DirectPointe Small Office Solution Removes IT Headaches for Small Businesses


Tuesday, January 16, 2007; 06:29 AM

DirectPointe, a leader in managed computing services, today announced the immediate availability of the DirectPointe Small Office Solution, a full-featured, enterprise-class networking solution for small businesses. The Small Office Solution provides all of the core server and networking hardware, software and support services a small business needs for a consistent, monthly fee.

The DirectPointe Small Office Solution simplifies information technology for small businesses by fully integrating their server and network components into a single plug-and-play server. Once the server is set up, DirectPointe also monitors the network for potential problems and provides any necessary technical support as part of the monthly fee.

DirectPointe’s Small Office Solution is now available after a successful pilot program with a wide range of customers in education, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing and advertising, amongst others. Kids Village, an educational facility for young children, deployed the solution to take care of their IT needs and to create a safe and secure learning environment for their students.

“I loved how easy it was to get started with the Small Office Solution,” said Ann Whittaker, president and founder of Kids Village. “I thought we were going to have a lot of down time and interruptions to our business – which would inevitably result in revenue loss. DirectPointe installed our solution during a time that didn’t disrupt our business, and I can’t remember even one hour of down time during or since. Everything about this solution is easy, and we get everything we need to run our business for one low, monthly fee that any small business could afford.”

The Small Office Solution includes all of the server components for file, print, messaging, FTP, proxy, LDAP, local backup, Web and database. The network components include managed firewall and VPN, content filtering, intrusion detection and prevention, bandwidth management, dynamic DNS services, and wireless access.

“Small business owners generally don’t want to worry about how much storage they have or how their backup system works. They just want to know that their e-mail and data are available to them 24/7,” said Michael Proper, DirectPointe CEO. “With the Small Office Solution, DirectPointe takes care of a small business owner’s technology concerns, so they can focus on their core business.”

The Small Office Solution can easily scale to accommodate growth by adding more users or additional applications. With support for up to 50 users per location, the solution works for small businesses or for remote offices of a large enterprise.

DirectPointe Small Office Solution is now available. Pricing is tiered based on the number of users and starts at introductory price of $250 per month for up to 5 users. For more information, visit http://www.directpointe.com/smallofficesolution_pr.html.
