Why Use Hosted Services?

When your IT needs have outgrown your equipment and the staff to manage it, it’s time to consider hosted services. GroupOne’s hosted services include application hosting, hosted exchange, hosted SharePointe for collaboration, small business server hosting, and private cloud administration. We deal with the IT management, maintenance, and equipment that keeps your business running so you can deal with running your business.

With hosted services, you can take advantage of Microsoft and other technologies that take your business operations to a more efficient and competitive level, improving security, communication, and computing power in the most cost-effective way.

Network World’s Zeus Kerravala cites several solid reasons for using hosted solutions, including centralized management and administration of IT systems and services, fast extension of services to remote employees, implementation of BYOD (bring your own device), and the cost-effectiveness of subscription services.

  • Implementation and management tasks are greatly reduced with hosted solutions, saving significant labor hours and improving accuracy and quality.

  • With mobile and remote employees in multiple locations, hosted solutions provide a more unified and consistent user and management computing environment with faster access at lower costs than on-site equipment.

  • The increasing use of personal devices at work has made the IT responsibility of controlling equipment and software extremely challenging. Moving communications to the cloud with hosted services creates greater flexibility for both IT management and user productivity.

  • The cost benefits of using hosted services include no upfront capital outlay, known monthly costs for services, and more efficient use of IT staffing.

Call GroupOne (916) 817-8877 to discuss hosted solutions or IT consulting for your business needs. We can help you understand how hosted services could save you time and money and improve IT efficiencies in your business.

GroupOne Care Introduced




Flat-Rate, State of the art – IT Management Services, “GroupOne Care


Folsom, California  (June 6, 2010) –  Group One, a Northern California firm known for its cutting-edge technology-related services, is pleased to introduce “GroupOne Care,” an automated IT monitoring service specifically designed to trim costs and maximize productivity for small and medium businesses.

GroupOne Care draws from the latest innovations in IT management, allowing Group One to remotely tap into each of its clients’ IT infrastructure through a secure web server. In doing so, they can proactively maintain each system with a high level of efficiency.

“What makes it proactive is that we can, from our office, see where problems are the second they show up,” said Group One CEO Chris Wiegman. “Often times we’ll actually be working on a problem before the client even knows it’s there. If there’s a virus attacking their system, we’re on it immediately.”

Because of the revolutionary simplicity built into GroupOne Care, Group One is able to offer its clients one of three affordable flat-rates, based on the size and needs of their organization.

“During these tough economic times, a flat-rate is a convenient necessity for business owners, it allows management to set a budget without having additional IT cost for unnecessary downtime,” said Wiegman. “For a set rate, we’ll provide the same high level of service, regardless of how many service requests we handle.”

In addition to being cost-effective, GroupOne Care is also eco-friendly, as it reduces service call-related emissions and cracks down on wasteful energy use on the client side.

“Of course, we won’t be on the road as much with 90 percent of our work being done remotely,” Wiegman said. “But it’s also energy efficient for our customers because we can monitor their power usage. If 30 of their employees leave for the day and forget to turn off their computers, we’ll turn them off for them.”
