematic approach to security and confidentiality, are passionate about their jobs and are proud to work for a company that takes great pride in their employees. These companies are community driven, and they know their employees are their most valuable asset. As a result, they take great pride in their company, their service and their ability to assist their clients.

Customer service that exceeds all expectations: With a locally run company, you have a dedicated team that takes a personal approach to customer service and accountability. They take the time to get to know each client and their specific needs so that they can offer the highest level of customized customer service. With a local organization, you actually call a local phone number, not a 1-800 number. You will receive the confidence that your call is important, that your request will be a priority and will receive prompt attention. You are not just a number when you work with a local organization. You are a customer with a name that matters.

You can save a significant amount of money: Locally owned and operated companies are able to control costs without sacrificing experience, professionalism or third party certifications! You get local service from a team that is familiar with the area and is able to be flexible with times and schedules that better accommodate the needs of our customers. You can save both time and money when going local, rather than global.

Money earned locally is invested locally: When you do business with a local organization, you can feel confident that your money will remain local and will be invested back into the local economy. This is a win-win for everyone.

In recent years, a local movement has begun. You often hear, “Shop Local.” This is a movement that encourages consumers to move away from large box stores and introduces them to local organizations or people doing business in their own communities. Why not shop local for your information management service providers too? I promise you, it will make all the difference in the world.
