A fast, secure and reliable network in the office is key to getting things done efficiently. Our engineers are skilled in network setup configuration. We stay current with industry standards, so we can offer different solutions to your networking and security needs as you grow or as your business changes
Act Systems, Ltd. is able to maintain equipment like servers, workstations, routers, switches, and access points to keep your office running smoothly. Hardware issues like out of date drivers, firmware, or even old or outdated equipment could slow things down. We can help make recommendations based on your current and future business needs.
Software updates can be tedious, but updates are too important to ignore. What version do I need? How many licenses do I need? How do I get my old data loaded into the new computer? These can be confusing questions that we may already know the answer to. Security Updates from Microsoft, Google, Adobe, or even Java can be extremely important. Staying up to date makes your system more secure, faster, and more reliable.
Everyone loves a care package. Your data systems are no exception! We have a remote monitoring system that is multi-faceted and you choose what or how much “care” will be good for your business. From preventative maintenance and back-ups to antivirus and a coverage for warranty support. We provide top rated support for workstations and servers.
