Hello and welcome to our first newsletter of 2013.

We trust you enjoyed some time off over the Christmas/New Year period and had opportunity to both reflect on 2012 and look forward to the year ahead.

We are well and truly back into the swing of things with many exciting plans for this year. We have been continuing to build our technical services team with 7 full-time technicians at the time of this newsletter and another body due to join us shortly.

We will also be hiring a new Technical Services Manager and are currently implementing an entirely new service management system to provide further improvements in our ability to support our growing client base.

The tragic flooding events in Queensland and New South Wales, as well as the bushfires in Victoria, bring home the importance of making sure we have adequate backups of data, systems and operating environments, and that these are maintained at a remote location. When evacuating a building you don’t want to be having to think about grabbing backup drives or tapes – the most important thing is to get people to safety. We can provide some additional peace of mind through various services including business continuity planning, hosted solutions, online backups and more.

It was exciting to see the Tour Down Under bring the Adelaide streets alive with some amazing cycling. We have some avid cyclists in the office and they really enjoyed getting into the spirit of the races, but thankfully kept the office lycra free!

Enjoy this month’s newsletter and remember you can read more interesting articles, tips and tricks on our web site blog, or simply contact us for further information.

All the very best for 2013.
