2. Using a proactive approach to managing our client’s infrastructure. 

TCS keeps a close watch on our client’s network infrastructure, including their local and remote computers and serversThrough a set of best-in-class software tools that we deploy as part of our services, we can patch, update, and take remote control (with permission) of any computer with an internet connection. We understand that a minor problem that occurs today may seem unimportant, but it may grow over time and eventually cause significant disruption and downtime. By proactively dealing with potential issues, we save our clients’ money because of reduced downtime and costs. There was a time in IT when all the focus was on response times. While response time is still critical, TCS is focused intently on preventing problems ahead of time to avoid downtime

Designing a reliable IT platform for your firm that makes the best use of cloud and onsite infrastructure is what we do consistently for our clients. That is why we have become the go-to IT technology firm in Central, North Carolina for small to mid-sized businessesWe do not have a crystal ball to predict the future, but we believe that the future is partly cloudy. The reliability and flexibility of cloud solutions can be prohibitively expensive for aorganization to design and build an onsite solutionFor this reason, we encourage our clients to look carefully at hosting in the cloud. 

The ideal time for considering a change is when you are up against a server hardware refresh. We have solutions for every situation, including the co-location of your existing equipment in a local data centerpurchasing virtual servers that are part of a large data center, or SoftwareasaService; we will help you work through the pros and cons of each of these optionsThere is no one size fits all solution, so we custom build the right solution for you today that will carry you into the future.
