Business Networking


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

These days, there are three key components of business networking. 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.

The second key component of business networking is a hardware server, whether on-site or off-site. 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 to help your company achieve its goals through better business networking. HCP 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 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. HCP also offers Microsoft Support to better help with your business networking.

HCP is a Microsoft partner providing support for and reselling Microsoft products. Each of HCP’s technicians has an average of 15 years of experience dealing with Microsoft products. You can rest assured that if you have a problem to solve involving a Microsoft product, HCP will be there for you.

Network Services

In the Greater Bangor, Maine area, HCP Computers Inc. offers the following Network Services to our customers. Note that this list isn’t exhaustive. If you have a problem that needs to be solved, contact us, and 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 servers. With these vendors, there is an almost endless supply of configurations a customer can make for a server.

At HCP Computers Inc., we 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 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 about 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 will efficiently and effectively design a network that fits you.

HCP’s team of knowledgeable IT technicians will 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. You can rest assured that downtime will be as minimal as possible.

Firewall Implementation


What’s a firewall anyway? It’s a hardware device 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, then evaluate what services or configuration will actually protect your organization’s internal network and devices.

A design including which vendor’s firewall will work for your company can then be drawn up. Finally, HCP will take care of the heavy lifting work. We will correctly configure 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 happens. This could be a disaster as simple as a hardware device in your server failing. It could be as extensive as a natural disaster that wrecks your IT infrastructure.

For your business to get back on its feet as quickly as possible, you need to have a disaster-recovery plan implemented. HCP Computers Inc. 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 ensure your IT operations 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. Most companies are good about creating a backup solution that works for them. However, they aren’t so good about making sure the backups are actually work.

HCP Computers Inc. offers backup services that will take care of this. We offer incremental and full backups of any systems deemed necessary to have a backup in place. We set up a schedule for backups in line with how your company operates to benefit you. We then take care of the sometimes-tedious job of making sure these backups will work when needed most.

Email Filtering Services


Nowadays, email has become an integral part of most businesses. Users rely on email daily to communicate with or receive information important to them. Sometimes these communications are not always necessary or wanted.

These emails are what are referred to as SPAM emails. To effectively use email systems without sorting through thousands of junk emails each day, you need an email filtering solution. HCP Computers Inc. has a powerful solution that is effectively filtering 98% of junk mail.

We use this system to provide our email filtering service. We take care of the hard work in filtering junk emails for your company. Contact us today to get started.
