Waltham, Massachusetts (PRESS RELEASE – June 23, 2011) – mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc., a leading IT outsourcing and cloud services provider for small and mid-size businesses (SMBs), recently launched cloudSHIFT services aimed at meeting the needs of SMBs. Leveraging mindSHIFT’s cloudSHIFT Computing Platform, SMBs now have access to the benefits of all aspects of an enterprise-class IT infrastructure previously unavailable to them.
“Off-loading our IT needs to mindSHIFT has proven a smart business decision,” said Denise Doll-Kiefer, CFO of Salo, LLC. “We have access to enterprise-class services that have never been practical for us to use before. With mindSHIFT, our employees can remain focused on projects key to growing the business while mindSHIFT takes the remainder off our plate at a great price. They have removed a significant burden, our business runs more efficiently and the personal attention and support from mindSHIFT has been great.”
The cloudSHIFT service portfolio includes:
- cloudSHIFT(SM) Applications – enables users to access a suite of secure cloud application services without the need to purchase hardware or software.
- cloudSHIFT(SM) Desktop – a secure, affordable, trouble-free alternative to purchasing, managing and maintaining desktop equipment. Software traditionally located on the customer’s desktop is housed and managed on servers in mindSHIFT’s secure data centers and accessible through a web browser.
- cloudSHIFT(SM) Server – allows SMBs to take advantage of mindSHIFT’s expertise, facilities and support to achieve all the benefits of virtualization, without the time, costs and resources required to deploy and maintain their own on-premise solution.
- cloudSHIFT(SM) VoIP – provides users with a business-grade telephone system that offers low initial startup costs, offsite disaster recovery protection and a simplified user interface, when compared to standard business phone systems.
“Unlike other providers that claim one size fits all, mindSHIFT understands that its customers have differing requirements and needs,” said Mona Abutaleb, President and COO, mindSHIFT Technologies, Inc. “We like to say that we move our customers to the cloud at the speed of ‘makes sense.’ We take the time to understand our customers’ business and IT requirements and then match cloud services to meet those needs – now and as their businesses grow.”
mindSHIFT offers a broad range of ‘Grow-As-You-Go’ IT outsourcing and cloud services. SMBs start by outsourcing what makes sense for their organizations, and then grow with mindSHIFT as their needs grow. For example, mindSHIFT can host email and provide other infrastructure services, such as backup, recovery and archiving. Some organizations use mindSHIFT’s data center services, while other companies use mindSHIFT to host and manage their entire IT infrastructure — desktops, servers, networks and security.
