Professional Staff Management Selects Solutions4ebiz for Managed Hosting Service; Company’s Decision Part of Growing Trend to Outsource Management of Vital Business Technology
July 13, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsIndianapolis and Richmond, Indiana — Solutions4ebiz, an Indiana managed hosting and technology solutions provider, announced today that Professional Staff Management (PSM), a human resources solutions firm, has chosen Solutions4ebiz to securely host and manage several of its Web and application servers from a premier Midwest hosting facility in Carmel, Indiana. PSM and Solutions4ebiz completed the move from an in-house data center to the hosting facility in early spring.
The company’s decision is part of an increasingly common industry trend toward outsourcing components of the hosting, monitoring and maintenance functions to managed hosting providers such as Solutions4ebiz. Companies are choosing managed hosting providers for managing important technology hardware and applications, rather than building their own data centers and hiring IT staff to monitor servers and equipment round-the-clock.
PSM relies on the constant availability and security of its hosted HR information system, called HRx, a subscription-based application that allows companies to maintain employee information electronically in a reliable and secure environment. In addition, companies can process payroll, perform benefits administration, track applicants, manage employee time and attendance and perform other HR functions via the Web. Because customers’ information is both time-sensitive and confidential, HRx requires a secure facility, safe from fire, water damage, unauthorized access and other threats, as well as an environment that could ensure data availability 24/7/365. The company also sought a managed hosting provider that could monitor and maintain equipment round-the-clock and respond quickly to any issues.
Solutions4ebiz hosts the HRx equipment at a world-class data center in Carmel, which provides the most advanced security features and desired redundancies. Solutions4ebiz also implemented a dual firewall environment for PSM for an extra layer of security, and an intrusion protection system.
“Competing with the major hosted HR Information System providers requires us to have HRx in a world-class data center,” said Jeremy Smith, vice-president at PSM. “Managed hosting allows us to offer the most stable, secure environment for the HRx application. Solutions4ebiz provides us with that additional layer of support, allowing us to focus on interacting with and supporting our customers. We have great IT people in-house, but felt it was better to have our technology people focus more on application development and supporting the customers, and have Solutions4ebiz provide the managed hosting services.”
