Our Favorite BITS: Gratefully Reflecting on 2021

Published November 19, 2021 | Categories: BITS News

As the days grow shorter and families gather for holidays, we often take time to reflect on the past year’s events and accomplishments in our lives. Anniversaries. Graduations. Promotions. All those memorable moments you look back on and smile. We’ve had plenty of those moments here at Beacon IT Services (BITS) over this busy year, with plenty of notable events and advancements in our realm of managed IT services.

For the entire month of November, we’ve been highlighting various things that we’re #Thankful for on our social media channels. From celebrating our nation’s veterans on Veteran’s Day to when we come together with our families on Thanksgiving, the month of November alone gives us a lot to be thankful for.

(Sidenote: we’re also #Thankful for follows! For more BITS insights, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn!)

In the spirit of the most grateful month of the year, the BITS team reflected on 2021 to share some of the things we are most thankful for.

BITS is Thankful for New Tools

Despite ongoing worldwide issues surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at BITS hasn’t slowed down since the start. With the difficulties that the pandemic continues to create for businesses of all sizes, our growing team continues to nimbly step up to the plate and help our clients during these unpredictable times. To do so, our team has grown stronger than ever internally, with a full-service attitude committed to client success.

One of the ways we’ve grown internally is by making improvements to our own IT solutions. Following industry-wide best practices, we enabled multi-factor authentication across all Beacon employees’ computers. We have also begun rolling MFA to clients, which will provide an added level of security, and collectively, these upgrades will keep everyone better protected. It is all about staying ahead so our clients don’t have to worry about any interruptions in their service.

Even better, with our expertise in the latest cyber security measures and processes, we can help set up multi-factor authentication for your business, too. We got it done for Beacon in less than a week. We can have MFA up-and-running for you quickly and efficiently too.

BITS is Thankful for New Opportunities

Just this past month in October, the BITS team finalized significant contracts with two brand new clients.

“We are now working with Circle Graphics to support their two locations in High Point, NC, which boast an infrastructure of over 50 servers,” reports Kevin Lackey, Account Executive for the BITS team. “They now have our entire BITS technical team supporting them, rather than a single Systems Administrator, partnering with their on-site IT folks in a co-managed arrangement,” says Lackey. “We also signed Riithink to an agreement for both IT Services and Cloud Services that includes a hosted server solution using Microsoft Azure.”

We’re always thrilled for the opportunity to build new client partner relationships and to help more businesses keep their IT networks performing at their very best. Could you be our next client partner? We would love to chat and see what we can do for your business!

BITS is Thankful for YOU!

After a banner year that shows no sign of slowing down, we have to acknowledge the group we’re thankful for year-round: ALL of our client partners! We know you depend on us year after year to maintain business continuity. We also know that it’s a choice and we don’t take that lightly. Thank you for being part of the BITS family. Your trust is the best gift we can receive for the holidays!

For those of you who aren’t working with us (yet), consider this: Are you thankful for the IT services your company experienced in the past year? Are you satisfied with their cloud-based solutions? Can you depend on them for live in-person assistance? Did they proactively protect you from cyber security threats? Do they have all of your important data backed up safely?

If you answered “no” to any of these, maybe it’s time for a change? We would be glad to talk with you about our services and ultimately, give you more peace of mind around your technical infrastructure. As we like to say, “No worries. We got IT.”

Have a Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at BITS. We hope you have as much to be thankful for as we do!
