Pro Tech Security
Pro Tech is a large client for Computer Courage. With over 30 workstations spread across two offices, Pro Tech was facing an emergency when their previous IT support, a one-man operation, quit his independent contracting to take a full time job. Fortunately, Pro Tech found Computer Courage online and hired us to work on a transition from the single contractor to our team-based support. Over the years we set up and maintained a new mail server, upgraded antivirus, upgraded the VPN to Cisco equipment, and helped the Pro Tech executive team keep their computers and their specialized database running 24-7, as a security company never sleeps.
Recently, we moved Pro Tech’s email, calendar, and contact solution away from a private Microsoft Exchange server and into the cloud via Google Apps for Business. The in-house Exchange server was getting old, and Pro Tech’s growing volume of email data was getting to be too much for it. Computer Courage came to the Pro Tech San Francisco offices to meet with the CEO and do some cost analysis to determine whether it was more efficient to upgrade/replace the server, or move to the cloud. Our calculations showed us that a switch to Google Apps for Business would save thousands of dollars and hours of hassle, allowing them to revitalize their old server and use it for their files and database, saving thousands more.
