It’s Finally Here! See the Birth…

After 8.5 hours of hard labor at M3 on St. Patrick’s Day, our newborn officially arrived at 3:20pm, weighing in at a hefty 4,621 pounds. Under trusted and constant care, Team M3 delivered a bright, healthy and colorful addition to the Beacon family.  We are so thankful for all the attention we are receiving for our carefully wrapped bundle of joy, which we’ve named “The BITS-Mobile”.

Beacon’s IT Services Division (“BITS”), which primarily serves the Triad area (Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point) has experienced fast growth over the last year. “The BITS-Mobile will not only provide transportation for our technical staff, but also transport equipment such as servers and desktops to our client sites when necessary,” says Mark Dirks, Beacon’s CEO.  “Since our BITS clients are mostly Triad-based, our marketing team recommended a more traditional ‘mobile’ marketing approach through vehicle graphics for local brand visibility.

Matthews Mobile Media (“M3”) has an incredible team and worked with our design team to produce a really creative and professional design. John Scaramuzzo, Beacon’s co-founder and COO, leads the newly dubbed “BITS” Division and is anticipating continued growth after seeing the client base double over the last 12 months.  “Although my team constantly monitors our clients’ technical infrastructure to maintain system health and deter technical problems, there are times when the staff needs to be on site for installations and to work on specific issues,” says Scaramuzzo.  “BITS is essentially an extension of our client’s organization and it’s important that we can be on-site within minutes.  So the BITS-Mobile is a welcome addition to the Team!”


Special Note from Matthews Mobile Media (M3): “Congratulations!  It’s a BITS mobile!!! We have been clients of Beacon for several years and have benefited from their expert team’s proactive service.  There is no doubt that the personal attention and dedication to client growth is a reflection of their mission.  What a privilege to be a part of the birth of their next generation by helping bring the BITS-Mobile to life.  To us, it is a natural fit because we specialize in mobile.  We help companies from all over express themselves through vehicle and environmental graphics.

We like to turn heads for our clients; that’s what we do! So helping to design, create, produce and apply that ‘outerwear’ for our Beacon’s newborn gives us an exceptional rush!  Who knew IT could be so sexy?  Well… we did ;)

Thank you, Beacon, for letting us outfit your newest addition!  All of us at Team M3 look forward to watching the BITS-Mobile grow up and have a little brother or sister very soon!

BITS Blog – A Technical Blog for the Non-Technical

Welcome to the Beacon IT Services (BITS) blog.  My name is Ryan Bowles, Account Executive for BITS. This blog is intended to be a resource for small/medium sized businesses to help better take control of their IT.  You will notice that my title does not include any words like Network, Systems, Engineer, or Administrator (even though we have plenty of people here that do!). Although I do consider myself an IT Professional, my expertise comes from understanding how IT relates to a business and what can be done to ensure that technology is an asset to a business and not a burden.  This blog won’t be about speeds, feeds, and technical specs (although we will sprinkle in some technical “how to” blogs by the above mentioned specialists from time to time).  Rather, the majority of posts here will be directed towards the small business owners and managers. The goal being to help you better understand technology and how it relates to your business by answering questions that most companies have (or should have) about what to do with their IT.  Ever wonder when you should upgrade your PCs? How about determining if you should replace your old server or move to the cloud?  What is a firewall and do I need one?  These are the types of questions I will be helping to answer.  So as we move forward please share this post and continue to check back to catch up on all the Tips, Tricks, and How To’s of small business technology.

BITS is an IT services company located in Greensboro NC, dedicated to helping our clients improve business productivity.  We do this by offering a range of IT services, leveraging a team of experts to proactively manage our clients IT and ensure that technology is a consistent and reliable asset to their business.
