“Absolutely, We Have Seen An Increase In Employee Productivity As Employees Are No Longer Trying To Figure Out Computer Issues. Instead, They Can Be Productive At The Job We Hired Them To Do.”

South's Outpost - IT Support Client of BIS
Josh South Souths Outpost

Josh South,
South’s Outpost

“I was introduced to BIS through our accountant, Tommy Benson. He and I were talking one day. He mentioned the service and how seamless it was in that BIS would fix a problem before there was one. Staff with no actual training were supporting our computer network. It was a very inefficient process that at times would take days to solve issues. Or worse, we would just give up, go out and spend capital on new hardware that probably wasn’t necessary. My initial consultation with BIS made me realize that in the long run less downtime and not pulling staff to work on computers was a profit generator. On Thanksgiving night in 2021, we were at the store getting things ready and had a vital computer crash that would have halted our operations the next day as Black Friday is a big day for us in the retail business. BIS had a tech out the next morning installing a new computer and getting our system up. We lost about an hour of sales, but it could have been much worse! Absolutely, we have seen an increase in employee productivity as employees are no longer trying to figure out computer issues. Instead, they can be productive at the job we hired them to do. Thank you BIS for partnering with our business!”

We Went From $100,000 to $20,000 Annual Cost For Monitoring

Marspec Technical Products - BIS IT Support Client
Laura Sisco Marspec

Laura Sisco,
Marspec Technical Products

I was in need of a new company to manage our IT. In my search, I saw BIS had great reviews. We were using a company that had charged us $100,000 in one year just to manage our system, so we needed a change. They had also allowed our server to crash twice within three months requiring us to purchase two new servers. I looked at several company. But once I met with Phillip, I knew BIS was the one we needed. If there are any issues, BIS logs into our computer and can make the corrections quickly without much down time. Yes, I have seen a reduction in costs. We went from $100,000 to $20,000 annual cost for monitoring. We have seen an increase in employee productivity in that we don’t have down time like we used to.”

“We learned of BIS through your outstanding reputation for great customer service and IT knowledge. We were in need of an IT service that would take care of our needs quickly and efficiently.

We have indeed experienced great customer service from BIS. Any problem we have is attended to and solved quickly. BIS always stays in touch with us throughout the process updating us on their problem solving progress and what to expect. The technicians are always kind and never impatient. It takes a lot of stress out of the work day knowing we can call BIS any time there is an IT issue. This also saves us a lot of time not having to do any IT work ourselves.”

Chylane Gregory,

“BIS brings to the table security. We do a lot of computer work in our day-to-day transactions. Knowing that at the end of the day we are secure in our operations and we have no trouble getting in touch with someone with troubleshooting. BIS is always there. They call and monitor our situations. At the end of the day, we just feel like our technology is a huge part of what we do. You’re there to support us and make sure our day goes as planned.”

“When We Call, They’re Johnny-On-The-Spot And They Knock It Out Quick”

Bennet Hinyub,
Quality Filters

“Prior to BIS, we had an IT manager that would handle all of our IT solutions internally. When he moved on, he found BIS through another resource. It’s been very beneficial to have BIS with us. Our ERP system and some of the things we do internally are a little challenging. BIS has always been on top of marking out the networks, so we know how all of our data processes. The technicians, I can’t say anything better about them. When we call, they’re Johnny-on-the-spot and they knock it out quick.”

Sheppard Services

“The Service Is Super-Fast Which Is Very Important In Our Industry”

Emily McNeil
Sheppard Services

“We were in need of a higher level of service than we were experiencing from our old service provider. We weren’t getting responses or answers. We wanted to use someone local. We felt like BIS could support us now and also in the future as we hopefully expand to other locations. Whenever we have an issue, we put in a ticket and within usually 30 minutes we have a response. We always hear back immediately which is amazing. Typically, it’s always resolved within 24 hours, if not sooner. The service time is super-fast which is very important in our industry.”

They’ve really helped us along the way to make it easier for us. Within inside of an hour, we usually have a resolution. Time is money for us, and it makes a big difference.”

