Effectively managing multi-site IT should be easy
MULTI-SITE IT SOLUTIONS
When your business operates out of multiple locations, your IT systems and processes can become complicated.
This shouldn't have to be the case.
Modern technology is evolving at a rapid pace to support a workforce that is not only mobile, but operates from other locations other than head office. Having separate infrastructure and set-ups for each location or area can develop into a costly exercise that requires both time and increasing levels of IT skills to deal with complex IT Systems. On top of that, you need infrastructure that enables your different locations to communicate seamlessly to your main system or database.
Our team at Microsolve can help you identify the best IT solution for your multi-site business or practice. Our trained technical consultants are available to help you understand your existing system and identify how you can improve this through the advances of modern technology, delivering cost savings and gaining efficiency for your business.
SUPPORT FOR CENTRALISATION
In recent times many businesses have returned to a centralised IT department as the preferred way for companies to manage their technology.
Centralisation initiatives are often implemented when it becomes apparent that allowing individual departments or branch offices to run their own IT systems and services is not helping the organisation.
However, for those without a dedicated IT Department, centralisation may at first appear to be difficult or even impossible. By outsourcing this work to a consulting company with this expertise to oversee all aspects of technology deployment and management it can not only simplify administrative tasks, it can improve security, make data management easier and save the company money.
The benefits under this model can lead to better performance, economies of scale and the opportunity to overhaul working processes to embrace best practice. The overall outcome of a successful centralisation project can ultimately be a significant boost to the profile of IT within the organisation.
Research has shown aligning IT centralisation closely with the long-term business and IT strategic goals can actually reduce the cost of delivering IT services by up to 45 per cent.
Our team at Microsolve can provide a complete and comprehensive service in the planning and implementation to centralise all your IT needs.
STREAMLINE YOUR BUSINESS
One of the most useful opportunities to streamline your business operations is to have standardised procedures for all your IT systems, files and processes. You can be assured this will improve productivity and provide many substantial benefits.
Problems arise when staff use outdated forms, old applications or different versions of the same software. Often system requirements change as manufacturers release new technologies and old ones become obsolete or are no longer supported by the manufacturer.
IT problems can also arise if staff are using hand-me-down equipment or relying on infrastructure that is older or different from what is used at head office.
With the latest cloud technology all applications, forms and data on your computers and mobile devices can be stored on a cloud server and not on local devices.
Cloud technology allows everything to be kept up-to-date so all employees are able to perform the same way each time they log in. Automatic updates on all computers and devices are extremely important, particularly when file sharing between head office and remote locations or mobile devices.
Staff using the same software versions means training, data sharing and job sharing is optimised.
Cloud-based administration also effectively remotely manages the configuration, software and hardware inventory, software licencing, security and compliance settings. These changes are made in the data centre remotely.
One of the major advantages is for mobile devices having access to the same applications, files and data from virtually anywhere. Users can use their mobile devices and computers to enable them to work from anywhere on their devices to access company applications and data more securely.
Each remote workstation or mobile device has access to the same data that is located on the server. As soon as data synchronises it is available to all your users.
An added bonus to using this technology is the ability to protect company data by wiping company data stored on mobile devices when they are lost, stolen or retired from use.
