In this period of economic crisis, maybe it’s time you took a closer look at what you’re REALLY getting for the money you’re spending on IT services and support.
“ACS has always been there when we were in pinch for time to get our computers up and running. When we need to upgrade our equipment we can call on them to get us quotes in a timely manner and be competitive on pricing.”
Teresa Fulford, Manager, Al Fulford Heating & Cooling
If someone could prove to you that tens of thousands of dollars were being unintentionally “stolen” from your organization – while simultaneously exposing you to hard losses that could stack up to the millions – wouldn’t you want them to tell you about it?
On the surface, Atlantic Computer Services may appear to be “just another” IT firm, but what we really deliver to CEOs like you is a profit-centric approach to IT. Our deliverable is MONEY, EFFICIENCY and peace of mind (SECURITY). Our approach is unique: We ensure your IT systems and investments actually drive profitable growth and shareholder value, not just “make your computers work.”
Maybe you’ve heard about us or recognize one of the clients we currently support, such as Plantation Village, HMF Express, Masonboro Urgent Care, or Stroud Company CPA. You can check out a full library of client testimonials at the Our Clients page on our website.
We realize that the opening claim may seem “sensational,” and that you’d be tempted to throw this letter away thinking we’re just another crackpot consultant firm looking for a paycheck. Maybe you think, “we’re fine.” It’s natural to insist, “Not in MY company,” or to think your IT team or company has you covered.
But you can be assured of this: Like Sherlock Holmes, We have never failed to find significant and preventable losses that were occurring in the companies we’ve audited – and it’s our firm belief that right now, this very minute, such losses are occurring in YOUR organization. You ARE being underserved and left unprotected. If you have even a sneaking suspicion that even some of this is true, at what point would it be irresponsible to be “too busy” to investigate it?
Here Are A Few Of The Ways Money Is “Unintentionally” Exiting Your Organization
Grossly Inadequate Data Compliance And Cyber Security Protections
When a cyber-attack happens, the losses stack up and multiply. First, there’s an instant loss of productivity. At best, you’re crippled. In the worse cases, you’re completely shut down, unable to transact, unable to deliver promised products and services to clients and unable to operate. In other cases, thousands if not millions of dollars are drained directly from your accounts without any chance of recovery.
Then you’ have the loss of critical data, reputational damages, potential lawsuits and government fines. The epicentre of this disaster lands DIRECTLY on YOUR desk for YOU to deal with – a problem that WILL significantly undo your best laid plans for growth and progress.
Yet despite this, we have found several companies that we’ve audited are GROSSLY unprepared and unprotected from a ransomware attack or other major cyber security event EVEN THOUGH they have invested heavily in IT staff and resources. Before we showed them irrefutable evidence of these inadequacies, the CEO was convinced his “IT team had it handled.” A ticking time bomb they didn’t know was “live” under their seat.
Chronic IT “Glitches” And Downtime
As the saying goes, “Overhead walks on two legs.” Any CEO knows that unproductive, distracted workers not only kill profitability, but increase the chances of mistakes, missed deadlines, sloppy work and low morale. A frustrated team is not a productive one.
Yet we find that most CEOs don’t realize just how often their employees are being interrupted and distracted due to recurring IT failures because it’s “hidden” from them. Many are shocked to discover their employees are dealing with chronic IT problems that are constantly getting in the way of serving clients, closing sales and doing their job, forcing them to stop what they are doing, re-doing the work they just spent hours doing, or possibly NOT doing what they are supposed to do. Just one hour of this a day adds up when multiplied over an entire year and your entire workforce. We resolve ALL of this.
“Maverick” Spending, Poor Utilization And Undisciplined Planning
Many companies we’ve audited have a mishmash of patch-work technology pieced together like an old quilt. A “Frankenstein” monster lumbering along. Nothing matches, nothing works as efficiently as it should and the entire IT system is awash in inefficiencies, duplicate and redundant resources and outdated technologies. Over time, pieces are added like band aides instead of being elegantly designed as a whole to maximize productivity and lower the total cost of ownership. Our approach is to eliminate ALL of this and ensure a well-crafted plan is put in place to maximize productivity, security and efficiencies.
Curious? Let’s Schedule A Brief 10-Minute Call To Discuss
The next step is simple: call our office at 910-338-4740 and reference this blog post to schedule a brief 10 to 15-minute initial consultation. My personal assistant has been notified to look for your call and will put you through immediately. You can also reach us HERE and leave a note that will reach us via email.
On this call we can discuss your unique situation, any concerns you have and of course, answer any questions you have about us. If you feel comfortable moving ahead, we’ll schedule a convenient time to conduct our ACS IT Systems Assessment.
This Assessment can be conducted 100% remote with or without your current IT company or department knowing (we can give you the full details on our initial consultation call). At the end of the Assessment, you’ll know:
- Where you are overpaying (or getting underserved) for the services and support you are currently getting from your current IT company or team.
- Whether or not your systems and data are truly secured from hackers and ransomware, and where you are partially or totally exposed.
- If your data is actually being backed up in a manner that would allow you to recover it quickly in the event of an emergency or ransomware attack.
- How you could lower the overall costs of IT while improving communication, security and performance, as well as the productivity of your employees.
Fresh eyes see things that others cannot – so at a minimum, our free Assessment is a completely cost and risk-free way to get a credible third-party validation of the security, stability and efficiency of your IT systems.
At The End Of This Assessment, One Of 3 Things Will Happen
Option 1 is that you’ll love the plan we provide (and may be shocked by what we uncover) but may decide to implement it on your own. If that’s the case, we’ll wish you the best of luck and hope you’ll keep us in mind for future projects.
Option 2 is that you’ll love the plan and will want my team’s help in implementing it. If that’s the case, we’ll knock it out of the park … and that’s a promise we guarantee.
Or finally, in the unlikely and unprecedented event that you feel like you wasted your time and have NOT demonstrated, to your satisfaction, how to lower your IT costs and dramatically improve your situation, we will part ways and you’ll never hear from us again.
Think about it: the “worst” that can happen is you get an independent, credible third party to validate the security, efficiency and stability of your IT systems. To get started, please call 910-338-4740, or reach out to us HERE, to answer your questions and see if you’d like to proceed.
We look forward to helping you save $$$ on the security, stability and efficiency of your IT systems!