“When I Call or Email BIS, I Know That It’s Going to Be Handled”
Frank Fabre & Debra Channell Fabre Engineering & Surveying
“IT is critical to our company. The business we’re in, engineering and surveying, we really live and die by IT, our network and the internet. So, we got to have the right people supporting us. We’re very pleased with our relationship with BIS. They’ve done a great job for us. When we have an issue, we call you guys and you respond right away and that’s whether we’re working a problem here in the office or in the houses where we remote in using your system. You guys really respond great.” – Franke Fabre
“BIS has relieved all the stress. We were using someone local and we went from one to another. It just wasn’t working and you have to have somebody dependable. Your business and your employees depend on it because we got to get the work out. When I call or email BIS, I know that it’s going to be handled. We don’t have to worry about the security. We know our files are secured. If something happens, which let’s face it it does, y’all are johnny-on-the-spot. Y’all take care of us and we know our files are okay.” – Deborah Channel

Saunders Yachtworks

“The Biggest Result We’ve Gotten From You Guys In The Early Going Is Responsiveness”
John Fitzgerald
Saunders Yachtworks
“So, we have in the past had to rely upon one person and their development and understanding of the IT field all the challenges and the different advantages of using equipment or updated software. And, it’s asking a lot of an individual whereas your company [BIS] studies that all the time and it’s kind of pushing ideas to us and bringing opportunities to us because of that. So having a company that prides itself on updating customers like ourselves with newer equipment, newer software, newer ways to manage the data, that’s been very helpful. So, the biggest result we’ve gotten from you guys in the early going is responsiveness. You know we have been able to, as we come up with issues, get your guys out here quickly and get things turned around from a negative situation to a position situation.”

Thomas Roofing

“I Know That If Something Happens We Have A Backup And BIS Has Put In All Of These Systems That Really Help Us”

“Your services have morphed over the years and given us more and more support. I think the biggest thing over the last several years has been the ability for me not to have to get involved in day-to-day IT things. My staff knows to call your people. They can handle the situation and I never get involved. When we worry about a storm coming in or a cyber-attack, I know that if something happens we have a backup and BIS has put in all of these systems that really help us to know if something happens we can get right back up and running with almost all of our data. We’re not down long and we’re good to go.” – Derek Thomas, Thomas Roofing

Jackson County Civic Action Committee

“We Had Some Security Issues We Were Concerned About”

“We were having computer issues and problems. Our in-house staff was not addressing our needs. We had some security issues we were concerned about. So, through another partnership with Mississippi Power, their IT person helped us go out for bids and helped us choose BIS. And probably a lot of what we can attribute to our successful partnership with you is because of our IT administrator, Hope. She keeps on top of everything and she has a really good working relationship with the staff at BIS.” – Diann Payne, Jackson County Civic Action Committee, a BIS Managed IT Support Client

VONA Case Management, Inc.

“It Always Means a Lot to Me to Work Local if We Can”

“It always means a lot to me to work local if we can. I came across BIS through Google search actually and interviewed Phillip, one of the owners. We met, talked and discussed everything. We really hit it off and started building the partnership from there. Our people are located all across the country and they work from home. This is our home office [Daphne], but to be able to have access to people that can help us when issues arise and also when we equip a new hire, we’re able to get a computer, get a fax machine, whatever we need. BIS really helps us expedite that process.” – Ryan Shirley, a BIS Managed IT Support Client

Orion Engineers & Constructors

“It’s a Partnership That Works for Both of Us”
Bryan Lopez
Orion Engineers & Constructors
“In many cases with the monitoring, y’all are aware of issues before I’m aware. So, y’all let me know and y’all usually have techs on it. So of course, I sleep better at night knowing that. Our downtime is very minimal and being about 120 employees, I can’t even do the math as far as the amount of money that’s saved just not having long downtime. A lot of that we credit to the proactive nature of BIS. It’s a partnership that works with both of us. There’s just not enough hours in a day, so it’s nice to offload some of the deeper IT issues. I’ve never had any problems as far as quick turnaround and IT problems. Usually, within the hour, I get help pretty quick. So, I’ve been really happy with the relationship.”

Brown Financial Advisory

“I Wanted to Partner With Someone That I Felt Like Had the Resources to Really Protect Our Clients”

“I studied computer science while I was in college. So, I have a pretty good understanding of what happens in the Internet and the dark web and how at-risk our clients could be without the adequate protections. So, I wanted to partner with someone that I felt like had the resources to really protect our clients and protect us from the potential for breach. I really appreciate BIS and the resources that they provide us. It provides me a ton of peace of mind and I appreciate the opportunity to work with you guys.” – Scott McLeod

Carson & Co.

“I Am Stress-Free With Our Technology.”

