Want To Get The Most Value & Security From Your Technology?
Do What A Busy Dental Practice In Vienna Did
Migrate To Hardware-as-a-Service
Vienna Family Dental & Facial Aesthetics is a very busy practice in Northern Virginia. Dr. Rudolph and his team have been providing excellent dental care to patients for over 40 years. They rely on technology in many ways – for their administrative, clinical and security needs. NOVA Computer Solutions ensures the practice always stays up and running, uses the most cost-effective technologies, and receives the value they deserve from their IT investments.
This is important for any growing dental practice and especially for a large one like Vienna Family Dental. Dr. Rudolph and his team work in 12 operatories and currently use 25 computers. To ensure the practice has the technology they need without all the costs, NOVA implemented a Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) solution for them.
What Is HaaS?
Hardware-as-a-Service provides access to hardware along with installation, accompanying software, maintenance, and upgrades. With no upfront capital investment, it’s an excellent solution for dental practices and businesses that rely on up-to-date technology.
New is better when it comes to hardware and software. HaaS is easy to upgrade and promotes reliability and security. Plus, you pay a fixed monthly fee for HaaS so you can budget your IT costs more effectively.
HaaS involves leasing network equipment such as servers, computers and some peripherals, which your business would otherwise have to purchase and replace after 3 to 5 years. Since HaaS includes all maintenance, service, hardware, updates and it also provides the peace of mind that you’ll always have the reliable technology you need. It’s what many dental practices and businesses in Northern Virginia are switching to.
Why Did Vienna Dental Switch To HaaS?
Dr. Rudolph and his team needed a more cost-effective approach to technology. The practice is growing all the time and purchasing and maintaining computers was something they didn’t need to worry about. HaaS alleviates a lot of hardware headaches and provides significant benefits.
Outdated IT equipment can be costly to maintain especially when you need 25 computers like Vienna Family Dental does. With HaaS, NOVA provides everything they need and maintains their 25 computers and server for a fixed monthly fee. Vienna Dental appreciates the value they receive from HaaS and the technology expertise that NOVA provides along with it.
Vienna Family Dental will never be hit with expensive IT bills. All of their computers, servers, and peripherals are maintained and warrantied for a monthly fixed fee. With NOVA and their HaaS services, the staff at Vienna Family Dental can focus on their patients without the worry of technology problems.
How Else Does Vienna Family Dental Benefit From NOVA’s IT Services?
NOVA has been providing IT service and support for Dr. Rudolph and his staff for over 10 years. As the practice has grown, NOVA’s professionals have provided up-to-date and cost-effective technology solutions.
