SMBs Can Boost Productivity while Leveraging Budgets with HP Flex-Bundles

As a small to midsized business, you may be experiencing the rapid growth of your mobile workforce. With more and more employees participating in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), you are enjoying increased productivity. Did you know that globally, BYOD employees are gaining an average of 37 minutes of productive time per week – generating an average $350 annual value per mobile employee for their employers?[1]

 

Along with these benefits, worker mobility brings related IT challenges associated with accessibility, security, and management. One of your biggest challenges may be how to protect your IT infrastructure with a limited budget, while enabling your mobile workforce.

 

What solutions are available and tailored to help businesses like yours?

 

HP Flex-Bundles.

 

These are affordable, predefined reference configurations for SMBs that are easy to integrate and deploy. If you are seeking a new or upgraded email system, HP Flex-Bundles for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 offers anytime, anywhere email, calendar, and contact access for up 1,000 mailboxes. Fast and reliable, Microsoft Exchange as part of an HP solution reduces unplanned system downtime issues by 66 percent[2] so your employees don’t lose valuable time and accessibility. 

 

To further enhance efficiencies and productivity, HP Flex-Bundles for Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) with Microsoft Lync 2013 offer a highly reliable, secure end-to-end unified communication and collaboration platform. Providing integrated instant messaging, video, voice, and file sharing across multiple devices, the platform is tailored to meet your collaboration needs today and grow as your business grows.  HP Flex-Bundles for UCC with Microsoft Lync 2013 include reference configurations to support up to 1,000 users as well as both branch and remote locations. Tested, flexible, and customizable to your specific UCC needs, they simplify the design and deployment of your communications platform. In addition, employees are provided a familiar interface that speeds adoption and reduces training time.

 

Both solutions are backed by the intelligence of HP ProLiant Gen8 servers – including high-performance Intel® processors, HP software, and Microsoft Windows® operating system software, so equipment and software is familiar, easing the deployment time for either solution.


By reinvigorating – or newly adding – email and UCC Flex-Bundle solutions for your business, you will quickly realize the return in productivity on your investment. Your employees and clients will be in closer communication with email, calendaring, voicemail, instant messaging, presence, voice, and conferencing (including PC audio, telephony, video, and web) – and your travel and communications costs will decrease.
