IT Services Offered
Our IT Outsourcing Practice offers services from basic troubleshooting of desktop systems to the most complex installations and support of IT infrastructures, such as multi-platform network management and support, data center hosting and cloud services.
Strategic IT Planning
Strategic IT planning is recognized as one of the key factors to business success. This process includes the creation of a Technology Roadmap, which defines short-term and long-term business goals and identifies specific technology solutions to help meet those goals. Strategic planning can also include IT budgeting and GAP analysis, which compares the actual performance of IT systems with potential performance and ITO Strategic IT Planning goals. A number of national banks as well as government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security and Los Alamos National Laboratory, have undergone strategic IT planning processes and shown a return on investment of up to 700%.
On-site IT Systems Management
On-site IT systems management is the total administration of a client’s IT infrastructure, including end user desktop support, as well as complete backend server room management and support.
Cloud services, or cloud computing, are services that are delivered over a network. Clients can avoid upfront infrastructure costs by outsourcing their software and/or infrastructure needs to a cloud provider.
Data Center Managed Hosting & Co-location Services
Managed hosting relieves the daily pressures of IT infrastructure oversight so you can stay focused on growing your business. InfoTech’s managed hosting delivers a breadth of services and levels of support that you just won’t find elsewhere.
Security for your network devices and data can come in many forms and varying degrees of sophistication. Careful planning for your network security infrastructure must be done by qualified personnel or the security measures will fall short of desired performance objectives.
Disaster Recovery & Backup Service
Disaster recovery is a subset of business continuity planning that focuses on the recovery of technology systems that support critical business processes in an organization. Disasters can strike at any time so it’s important to have a plan for disaster recovery. We can take care of your business processes, technology and data so you can focus on your customers and employees in a time of need.
Network installation is the process of designing, installing and maintaining a reliable network for an organization. Oftentimes, the challenge with network installation is not in creating a brand new network, but planning and creating a working system within an existing network that has developed over the life of the business.
System integration refers to combining several components into one system and ensuring all parts work together in a fully functional system. Some examples of such integrations include: Third-party financial data provider feeds to a network, Central and remote office integration and information sharing, Collaboration integration for better information sharing.
Technology Relocation & IT Rollout Services
When an organization is moving operations to new or multiple locations or is expanding existing locations, it will need technology systems relocation services. Similarly, IT rollout services encompass the full set of technology services required to manage change in an organization’s IT infrastructure.
As the name implies, preventative maintenance refers to performing proactive tasks in order to prevent system problems. Over the years, InfoTech has developed a detailed preventative PC maintenance plan for our customers. The plan includes climate-environment control, hardware diagnostics, firmware and software updates, and virus and malware scans. For example, excess heat can accelerate the deterioration of the delicate circuits in computers. The most common causes of overheating are dust and dirt. Clogged vents and CPU cooling fans can keep heat-dissipating air from moving through the case and can raise the temperature of the PC’s components. An overheated system doesn’t perform at its best capacity; therefore, InfoTech’s technicians take any necessary measures to keep your system clean, inside and out.

We understand that different organizations have different needs, in terms of both the types of service needed and the volume of support required. Clearly, a five-person organization has very different needs than a company with 1,000 employees. To accommodate these different needs, we offer different types of ongoing support contracts:
Premium IT Services Contracts
Gold Agreement – Fixed hours per month
The typical Premium Contract client has a medium-sized network (less than 40 workstations and one or a few servers) and business operations that can continue with minimal impact if the network is down for short periods of time.
Under this arrangement, clients usually commit to a minimum block of hours per month for a period of no less than one year.
Response time under the Premium Contract may be up to two hours.
Enterprise IT Services Contracts
Platinum Agreement – Full-time equivalent (FTE)
The typical client purchasing an Enterprise Contract has a large network (more than 40 workstations and multiple servers) or business operations that cannot continue if the network is down for short periods of time.
This is an FTE arrangement under which the client has full-time technician(s) on board, billing at least forty hours per week. This allows for constant on-site presence of InfoTech staff, monitoring the client’s IT infrastructure and immediately responding to any IT issues, as well as performing additional IT functions, such as upgrades and updates, new system installations, etc.
Response time under the Enterprise Contract is immediate, since the InfoTech technician is already stationed at the client site.
Express Contracts – Pay as you go
The typical client purchasing a Professional Contract has a small network and business operations that can continue with minimal impact if their network is down for a short period of time.
Under this arrangement, clients usually purchase a block of hours in advance, with no commitment beyond that purchase.
While we try to serve our clients promptly after they call, response time under the Professional Contract can be up to eight hours.
Fixed–Price IT Services Contracts
The typical client purchasing a Fixed–Price IT Services contract has a short-term IT project, for example a system relocation or rollout, which requires additional resources to complete.
This is a Fixed–Price arrangement for IT services under which the client contracts InfoTech to deliver a well-defined product or service at a price that has been agreed upon in advance of the work being conducted. Fixed–Price contracts cover all of the time, effort and material required to achieve the requested deliverable and end when the deliverable has been accepted by the client.
Response time under the Fixed–Price arrangement is agreed upon on a case by case basis since it is dictated by the client requirements and the scope of the project/deliverable.
Time-and-Material IT Services Contracts
This is a time-and-material arrangement for IT services under which the client contracts InfoTech to accomplish a task, deliver a service or provide support on an as needed basis. This contract type is often used if the deliverables cannot be clearly defined due to the nature to the project i.e. a complicated network problem needs to be diagnosed and addressed, an employee of the client is on an undefined leave of absence, etc.
Response time under the time-and-material arrangement is agreed upon on a case by case basis, since it is dictated by the client requirements and the scope of the project / deliverable.
Your site will be crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience, with minimal resizing, panning, and scrolling and across a wide range of devices, from desktop monitors to mobile devices.
Custom Application Development
Our Custom Application Practice provides a systematic methodology of application development tailored to our clients’ needs. It is at the heart of the InfoTech organization and continuously pumps new blood into our various business practices. We specialize in developing custom products for our clients, as well as proprietary products offered on a SaaS (Software as a Service) basis, such as our Research Publishing Automation System. The success of those products has allowed InfoTech to transform them into their own business practices.
Social Media Development
Social media refers to technologies used to create, share, and exchange content and ideas among people in virtual networks. It depends largely on accessing information from mobile devices and accessing the internet using the new Web 2.0 technologies. It is also driven and fortified by the massive trends of Globalization, Cloud Computing, and Consumerization of IT.
Hardware and Software Sales
Our Hardware and Software Sales capability is a value added service for clients of our IT Outsourcing Practice. It is in place to help our clients choose the right hardware and software for their organizations. Whether you are looking for a PC, server, laptop or that rare hardware component that no one else seems to be able to find, we can help.
