What’s a server you ask? In this instance, we are addressing a fixed server, not a cloud based server. A server is a computer that has been specifically designed to process data. It has powerful processing speeds,large data storage and software which will manage your network of computers. A server is designed to be stationary and it’s built to be a workhorse of processing power. It has the power to keep everyone on your network sharing and collaborating. Instead of having to manually share files each end-user can be assigned the ability to access one centralized database and that in turn will allow each of you to view and update the information in real-time quickly and efficiently. Servers are also used to run operations such as email, your office printers, calendar applications, sales leads and tracking, customer databases and other collaborative software packages.
You might ask us why we named our company Unified Technology Solutions? Why didn’t we simply call your company “We Repair and Install Computers?” We called ourselves Unified Technology Solutions for the simple reason that we don’t just install computers, or repair computer problems, we help you manage all your IT challenges, and get the most out of your technology budget.
Running a business is all encompassing. When it was just you and a couple of others, keeping up with IT demands was simple. Now you have 30 employees, a layer of management and managing your IT needs is interfering with your mission.
Growing a business or non-profit adds new layers of computer and data management skills. The prospect of losing valuable information because backups are not performed is something you will need to plan for. Disruption of services due to a network problem can be very costly. Hiring just one person to try and cover a multiple number of devices can work for a while, but even if you do have an IT person, there are times when one person simply cannot do it all.
Whatever cost savings you think you get by attempting to manage your IT needs in house can quickly disappear with one bad outage. It’s still early in the year, and planning to have managed IT services through Unified Technology Solutions is something we would like for you to consider.
We also want to let you know that at Unified Technology Solutions not only can we maintain and repair your computers, we can also help to integrate your Phone service. There are some state of the art VOIP solutions for companies which save you money, but also give you tremendous flexibility.
