JetDesk: Let Go of Traditional IT With Cloud Based Support
Posted By Annie Pilon On September 25, 2012 @ 4:00 pm In Technology Trends | 2 Comments
Many small businesses use the cloud for just about everything – storage, sharing, collaboration, and more. But many haven’t considered actually using the cloud for IT and maintenance, even though that type of service might be helpful to plenty of small businesses. That’s where IT support company JetDesk comes in.
Mike Jones, Co-founder of JetDesk:
“JetDesk is a way for SMB’s to break free from traditional IT. We enable business owners to put their IT in our cloud so that they can spend less on IT and leverage our cloud infrastructure.”
Founded last year, JetDesk offers a variety of IT support options that could be especially useful for small businesses that don’t have the resources to enact traditional IT or for those whose employees work remotely and thus require a different type of IT solution.
Ryan Stevens, Co-founder of JetDesk:
“We are able to manage your network remotely so small businesses can save time and money. We no longer need to have ‘computer guys’ come to your work to fix problems. We can make sure everything is running smoothly from our offices because your desktops are being hosted in our enterprise level data centers.”
JetDesk  has partnerships with large companies like Dell and Microsoft, so that companies that use the service can continue working with their well-known programs while receiving IT support in the cloud.
“It makes for an incredibly familiar user experience. We give our user a Windows environment, loaded with all of the most up to date Microsoft software (Excel, Powerpoint, Word, Outlook). That means users do not have to worry about updates or licensing.”
Other features include security and virus protection, file sharing, and more. Monthly prices  vary based on amount of storage and software upgrades needed. The company also offers phone and online support, in an effort to make the whole IT experience as hassle-free as possible.
“We come from small businesses ourselves and know the pain that can be IT. We started JetDesk because traditional IT is overcomplicated and too expensive.”
