Is your computer system technology stuck in time?

Computer Technology changes over time and eventually you will need to modernize, or bring your systems up to current specifications.  Is that old server and software that has served you well for many years starting to show signs of its age?  Is your system no longer capable of running the now current version of the software you need to run your business?   We can help with a carefully planned and implemented IT Modernization project.  There is much more to migrating to new servers, workstations, and software than simply replacing machines.  Data has to be transferred, preserved, and updated. End users need to be trained on new software and procedures, and in the end, everyone needs to see the change as an improvement.

We have many years of experience successfully installing networks for small and medium sized business all over Central Indiana.

Typically a network install is the beginning of a long relationship with our customers.  We take the care and time to plan and do the job right.  We do not compromise quality on something that will wind up being so critical to the running of your business.  We stick to well established wiring and installation standards and follow best practices, which will make your network reliable and easy to expand and maintain in the future.  The last thing we want is for a poorly installed network to come back and haunt us.

We will design and build a reliable network that meets your current and future needs.

When we build a network, we look to the future and design in the capability of expanding your network to double or triple its size.  We build redundancy in all our cable runs so that if a cable fails, or gets damaged, we can quickly work around the problem while it is being fixed.  We will build your network with growth in mind.  We know what works well for our other customers and you will benefit from that knowledge and experience.

The technology we deal with is not just limited to computers and networks.

We understand how to integrate different technoloies so that they work together.  We are versitle enough to work with practically any technology and interface multiple technologies together for an overall solution.

Any kind of technology can be intimidating.  We are also capable and have experience installing medical equipment, phone systems, security systems, cash register point of sale systems, and sometimes become involved in the technical design of customer products.  We can work with your vendors and their technical specifications to make sure their products will interface with your computing environment and make any adjustments necessary.

We are used to reading manuals, working with technical specifications, and applying technology to any type of business application.  Bring us in and let us look at what you are trying to accomplish.  We can help with the research and evaluation of the next piece of equipment you are wanting to buy.  We may know of another customer who is facing the same challenge or using the same technology.

We are not afraid to take on new technology.

All technology starts out as new technology.  Every project and solution is unique.  We are not afraid to try something that nobody has done before in order to give your business a competitive edge.  We are constantly absorbing new technology as technology itself evolves with time.  There are several companies around Indianapolis where we installed their first personal computers.  We installed the first PC Network in Indianapolis.  We were pioneers when the Internet first started by setting up one of the first Internet Service Providers in the area.  Doctor and Dentist offices are constantly having us integrate new medical equipment with their practice management software and servers. Just because something has not been done before, does not mean that it can't be done and we can't do it.  We are also available to help you evaluate new technology to see if it is necessary and will actually improve your business.  We can help in the decision and evaluational process to help decide which new technology to take on.

Your network may not be limited to just one location.

We have experience installing Point to Point networks on Dedicated T-1 Lines or Virtual Private Networks.  We can bridge multiple locations and make them all work together.  We understand how to set up routers and efficiently direct traffic to where it needs to go.  We know how to set up Terminal Services and make your applications accessible over the Internet.  Your network may no longer be Local at all.  We can help you expand beyond your single location.

Once a server is set up and installed on your network, it must be secured.

Server Security, especially for servers accessible through the Internet must have the proper security to keep them from getting hacked.  We take server security very seriously because we realize just how dangerous the world is.  It is a given fact that there will be attempts to hack into your server every hour of every day.  This is just the nature of the Internet and a properly setup and secure server will be prepared and protected from such attacks.  We utilize firewall security, user and file security, as well as intrusion detection to keep your servers secure.  Servers, and the software they run, must be constantly maintained and updated to protect against the latest security threat.  Server Security is something that should be set up and maintained by competent professionals like us.  We can set up your server and monitor and maintain it remotely keeping an ever watchful eye for problems.

Give us a call so we may meet and discuss your needs. We will give you a fast and honest answer whether or not we can help.

We do not pretend to do anything and everything.  The things we know best are computers and computer networking.  Chances are that your problem is not all that unique and we have worked on something similar before.  Most of the time our the solutions we recommend are based on real life experiences or things we know we can handle.  Just as importantly, we are also honest enough to let you know our limitations and avoid the disaster of taking on something we are not ready to handle.
