We’re very careful about choosing our affiliations. Only the highest quality vendors become part of our offerings.

A case in point would be AppRiver, our Microsoft licensing provider for Office 365 and associated services. AppRiver not only provides the software licensing, but they support the product with their award-winning ‘Phenomenal Care’ helpdesk solution, as well.

When you call into AppRiver, they answer within 3 rings and present themselves in a friendly, polite and clear manner. 

This is your second line of support – your first call would be to our primary helpdesk line, but we can scale according to demand by leveraging AppRiver as an option.

Cloud Change FactorFor small businesses, moving to the cloud is a frightening, yet inevitable transformation. It means business change, especially in regard to systems, processes, and people.

Just about every software vendor in the SMB space has a cloud-based option. In some cases, the only option ever available was cloud, such as with Salesforce CRM and Clio legal practice management. But there are QuickBooks Online, Sage Business Cloud, Oracle Financials Cloud, Adobe Creative Cloud, Autodesk A360, Abacus Private Cloud, Amicus Online.. The list goes on naming programs that were formerly client-server models requiring a host server for the main application combined with client desktop software, all designed to interconnect within the confines of the office.

Microsoft was also among the list of on-premise, server-based systems. But in 2007, Microsoft began offering BPOS, a precursor to today’s Microsoft Online Services, which put Exchange email services and SharePoint document management into the cloud. After BPOS, Office 365 was born in 2011 and now serves over 120 million subscribed users per month. From personal experience, I shut down my on-premise Exchange/SharePoint server in 2008 and have never looked back.

Systems: This is the easy part. Subscribe to your cloud service of choice and then sign in. The engineers have designed the system and they continually make improvements (included upgrades).

  • Now with so much importance placed upon the ability to connect to the Internet, many companies subscribe to a second ISP for failover.
  • The old client-server system authenticated user identity through its Active Directory, a service found within the Windows Server operating system. But now that more users are logging in from afar, the new authentication system that can manage devices and users beyond the four walls is known as Azure Active Directory.

Processes: Probably the most important aspect of business processes is related to security. Password management and protection from malicious attacks are key to preserving the integrity of business operations.

  • Microsoft has been doing a fine job with authentication by offering a variety of options, including Windows Hello, which is essentially face recognition that performs in an elegant fashion. In addition, there are other biometric systems, as well as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) using your mobile device as an authenticator.
  • What used to be considered a mediocre antivirus product, Windows Defender has evolved to become an integral part of a collection of security tools all working as a holistic solution across Windows 10 and Office 365. Recent tests by outside parties have found Windows Defender to be 100% effective, especially when combined with other layers of security within the Microsoft ecosystem.

People: Here’s the hardest part because people generally do not like change. They’re afraid of the unknown and frustrated with what they don’t know. It is here that the business has the intrinsic responsibility to properly train its users.

  • With training comes knowledge, and with knowledge comes confidence – confidence to lead others as a champion and confidence to represent the company in all affairs.
  • Without training comes the danger of ignorance.

Cutting Edge in the Industry

A Different Approach

Office 365 consulting is our primary offering, but helping people with their small business is our passion.

Originally a computer repair shop in 2000 and then a Managed Services Provider (MSP) in 2005, the company has evolved to become a Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) and business consultant to the small business, particularly as we assist companies with their adoption of Office 365 and its new Office flagship application, Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Office 365 Small Business

We treat all our clients as individuals and don’t think a one-size-fits-all solution will work. We’ll help you develop a customized plan to your unique position.

Ease and Assurance

We accomplish this by proactively monitoring and maintaining hardware and software, as well as putting automated defense systems in place against malicious viruses, catastrophic damage and accidental loss by deletion.

Business continuity is a primary objective, which makes us partners with a common goal – you want to remain operational and therefore profitable, while the provider (RIT) profits by avoiding unexpected and untimely workloads.

Above peace of mind, Resolute IT includes training and support to enable the workers to become more efficient and most productive, thus enabling the worker and nurturing a competitive company advantage.

Our Story


Always on the cutting edge, we strive to bring the most productive, secure and affordable new technologies to the small business.

We’ve come from beginnings as a 1996 web designer and a 1999 support technician for the US Census.  When our Cape Cod-based company (pleasantbay.NET) launched in January 2000, the transition from offering web design services to the hands-on skills of network and computer support began an exciting and rewarding journey.

Our move to Florida meant the decommission of our on-premises servers. We moved to cloud-hosted Exchange email and SharePoint document storage. Once in the cloud, we’ve never looked back.

Our mission is to help the small business rid themselves of archaic technologies, bringing cloud-based solutions to practical use.  While many cling to legacy servers, unsecured and unreliable VPN tunnels, legacy methods represent security risks and hidden costs. But we are moving to embrace the world of cloud computing by offering Microsoft Office 365 consulting, administration, backup, and training. We empower your teams with collaboration, industry compliance, and productivity tools such as Microsoft Teams — from anywhere at any time.
