What makes UTS different?

on May 3, 2018 No comments

Indian river county Network Support Network Helpdesk Managed IT, Remote Workers Support Vero Beach,Active Directory Management,What makes UTS different from other IT Companies? I think the biggest hint is in the name of our company. Unified Technology Solutions.

When I attend networking functions, one of the things they ask us to do is to share something about our company which differentiates us from the others who offer IT support.

Almost without exception, most of the people there will say things like, we are honest, we take care of our customers, we are hard working. So even though we are all of those things, I would venture to say they might NOT be the only factors which make us a better fit for your IT needs.

What else can we offer as a reason to choose us? As I stated earlier in this post, it’s all right there in our name. We don’t just fix a broken PC or laptop, we offer full service solutions for all aspects of your business. From phone systems, to software and hardware integration, to offering our assistance with design and management of your network.   At UTS, we realize that running a successful business, managing staff and keeping up with technology can be quite a lot to juggle every day. It’s our goal to help lighten the load.

Our people are well trained and experienced. Sometimes all the training in the world doesn’t help when you have an intermittent problem. Experience and the ability to think things through based upon that experience is a skill set not all of our competitors have.

At UTS we are known to anticipate situations which could cause problems down the line and work with you to implement changes which keep those issues from occurring.

We have a number of support levels available to our clients and we understand that you need things running, you can’t wait for a couple of days. Our response time is within minutes of hours, not days or weeks.

UTS is truly a family owned business. I know that phrase, like a family, is overused, but in our case, we are family. Any staff we bring on to work with us is treated like family.

Anyone can take a few courses online or at a Junior College and become certified to work on computers. We have been trained and we have years of experience, plus we are constantly learning in order to keep up with advances in hardware and software.

UTS is in this for the long run. We have a local office here in Vero Beach, support services for all types of budgets, and a responsive, educated staff. We are going to be here when you call.

Working Smarter Not Harder

young business man work in office on computer

American culture has for years embraced the notion that the more hours you work, the more effective you are. There are studies out now which dispute that fact. According to Lou Babuaata of Zen Habits, prioritizing your Most important tasks. Then get those done first thing in the morning and move on with all of the other work that pops into your life during the day. This is the best way to be productive. Any number of hours we work in a week that surpasses 55 hours is mostly a waste of our time. The longer we work, the less productive we become. We can now say that’s a fact.

To answer the question, yes, we do perform Managed IT services.

At UTS we help businesses manage their phone and computing needs by helping them to first design the proper size and style of network their business needs today, and a system that will be easy to add on to as their computing and phone needs grow.

AT UTS we can offer remote support so that your downtime is minimal for most problems, and we offer monitoring services in order to keep problems from happening as much as possible.

At Unified Technology Solutions we also keep up to date on what the latest risks are to your systems and we will install and monitor   security software for your company. Along with that we work with you to ensure your backup procedures are in place and working properly, just in case a breach should occur.

Advantage of VoIP Versus Land Lines

on February 15, 2018 No comments

VoIp, tablet and smart phone integration vero beach, tablet and smart phone integration Ft Pierce, tablet and smart phone phone integration, VOIP, unified Technology solutions

Unified Technology Solutions installs and maintains VoIP phone systems for companies from Indian River County to surrounding counties. VoIP gives companies the flexibility to have multiple lines without the hassle of installing physical phone lines. We have long been proponents of this type of phone system vs the standard land lines from that big company who shall not be named.

What are some reasons why VoIp have become a popular alternative to old fashioned PBX and Landlines?

“Why Choose VoIP Phone Service for Your Business?

Many VoIP services have the same quality and reliability you expect from your phone company, but they cost less and offer more features. VoIP services often have better international rates and can be used on cordless phones, computers, smartphones or tablets so you can reach clients and coworkers. Plus, you don’t have to worry about dropped calls. VoIP services give you a lot of flexibility: You can direct your voicemails to your email, use a mobile app that lets you use your smartphone like your office phone, plus you can forward calls from your office to any device, including a desktop or laptop computer…..”

“VoIP vs. PBX Systems

PBX, private branch exchange, systems are traditional business phone systems. These analog exchanges consist of physical equipment hosted in your office that connects your internal lines to external phone lines. PBX is a reliable phone system for your office, but the costs are much greater than a VoIP phone service’s costs. VoIP services use software and are typically hosted in the cloud, so there is usually no hardware to purchase, install or maintain.

While VoIP systems are typically just as reliable as PBX systems, they rely on your internet connection. That means if you ever have a power outage that leaves you without internet, your phone lines will also be down. However, you can still access your VoIP account from a mobile device, if it has a data plan.

Which VoIP Phone System is Best for You?

When choosing the best VoIP service for your business, consider your budget, the size and type of your company, and what your calling needs are. Maybe add-on features will be the determining factor in your decision. For example, some VoIP services provide video conferencing in addition to phone capabilities, which is useful if you have multiple offices or remote employees.”  From Business.com   BY CHAD BROOKS

Should you have a case where your company is growing by leaps and bounds, but you don’t have office space for all the new hires, then a VoIp system will be invaluable. You can set the system up so that employees working remotely will appear to be sitting right there in your office building. In the case where you have plenty of room, but the nature of your work keeps certain people out in the field most of the time, then the ability to interface with tablets and smart phones is one your company will need.

Still not sure you want to cut the cord? Give us a call and we can have a chat about the right option for your business.

The Most Powerful Computing Device

on February 10, 2018 No comments

computer stories, computer newsAs a parent, watching an infant as he or she begins this journey of life, can be an amazing experience. If each day we take time to really watch them. To watch them watching us, trying to mimic the movements we make as we talk to them, trying to communicate with us without yet being able to form words. It’s an exercise in sheer wonder and sometimes in utter frustration. After a time, you learn which cry means hungry, or sad, or angry, and as the child grows, they experiment with how they can make you react to their needs. It’s a great dance.
