For many business owners, keeping up with technology is a distraction at best and a nightmare at worst, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Think Technologies Group offers all-inclusive outsourced information technology services through a partnership business model, building relationships with their clients and understanding their network requirements, all for a flat monthly rate.
Think Technologies Group’s all-inclusive managed solutions allow business owners and professionals to predictably budget annual IT costs. The old support model of break-fix is unpredictable, because you never know what will fail or the associated repair costs, not to mention that when a network isn’t monitored and maintained, it generally costs more to fix a problem after the fact than before it happens.
“There are business owners who spend $100,000 on their network infrastructure and don’t have a plan to manage their investment,” says Matthew Villella, Director of Sales and Marketing and Co-Founder for Think Technologies Group. “A network is like a car—it needs maintenance. It’s been proven that a maintained network lasts longer, works better and is more reliable. Think Technologies Group proactively manages your network in real time, which allows us to prevent problems before they happen.”
To complement their Managed Solutions, Think Technologies Group also offers the Think Cloud Hosting Solution, providing infrastructure and software on a per-user basis. The Think Cloud Hosting Solution allows your organization to outsource the equipment and software used to support your operations. Through the Internet, you can access your organization’s network from anywhere on any device, including iPads and Macs, with a virtualized desktop, in which every computer operates as a completely self-contained unit with its own operating system, peripherals and applications.
Overall expenses are reduced because resources can be shared and allocated to users on an as-needed basis. The integrity of user information is improved because all data is maintained and backed up in the data center. Conflicts in software are minimized by reducing the total number of programs stored on any given machine. Even though resources are shared, all users can customize and modify their desktops to meet their specific needs.
Think Technologies Group takes all the mystery out of this new technology. After evaluating your business’s current IT Infrastructure, requirements and future needs, Think Technologies Group can create a plan that fits your operation and your budget. As always with Think Technologies Group, you pay just one fixed monthly rate and they take care of the rest. “We’re a consultant for our clients and help them grow their businesses,” says Chris Oleson, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder. “We can help them structure their technology in a way that is more reliable and scalable for growth.” If you’ve been hearing buzz about “The Cloud” and would like to know if your business can benefit from this new technology, give Think Technologies Group a call
In 2005, Oleson built a business based on the all-inclusive managed solution model that eventually grew into Ocala IT. Ocala IT’s first client, Gold Coast Equipment, was owned by Matthew Villella, and over the years the two developed a solid personal and professional relationship. At the beginning of 2011, Oleson and Villella entered into a partnership to rebrand Ocala IT into Think Technologies Group, using the same proven, all-inclusive managed solution model but adding a sizable investment for additional infrastructure and resources. By merging their business and technology backgrounds together, they feel it brings a unique and fresh perspective to the managed service provider industry.
Oleson started his career in the IT field in 2000 as a web developer in Marquette, Mich. While attending Northern Michigan University, where he studied computer information systems, Oleson maintained a number of small business networks. In 2004, he relocated to Central Florida and worked as a full-time IT manager, but he soon set out on his own and founded Ocala IT in 2005.
Villella brings 20 years of management and business ownership experience to Think Technologies Group, with 10 of those years as the owner of Gold Coast Equipment Corporation, an independent construction equipment rental company. Being in the equipment industry for 20 years has provided Villella with a deep understanding of what clients expect from customer service. He carries that knowledge into the managed service provider industry.
Patrick Killian, Operations Manager and Co-Founder, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Prior to joining Think, he spent more than 10 years as a branch and area manager for the Hertz Corporation, and served as VP of operations of Gold Coast Equipment Corporation. Killian brings 20 years of management experience to Think Technologies Group as operations manager.
Mike “Zeek” Zarek, Lead Engineer, is a Microsoft Certified Professional and Certified Sonicwall Security Administrator, and has been involved in the high-tech industry for 30 years. He graduated from the University Of Central Florida with a BA in Radio/TV and worked as the assistant program director for an Orlando-area radio station, where he was among the first in the market to use a computer to schedule daily programming. As a Unix systems administrator for a worldwide company, Zarek was responsible for more than 100 servers across three continents.
In summing up Think Technologies Groups’ services, Oleson says, “We take all your technology worries away and give you peace of mind. Whether your company has five computers or 500, we manage everything on your network or the Think Cloud, all for one flat monthly rate.”
When it comes to maintaining your company’s computer systems, think proactively with help and advice from Think Technologies Group.
