Cutting IT bills without cutting quality

Online business

Getting your business online is the first step into a world of new opportunities.

With more start-ups turning to the web to grow their companies, having effective IT systems in place is almost as important as having the eureka moment to start the business in the first place.

Not only are websites your shop window to the world, but a modern start-up will undoubtedly need a secure email system to communicate with clients and customers as well as phone lines and secure file-sharing services.


This can seem a bit daunting at first. According to the British Government’s Business is Great campaign, your website ‘is the best way of telling your customers more about your business’ and, with a multitude of companies offering different solutions, it can be confusing for start-ups to know what resources they need.

However, there is a simpler solution – ask an external company, such as Penta, to manage all of your web hosting and IT needs. Instead of needing to deal with several different suppliers, you can get on with running your business while Penta manages the back-end systems.


And when starting your own business, many entrepreneurs struggle to find the time to properly manage all the complex, additional tasks around their business.

Speaking to Forbes, Karlene Agard, senior risk and value management consultant at projects consultants ARAVUN, said her best tip for start-ups was to find solutions which help them dedicate more time to their business.

She says: “Time is the only resource we can’t get more of, so treat it with care. Automation and outsourcing will enable you to work on your business and not just in it.”


As well as saving time, Penta estimates its integrated systems can reduce IT bills for businesses by up to 40 per cent, which could make the difference between being in the red and the black.
This is a point which Farhad Khalilnia, Penta’s founder and CEO, is keen to stress.

“There are clear economic, security, stability and availability benefits to outsourcing IT services. Studies have shown businesses have made their all-important data 1,000 times more secure by outsourcing their IT services to a trusted third party, all while making financial savings of 30-40 per cent.

“This is because third party providers, such as Penta, have the capacity to implement industry leading, bank-grade security at a predictable, scalable cost to the client.”

Penta can tailor packages to your exact needs and specifications, invoicing you for what you use as you go along, meaning your IT bills can be scaled up, or down, as and when you require it.

As with the rest of Penta’s offerings, security is of top concern; Penta’s email system is optimised with full redundancy, unlimited storage, anti-spam and anti-virus, web and mobile access to keep hackers away from your correspondence with customers and clients.

And if you are sharing sensitive information, Penta’s secure file sharing service can ensure your documents reach their destinations without fail thanks to its encrypted software.
