Are you prepared for the un-thinkable?
Is just insuring against business interruption enough? What processes have you in place today? Is the H1N1 pandemic is a test balloon for the coming pandemic? Can you guard against the extended power outages which have already hit vast regions. Can your employees work from home? What will your business do to in case of fire, flood or loss? How confident are you that you can recover your vital data tomorrow, should the need arise?
Is your hardware starting to age?
Hard drives fail, this is a fact of life, and this is also why manufacturers quote a mean time before failure (MTBF). Control-Q can perform hard drive analysis and reconditioning to map out or even recondition bad sectors before they become a problem. Already got a problem? Give us a call, it's probably not too late!
Are ALL your applications licensed?
Control-Q can provide the means to move your desktops, servers and applications from expensive and proprietary platforms onto FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) operating systems and applications. Database, office solutions, web servers, file and print servers, and many more applications can be run on software with no fees or licenses, and often faster and more securely than commercial offerings. We can train your existing staff to install, support and maintain it as well.
Is your Web Site a little dated?
Control-Q believes that your web site speaks volumes about your company. By focusing on content and performance rather than flashy animations, you can get your message across in a quick and meaningful way with our high-bandwidth solutions. Don't waste your best opportunity to impress a potential client with needless delays, complex navigation and download 'dead' time.
Are your Software needs evolving?
Control-Q can help you determine what your needs really are, and how to fulfill them in a practical and the most cost-effective way. We can help you meet the challenges of technological change. By understanding how your business really works, you can proceed to make it better.
Need new software, but feel a little out of your depth?
Control-Q can represent your interests in obtaining third party software, assist with your requirements analysis, requests for proposal, and in evaluating tenders.
Need a custom solution?
Control-Q can design and implement the software you need to perform any function you desire, whether you want to implement a special inventory managment system and publish it to the Internet, or a specialized backup and recovery program, or even a facilities management system, we can help.
Got an idea you'd like to try?
Control-Q is well versed in agile development, and can quickly deliver high quality prototype applications using modern GUI techniques on Windows, Unix, web based solutions or open systems platforms.
Can you hear me now?
Control-Q can help you establish your own Email or Web server, integrate your Facsimile with your Email, share an internet portal, protect your network against spam, viruses and unauthorized access, connect a remote office securely, or analyse your existing infrastructure for bottlenecks and problem hot-spots.
Tired of having an operating system vendor dictate your capital spending budget?
Control-Q can help you determine whether Open Source software might be able to meet the challenge of your office workplace, and even help to get you started with a Linux desktop or a BSD server of your own. You've heard all the hype, now is the time to determine whether the reality truly lives up to the legend!
