Est. Reading Time: 3 minutes

Beacon Technologies, the Triad’s long-time Web Solutions leader, officially announces the launch of Beacon IT Services.  This new division will provide managed services to Triad-based businesses only, whereas the rest of the business provides web solutions services across the US.  Although Beacon has been providing managed services to various companies since 2000, the company has now officially formed a separate business unit that is dedicated to providing managed services to local customers.BITS-ad-1

Beacon is also making an unprecedented offer to all Triad businesses in that it will provide free web hosting, a free Google digital marketing package and deeply discounted website development for new BITS customers (qualified small businesses).   John Scaramuzzo, Beacon’s COO, who heads up this initiative says, “This offer was designed specifically for local businesses.  They will not only get a local IT services partner that is highly responsive and proactive, but they will also benefit from other areas of Beacon that will help grow their business.  Our objective is to monitor and protect our clients’ infrastructures before problems start.  It’s more like managing wellness rather than waiting to treat sickness.  We are here, in Greensboro, and we can be on site within an hour if needed.”

Mark Dirks, Beacon’s CEO, pointed out that Beacon has always been community focused.  “Every business depends on IT and their website nowadays to conduct business.  John and I discussed providing free hosting services to local businesses several years ago, so we are glad to finally offer it to the Triad when coupled with our IT services.  It’s important that local companies buy local when it makes sense.  Now, simply by signing up for Beacon IT Services, Triad firms receive great rates and value by leveraging the 15 years of experience we have in web design, digital marketing and web hosting.”

Beacon currently manages websites from all over the country right here in Greensboro at tw telecom’s co-location facility, which sits on their internet backbone and provides all the necessary redundant services to keep customers up and running.  Beacon’s Hosting Team has setup banks of shared and dedicated servers to support websites, applications and databases.   Email management, spam filtering, scheduled backups, DNS management, Google Analytics, regular maintenance and upgrades are just some of the standard services that are included for businesses that host with Beacon.
