July 17th, 2014 / Blogs

When your IT needs have outgrown your equipment and the staff to manage it, it’s time to consider hosted services. GroupOne’s hosted services include application hosting, hosted exchange, hosted SharePointe for collaboration, small business server hosting, and private cloud administration. We deal with the IT management, maintenance, and equipment that keeps your business running so you can deal with running your business.

With hosted services, you can take advantage of Microsoft and other technologies that take your business operations to a more efficient and competitive level, improving security, communication, and computing power in the most cost-effective way.

Network World’s Zeus Kerravala cites several solid reasons for using hosted solutions, including centralized management and administration of IT systems and services, fast extension of services to remote employees, implementation of BYOD (bring your own device), and the cost-effectiveness of subscription services.

  • Implementation and management tasks are greatly reduced with hosted solutions, saving significant labor hours and improving accuracy and quality.

  • With mobile and remote employees in multiple locations, hosted solutions provide a more unified and consistent user and management computing environment with faster access at lower costs than on-site equipment.

  • The increasing use of personal devices at work has made the IT responsibility of controlling equipment and software extremely challenging. Moving communications to the cloud with hosted services creates greater flexibility for both IT management and user productivity.

  • The cost benefits of using hosted services include no upfront capital outlay, known monthly costs for services, and more efficient use of IT staffing.
