Managed Versus Unmanaged IT Support: How Live Support Can Improve Work Efficiency

ETech 7

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 12, 2013

Why should a company bother hiring an IT department at all? In today’s modern world where software is often available freely and legitimately from various sources on the internet, the hiring of human beings to work on computers might seem like less of a necessity and more of a luxury. After all, who needs backup services when their new computer with a free trial of Skydrive? Antivirus protection? Solved with a free trial of Norton. Concerns about spyware? Fixed by running the internet browser in “private mode”.

Yet while it’s easy to write off physical employees as surplus labor, Etech 7 CEO Emil Isanov cautions against letting go of the existing IT staff right away.

“Software can do a lot of things for a company” Mr. Isanov says, “and the idea of being able to obtain a valuable company service for ‘free’ is always appealing to business employers as well as employees. But that having been said, there’s a lot that software can’t do. Norton Antivirus, for example, can indeed protect you from a great many potential threats out there. But, it can’t protect you from every threat, it can’t selectively monitor your network traffic to inform you as a company owner which services (or which employees) are clogging the network, and once a problem manifests itself, while it can tell you the basics of what is wrong, it can’t give you a detailed report, explain that report to you, and then fix the issue itself. Those are things that a live team is needed for, and that’s what we mean when we say Etech 7 is a managed IT service–we mean that it’s managed by people, by us.”

And when it comes to potential IT failures, Mr. Isanov says, having a friendly face in the right place at the right time can make all the difference.

“The fact is that IT is a stressful profession and a stressful field. By nature, it involves attempting to set something up, waiting for it to go wrong, and then going about fixing it. In a way, technical support is the profession of waiting for things to go wrong. And while a trained technical professional like one of our employees can keep a cool head and a steady mind in the midst of an IT disaster, a company CEO or high level employee, in the midst of dealing with phone calls, memos, new customers, business pitches, and all other sorts of things specifically pertaining to their job might very well panic upon dealing with the day to day stress and Norton popping up on their work machine with a scary looking yellow window with red text that says that their data’s been compromised. If you want basic protection that might work some of the time, then by all means—go ahead and entrust your entire business’ data to a free program found through a Google search. But if you wants security? Results? And the guarantee of a trained employee that will fix the issue before it manifests itself a second time? Well, that’s when you call Etech 7, one of the best managed IT services in New York City.”

Food And Beverage Exports Grew By 29% From January To March 2012, Versus The First Quarter Of 2011

Guatemala (PRWEB) July 27, 2012

The food and beverage sector has been characterized as one of the leaders in export growth. In the past two decades, has grown from U.S. $ 50 million to over $ 800 million, showing a constant increase the food industry, followed by the beverage industry.

Over the past 5 years, the food and beverage sector has had an average growth of 18%. This is the result of many efforts, especially to be aware of the importance of innovation, quality and added value that Guatemala has given to its agricultural production to position itself in international markets, specialized technical training to strengthen businesses and allow them to have a skilled labor has generated new products, new markets and especially more jobs in the industry, explained the President of Food Commission, Francisco José Menéndez.

The food industry consists of 6 sub-sectors integrated as follows: 20% of beverages, 20% of preserved food, 15% of baking, 10% of candies, 8% of dairy and 27% of other processed foods. Together generate about 15 thousand direct jobs, of which more than 3 thousand are women.

80% of jobs generated by the food sector are located in the Capital City, however, the dynamism of the sector is linked to the agricultural sector due to the entrepreneurship of SMEs giving added value to food and open the doors to new markets, said Menéndez.

Entrepreneurs, optimistic about sustained growth and opening up market opportunities in Central America, Mexico, Europe and U.S., have launched the goal of reaching the billion dollars in foreign sales. To achieve this, the sector has been working since 2011 on specific export guidelines to facilitate and adequate information in order to promote new export projects.

According to the director of the commission, these guides are aimed at companies that start in exports, which seek market diversification projects, which intend to export to Mexico and/or the United States on a sustained basis. However, the project comprises three more guides: Central America, Panama and a destination country to be defined in 2013.

Among others, to define these markets, we did the analysis of which represented growth accounted for Guatemalan companies from the food and beverages sector. Definitely, Mexico and the United States are our main markets, after the Central American region and therefore, we seek to strengthen the SMEs to seize them and invite entrepreneurs to know more fully the opportunities of these countries, declared Menéndez.

From finding the terminology used in International Trade, economic data, consumers, Trade Balance, whether from Mexico or the United States, in addition to the top 25 products imported and exported by each sector of these countries. This is the information business operators of food and beverage will find on the export guides mentioned.

What we want eventually is that companies count on different market guides to enable them to consider diversification, new opportunities and actions that promote the export of products of the sector and thus, we can provide to SMEs a greater opportunity for growth, because that results in more foreign earnings, more employment opportunities, more dynamism on the incorporation of all exporting sectors, as it has been for the last 30 years in AGEXPORT, concluded Menéndez.
