Doing more with less seems to be the norm in today's small business. As unemployment statistics continue to be the lowest America has seen in a long time, outsourcing by small and medium-size businesses continues to be a viable option, especially in the IT arena.
Two new California-based companies called Everdream Corp. and CenterBeam Inc. are examples of outsource options that can handle any matter related to technology, for a monthly fee. Services include Web access, tech support and hosting.
Other companies are entering the competitive small business environment in helping companies outsource applications. IBM, for example, just started Small Business Web Connections, a subscription-based service with hardware, software and service.
