We can assist in the following areas:
Infrastructure Review and Healthcheck
Sometimes what you need most is an external, independent expert opinion.
Our review services will help you to better understand what you have in place; what's fit-for-business and, more importantly, what falls short of current best practice and might be causing you unnecessary risk or performance issues.
We offer a range of health checks designed to help isolate the cause of any problems you are currently experiencing and leave you with a clear route forward for resolving those problems. Whatever the economic conditions, your business should be running in the most efficient way possible. However, many organisations can find it difficult to streamline the costs involved in IT without compromising the delivery of a fit-for-business Service.
An Efficiency Planning exercise from Plan-Net covering your entire IT Infrastructure is surprisingly low cost and takes place over a fixed number of days - making it extremely cost-effective as a tool for streamlining IT without hindering the success of your organisation.

Email & Communication Migrations

IT departments now need to treat email as a 24 x 7 operation, and ensure they can be confident in its reliability. Email data is precious - it's often the case that important business data only exists inside the email system, and therefore there's a greater imperative to ensure that it's properly backed-up and that archived emails can be retrieved as required.
