Turnkey IT Solutions Available Through Outsourced Options
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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
