IT headache cured for SMEs with launch of new managed service
SystemHost provides all IT needs through a simple network connection

4 March 2005 – Carnforth-based SystemHost Ltd today announced the launch of its new service providing total IT management for small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). SystemHost will provide customers with a secure and reliable managed IT service for a fixed monthly fee, which then frees managers and directors to concentrate on their core business activity.

Many SMEs do not have the resources to employ a full-time IT manager, and IT-related issues are often dealt with by staff as part of their day-to-day responsibilities. This can often lead to frustrated staff, diverted from their ‘proper’ jobs to spend time trying to fix IT problems, and an ad-hoc IT infrastructure with no provision for future needs. SystemHost is aiming to provide these smaller companies with a better way of working by using high speed, low cost broadband connections.

“SystemHost is itself a small business. We understand that what an SME needs is help, support, guidance and experience. With our well-developed relationships with the key industry vendors such as HP, Microsoft and Your Communications, and our fully qualified and accredited IT personnel, we can take away the pain of managing an IT infrastructure by, in effect, becoming the SME’s IT department. This means we can offer peace of mind when dealing with all IT issues,” explained Darren Clement, managing director of SystemHost Ltd.

SystemHost provides organisations with up-to-date equipment, software, helpdesk and support services, reducing IT-related downtime and speeding up many working practices. By providing IT as a managed service instead of a set of products, SMEs are able to increase productivity, and therefore profitability, through a more efficient working environment for staff.

SystemHost will consult on the exact requirements of each individual company and fit its service around their own specific needs. It then manages the systems for a fixed monthly fee, making IT spend completely transparent, predictable and manageable. The service provides companies with exactly what they need, on demand, when they need it.

Forward-thinking customers that have already signed up to SystemHost include Quay Equestrian (manufacturing and supplying horse care products), RG Construction (a construction company), and C&S Civils (civil engineers). Fisher Wrathall, a Lancaster-based, high-value estate agency and chartered surveyor business, has also seen the benefit of SystemHost’s service. “Effectively, IT is no longer a problem and we have been freed up to do our jobs - run our business - confident in the knowledge that SystemHost will be looking after our IT. Our IT was suffocating the business at one stage, but we are now breathing freely,” said Geoffrey Rowlinson, partner at Fisher Wrathall.

Further details on the new service can be found on www.systemhost.co.uk. SystemHost is a subsidiary of NetCentrix Ltd, a well established server based computing and storage systems reseller.
