The Real Estate Company has three branch offices with no central server to tie everything together. E-mail was POP3 at an ISP. If a person at a branch office was sick, someone had to be dispatched to work at that office for the day.
We provided a hosted application solution. We put all of the software they needed to run their business (Office 2000 QuickBooks, Leader Edge) on our servers. They connect in using Microsoft’s Terminal Server client. Now all employees in the company can work closely together on sales leads. The company does not need to purchase or maintain any network or server equipment. All monthly IT costs are fixed with no equipment to maintain.
With flexibility of the Terminal Server solution, employees can work at home or switch offices without actually moving to that office. This allows a personnel reduction and a huge cost savings.
