Posted on Thursday, April 12th, 2012 by

Thanks to Brad Nellis of the Northeast Ohio Software Association (NEOSA) for a great interview and article on his blog, highlighting Skoda Minotti and its extensive technology and telecommunications practice – Skoda Minotti Technology Partners.

Read an exerpt of the article below:

NEOSA members are a diverse lot: software companies, web companies, IT services and so forth. But our membership also includes an IT services provider embedded in a CPA firm, Skoda Minotti Technology Partners. It does seem a little different, but it actually makes sense too. And they’re making it work quite well.

I spent some time recently with Brian Rosenfelt, who’s a principal with the tech practice; he shared some insight into the group.

NEOSA: So, tell us a little of the business – history, services, markets and so forth.

SMTP: We’re a full-service technology consulting firm, within the framework of a CPA, business and financial advisory firm, providing services for small- and mid-sized businesses, nonprofits and local municipalities. Specific to the IT business, we offer fully outsourced IT services for those companies without in-house IT expertise, and also provide project based and supplemental services to larger organization with their own IT personnel. We’ve also developed a comprehensive telecommunication business, providing structured cabling, phone systems and help with identifying the right telecom provider. Our newest set of offerings is focused on security: vulnerability assessments, IT auditing, HIPAA security consulting and more.

NEOSA: Providing IT services as part of a CPA firm is a little unique; how did that come about?

SMTP: About eight years ago, as the CPA firm was growing, more and more requests regarding IT services started coming in from the firm’s accounting clients. Our in-house IT department started to take on those projects, and it soon became apparent that it was a viable profit center. One of the internal IT employees came to the partners with a business plan for growing that part of the business … and here we are today.
