I’m not sure if CenterBeam is so “cool” per se, but it does have an interesting service. In a nutshell, CenterBeam takes care of your entire technology infrastructure – PCs, printers, servers, Internet access, security, etc. Much of the hardware is wirelessly enabled, so if a PC goes down, just turn on another one and CenterBeam will restore your data.
Gartner defines a cool vendor as a company that offers technologies or solutions that are: Innovative, enable users to do things they couldn’t do before; Impactful, have, or will have, business impact (not just technology for the sake of technology); Intriguing, have caught Gartner’s interest or curiosity in approximately the past six months.
CenterBeam offers a unique IT management service for mid-sized organizations. CenterBeam’s clients benefit from an IT infrastructure that is more sophisticated, secure and robust than they could build and manage themselves. CenterBeam customers are more productive because the CenterBeam service is much more reliable than the industry average. Organizations using the CenterBeam service are able to focus their IT staff onto business opportunities rather than time-consuming, routine IT services. All CenterBeam services are backed with a Total Satisfaction Guarantee, a fully flexible month-to-month agreement.
