With the growing COVID-19 outbreak, businesses need to adapt to the ever-changing landscape. One of the ways companies can ensure they can remain operational is by migrating their operations to the cloud. The cloud offers the flexibility for employees to work remotely, which will enable business continuity. Aside from enabling employees to work remotely, the cloud provides numerous benefits for businesses.

Scalability

With on-premise servers, if your company needs to expand its operations, you’ll need to purchase additional hardware, which can take a long time. When you host your services in the cloud, expanding your operations is quick and efficient, allowing you and your employees to focus on business operations. Additionally, scaling your servers back can be accomplished quickly as well.

Reduced IT Costs

Since hosting operations in the cloud is a much easier process to manage, your business will be able to reduce the size of its IT department. Additionally, upgrading or expanding your servers is cheaper than buying new hardware, and you’ll no longer need to make large up-front purchases for the equipment. And, since you won’t be powering a server room, your energy consumption will likely decrease, thus making your monthly power bill less costly.

Business Continuity

Since all of your data will be stored in the cloud, no matter what happens to your physical place of business, you will have access to your data. Having access to your data increases your business’s ability to maintain operations during a disaster. Additionally, the cloud gives your employees the option of working from home during the disaster. This mobility is a massive benefit for your business, especially during times of prolonged shutdowns, as all of us are currently experiencing.

The cloud offers numerous benefits for businesses, from reduced monthly costs to increased mobility. At i-NETT, we support all levels of cloud services and solutions, and we will work with your company to find the optimal solution.

Security Camera Systems to Protect Your Business

Ensuring that your company, hardware, and employees are safe is a critical endeavor for business owners. One of the best ways to accomplish that is by installing security cameras in and around your business. Cameras will deter theft and crime, monitor employee interactions and activity, and lower insurance costs. At i-NETT, we understand the importance of keeping your business protected; that’s why we have a national network of contractors ready to install state of the art security cameras in your business.

There are many benefits to security cameras. Here are the top three.

Lower Insurance Costs

With the ability to monitor the activity of employees and customers within your business, you will be aware of any accidents that may occur. If an accident does occur, you will have video evidence of the incident, which will make it easy to determine who was at fault. The ability to view the activity inside of your business will drastically reduce any scams. Additionally, insurance companies will often give your business a discount with the presence of security cameras in and around your business.

Reduce Theft and Criminal Activity

The presence of security cameras will reduce theft and criminal activity around your business. Criminals will bypass your business if they notice they are under surveillance, and if they go through with the act, you will have video evidence to show the authorities. Additionally, it will be easier to recoup costs if you know exactly what was stolen.

Another reason to have security cameras is to deter employee theft. While most business owners don’t want to believe that their employees may steal, it does happen. Being able to monitor your employee activity will ensure that no theft occurs.

Safer Workplace

With the presence of security cameras in and outside of your business, including the parking lot, you will know what is happening at all times around your business. This will help your employees feel safer, especially if they are leaving work at night. The cameras will also deter any vehicle break-ins from occurring. If your employees know that you are doing everything you can to ensure their safety, they will feel more appreciated.

If you would like to take the necessary precautions of ensuring the safety of your employees and business assets, contact the experts at i-NETT. We are highly experienced and will provide you with the security cameras that best fit your business needs and budget.

LOS ANGELES/VENTURA/ORANGE COUNTY/SAN DIEGO – i-NETT a leading managed technology services provider (MTSP), is helping small to midsized businesses (SMBs) to take advantage of dramatically increased capabilities in surveillance cameras. As security, both online and offline, has become a growing concern for many small business owners, i-NETT is educating business owners on how recent advances in facial recognition and surveillance camera capabilities can protect their organizations from threats, while simultaneously enhancing customer experience.

“These aren’t your dad’s old security cameras,” stated Dale Stein, Co-Founder of i-NETT. “Security cameras have now become intelligent. Some of the most common problems with security in the past were the result of low-light environments with blurry, lowresolution cameras. When a breach would occur, authorities would have to review recordings or employ staff to monitor them live. However, the recent changes in our industry have taken security to a whole new level. Many SMBs have started to take advantage of extremely sharp, 4K resolution and when paired with facial recognition software, business owners can custom tailor their client experience. This is huge for all sorts of industries, especially organizations that are highlytrafficked or security is an extremely high priority,” Stein added.

As businesses grow and expand, they end up needing new positions filled by qualified individuals. Many small to mid-sized companies will know how this can translate into growing pains, especially with a specific job. A Chief Information Officer (CIO) is vital for businesses to have, as they’re responsible for applying appropriate technology to help the company. However, not every business can afford to start trying to hire people for the job. Luckily, there is a way to have that critical role filled while staying within budget. Get a Virtual Chief Information Officer (vCIO) with i-NETT.

A vCIO is a consultant, a third-party, or a business that offers a service to fulfill the role. They typically work remotely, providing support, and covering the duties and responsibilities of a conventional CIO, all at a fraction of the cost.

Now SMBs can continue their growth, all without feeling the growing pains usually associated with such expansion.

Don’t let your budget hold your business back from growing. Contact i-NETT today and get everything a vCIO has to offer your business.
