We work with many fire & rescue and related organizations in Southern Maryland and have observed some common challenges:
Updating technology without causing disruption to organization’s productivity.
Southern Solutions has local network analysts and trainers to assist with new copier and printer installations. We coordinate with the delivery team to decrease your downtime and to get you up and running as quickly as possible. With your industry, we understand there may be a need for after hours network installation and training sessions and we can accommodate.
Maintaining and often reducing printing budgets.
With Xerox Standard Accounting, controlling costs on many multifunction copiers is simple to set-up and to manage. Xerox’s User Permissions provides advanced control over printing per user, time of day or week and per application. For example, would you like certain users to print in color and certain users to print in black & white? Or for all webpages to be printed in black & white and PowerPoint slides to be printed 4-up? These policies are easy to set up with User Permissions and Application Defaults.
Increasing efficiencies with office printing process.
With our Print Management Solutions, we can centralize the management of all your desktop printers from multiple manufacturers (Xerox, HP, Brother & Dell). We can take control of your print activities and reduce your costs by up to 30%. We also provide automatic supply ordering and replenishment with no user intervention required.
Greater productivity with proactive network support and seamless 3rd party software integration.
We provide network management and IT solutions to many organizations in Southern Maryland. We specialize in proactive support services and provide remote and on-site support. Many fire & rescue organizations utilize 3rd party software for day to day operations and we have vast experience in integrating unique software.
Southern Solutions has helped us upgrade our dispatch center from one console to two consoles with 6 wide screens. This system dispatches our ambulences, vans and sedans. It also displays real time vehicle tracking, sends orders and other information directly to our vehciles, displays weather maps, regional hospital status, and area traffic cameras. Additionally, it interfaces with other company sites allowing us to retrieve and schedule trips requested by them. At the same time, a robust server and network upgrades occurred to allow us to interface with our phone system while providing uninterupted network throughput for all functions. Did I mention they also helped reduce our printing expense by installing a network printer, scanner and fax which integrates many functions into one and eliminated several pieces of redundant equipment? We’d highly recommend these guys for their ability to focus on support without trying to sell unneccessary equipment and services that aren’t needed.
