Houston Managed Service Provider Designs Cybersecurity Compliance Solutions, Offering Proactive IT Management and on-Demand Support

LogoAs a premier Houston IT consulting company, AVATAR Managed Services understands that no cookie-cutter solution can be applied across all businesses that need information technology as a critical part of day-to-day operations. Every company is unique, offering a set of challenges and opportunities as the business changes and the supporting technology tools evolve. A proactive IT strategy is considered important as risk can be reduced by planning to stay ahead of cyber security threats, hardware obsolescence, and changes in regulations. Another major benefit in adopting a proactive approach rather than a reactive stance is that budgeting decisions can be made and change can be managed in a controlled manner. There may be times of the year that are particularly busy for a business, and change during that critical period may need to be minimized as any downtime could affect access to data, a delivery schedule, or cause confusion if the change is introducing or modifying a process that is key. Planning ahead, often months ahead, allows the client to pinpoint optimal times when changes can be carried out, often considering 'what if' scenarios in case a change fails and then has to be backed out.

Catamount Funding Offers Houston Freight Factoring, Financing Freight Bills Through Transportation Factoring to Ease Cash Flow Challenges

LogoCatamount Funding, one of the premier Factoring companies in Houston TX, offers invoice factoring services to help clients grow their businesses and operate with a healthy financial balance sheet. Factoring freight bills is a major part of day-to-day operations, whereby transportation factoring, or trucking factoring as it is also known, converts accounts receivables into almost instant cash. The transaction involves converting an unpaid invoice into cash, and the cost is a small discount on the total sum. In addition to receiving funds quicker, the ongoing management of the unpaid invoice transfers to the factoring company. The factoring company then takes ownership of the follow-up actions to ensure the funds are received as expected when the invoice becomes due. Accounts receivables and unpaid invoices are common across some types of product delivery or service where delivery to the end customer is agreed with payment terms allowing for a delay before payment. This delay can range anywhere from a few days to up to three months. The cost of delivering the product or service is paid upfront, so there is an outlay that will not be canceled out by receiving the income for some time. In addition to the money being outstanding, keeping track of upcoming invoices can be a time-consuming and stressful chore. Ironically, the more successful a company is, the more financial stress it can be under as it builds up a larger sum of accounts receivables. Until the invoices are paid, the outlay and delivery costs deplete the cash available to spend. Even for business owners who plan weeks or months in advance, there will likely be a mix of predictable costs, like payroll, rent, insurance, and taxes, as well as unpredictable costs like a rise in gas prices, vehicle repairs, or the cost of hiring new staff and training them to a point where they can be productive. One major advantage of factoring outstanding invoices is the short lead time required if unexpected circumstances do arise. The application process for invoice factoring with Catamount Funding is simple, with an online application available from the website. Finance approval decisions can be expected within 48 hours. Selling invoices that are due in the future is a simple process, and when factoring invoices with Catamount Funding, a subset of outstanding invoices can be selected.

Houston Managed Service Provider Designs Cybersecurity Compliance Solutions, Offering Proactive IT Management and Tailored IT Roadmaps

LogoAs a premier Houston IT consulting company, AVATAR Managed Services offers a comprehensive range of services to support a business with its information technology needs, ranging from cybersecurity compliance through to a strategy to move away from a data center and beyond. Every company is unique and yet increasingly businesses across multiple business sectors have IT-related themes in common, two of which are dependence on information technology in order to carry out day-to-day operations and the need to protect and safeguard client data from cyberattacks and attempts to steal that data. A proactive IT strategy helps a business budget for the future with step-by-step enhancements to keep the company ahead of cyber threats while simultaneously upgrading infrastructure and harnessing cutting-edge IT tools and programs to automate repetitive tasks and monitoring. As Houston cybersecurity solution providers, AVATAR Managed Services have extensive experience across industry sectors including law firms, manufacturing companies, healthcare facilities, banking institutions, professional services, construction, engineering, energy, transport, and more. The starting point is usually a baseline IT assessment which AVATAR has developed and tuned over time to gauge the overall health of existing infrastructure technology performance and effectiveness. These indicators are quantitative and can be repeated over time to demonstrate the results of change and return on investment. A holistic approach is essential, with staff processes and procedures fully in scope for review and development. At times of stress in particular, after a cyber attack has been detected for instance, AVATAR's Computer Incident Response Team assumes command of the next actions to be taken, mitigating threats and minimizing risk moving forward in terms of cyber security, staff training, and reputation management. With IT operations a critical pillar of many businesses and with the need to have an online presence at all times, AVATARs security operations center operates 24x7x365, covering all business hours, weekends, and holidays. Once the assessment has been translated into a roadmap and plans, the next phase is implementation. Progress can be measured and plans should always be reviewed to ensure the option initially mapped out is still the best, this is because in the rapidly changing landscape of IT, new products may be launched or prices may fluctuate. Following the implementation of improvements and even after gaining cybersecurity compliance, ongoing maintenance and proactive enhancements are a sound investment for the future of the business.

LogoAs a premier Houston IT consulting company, AVATAR Managed Services understands how a proactive IT strategy and a clear roadmap can help reduce operational risks as changes are made and facilitate budget planning. Information technology now permeates many business processes across all industry sectors, keeping data secure and available at all times can be the difference between winning new customers and earning their trust and losing existing clients and reputation damage. As Houston cybersecurity solution providers, AVATAR Managed Services works with clients to protect data. With an ever-increasing range of cyber security threats to contend with, prevention is always the preferred path. If a cyber attack is successful then the mitigation could be costly in terms of time lost, money spent, and a compromised reputation. As well as incorporating the smartest tools to help detect and counteract cyber threats, staff should all be trained to recognize the warning signs that an attack is imminent and should know exactly how to respond if a suspected cyber attack is confirmed. AVATAR Managed Services looks at all aspects of IT, from the platforms, servers, network protocols, maintenance patches, and hardware, to the processes, documentation, and communication that dovetail to make the IT architecture fit for purpose and suitable to deliver the expected return on investment.