“My employees know when they hit the door that everything is going to be working for them. With y’alls monitoring, I know before I leave the house if something’s down. I know how to reroute people if that happens. So, it has really helped how we do our business. I am very stress-free with our technology. That’s something I’ve turned over to BIS and it’s something I don’t have to worry about.” – Carmen Rockstall, a BIS managed IT support client

Auto Craft Collision Center

“We’ve Saved 40-50 Hours Per Month On Inside Labor!”

“BIS is only a phone call away and a true blessing. It’s freed up my time so I can focus on my business. Not to mention, we’ve saved 40-50 hours per month on inside labor since we no longer have to figure out the problem and learn how to fix it. Financial monthly output and soft costs like downtime have decreased thanks to BIS. When you’ve found the right IT company, it just works. Now, we can focus on repairing vehicles instead of our computer system.” – Chad Chupek, Owner, a BIS Managed IT Support Client

“Since Going with Business Information Solutions, We’ve Had No Crashes!”

“It’s true, you get what you pay for. We used another company before we contracted with Business Information Solutions and we were NOT treated with any sense of urgency nor did the company bother to get to know us. With BIS, we know they actually appreciate our business. I don’t know where we would be if Business Information Solutions was not monitoring our system or us. Since going with them, we’ve had NO CRASHES.”

“We No Longer Have to Worry About Being ‘Down’ for Hours!”

“Before Business Information Solutions, our server was being managed by two different individuals at a much cheaper rate. We thought our information was being backed up on a daily basis and it actually was not. When our server crashed, we lost years of documents. We spent many man-hours recreating documents and researching information that had previously been readily available. To us, this was more expensive than overall billing for the service Business Information Solutions provides. With the IT services that Business Information Solutions provides, we no longer have to worry about being ‘down’ for hours or days with issues. Calls and work orders are responded to very quickly and efficiently.”

“Cheaper Is Not Always Better! In Most Cases, It’s Actually Worse!”

“Cheaper is not always better! In most cases, it’s actually worse! You can go use another IT company and probably pay less an hour for tech support, but you won’t get the support in as timely a manner as you do with Business Information Solutions. And, you won’t get 24 hour monitoring. With 24 monitoring, you get a heads up on potential problems and it allows you to correct the problems before your system goes down. With the 24 hour sentinel monitoring, I can sit back and wait on Business Information Solutions to tell me if something needs to be upgraded or if a backup fails. I’m no longer constantly checking for errors and problems on our network and servers. Instead, it frees up my time to spend doing what I need to do in my day to day business activities!”

Robertsdale Dental Office

“With The New Replacements, Prompt Service and Extraordinary Care BIS Has Given Us, We’re Able To Focus More On Our Patients And Less On Computer Problems!”

Robertsdale Dental Office Sees Decrease in Downtime and Computer Errors Thanks to Business Information Solutions

Dr. Jason Northcutt, owner of Robertsdale Dental Care, wears many hats at his practice. Not only is he one of the dentists, but he has also taken on the role of office manager. With all of those responsibilities, the last thing he wants to deal with is computer or network problems. “When I have a patient in the chair and I need to look at his or her x-ray, I don’t have time for the computer to act up” said Dr. Northcutt. “I need to be able to access that x-ray immediately.”

“From My Standpoint As A Small Business Man, Every Minute Counts And I’m Not Losing Any Minutes With BIS!”
BIS Delivers Professional And Prompt Service To A Small Attorney’s Office Whose Network Now Works Flawlessly And Never Has Downtime
When dealing with larger service providers, Mr. Frank Leon, owner and attorney at Frank Leon, P.C., was usually at the bottom of the totem pole. His frustrations only grew with the unbelievably slow response times he received from larger providers.

Jim Owen, owner of Gulf Shores Title Co., Inc., has been a longtime managed IT support client of Business Information Solutions.

“Staff Morale Has Gone Up Because I Receive Less Complaints About Our Network”
“Over three years ago, I sent out an RFP for an IT partner. While BIS made it into the top two, I ended up choosing another company. However, I grew unhappy with my choice because the IT company didn’t have the depth of technicians that my company needed nor could it meet an acceptable turnaround time when fixing both simple and complex network issues. After attending one of BIS’ luncheons on backup and disaster recovery, I decided to meet with Phillip Long, CEO of Business Information Solutions. I toured the facility, met the technicians and called on references. Every reference had a raving review. So, I felt comfortable choosing BIS. Today, I can sleep better at night knowing we have a good anti-virus, a great backup and our network is secure.”
