Novatech, in partnership with Microsoft, has launched a new solution for small and start-up businesses, a pay-as-you-go "Business in a Box."
The "Business in a Box" solution combines hardware, software and support, all bundled together with the aim of reducing installation, security and support costs.
According to Novatech "The most common technology problems young companies face are not only the initial outlay required to buy a scalable and efficient network, but also the cost of professional set-up, maintenance and support. They also need simple and secure remote access to their data and documents anytime, anywhere, safe in the knowledge that it will backed up automatically and regularly."
The 'Box' contains a basic server with Microsoft Small Business Server 2011 Essentials, their chosen number of laptops or desktops with Windows 7 Professional and Microsoft Office 2010 Professional pre-installed, a printer and a comprehensive range of warranties. In addition, they also get free installation and set-up by one of Novatech's trusted partners and free tech support for life.
- Costs spread with a leased flexible payment that costs less than a cup of coffee per day per user
- Automatic computer backups of the server, laptops and desktops
- Simplified recovery of data should anything go wrong
- Remote secure access to your data from anywhere in the World
- A single administration console
"We always get the same three messages from companies no matter what their size," says Novatech's Sales & Marketing Director Dave Wybourne. "It has to be simple to set up and install. It has to be cost-effective and any problems have to be sorted quickly and without fuss. Ultimately they all want the peace of mind that it is going to work unobtrusively so that they can get on with their jobs, and that there's a friendly expert on hand when trouble does occur."
Wybourne explained that the Business in a box is a, "simple package of great hardware, at a realistic price and quality local tech support. It gives you all the technology you need to get your business moving, to stay secure and effective, for less than the cost of a cup of coffee a day; which is probably the most crucial part."
