IT Assessment

Optimize your IT investment

An IT Assessment answers the question, “What do we have now, and how well is it working?”

Seitel Systems’ IT Assessment compares a snapshot of your IT environment with industry standards and best practices. We make comprehensive recommendations for improving security, reliability, and performance of your networked systems. 

 Why do you need an It assessment?

Seitel Systems IT Assessment helps your organization optimize its IT investment and plan for future business needs.

Before you go making any big changes to your IT environment, you need to establish a “baseline” of health – evaluating the security, reliability, and performance of your current systems. And even if you don’t have any big upgrades planned, an IT Assessment can reveal underlying problems that may contribute to day-to-day user support issues.

Accordingly, we strongly recommend that all new Seitel Systems clients undergo an Assessment as part of the initial onboarding process. Because while we can support your users by uncovering problems as we go, we’ve found that the knowledge we gain during an Assessment makes our support team much more efficient from the get go… saving you money in the long run.

During the assessment process, we will:

  • Review current network systems and infrastructure
  • Review servers and services to assess overall function and performance
  • Evaluate existing network documentation
  • Review email system and anti-spam solution
  • Review backup systems and processes
  • Review antivirus implementation, distribution, and effectiveness
  • Inspect Internet security and related policies
  • Analyze current local and wide area network (LAN/WAN) performance and investigate future needs
  • Research and develop specific recommendations for improvement and growth

The Assessment report includes:

  • Summary of analysis findings 
  • Overview of the network, servers, and supporting systems
  • Schematic design and layout of the current LAN/WAN
  • Specific recommendations to improve network security, performance, function, and reliability

The IT Assessment gives a detailed snapshot of where your network stands today, along with detailed recommendations for improvement of those existing systems. But if you are thinking about the future, it might make sense to plan for replacing or upgrading some of those systems rather than repairing what you’ve already got.

That’s where high-level strategic IT design comes in to the conversation. Click below to learn about the next phase, where we help you build an IT Roadmap to where your business wants to go from here.

Think you can't afford cybersecurity defense?

think again.

For years, the cybersecurity industry has overlooked SMBs as too "small potatoes" for robust security solutions, and most SMBs think they can't afford effective cyberdefense strategies.

At Seitel Systems, we have next generation intrusion detection and response capabilities that you won't find in our competitors. Not only that, we've baked them into our affordable SRP proactive support packages . . . for as few as 10 workstations.

Transparency matters to us at Seitel Systems. We don't resell hardware or softwareso you can trust our recommendations. We are dedicated to providing the best advice we can without any vested interest or vendor bias.
