About Scott

 


Scott MauriceScott Maurice is a Founder and Managing Partner of Avail Partners, a technology consulting agency that empowers business leaders to leverage cloud economics in creative and innovative ways. With nearly two decades of experience under his belt, Scott deeply understands how technology can positively revolutionize revenue streams. As a resolutely principled leader, he insists on offering solutions over disruptive sales tactics, which for too long have been the industry standard. Scott Maurice and his team at Avail provide more than just a sales pitch to clients – they provide real clarity.

Scott and co-Founder Dan Marsh built Avail’s consulting practice methodology atop these core values of transparency and dignity. First, the agency closely analyzes the business. Then, it offers specialized insight into how to adopt or adapt technology to dominate the market. Avail expertly designs their solutions with a unique, customer-first emphasis, brokering technology services and products as needed to best fuel client success. This methodology increases revenue potential, contains costs, saves time, and inspires confidence in due diligence. Avail provides the data clients need to make fully informed decisions, and Scott is proud to do honest work that enables good companies to become great.

This leadership style, as an aboveboard straight-shooter, is intrinsic to Scott’s character. Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Scott studied math at Cornell University and began his career in finance. It was, however, culturally dissonant from how he aspired to live, and Scott soon left to enter the field of technology. In the early days of the internet, he cut his teeth as a network engineer. Before long, Scott relocated to the Pacific Northwest and established himself as a world-class IT professional.

In 2005, his reputation and expertise afforded him the opportunity to extricate himself from the typical corporate environment and work as a consultant. Eventually, a firm brought him onto the vendor side as a solutions consultant. Educating clients about how to move to the cloud with the proper products was immensely rewarding and, although his technical background as a network engineer was helpful, Scott truly excelled at connecting with customers and understanding their needs. However, the role demanded a willingness to put the sale first. Scott resolved to found a company which could finally afford him the freedom to do what is best for the client. He partnered with another like-minded entrepreneur and, in 2012, Avail Partners was born.

Today, Avail services companies at the precipice of transformational growth who are ready to maximize their effectiveness. These firms recognize the need to address technology-driven revenue issues but lack the capacity to identify the best next steps. Scott embraces the opportunity to guide visionary C-suite executives, listen to their needs and goals, and empower them to confidently take control of their own business more effectively.

When not at work, Scott Maurice is a happy husband and proud father of three who enjoys spending time with his family outdoors in beautiful Idaho. Learn more about Scott outside of the office here.

Further, aligning IT service costs to the client revenue model provides a more salient context in which to make solutions design decisions.
Cloud Rationalization

Scott Maurice  can provide a game plan for physical and virtual migration of data from one location to another.  Application interdependency, security and testing are among the considerations Avail Partners will take into account.
Proposal Management
Sourcing, receiving or responding to an RFP can be an exorbitantly time consuming process. Often, the sheer volume of information is unmanageable, and the requirements stated in the RFP are inaccurate and not optimized for the business’ needs. Avail Partners eliminates these shortcomings under Scott’s leadership by managing a proposal process designed to produce creative, optimized, accurate solutions at market competitive prices, in a short period of time and with significantly less client effort.  Traditional RFP’s simply do not generate the best results, and Avail provides an improved experience through their Market Intelligence Assessment.
