Other responsibilities may include establishing and documenting standards and procedures, maintaining inventory of technological devices, working with outside vendors, and maintaining backup systems. The job requires flexibility to coordinate with other schedules and may require work after normal business hours. Depending on the layout of the business, significant physical activity is also potentially necessary.
