In the era of “do more with less,” GoBeyondIT, an innovative provider of IT solutions for small and medium businesses, today announced the availability of the Hosted Hourly Desktop. The offering provides clients with a fully hosted and secure Microsoft Desktop solution at tiered pricing based on usage.

The offering is ideal for the growing business market, where business owners must constantly evaluate how to purchase and manage technology with maximum flexibility and efficiency. What the Hosted Hourly Desktop provides is a way to completely outsource IT so that employees only need an Internet connection to access a secure, Microsoft Office desktop with all the applications and support they need. What’s more, clients can “right size” their technology spend, purchasing hosted access in quantities that make sense for specific job functions.

“The best salespeople are in the field 75 percent of the time, so there is no reason to spend money on technology as if they sit at their desks 100 percent of the time,” said GoBeyondIT CEO Rick Crane. “After six months of research, we determined that 50 percent of system time is idle. That means there’s waste. And where there’s waste, there’s room to save money.”

With the Hosted Hourly Desktop, businesses pay as little as $69 per user per month, and can choose from three packages: the 40-hour Desktop, the 80-hour Desktop and the Unlimited Desktop.

Patriot Electric, a 95-employee company based in the Baltimore area, recently turned to the Hosted Hourly Desktop to save money on technology while that its systems were up to date and secure.

“The Hosted Hourly Desktop fits my company’s work style,” said Talbot Watkins, President of Patriot Electric. “GoBeyondIT cares about how we do business, how we perform our most important daily tasks and then finding the highest quality match in terms of technology resources.”

Select Hosted Hourly Desktop features include:

  • Microsoft Hosted Windows Desktops
  • Microsoft Office 2007
  • Microsoft SharePoint for office file sharing
  • QuickBooks or Peachtree hosting with DataVault
  • Microsoft Exchange E-mail via web mail
  • iPhone and BlackBerry Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync
  • Access from anywhere, on any device, anytime
