Our Customer Accreditations

Patrick Thorpe

Director at Searing Point

“Starting a new venture is never easy. We needed flexibility in how we access our systems and data across multiple locations. Spector provided us with cloud-based desktops and support setting up Sage applications. Their knowledge of what a professional services company needed was excellent. They went above and beyond, dealing with our software suppliers.”

Liam Roycroft

Head of Operations at The Irish Film Institute

“Spector helped us transition from a full time onsite IT Manager to a fully outsourced model where they take care of all of our IT requirements. It has been a smooth transition with a very responsive helpdesk providing great issue traceability. Their team is great and provide us with a proper vision of how technology can be applied to our operations in the IFI.”

FAQ

Most people are not aware of all the possibilities within the realm of Cloud Computing. To help you make an informed decision, we made an article which compiles useful links and guides covering the most important aspects.

Whether they realise it or not, most businesses are already using the cloud. Every day, more and more applications are moving to cloud-based platforms. However, we recommend to clients that they start with the basics (such as backup, phone or email) and progress from there once they see for themselves the tangible benefits of cloud-based services.

As a senior manager of an SME, you are faced with many challenges including increasing profitability and growth while reducing operating costs. Most businesses are looking to technology to help achieve these goals. Over recent years, there has been a shift in how infrastructure and software are delivered as more cloud-based services become available.

Since you generally only pay for what you consume, this can offer savings and flexibility to many small and mid-sized companies. Spector will help you make informed decisions about your company’s adoption of cloud technology.

In our experience, clients who have moved services to the cloud have not only made cost savings; they’ve also improved their business through the increased flexibility it affords. The key benefit is that employees are able to access systems and be productive no matter where they are.

To put it in simple terms, a Hybrid Cloud is a mash-up of on-premises and off-premises IT resources. You can utilise a “public cloud”, commercialised by an external vendor, to augment or replicate the resources of your own data centre, or your “private cloud”. By combining the best of these two you will have a Hybrid Cloud, with extra security and flexibility to manage your data assets and workload.

Depending on your business needs, we can advise on the creation and management of a Hybrid Cloud. By doing it right, you are more likely to save money and have the resources you need when you need them.
