When I first left my job about 4 years ago to start BlueSodium, it was to be a company that made and sold software. We wrote mobile apps, as well as a web app (SaaS) named PBXReports.
BlueSodium gradually transitioned into a company that did Network Consulting, mostly because of my background as a Cisco CCIE. Then for a while, we focused on doing Nortel / Avaya specific network consulting.
As time went on,we drifted back into doing a lot of general networking, supporting a wide array of Vendors …Cisco, Sonicwall, Meraki, Avaya, Nortel, Juniper, HP ; And product lines…Routers, switches , Firewalls, Wireless Access Points (WAPS) etc
In the past year or so , we made a conscious decision to do something a little bit different. We decided to become a Managed Service Provider. Without going into too much detail, here are the reasons why.
- We have the expertise
- We can better manage the relationship with the Client
- We are more efficient when we are able to influence many parts of our Clients’ IT
- More and more Customers prefer to have a single provider for their IT needs
So there you have it. We now define ourselves primarily as a Managed Service Provider in New Jersey, or to quote my friend John Volker, BlueSodium is open for business!!!
