You’re in business to serve your customers and make a profit. You have all the ingredients for success: expertise, hard work, and dedicated employees. But in today’s marketplace, you also need solid technology to support your business. Your employees need a way to share files, collaborate, schedule meetings, send and receive e-mail, and access the Internet. Customers will want to look you up online and send you e-mail. And, you’ll want to present a professional image and make good first impressions with your business’ own domain name (mycompany.com) rather than a free email account.
Additionally, you’ll want to have a contingency plan for your critical business data – ensuring you have a backup and disaster recovery plan for occasions when small, or big, issues arise. And you don’t want to have to worry about the security of your information, or managing complex technology.
Having the ability to enable all of these important business components can be a significant differentiator and advantage for a business. IBM Lotus Foundations Start, an offering delivered and supported by your local VAR or systems integrator, provides the technology to do just that.
