The No Compromise IT Solution for the SMB Market

SAINT CHARLES, IL – May 25th, 2011 – WEBIT Services, Inc., a leading Illinois based Managed Technology Services Provider, is pleased to be the first such company to offer the new Intel AppUp℠ for Small Business Service as a part of WEBIT’s technology service offering, iCloudWork℠.

“This is a unique service offering that gives businesses the current office technology they need, without the hassles and entry barriers of large upfront costs and ongoing upgrade fees.” said Eric Rieger, President of WEBIT Services, Inc. “We’ve partnered with Intel on this platform because we believe it provides the best features of cloud services in terms of scalability and management with the reliability, security and performance of traditional LAN based networking systems. Intel has continually demonstrated its ability to deliver products and services that exceed their customers’ expectations and WEBIT is excited to help carry on that tradition.”

“Intel is excited to be launching this service into the Illinois marketplace with WEBIT,” said Bridget Karlin, General Manager, Intel Hybrid Cloud. “WEBIT’s business model and client relationships will help businesses in the Chicagoland area adopt this technology rapidly with a very affordable monthly subscription model.”

Karlin continues, “Staying current with software and hardware can be a daunting financial concern for businesses, but with the Intel Hybrid Cloud service offering, available through WEBIT’s iCloudWork, it is simple, affordable and easy.”

iCloudWork offers a comprehensive suite of technology and consulting services that blend current technology platforms with superior IT support services to help businesses leverage technology as an efficient contributor to the bottom line rather than another expense item. By including remote, telephone and onsite support services with 24×7 proactive monitoring, backup and disaster recovery systems and regular maintenance schedules, iCloudWork users gain all the benefits of a dedicated IT support center from a responsive and consistent local technology partner, at a predictable, cost-effective monthly price.

The iCloudWork platform is based on the Intel AppUp for Small Business service, which is a subscription-based software delivery model offered from hardware hosted on-site at the clients’ location. One of the immediate benefits will be that businesses can access software on a monthly, pay-as-you-grow service model, thus eliminating costly start-up and licensing fees. The Intel AppUp for Small Business Service software catalog offers a wide variety of applications from Industry leaders including Microsoft Exchange®, Microsoft Small Business Server®, Vembu StorGrid®, Astaro Internet Security® and many others.
