Lambert Group, the parent firm of The ARM Group, has just rolled out its first Beta Client of a new program for non-profits
Richard Lambert, owner of Lambert Group dba The ARM Group and RCsecured, just announced the formation of this special program. The service is designed to support non-profit organizations in Napa/Sonoma County and the Bay Area that need and want the support of an Information Technology firm and the full functionality of a Windows Small Business server, but on a limited budget.
Our first Beta client is Fair Housing of Napa Valley with six users. We are supplying them with a complete Windows network environment that will fulfill the needs of most small non-profits. The servers will be hosted and maintained by our firm.
We are using the latest technologies to support this effort and to limit the environmental impact.
Our system is designed in a private cloud using virtualized servers and redundant mass storage devices that will support a number of organizations while providing security and full privacy to our clients.
By doing it this way, we can support multiple non-profit organizations with up to 20 users at a reduced cost and ensure that all the systems and software are kept at the latest versions.
This service will provide them with full Microsoft Exchange (Outlook) abilities, spam-filtering, backup service and all the server maintenance and updates for a low per-user fee.
Mr. Lambert stated “in this time of limited funds, non-profits are hurt by lack of donations, but still have the need for technology.”
The best way for Lambert Group to support them at this time is to create a system that lets them function with everything they need and provide the support to ensure that it runs properly at a reduced cost.
If the Beta site performs as well as we think it will we will open it up to other non-profit organizations on a first come, first serve basis. Not all non-profit organizations will meet the criteria for this service as designed,stated Mr. Lambert. “As we see the need to grow, then we will expand the service to support other organizations in the future. Our goal is to create a system that not only support the needs of non-profits but can assist other organization such as some smaller towns or schools that have seen their revenues dry up.”
