Particularly in California, earthquakes are an ever-present threat. We put together thoughtful plans that satisfy all three of the necessary components of a viable disaster recovery plan: notification/activation, recovery (getting operational again via a back-up system) and reconstitution (restoring functionality to your original system). We will propose a back-up system for you. Because it is important that back-up systems are at a different physical location than your own, you can also outsource the location and maintenance of the back-up system to us and to our partners nationwide.
Effective systems and networks are thoughtfully and carefully planned. Our network system architects do a careful “Needs Assessment” and site inspection before designing the system that best meets your needs. We will also get a sense of your budget and growth expectations and build a system that not only meets initial needs but is scalable as your needs change and your organization grows. So that you can fully visualize the solution we recommend, we will provide detailed but easy-to-understand schematics describing very component of the system. Finally, we are completely vendor-agnostic when it comes to the systems components that we recommend, but instead focus on Best Of Breed solutions to provide you with the most robust and efficient infrastructure possible.

AdviseTech will, after a review of your systems and discussions with you on current risk, make those recommendations on all relative areas of concern to our clients.
We can recommend and install comprehensive IT solutions to streamline your entire operations. Not just PCs, servers and networks, these solutions might encompass new order-entry systems, new accounting systems, or new customer service systems. They may be custom-developed or use software from industry leaders like SAP and IBM. If you have an existing enterprise-wide system in place that simply isn’t working for you, we can identify where bottlenecks and inefficiencies lie.
Increasingly, faxes, printers, scanners and copiers are themselves integrated into one unit and are an integral part of an office network. We can recommend and procure solutions in the digital imaging arena, as well as recommend different purchase versus lease alternatives.
Your information technology hardware and software represents a significant investment well worth protecting. To track this investment, we will perform and update exhaustive inventories of all your equipment down to the serial-number level, Not only does this help your accounting department calculate the cost and depreciation on your assets, but it also enables you to be more aware to possible theft and to prepare accurate insurance claims in the event of a disaster such as earthquake or fire. Finally, we will also help you dispose of IT assets in the most financially and environmentally-friendly way when they have reached the end of their productive life cycle.
Having many years of experience in repairing, maintaining and upgrading network and internet components and services, we are well positioned to bring this expertise to bear for you. This includes work on Network Interface Cards, Switches, Routers, WiFi and Internet Providers, from small to large scale. This also includes our strong attention to user security in terms of fighting the rampant malware that everyone eventually encounters, and how that risk can be lessened through implementing best practices of acceptable use, and web services designed to work in the background. As the network is the backbone of all your digital communications it demands a focus on achieving the most efficient, reliable and cost-effective infrastructure. To accomplish these goals, let us review your systems and make our best recommendations for your consideration.
For those of your users who frequently work from home or the road, we can set up cost-effective remote connectivity solutions to allow them to securely access your network.
We will work with the PCs or laptops in question to properly “vet” them and make sure there are no security threats. We will also recommend the most cost-effective, high-speed connectivity solutions (e.g., modems and cable, DSL, frame-relay connections) for home and mobile use. We can also contract the required telecom services for you and provide you with a consolidated bill for the combined services.
The “Virtual IT Department” is our solution for companies who do not wish to invest in an in-house IT department but want the benefit of a dedicated and consistent staff they can call on when needed. Whether dedicated to you or shared amongst a few companies, our technicians will be available on-call on a “retainer” basis to help with any problems you may experience with the hardware and software at your site.
Like our Network Security Scanning & Analysis service, this service enables you to run a LAN or WAN in one office or multiple locations without hiring a dedicated and highly-paid technical staff. Using state-of-the-art remote network management tools, we can administer and monitor your network. We can set up and disable user accounts and maintain the appropriate levels of security access for all users on the network. While many of these operations can be conducted remotely, we will dispatch technicians to your site to complete some routine maintenance procedures as well as to resolve problems that cannot be resolved remotely.
Perhaps your company is growing and you are relocating to a new facility, opening a new office or simply hiring more staff. We provide services that make moves of existing equipment or installation of additional equipment as seamless and painless as possible. We will often suggest performing these services after hours or on weekends to pose the minimal disruption to your staff and normal operations. Our services extend from moves and additions of PCs to moves of entire server/mainframe rooms or of complete offices and networks.
