With over 20 years of being in the technology and/or engineering business, one thing for sure is that we are experienced. Since our initial shift towards IT consulting over a decade ago, we’ve broadened our services to include Internet, phone, Genius Squad, and telecom expense management. But our true growth is not in the expansion of services we offer, but in the solid processes that have been developed to help us deliver our service efficiently and effectively.
HiPoint's philosophy is built on the belief that small business and residential customers need not be relegated to a second-class status when it comes to services and support.
So we set out to devise a model that provided smaller customers many of the advantages that were often reserved for large corporations. This included higher quality support, preferred pricing, and greater overall responsiveness. Initially, we applied this approach towards IT Consulting, but today we implement this across all our products.
Our underlying strategy to execute this philosophy often involves the idea of group or bulk purchasing of services, such that traditionally smaller customers are treated (from a business sense) as larger entities. For example, when it comes to providing Internet services, we treat all customers within a building (or general area) as one larger customer, thus allowing them to leverage their purchasing power to obtain preferred pricing and higher quality services not normally available to residential or small business users.
While making a successful business has a lot to do with being profitable, there has to be more to success than making a whole bunch of money. We believe a lot of it has to do with the idea of building something new, making things better, and improving your abilities. Stated simply, we promote the idea of moving forward, both personally and professionally, and feel that this more all-encompassing approach towards a positive direction results in a richer experience for all involved.
We also emphasize the human aspect of what we do; in the end we are servicing people, resolving issues for people, responding to the frustration of people, and hopefully making things better for people. That’s why, especially in the area of support, we value so highly the ideas of empathy and resolve; feel for the customer and have the resolve to solve their problem, making them feel good about the interaction.
