Need help with an upcoming project? Let’s work together to get it done on time and on budget – no exceptions.
At Zen Techworks, we understand that regardless of the type of project you're working on, "Murphy's Law" very much applies. When troubles crop up or things get more difficult than you were prepared for, you need dependable support that you know you can turn to - not someone who you have difficulty even getting on the phone. This is a large part of the reason why we offer a wide range of one-time project and consulting services for you to choose from depending on your needs. Whether you're talking about a major infrastructure upgrade, strategic IT planning or something far smaller in scale, we've got 20+ years of experience helping with all of these things and more.
Just a few of the processes we've developed to help businesses include:
Holistic Technology Assessments
Are your current technology solutions optimized for your business? Let’s find out.
Whether you’re still running your own in-house IT staff or you’ve outsourced everything to a managed IT services provider doesn’t actually matter – a technology assessment can always add a significant amount of value by giving you access to a trusted, experienced and insightful second opinion on both your current setup and your future goals.
IT can and should be a revenue generator for every business – but the only way you’ll get to that point is if that technology is properly aligned with your long-term organizational goals.
Our Zen Techworks technology assessments therefore begin with us getting to know your current paint points, problems and future goals on an intimate level. After an on-site survey to fully understand your existing infrastructure, we’ll have everything we need to connect those two dots – allowing your IT to act as the bridge that gets you from “where you are” to “where you want to be,” all in the most efficient and cost-effective ways possible.
Email and Cloud Migration Services
Embrace the cloud with Microsoft Office 365/Azure or Gsuite/Google Cloud.
The fact of the matter is that for many small businesses, it simply no longer makes sense to maintain your own on-premise environment any longer. Not only is it often prohibitively expensive, but it’s also difficult to “get it right” on an ongoing basis – and rest assured that the consequences of “getting it wrong” are ones that you absolutely do not want to find yourself dealing with.
The team at Zen Techworks can help with any type of cloud migration you’d like, whether you’re interested in moving to Office365/Azure to Gsuite or even your own virtual server in the cloud. If you’d like us to conduct the entire migration, terrific – we can do exactly that in the most efficient way possible.
If you want us to work side-by-side with your own internal staff, we can do that, too. We’ve handled countless migrations over the years of all shapes and sizes and we know how to avoid potential issues and guarantee success, no exceptions.
Workstation and Server Upgrades
Don't let "End of Life" for your systems catch you off guard.
Generally speaking, it’s recommended that most businesses upgrade their workstations and servers every three to five years. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize just how many challenges they’re creating for themselves by failing to stick to this timeline. Old equipment isn’t just slower in a day-to-day sense. It’s likely leading to the types of usage problems and unexpected periods of downtime that are negatively impacting your ability to work.
At Zen Techworks, we’ll come in and evaluate every aspect of your current setup – including desktops, laptops, clients, servers and more. Once we know what you’re dealing with, we’ll be able to put together the unique and comprehensive replacement plan you need to cycle out all of that “end of life equipment” so that you can easily and cost effectively replace it with equipment that works for your goals instead of against them.
We can provide specific hardware recommendations, detailed cost estimates and more. Everything will be carefully documented so that you’re always aware of exactly what decisions are being made and, most importantly, why. Once you’re ready to begin, we can even complete your upgrade after hours to guarantee that any business interruptions are as minimal as possible – if they occur at all.
Desktop and Server Virtualization
Set up a complete cloud-based environment that can be accessed anywhere at any time.
Desktop and server virtualization is a decision that brings with it a wide range of advantages that cannot be ignored. Not only does it improve the overall flexibility and scalability of your business, but it also makes your environment far easier to manage – all while adding a new layer of redundancy as well. Whether you’re thinking about VDI or virtualization using VMware or Hyper VV, we’ll be by your side every step of the way to make sure you have everything you need to generate the outcomes you want.
Disaster Recovery and Data Recovery
Did you lose critical data? Don't worry - we'll do everything in our power to recover it.
Losing critical data can be devastating to any business – and at Zen Techworks, we want to make sure that this is something you don’t have to worry about any longer. In the worst case scenario, you've lost your critical data AND any backups that you had. That still doesn't mean that your data is gone for good - there are a number of steps we can take to help restore it. There are no guarantees, but we'll do everything in our power to get it all back.
IT Project Planning and Management
A successful project requires a successful plan to work from.
The team at Zen Techworks has over 15 years of experience helping clients with just about every type of project you can think of - from far-reaching strategic IT planning to short-term infrastructure upgrades and everything in between. Together, we’ll help you oversee existing projects (and come up with new ones) to give you the leadership you need from dealing with vendors, budgeting and more to make sure your IT project is a success.
IT Relocation Services
Your new infrastructure, just as effective as your old infrastructure.
Moving to a new office is already stressful – worrying about getting your infrastructure from “point A” to “point B” in one piece isn’t something you should have to add on top of it. We’ll oversee everything – including working with vendors – to make sure you can focus on the things that are most important of all.
Network Assessments. We begin by understanding the problems you’ve been going through. Once we have a “big picture” look at your environment, we’ll be able to provide you with recommendations and cost estimates to address every issue we find.
Because all businesses should know the joy of a network that works exactly the way it's supposed to.
A network is ultimately only as strong as its configuration. An optimized network supports your people and their workflows, while a sluggish network makes it harder to do their jobs. We'll map your entire network to uncover any and all opportunities for improvement that exist. We'll document all of your configurations so that all best practices are easily repeatable by your own people. We'll also help you uncover any hidden risks that may be present in terms of cyber security and more.
Network Design and Upgrade Services
Improving Your Speed and Reliability Means Improving Your Business.
As is true with workstation and server upgrades, your network design isn't something that you "do once and forget about." Upgrading networking equipment, cabling and other assets is always important because it not only makes sure that you're using the latest and most reliable resources, but that your network can continue to grow as your business does, too.
The team at Zen Techworks will evaluate every aspect of your networking setup to make sure that your infrastructure is optimized for your people, their processes and their workflow. In terms of opportunities for improvement, we can offer specific recommendations, cost estimates and more - all to help guarantee that your network always does what it needs to, no matter what.
IT Security Assessments and Employee Training
When it comes to cyber security, the best defense is a good offense.
From emerging threats to compliance-related issues, our custom IT security assessment will uncover everything you need to navigate the dangerous 21st century digital world that we’re now living in. We'll analyze your entire infrastructure so that we know where your weakest points and vulnerabilities are, putting us in an excellent position to help you take care off them. At the same time, we’ll also train your employees on the results of our assessment – thus putting them in the best position to act as your first line of defense in terms of cyber security.
