Firstnumber.co.uk Aims To Help Small Businesses Recover From The Recession

A UK based cheap international call provider has pledged to help small businesses recover from the recession by raising awareness about the benefits of direct dial access codes.

Firstnumber.co.uk Aims To Help Small Businesses Recover From The Recession

Firstnumber.co.uk currently offers over 250 access codes that allow consumers and businesses to make cheap international calls at a heavily discounted rate.

Firstnumber.co.uk spokesperson Andy Steele hopes the service will allow small businesses to save money whilst recovering from the recession.

“The recession has been a tough time for everyone let alone smaller businesses and especially those that are only in their first few years of trading. Undoubtedly, business owners will be looking for ways to save money and in doing so can often overlook basics such as utilities.

Using an access code is not only simple to do but could easily slice hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds off your phone bill.”

Direct dial access codes work by placing a designated code in front of the number you wish to call.

The code then applies a discounted rate allowing users to call destinations such as Argentina, Canada, Thailand and Argentina for as little as 2 pence per minute.

Ways in which businesses could stand to save money couldn’t come at a better time.

Finance experts are predicting some 28,000 small to medium businesses will go bust during 2010 which follows a jump of 220per cent in the number of firms declaring bankruptcy the year before.

Although small businesses will be tightening their belts in some areas and scaling back in others, Andy Steele hopes that the flexibility of services such as Firstnumber.co.uk means telecoms remain affordable and supportive of the economic upturn.

“With direct dial access codes, users can call both mobiles and landlines. This means businesses aren’t pigeon holed into calling one or the other which is often the restriction when trying to save money.

Colocation America Announces Emergency Protection for Natural Disasters and Network Threats

Colocation America, a leading colocation server hosting company, announced today its redundant emergency protection systems for businesses and organizations of all sizes that utilize colocation and dedicated server hosting services. Colocation America’s redundant systems have protected businesses through adverse weather conditions this winter, earthquakes and other natural disasters, and network threats that consume and destroy network resources.

“We are seeing businesses get harsh treatment from the elements recently, and in that situation you want to be 100% sure your business can survive the most devastating conditions,” says Michael Trunkett, President at Colocation America.“With protected colocation servers storing a company’s essential data, you can stay on your feet and serve customers as usual, without interruption from natural disasters or conditions that could cause catastrophic failure.”

Businesses of all sizes need redundant emergency protection to safeguard financial information, employee information, data on projects in progress, sales and distribution information, and customer databases. Losing this data can set a company back for months or years, or it may not recover. Colocation America provides redundant emergency protection systems at all times as part of their colocation hosting services and dedicated hosting services.

“Without accurate customer information, the business-customer relationship erodes and companies can lose their competitive advantage,” says Trunkett. “In this economic environment that could be fatal, so our data centers secure our customers’ data with the highest level of both physical and virtual protection.”

Colocation America colocation facilities have a comprehensive suite of monitoring systems in place. Manned ground floor operation centers actively monitor security, fire protection, climate control and power systems. Monitoring of climate examines chillers, essential airflows, temperature, humidity and other environmental conditions. Individual customer power consumption is maintained with UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems and backup generators.

“Highly trained technicians and engineers monitor our data centers around the clock, 24-7-365,” says Trunkett. “If a malicious threat occurs, or any change in environmental conditions, our specialized pre-action mechanisms kick in to prevent damage before it can occur.”

Colocation America provides clients with a secure data center environment that ensures their critical systems and the data they contain are protected under a range of conditions. Colocation and dedicated hosting customers interested in protecting their business data are encouraged to visit the Colocation America website at www.ColocationAmerica.com for more information on Colocation America’s emergency systems.

Colocation America Improves Business Performance While Lowering IT Costs

Colocation America, a leading colocation server hosting company, announced today its success in reducing IT expenses for clients by providing data center colocation hosting services, security protection, and continuous up time.

“Small and mid-size businesses often settle for a data center that doesn’t meet their needs because of the related costs of energy and cooling, and adequate security,” said Shawn Jacobs, Director of Marketing at Colocation America.“Bandwidth is another huge expense, and most companies only need all their bandwidth a fraction of the time.”

To alleviate an IT department’s prohibitive costs, Colocation America’s hosting services include multiple power and cooling paths, 24/7 biometric security, and virtually unlimited bandwidth transmission through upstream providers. Unexpected costs associated with in-house data centers such as losing data and experiencing downtime due to bad weather or transitioning to a new system are alleviated with Colocation America’s security, management and data storage services.

“Losing customer data is a tragedy no company should experience so we take every precaution necessary to ensure our customers’ servers are online and available,” said Jacobs. “Colocation America prides itself on delivering peace of mind for every business we host, especially during natural disasters, expansion, or network threats. Our emergency generators and firewall protection enable us to guarantee 99.99% up time, so our customers can rest easy and focus on their business.”

Colocation America’s expert team and employee training programs reduce costs for colocation hosting customers by eliminating the need for a company to hire its own specialized engineers. In-house data centers experience downtime when upgrading to allow for business growth. In addition, investing in technology for anticipated future growth significantly raises IT costs. Colocation America keeps those costs down with expansive data center space and custom server options.

“At Colocation America, creating a state of the art, secure and fast data transmission system is only part of the equation,” says Jacobs. “By understanding the needs of your business, we keep costs manageable for every company regardless of size.”

Colocation America continues its quest as one of the fastest growing colocation server hosting providers in the nation. Customers looking for a reliable colocation hosting provider are encouraged to visit colocationamerica.com for move-in specials, data center locations, POPs, security, reliability, and pricing information.
