The IT industry is strongly trending toward "cloud" services, and many companies are benefitting from the savings and efficiencies that come with this new paradigm. Companies are moving to the cloud to gain services that "just work" without the overhead of expensive, full time, dedicated infrastructure and the fleet of staff required to maintain it all.
There remains a need for ubiquitous, always-on communications infrastructure for offices and public locations. Without this, the cloud simply does not work effectively. This is where 7e7 comes in.
7e7 staff collectively hold decades of experience in managing network and communications infrastructure globally. This experience level provides efficiencies not able to be provided by other service providers. In each engagement, a senior-level architect reviews the customer needs and prescribes the optimal solution.
7e7 is a woman-owned business based in Scottsdale, Arizona.
