All of these services are delivered by a committed and experience engineering and technical support team headquartered in Louisville, KY.
One of the big shifts in the Small Office space is the phase-out of standing Windows servers and individual Microsoft Office [Excel, Word, Access, Sharepoint] licences as we have done in the past. This is being replaced with "Cloud Services" from Microsoft. In other words, the small business no longer has a licensed server and individual licenses on each machine, but rather, a "hosted" server at Microsoft where all employees connect to access files, as well as access their Microsoft Office apps. Obviously, going to such a solution requires good, reliable Internet connection. This is great for many reasons, and can be very cost effective, one of the critical elements that can not be overlooked is that you will need an Internet connection with decent upload speeds. Oftentimes a cable modem or DSL simply do not cut it on a day to day basis. Fiber can oftentimes be expensive too. There is a better way though: a combination of Business Wireless running at 5M x 5M or 10M x 10M, backed up with a cable modem, and everything should flow smoothly.
The cost of such a set up makes sense when comparing the ongoing hassle of failing hardware, hiring IT techs to fix broken systems, and up-front capital outlays to get it all up and running.
BluegrassNet and our integration team, BluegrassNet Development, team up to make sure that all the components are working together: Internet connections, firewalls, remote access considerations, licensing, movement of data and apps to the Microsoft cloud, etc. We have successfully integrated several of such deployments and can help you too.
