The Fit Assessment gave us an independent analysis of our office technology
"We appreciate outside opinions regarding our network design/development/utilization. If major problems had been found with the CAPSTONE Fit Assessment then we would be able to not only immediately address them but determine how we missed them to begin with. The best thing we liked about the Fit Assessment summary report is that it is very simple and easy to read. As a result of the assessment, we found out that the systems we have in place for the most part are working very well and the areas that need to be addressed can be done in a planned manner."

Business and Technology Fit Assessment
Get the answers to all your IT questions so you can make informed decisions
The Capstone Fit Assessment plays an essential role in identifying any network issues and to begin any IT support, expansion, or upgrade discussions. The objective of the Fit Assessment is to gather comprehensive information about the state of technology for your business in order to determine what is being done well, what needs to change, and the gravity of found points. The scope of the assessment includes the client’s external and internal networks, printers, servers, workstations, mobile devices, and infrastructure present at that moment in time.
The Capstone Fit Assessment is NOT a sales network audit that many IT firms say they provide for free. Free sales network audits are sales tools and you get what you pay for. This is an independent Right-Fit Technology Assessment that you can use to drive your business forward. The findings can be easily turned into a Statement of Work for any IT company to quote.
Steps involved in a Fit Assessment
- Initial interview with members of your organization and a Capstone consultant to discuss your business objectives, areas of concern, wish list, policies, etc.
- Secondary visit and asset inventory; install diagnostic tools for network/security discovery and analysis.
- Assessment team will need full cooperation from client staff for requests and answers to questions, as well as prompt and reasonable access to locations, hardware, documentation (including inventory, purchase, support SLAs, leasing, IT records), systems, equipment and network closets, and anything else related to gathering the necessary data required to compile and complete the Fit Assessment.
- Inspect site locations, including user areas, server, and network closets.
- Compile results.
The information collected is reviewed for trends, problems and issues that are negatively affecting your business in 3 areas. First, we will identify any gaps where business objectives are not being met with the right fit technology. Second, we will identify any network dependability (compliance, uptime, security) issues, Third, we will review your current IT costs and provide stabilization recommendations. You can establish a baseline and learn which areas of your infrastructure offer the best investments in order to achieve your desired network performance, and focus on design, equipment configuration, security and network management strategy improvements.
You will receive an objective multi-page assessment report based on the findings, taking into consideration the your unique business objectives. The report will highlight sources, findings, best practices, and recommendations to mitigate any identified issues.
The Capstone Fit-Assessment is an independent report that looks at your business objectives and technology alignment, network dependability, and an analysis of your current IT spend. It’s an objective report that can be handed to an internal IT team or any external IT company to implement. On average, the assessment costs $100 per user. Factors like number of locations, size, complexity of the network, remote workers, applications used, etc. contribute the cost of the assessment. Every business is different so we are able to give you an exact quote after we learn a little more about your business.
