Wayne Randall, Jr., Founder
As the business world is emerging from recession, various organizations have begun to set their vision toward geographical expansion. However, managing the expansion plans are fraught with risks that should be dealt with careful implementation of adequate technologies. The vital challenge for the organizations here is enabling secure and efficient access of their data from multiple locations. Headquartered in Memphis, TN, NexTek LLC, a Microsoft SPLA (Services Provider License Agreement) partner, provides professionally maintained server environments that supports an organization’s vital operations spread across different geographies—enabling the organizations to access all their data from a single hosted server. The Microsoft partnership has allowed NexTek to offer various end-to-end management services. In addition to hosting Microsoft products, the company can also provide all of the infrastructure associated with connecting back to NexTek datacenters. This includes network management, security, firewalls, switches, and Internet connection monitoring. “We convert a customer network and then host all applications in the Cloud we have built,” says Wayne Randall, Jr., the Founder of NexTek. “We empower our clients to be free from the complexities of their resources and thus facilitate them to focus on their other important aspects of the business and not IT.”NexTek delivers the perfect flexibility in its services as the company charge just a monthly fee for any Microsoft product.

If a customer has 100 employees in one month and 200 in next, they will not experience any sort of difficulty as their license is based on number of users each month

“If a customer has 100 employees in one month and 200 in next, they will not experience any sort of difficulty as their license is based on number of users each month,” he adds.

Due to the agile services of NexTek, the company has been a knight in the shining armor for many firms in situations like recession— the time when organizations look for cheaper option for their network and data management. To meet the demands of the industry, NexTek deployed a centralized solution for its clients, built out from its datacenters that include Hosted Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL based applications integrating into their remote desktop service offering. In addition to these services, the company has also integrated two factor authentication into all of its remote desktop service offerings. “Whenever our clients open new offices or branches, we connect them back to our datacenters easily and securely,” says Wayne. As clients only have to pay for what resources they are using, they are able to manifest exponential growth in their business while not worrying about technological challenges associated with expanding their businesses. In one such instance, a real estate giant knocked the door of NexTek to simplify their expansion in different locations. NexTek gathered the entire organizations data and rolled out 15+ load balanced remote desktop servers integrated with Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, Microsoft Office and other applications the customer utilizes into all in one easy to use solution. This enabled the client to work from anywhere and anytime, securely. The flexibility of the solution encouraged the client to further use it for their expansions in their next 12 offices as well. Going forward, NexTek is keeping a close eye on the Microsoft’s evolving product landscape, concerning cloud-centric platforms and solutions. The company will focus on providing the best level of offerings built around the forthcoming products, keeping their integrity level intact. “We want to put the highest level of priority on customer service, and support our product offerings, leading us not to aggressive growth, but to gradual growth,” concludes Wayne.
