Traditionally, the role of the IT department fell under the COO, the CFO, or even y our Marketing Director. However, your technology needs have dramatically shifted over the 5-10 years. Now the CIO or chief information officer has become an equally valuable member of your team.
All businesses recognize how important technology is today. But not everyone has the resources to hire a full-time CIO – especially one with decades of experience.
So how can companies get the benefit of years of IT expertise without the C-suite level price tag? Small to medium-sized enterprises and nonprofits like yours outsource their IT needs to us. When we partner with you, we offer the experience and vision you’d expect from a full-time and dedicated CIO. But at a part-time price.
Did you know poor IT infrastructure threatens your business security and makes scaling your operation impossible? But optimizing your technology is only the first step. Will you know how to get more out of your technology once installed?
We are expertly positioned to help you...
• Reach new customers
• Improve your customer service
• Speed up order fulfillment and reporting
• Outperform your competition
When a full-time IT staff member left our client’s organization, they called us to step in. Their system was slow and infected with viruses. We cleaned it up and stabilized their overall IT infrastructure.
Then we replaced their obsolete hardware. It had crashed frequently costing them hundreds of employee hours. Old hardware also left them vulnerable to hackers and viruses. We fixed that.
As their IT strategy partners, we reviewed their office and business expenses to identify opportunities. Because we deal with all technology touch points, we negotiated tech-related contracts on their behalf.
Ultimately, we saved our client 33% on telecom expenses. We even secured them more modern and better quality services from their current vendors.
With our client’s IT infrastructure running at full capacity, we developed a strategy to track customer touch points and better manage client relationships.
We installed a state-of-the-art CRM or customer relationship management platform and trained staff to help track productivity and streamline internal operations.
Plus, we mobilized their 30+ person field team. They weren’t forced to go back to the office to review files or update records anymore.
So what does all that mean for you?
If you outsource your IT management to us, we work with you to:
• Develop a future-oriented IT strategy for sustainable business or mission growth
• Optimize and analyze your current use of technology
• Review all of your tech-related expenses including copy and print to find ways you can save
• Deal with your web or software development vendors to manage projects and keep budgets down
• Coordinate technology planning during relocations, renovations, and new construction to save you thousands in costly mistakes
Quit wading through frustrating back-and-forth emails with tech vendors. We act like a translator to help interpret techy requirements. We speak your language. But we’re also fluent in “tech-speak.” So if your project is stuck, we’ll get it going again.
Have you seen news about great technology that your system can’t handle? Or maybe you want to rid yourself of slow computers and boost employee productivity? Or perhaps you’re stuck and don’t know where to go next.

If your business lost access to its data, what would you do? How long it would take or cost to recover from such a loss? For some businesses, just one day without server access can shut down their entire operation. For good.
But there’s hope. Your business can survive and thrive through unexpected disasters, data loss, and power outages. Most businesses utilize some form of back-up solution. But most can’t recover quickly when things go wrong. And that’s what puts them out of business.
Backing up your data is only half the battle. You also need to quickly access it in an emergency. With our service, you can recover from disaster or data loss in little or no time. You’ll be up and running while your competitors are frantically calling their IT guy.
Yes, what they say is true. Our hybrid-cloud solution does back up your sensitive data – twice. But did you know you can also access it all in a moment’s notice?
Downtime costs businesses a lot and also hurts company morale. Unfortunately too many businesses overlook reboot time when searching for backup solutions. Start resting easier and get backed up with our ProActive Business Continuity service.

But we don’t just backup your data once. We back you up twice. The powerful device we install is just our first line of defense. Your device is then backed up on secure cloud storage. If the local device ever becomes compromised, your cloud-based backup is ready to instantly step in. Your business won’t skip a beat.
How do we keep ensure your business keeps running smoothly? We have a state-of-the-art image-based backup tool that takes a snapshot of your servers and workstations. This snapshot provides access to quick full-system restores. It makes it easy to recover individual files. We can also prove you’ve been backed up. This imaged-based backup tool can boot specific backups as virtual machines so you can see with your own eyes that you’re safe. We’ve got you covered.
Data can be vulnerable. It can get compromised in a Cryptovirus attack, lost in a natural disaster, or accidentally deleted. Our business continuity solution easily restores everything you have from any point in time you want. Emergency situations don’t have to stop business as usual. The local device we’ll install can easily restore files, applications, and more in minutes. The cloud backup offers a bonus level of security in the rare case your local system ever becomes jeopardized.
