Your business is bound to have unique qualities and offerings that make it stand out from the crowd. But one thing that all organizations, no matter how big or small, rely on is a sound technology infrastructure and the right IT solutions to support long-term growth.
In 2013, Dell and Intel published the results of a study of approximately 1,000 small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and found that technology plays a huge role in their success. In fact, 77 percent of respondents said that technology is the key to their growth. On top of that, 69 percent of startups and SMBs said that some form of technology supports daily operations within their business.
Without having the right IT solutions to support your work processes, you wouldn’t be able to carry out basic functions within your company. Here are three IT solutions that every organization could benefit from.
Hosted Phone Systems
The rise of hosted phone systems has transformed the business communications landscape. Unlike traditional landline telephone service, hosted phone systems are managed and maintained by an outsourced phone provider who handles everything for you. From initial installation to ongoing maintenance and upgrades, your phone needs are always taken care of. Because hosted phone systems exist off-premise and use VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technology, you can experience increased security, flexibility, and cost-efficiency.
Remote Desktop Applications
Having the right IT solutions can allow your workforce to make better use of remote capabilities and mobility. Imagine having access to your work computer, and all the critical data stored on it, even when you’re out of the office. With the cloud, you can have remote access whenever you want – giving you a competitive edge when it comes to running and improving your business. Remote desktop applications allow you to stay connected even when you’re not physically at your desk. By being able to view or modify your documents and files from your computer, smartphone, or tablet, you can get more done while you’re on the go.
Proactive Support & Maintenance
What’s the difference between reactive and proactive support? Reactive IT support means your technology only gets fixed after something goes wrong. With proactive support, you have a team of technical specialists constantly monitoring your network for potential issues that could disrupt your business. This means that your network has a drastically better chance of staying healthy and free of security risks, cyber attacks, and glitches. With managed services, you gain unlimited IT solutions and support that boosts your success. By outsourcing your IT, you not only free up time to focus on the core of your mission, but you also gain valuable access to technology experts who always have your best interests at heart.
