We would love to sit down with you and your team to find out more about the great things your organization is doing and how we can help you get to the next step utilizing technology to ease communication and information.
If we go with managed services, will it really be a better option than hiring internally?
Often times, yes. We put systems and staff in place to keep you running 24/7/365. You don’t have to pay for vacation/holiday down time, benefits, or internal technical staff training. But we may not always be the cheaper option. We will work together to find the best solution for you, even if it does not include us.
Is the cloud really safe?
Leveraging cloud infrastructure allows you to use the fastest, most reliable data centers in the world without the capital cost. It is truly an incredible platform to house your data. But, we do recommend working with a professional to ensure your data is safe and secure.
We are people with passion for helping other businesses work as effectively and efficiently as they can. We want your company to spend time doing work, and not spending time on technical issues. We strive to make technology a sharpened and precise tool that you can count on to continue to move your company forward.
We learn about your organization. We want to know what is important to you and the level of communication you want us to have to your and the other members of your team and all reports down the line. We like to be the safe, third party you and your employees can talk to so we can find the best solutions to save time and money.
We also work with a network of other companies to provide many services such as phone systems, accounting software, copiers, telephone and internet bill reviews.
We work by project, hourly rate, and per device. We stay competitively priced while also using experienced techs. This allows us to get more work down in less hours, which in turn keeps customers happy and allows us to work on more projects.
The Cloud is just like your local computer network, except the data is stored in a data center. This means that the data is much more physically secure than most businesses, availability is higher because of redundant internet connections and machines.
What makes availability in the cloud is typically using a web browser to access the data.
Often, content in the cloud is more secure than on premise systems. Security, no matter where, needs to be setup properly. The way to compromise the data may differ, but security knowledge is the name of the game. Often, the cost to have an in-house security officer is too great for an organization. This allows good IT and trained staff to be able to setup pre-defined security settings put forth by the cloud provider.
Our main contact at an organization is typically the CEO, COO, CFO, or CIO. Depending on your organizations structure, this will vary. The important thing is the ability to have private conversations as necessary. We will be working with sensitive data and our top level contact should be one that can have these conversations.
For projects and other day-to-day work. We can provide only an update report as to not impede on your time.
YES! We can assist you in finding the right backup strategy for your organization to not only minimize downtime, but also to keep your business running. Many companies have had to close their doors because of losing just 2 weeks of data. All records of receivables, payables, GL, payroll, sales calls, project management, are gone.
The thought of that just hits us in the pits of our stomach. We do not want that to happen to you. We will find a solution to keep you running no matter what happens.
At times yes. There are times when compatibility prevents upgrades. Depending on the cost of the upgrade, we can continue to work on it, or attempt to find a better solution.
For most standard servers and workstations. We like to work on machines no older than 7 years and keep with the last 2-3 OS revisions. While we are happy to work on older devices, they are often more expensive to maintain than to upgrade. We want to look at that total cost with you so you can make the best decision for your company.
We try to work with all sizes of organizations and locations. There are times though that your specific requirements maybe outside our scope, or we are not the fit. In that case, we will refer you to another firm to better serve you.
