What are Adivi Managed Services?
Adivi Managed Services are a way to enable small businesses to leverage enterprise level IT services and technology without the burden of ownership.

The traditional small business IT consulting services model is fragmented, as different experts have trouble coordinating and communicating with each other, even though all that matters to you is a smooth IT solution. As your one stop service provider, Adivi Corporation leverages the power of our existing network infrastructure. All you do is lease a portion and enjoy the benefit.

How does the Adivi Managed Services program work?
Adivi Managed Services acts as an extension of Adivi's IT department. The presence of Adivi Managed Services allows our technology and personnel to provide an enterprise-class network infrastructure through the Internet for only a small monthly fee. For less than the cost of hiring one IT support person you can have all the features of a room filled with servers operating under the careful watch of Adivi's crew of engineers, administrators and support personnel. The Reduction Server acts as translator between your network and ours to handle all the business over the wire as if our network were physically inside your office.

What about security?
On the surface it may seem as if you are opening your network up to be “visited” by parties outside your organization. Firstly, know that Adivi Managed Services can be configured with a “programmable level of paranoia” to allow as much or as little visibility from our data center as you choose. Some of our clients choose to begin their relationship with Adivi with what we call a “hands off” configuration – where we have no visibility or control over the client network at all. But soon they realize the benefits of setting up a trust relationship with us to allow for Adivi to keep things running smoothly around the clock. Often when organizations attempt to keep everyone out of their network, the result is they do not know where their security may already be compromised. In most cases, it’s better to allow a trusted party into your environment, one who will be accountable for keeping all un-trusted parties out. Only through this type of structured arrangement can you be sure that your network is truly secure.

How do Adivi Managed Services reduce expense?
Let’s use the example of a company that wants to have a professional, secure e-mail server within their IT department. The hardware to run such a server might typically run somewhere in the neighborhood of two thousand dollars, as would the software. Before hiring a professional with the appropriate skill set or even pulling a current employee away from their existing duties you have spent $4000. Even though they only have a small number of employees, they still must buy equipment otherwise capable of supporting thousands of users. With Adivi Managed Services, this asset has only been purchased once but becomes leveraged by a large number of overall users. The net result is that the company enjoys the same benefits as if they owned the device for only a tiny fraction of the cost, usually a few dollars per month.

The value of Adivi Managed Services becomes apparent after you consider similar investments for Web servers, application servers, network applications, virus software, databases, backup drives, and all the other technologies typically required for a traditional IT department. It’s so cost-prohibitive to build the whole network in-house that many companies have decided to do without. But with Adivi Managed Services, you lease a segmented portion of our infrastructure that looks, feels and acts as if it were your own.

Who supports my network users?
Adivi not only provides the network to you, but watches over it to ensure that your overall computing experience is as smooth as possible. We are alerted to trouble signs such as network viruses, failing printers, or a hard drive that has run out of space. When any one of our thousands of pre-configured and custom-configured error conditions appears within your network, we receive an alert which is then relayed to the client or our network engineer for preemptive maintenance or rectification. Subscribers receive a monthly statement itemizing the multitude of administrative tasks we have been performing for you throughout the month.

One of our greatest features is the Adivi Managed Services help desk. So many corporate computer users are reluctant to ask for help because they feel that their problem is not “important” enough to distract their IT personnel from their other duties or to schedule help from an external contractor. Our help desk and support forums provide many ways for users to request and obtain immediate answers – and it’s all included in the basic subscription.

No Commitment?
That’s right. If at any time you feel that you are not benefiting from our relationship you may simply elect not to renew and that’s it. Clients appreciate our services and know that they could not possibly provide similar functionality at even many times the budget levels. Once you begin benefiting from the lavish service offering of the Adivi Managed Services program, you’ll wonder why anyone would build an IT infrastructure on their own.
