Vertikal6 Launches Proprietary Software Platform to Help Companies Drive IT Success

Introducing ESP – Powerful IT Success Software providing companies with visibility into the ongoing health of their IT

WARWICK, RI – [March 6, 2019] – Vertikal6, a full-service IT consultant and software developer, today officially launched ESP (Elevated Strategy Platform), their own proprietary software developed to help companies adhere to and surpass IT best practices.

With over 160 questions within six IT areas, ESP generates a Strategy Report outlining a company’s IT strengths and risks, as well as documenting the level of risk and anticipated timing. Vertikal6 utilizes these reports to develop a plan to align strategic and technology goals, showing companies where they are following best practices, where they fall short, and recommendations to mitigate each identified risk.

“Today, we’re excited to officially launch a platform that can give companies visibility into the ongoing health of their IT in six key areas so they can make the right decisions, eliminate surprises, remove roadblocks and keep their teams productive,” said Chief Executive Officer, Rick Norberg. “We’re a technology firm, so why not utilize technology to help our clients succeed? There was a void in the market when it came to tools that help drive IT success. Our software aligns all IT information and insights in one place to proactively track, manage, and forecast IT budgets all from one system. We are taking years of best practices and infusing them into ESP.”

Then, we leverage this insight across all aspects of our organization with key activities, goals and milestones that are specific to us.
