Consonus Technologies, a leader in IT managed services, data protection solutions, IT business continuity, and cloud computing solutions, speaks about customer sentiment on cost vs. quality in terms of remote backup solutions through its alliance with BlueTech IT Solutions.
Online PR News – 20-July-2010 – – MIAMI, FL and CARY, NC July 2010 -- St. Stephen’s Episcopal Day School, a leading private elementary school in the Coconut Grove area of Miami, recently returned to Consonus and channel partner BlueTech IT Solutions, stating that the quality of service the companies offered had greater value than the lower cost of alternative providers. After spending less than two months with a well-known remote backup service provider, St. Stephen's realized that the combination of Consonus and BlueTech’s technology offered far greater value than simply the cost savings on monthly fees.
"Often, a low-price provider can cost a company far more than they anticipated saving. When evaluating cost, there are four critical factors to consider: security, resiliency, compliance, and support. If there is a breakdown of any of these four key quality points, the cost to the client can be intensive," says Bob McCarthy, President of Consonus Technologies. (http://www.consonus.com).

"BlueTech's seamless on-the-ground support and commitment to their clients makes BlueTech our 'go to' IT business partner," said FELIX Jacomino, Director of Technology for St Stephen's School. "Despite 6 weeks of efforts, the low-cost provider was never able to successfully back up our 150G of data, so we were thrilled to learn that Consonus still had our data and that we were able to pick up where we left off. The expertise offered by BlueTech and Consonus offer is second to none. The team really bailed us out."
