SMB-focused IT solutions designed for growing small businesses


HPE SMB IT solutions-blog.jpgDiscover new IT solutions designed to work for your small business, leaving you free to focus on your customers. And learn why you can trust your technology to HPE and our expert reseller partners to help you reach your business goals.

Most SMB customers have three main goals around technology. Do these sound familiar to you?

1. Fear-free IT

You don’t want to be afraid of technology. Customers are your business, not technology. You expect it to work—to help improve the business not create fear about new technology. You need to grow revenue and the business, so you sometimes need advice on what you need and how to keep it up and running with minimal fuss.

2. No worries, your technology is safe and secure

You don’t want to worry about your technology being safe and secure. And you don’t have the luxury of downtime. You expect vendors to provide a complete solution, one that is rock-solid reliable, protected from cyber threats—backed by the technical support you need without the guesswork hassles and handoffs to multiple support people.

3. Amazingly efficient technology

You need your technology to be efficient. Getting the best return for the money spent—on anything—is vital. You need to know that everything is being fully utilized and not dragging the business down because it’s outdated or inefficient. In fact, you’ll pay the right price to have the best technology for your business, but you want to do it on your terms and prefer to pay only for what you use.

So, taking our proven track record of providing products and solutions that SMBs love, and combining that with this in-depth knowledge of what customers like you want and need from IT, we developed a portfolio of offerings for SMBs, giving you what you need to succeed. With these SMB-focused and designed solutions, you can focus on customers, knowing your IT needs are taken care of. And you can sleep well at night with 360-degree security, while remaining confident that you are operating with total efficiency.

The right solutions
