Thinking about the USA?
Step Ahead Technology can help your business take an exciting step across the Atlantic. With a focus on small to medium UK businesses who may be considering expanding into the USA, we can offer a range of services to suit the smaller budget.
We have the background and experience to support your company whilst you step into the largest and most advanced economy in the world. We are a small organization with very low overheads and so we can offer a very competitive pricing model which can be tailored to suit your strategy. For example, we could simply provide just an advisory or consultancy role at the initial phase of the project, perhaps through a feasibility study. Alternatively, we can provide a range of services on both sides of the Atlantic to suit the needs of your business.
One key message here is that nobody understands your own business better than you do. Our aim at Step Ahead Technology is to work closely with you and so that we understand how your business works in the UK and how you would like it to operate in the USA. We can provide the business analysis expertise to help you to make the decisions and define in detail the process for the USA.
