1970’s Fledgling Technologies
Mainstream office technology in the 70’s is a hard copy, paper-burdened environment with filing cabinets, snail-mail, rotary phones, and typewriters.
We listened to disco and wore platform shoes, polyester and bell bottoms. Groovy!
1980’s Emergent Technologies
Fax machines, 5? floppy disk, mobile phone brick, IBM PC, Commodore 64, Apple Macintosh, 20 MB hard drive.
We watched MTV, saw Princess Diana get married, sported big hair, parachute pants, shoulder pads, and neon legwarmers.
1990’s Breakthrough Technologies
Word Wide Web, iPhone, ISPs, email, Microsoft Windows 3.x & NT, HP Palm Pilot.
We worried about Y2K and the dot-com bubble. Only one of which was an actual problem. Amazon only sold books.

management consulting to become “best in class”
With deep expertise in every industry, our analysts match each area of your business to its corresponding technology decade, and from there, determine what it will take to become Best In Class across the board. Our gap analysis will further evaluate your company, work with various business units, subject matter experts, analyze existing processes and information systems, then observe those processes in motion.
The resulting Roadmap to Success will illustrate, for each of the seven business areas, the ones you’re already Best In Class, those where you’re close—but could still benefit from a technology update—and the ones that are keeping you from becoming your best vision of the company you know it can be.
This Roadmap to Success will have actionable, prioritized, staged recommendations that can start being implemented right away, along with implementation plans for future projects further down your yellow brick road. Miles Technologies will design optimal systems and processes, then put them in place to help your company succeed.
Helping People Accomplish More
What you bring to the table is not only your team of experts in marketing, software development, and IT support, but also your ability to provide invaluable consultation. It is so unusual to find that in one company. It’s so rare we get constant affirmation of this—how rare it is to meet a company like Miles Technologies, who literally is one vendor, one solution.
