Cloud Based Voice Over IP
Voice over Internet Protocol services allow you to make voice calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line. VoIP services will convert your voice into a digital signal that travels over the Internet. If you call a regular phone number, the signal is converted to a regular telephone signal before reaching the destination. VoIP can allow you to make a call directly from a computer, a special VoIP phone, or a traditional phone connected to a special adapter.
Our VoIP services offer features and services that are not available with a traditional phone.
Bergman Consulting Services offers Hosted Exchange, file storage, Central-based Antivirus management, and offsite backup solutions for any-sized business. Whether you are not ready to host your own email, or you want to out-source certain aspects of your IT infrastructure. We have the expertise and in-house capabilities to handle those needs for you.
Offsite Backup / Disaster Recovery
There are many dangers in business, but few as scary as losing all of your data. Consider that studies show 70% of businesses that suffer a serious data loss are typically out of business within two years.
There are many points of failure for backup. The most common reason for loss of data is hardware failure, but only because the backup strategy was not sound. A hardware failure SHOULD be the easiest loss of data to recover from. The problem is that the majority of the time backups require human intervention (changing tapes, or removable media). Even if the employee is diligent, the tape may not get changed on a holiday, and this can cause a schedule to fail, and in some case cause a backup job to not run for months.
Finally, the vast majority of businesses who ARE backing up their data are only backing it up locally. This can provide some protection, but not against the most serious threats. Take natural disasters. If the building burns down with the backups inside, how would your business recover? Another major threat is a relatively new threat, and that is "ransomware". If you are not familiar with that term, it is time for you to google it. Ransomware has become one of the most serious threats to data in the World today. The best way to protect yourself from that threat is offsite backup.
Bergman Consulting Services offers periodic snapshots (typically every hour, but we can customize that to fit your needs). With those snapshots we can recover your data back to before the ransomware infection. We can also recover your data from being lost in a natural disaster, get your business back up quickly, and only having lost anything between the last snapshot and the time the disaster occurred.
By partnering with Rapid Recovery from Quest, we can offer one of the most advanced backup solutions on the market today!
Many people hate the idea of dealing with voice and data providers. They know their Internet is slower than they might like, but who provides the best service, while still being reliable. The answer is not always apparent, as each provider will want to sell you on their products.
Bergman Consulting Services has agent agreements with most of the major telecommunications providers in St. Louis and can give you an unbiased breakdown of what will work best for your company, while hopefully saving you money as well.
We can analyze your current telephone bills, and more often than not, find ways to save you money every month. On top of dealing with the telcom companies, we are the local vendor who will actually make the connections from the provider's handoff to your equipment. What could be simpler than that?

Bergman Consulting Services has years of experiencing moving IT infastructure for businesses. Moving can be an exhausting process even excluding having to move all of your servers, computers, printers, etc. Not to mention making sure the new space is optimally setup, will the HVAC be adequate to keep your equipment cool and humidity low?

We can take care of any low voltage wiring needs and work with contractors to make sure the space is move-in ready.
