At The Launch Pad, our primary focus is on being an innovative technology solution provider for small and medium sized businesses. Our team focuses on developing personal relationships with our clients, learning about their business needs and how best to apply technology to solve problems, create new solutions, and increase your bottom line. Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop for our clients and offer comprehensive services, best practice consultation, and a team dedicated to becoming a key partner in your business technology planning.
Managed Technology Services
Think of The Launch Pad as an extension of your business. The managed service model emphasizes immediate problem remediation though proactive monitoring on all key functions on the network and data gathering for real technology planning. True “managed services” also involve standardized service processes, specified service level agreements and help desk support, all for a fixed monthly fee. While the assumption may be a service like this is costly or out of a small businesses budget, in fact outsourcing IT with managed services can save SMBs 20 – 40% in technology costs, while reducing downtime and providing a network that is standardized and is operated properly by trained IT professionals. The Launch Pad allows business owners to stay focused on their core business rather than worrying about their technology infrastructure.
The Launch Pad offers data protection and business continuity with our complete managed data backup & protection solution. Have you ever lost an hour of work on your computer? Now imagine losing days or weeks worth of work. Even worse, picture your client database, financial records or all the files that keep your business running vanishing in an instant. The RevITup™ BDR Data Backup and Disaster Recovery Series offers real-time onsite backups integrated with an offsite data backup service. The BDR captures all changes to the initial server disk image in 15-minute increments allowing end-users never to lose more than 15 minutes of work. Should any of your servers fail, our server virtualization technology embedded in the BDR device allows your servers and applications to be restored and rebooted within a few hours – rather than days.
Rounding out our managed services solution offering is our RevITup WebSentry™. This product has the ability to help business owners gain visibility and control over web content, web applications and web threats. Corporate Internet use that is not business-related goes on an average of 1 to 2 hours per day. While this is extremely costly in terms of productivity it also poses a huge security threat to your business. The WebSentry™ will grant access to internet traffic reports that show how users, applications and threats are impacting your network performance. These reports can help you stay on top of your internet security, identify problem areas and review bandwidth consumption.
Integrating Green Technology
At The Launch Pad, we believe that applying sound environmental practices to IT just makes sense for business. Green IT means incorporating green business technologies and practices, not only help the environment, but also save money and improve business operations. That’s why we introduced the RevITup VirtualGreen Office™ Series. With the RevITup VirtualGreen Office™, the desktop follows the user. Because desktop applications are delivered by the server, users enjoy remote access to email, calendars, and business applications with no downtime. “The Launch Pad’s VirtualGreen Office™ allows us to leverage the most cost effective technology that is centrally managed securely in a data center.
