Emtec Enhances Managed Services Center

Feb 11, 2003, 00:00 ET from Emtec, Inc.

    MT. LAUREL, N.J., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Emtec, Inc., a leading East
 Coast IT solutions integration firm, has upgraded their 6,000 square-foot
 Managed Services Center in its Manhattan office complex.
     The center now features more than $1 million worth of new equipment and
 facilities including software by HP OpenView on powerful Sun Microsystems Sun
 Fire and Netra Servers. Staffed by highly trained and certified professionals,
 the center offers Emtec customers 24/7 Monitoring of critical business
 systems, Help Desk, and Technical Dispatch services.
     "Companies who lack the staff or budgets necessary to ensure continuation
 of business service on a 24-hour basis can have peace of mind knowing their
 networks are professionally monitored, managed and protected by Emtec," said
 Guy H. Fessended, Emtec's Executive Vice President, Northeast Region. "This is
 attractive to a full range of organizations, including firms with
 sophisticated payroll systems or those doing business over the Internet, as
 well as municipalities with 911 systems," he added.
     The Emtec Managed Services Center features three significant service
 offerings: Help Desk services, Technical services and Network Monitoring. The
 Help Desk is staffed by ITIL certified and trained professionals. ITIL
 (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) outlines best practices and
 industry standards for service providers.
     Emtec also provides quality engineers that can be dispatched from the Help
 Desk if the need arises. Service can range from reactive break-fix support to
 a fully managed support service including on-site personnel, warranty support,
 project management, and triage services.
     The center's Network Monitoring services include detection of network
 failures, evaluation of system thresholds and performance, and full
 integration with Emtec's dispatch services for speedy problem resolution.
     Emtec customers can use a toll-free number, 1-866-Emtec-911, to reach the
 Help Desk, as well as Technical Dispatch and Network Monitoring services.
     "What differentiates Emtec from other Service Providers, noted Fessenden:
 "is the breadth of services we can provide. Emtec's clients benefit from not
 only from having the finest in System Monitoring and Help Desk services --
 comparable to those used by the world's largest corporations -- but also
 benefit from the availability of a large staff of superbly trained IT
 professionals on-site, ready to be dispatched to meet any situation.  Not many
 organizations have the skills and experience to provide all three of these
 quality offerings."
     An Open House event will be held at Emtec's Managed Services Center at 880
 Third Avenue, 12th floor, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, February 21st to
 display the new and improved center to Emtec's clients and prospects. Among
 scheduled activities will be a demonstration of Emtec's Network Monitoring and
 Help Desk services.
