Today even the smallest of businesses can easily own more than twenty computing devices: desktops, laptops, networking and security equipment, plus the ubiquitous smartphones, Blackberries, Windows Mobile devices... The list is endless. And with these increasing inventories comes an increasing demand for service, maintenance, upkeep and - most importantly - keeping them all secure and running smoothly.

 

As much as 60% of corporate data resides unprotected on PC desktops and laptops. (IDC analyst Cynthia Doyle, Business Continuity in 2002: It's Not Business as Usual, April 2002) As far back as 2002, surveys conducted found PCs to be infected at a rate of more than 10% each month. (ICSA Labs, 2002)

 

Security services firm TruSecure found that, even back in 2001,

“...corporations were hit with a monthly average of 113 virus infections for every 1000 PCs they owned, according to the seventh annual survey of virus prevalence in the enterprise conducted by ICSA Labs, a division of security services firm TruSecure.”

“The most common effect of a virus infection, reported by 70 percent of respondents, was rendering a PC unavailable to the user, the study found. Sixty-nine percent of respondents said that viruses had cost productivity, while 37 percent reported loss of data due to viruses.”

Time has not diminished the importance of these statistics - viruses, improperly-configured machines or networking equipment and other associated problems are the root causes for the majority of businesses' IT downtime. With more and more employees relying on computers to perform their daily duties, the percentage of users potentially affected has dramatically increased - this is why CustomMade has tailored a variety of solutions specifically to the needs of today's businesses.

 

Small businesses are particularly hard hit when their IT infrastructure develops problems, and often these problems can be quite tricky to resolve. So, we ensure sure that we come fully prepared for the majority of most situations, and we can react quickly to any unique situations which may require further investigation.

From small, single or several-machine configurations to entire networks of machines across various subnets with dedicated servers and other hardware, we can handle it for you - ensuring that your infrastructure is secure, robust enough to withstand future attempts of disruption by malicious software (and users!), and we also perform any routine maintenance and security updates as a matter of course.

We are also happy to liaise with service providers to resolve issues (recent examples include dealing with BT Local Business or any one of a number of Internet Service Providers to resolve line faults / misprovisioned services / chase up existing outstanding issues). We are knowledgeable and experienced in talking to service providers, and we speak their language - cutting down on the time needed to explain a problem and allowing it to be dealt with far more quickly.

 

More importantly than anything else, CustomMade also understands the importance of fast turnaround for business, which is why we offer a range of evening and weekend callout services, priced per day and per engineer, which will ensure that your infrastructure is ready to help make you money come the start of trading. We can also provide you with ongoing support over a period of months or years, bringing with it its own discount on the service price.

Contact us for more information or to request our services for your business.

 

On-site support and maintenance is readily available in the West Midlands
and Wiltshire areas - further afield on request.
