IT Services with an eye toward human connection

ABOUT US

Blue Lotus Services

is a niche IT firm emphasizing human connection over mindless automation, whose owner has been providing excellent IT support for 35+ years. We believe technology should serve to strengthen our connections, not replace them. Our experience in the Information Systems field has put us at the epicenter of the evolution of technology, including the constant reinventions and planned obsolescence just to take your money. We are mindful of our clients’ budget dollars and aware of the dangers of wasting money by adopting the latest technology just because it’s trending.

Each technology solution we recommend is hand-crafted after listening to what’s important to you, how you do business, and what your actual needs are. We will never use Artificial Intelligence to generate a solution for your unique needs, or to reduce your constituencies to data points.

Adept at systems design and implementation.

We’ve successfully implemented technology in a broad array of organizations, from multi-national global corporations to one person offices, since before the first personal computer was introduced or local or wireless networking was a thing. We know the names and scopes of the components often change, but their functionality and the business processes they support do not.

Key strengths include truly understanding our clients and how they do business, identifying systemic gaps and how to fill them before they become problems, scanning the existing environment for ways to gain efficiencies, and identifying weak spots and tweaking processes so they flow better.

Collaborating in an abundant Universe.

The resources we all need are widely available, if we use them wisely and cooperatively. Open Source solutions play an important role in the IT world. Planned obsolescence is popular, but not sustainable. We can use available resources in such a way that all beings can thrive, and Blue Lotus Services has built our business model in such a way as to prove that. Will you join us?

Examine It.

Dismantle It.

Through donations via Tech Soup, non-profits have access to a wide array of applications, mostly subscription based, but how do we know if they are helpful or harmful? Do they harvest anonymous data and feed it into machine learning systems, profiting without recompense?

We simply cannot continue to adopt new technology blindly, relying on the good faith of vendors, whose only motive is profit.

Even with the best of intentions, studies show bias is implicit in Artificial Intelligence, and further exacerbates the existing problems that stem from systemic oppression.
See Coded Bias on Netflix for detailed analysis and examples.

We have the opportunity to examine these systems and dismantle them by making informed choices.

Current & Former

Clients

Blue Lotus Services has specialized in supporting non-profits and other small businesses since 2005, after leaving Corporate IT Support.

Managing projects such as global frame relay roll-outs and server and network upgrades at the corporate level and building websites from hand coding the HTML to SQL databases, to WordPress E-Commerce sites gives a broad as well as detailed view of all the facets that need to work together for a successful project. The individual components may change over time, but the overall arc stays the same.

Given financial and staffing constraints non-profits and other small businesses face, they rely on their vendor to manage every aspect of their project. If something is missed, it can be catastrophic for the organization. Likewise, it can be devastating if money is not invested wisely.

Blue Lotus Services’ clients trust us to take the very best care of them, using their time and money wisely.
