Winter newsletter is out now.


It’s winter time; so why not put another log on the fire, get comfortable and read our latest newsletter…

Cloud Applications – Hosted Voice

In this edition we look at one of the more surprising applications that can be run from the cloud – Hosted Voice.  We’ll find out why one leading law firm chose Abtec’s Hosted Voice service and the benefits it will bring the organisation.

We’ve witnessed the recent storms cause chaos in the north of England and Scotland first hand; we support organisations and have employees across the north east and north west of England.  We’ve protected these organisations’ IT resources from the floods, and this has prompted us to issue a reminder to readers about keeping on top of their business continuity plans.

Also, we’ve seen another unwelcome visitor recently, phishing emails with macro enabled attachments.  Richard Pitman, one of our senior network engineers, offers advice on how to protect your organisation against these unwelcome visitors.

Happy reading!


High profile visitors to Abtec client

Story Homes, the executive home builder, received two high profile visits recently.

Both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor of the Exchequer made individual visits to our Carlisle based client.  We’ve been upgrading Story Homes’ IT and communications infrastructure as they move into their new headquarters.  We’ve delivered the IT foundation that will help the business grow more easily.  This includes sophisticated video conferencing, network upgrade and a new communications system.  Our sister organisation, Abtec Building Technologies, completed the mechanical and electrical fit out for the ex RAF Depot site.

Latest Newsletter Available Now

It’s difficult to talk about IT at the moment without talking about the ‘Cloud’.  In this month’s newsletter we look at the business case for centralising your IT resources and creating your own private cloud.  I’m sure you’ll be surprised to find that you’ve probably got much of the equipment needed to create your own cloud already.  As well as providing some hints and tips we also examine a recent project with Darlington Building Society.  We helped the Society centralise its IT infrastructure, cutting costs and improving the organisation’s agility, and in the newsletter you’ll see some of the benefits this created.
