Business Networking

Picture

Business networking means leveraging your business and personal connections to bring your company a new regular supply of business, something every company new or old needs in order to stay current. In today’s world, part of this business networking is going to involve some form of technology. In general, businesses today are going to use at least one form of technology in their operations.

These days, there are three key components of business networking that almost all businesses, small to large, use or need. The first of these is a software product made by Microsoft. This usually is either the Windows operating system in its many forms or the Office application suite from Microsoft. The second key component of business networking is a hardware server, whether it is on site or off site of the business location. The third key group of business networking is related to computer networking and peripheral devices. Many companies will set up these complex systems hoping they will run along smoothly until replaced with something better. This type of action rarely works in today’s world. A sustained maintenance approach needs to be taken in dealing with these various systems.

HCP Computers Inc. operates primarily out of the Greater Bangor, Maine area. HCP’s team of highly-qualified IT technicians is here today to help your company achieve its goals through better business networking. HCP Computers Inc. will help your company achieve this better business networking in three distinct ways.

First, there is our offering of Server Support Agreements. Servers require routine and scheduled maintenance of both software and hardware to continue running smoothly. This is what the Server Support Agreement is all about, see below for more details.

HCP offers business networking services, which include, but are not limited to, server implementation, physical network implementation, firewall implementation, backup services, disaster recovery, and spam email filtering. This includes the setup, maintenance, and troubleshooting of these types of systems.

Network Services

HCP Computers Inc., out of the Greater Bangor, Maine area, offers the following Network Services to our customers. Note that this list isn’t exhaustive and if you have a problem that needs to be solved, we’ll see what we can do for you.

Server Implementation

In today’s marketplace, there are quite a few vendors that sell hardware servers. There are even places where one can go to build your own DIY servers. With these vendors, there is an almost endless supply of configurations a customer can make for a server. Here at HCP Computers Inc., we’ll take the guesswork out of figuring out what server fits your business and needs. HCP will handle the server design or specification of the server that will work perfectly for the goals you have in mind while sticking to the budget you need. HCP doesn’t just stop at the server specs; we also fully handle the installation and configuration of the server once it is on site.

Is your network able to handle all the traffic your company generates? Are there computers in your organization that require network access but you have no idea on the best solution? Do you have some newer hardware from a different vendor that you think you probably were oversold on? These are a few of many questions HCP Computers Inc. will be asking about your company’s physical network. We evaluate what you currently have in place and whether this meets or exceeds what you actually need. If your company needs more networking capability, we then will efficiently and effectively design a network that fits for you. HCP’s teams of very knowledgeable IT technicians will then install and configure this network design for your company. Here at HCP Computers Inc., we don’t just stop at designing and implementing a network for your company; we also offer the service of monitoring your network remotely and completing scheduled preventative maintenance, so you can rest assured that downtime will be as minimal as possible.

Firewall Implementation

What’s a firewall anyways? It’s a hardware device that is best described as an armored door between the outside world, i.e. the Internet, and your company’s internal network and devices. HCP will evaluate your current firewall configuration, if applicable, and then evaluate what services or configuration will actually protect your organization’s internal network and devices. A design including which firewall from which vendor will work for your company will then be drawn up. Finally, HCP will take care of the heavy lifting work of correctly configuring the firewall device that works for your company.

Disaster Recovery

In today’s age, with computers needing to be on demand most of the time, it’s only a matter of time before a disaster can and will happen. This could be a disaster as simple as a hardware device in your server failing, or could be as extensive as a natural disaster that destroys your IT infrastructure completely. In order for your business to get back on its feet effectively and as quickly as possible, you need to have a disaster-recovery plan implemented. Here at HCP Computers Inc., we will take care of this frequently-overlooked piece of IT operations for your company. We will evaluate, design, and test a disaster-recovery plan that takes care of your company in the range of scenarios stated above. HCP Computers Inc. will then implement this disaster-recovery plan to make sure your company’s IT operations continue to run no matter the tough times thrown at it.

Backup Services

This is the most commonly overlooked action that can eliminate many problems when dealing with IT infrastructure these days. Most companies are good about creating a backup solution that works for them, but aren’t so good about making sure the backups are actually work. HCP Computers Inc. offers backup services that will take care of this for your company. We offer incremental and full backups of any and all systems deemed necessary to have a backup in place. We set up a schedule for backups that works in line with how your company operates and which would be most beneficial to your company.
