BRISTOL - Computer Development Systems Inc. has been meeting the communityâ€™s IT needs for 37 years.
Family-owned and operated, the business was started in 1981 by Rick and Rose Parenti at a location on North Street in Bristol. Since then, it has moved to its current location, at 132 Riverside Ave., and their son, Tony, has taken over.
â€śWe pride ourselves on building relationships with our clients,â€ť said Tony Parenti, adding that they are on a first-name basis with all of their clients. â€śWe really focus on developing close partnerships and becoming an extension of their business.â€ť
Computer Development Systems, a managed service provider, does IT sales and services for small-to medium-sized businesses in Bristol and surrounding areas.
â€śWe monitor and manage everything remotely,â€ť Tony Parenti continued. â€śWhether itâ€™s servers, workstations, antivirus/antimalware, or various other network appliances, we develop a proactive, rather than a reactive, IT environment for our clients.â€ť
Each client has a representative come out to their business and do a site-survey. The client and Computer Development Systems then discuss what IT problems the business frequently has, and what their short- and long-term goals are.
The company tailors each IT plan to clients based on their respective needs.
â€śItâ€™s not really a one-plan-fits-all scenario,â€ť Tony Parenti said. â€śEach business is unique in their needs and we build out the most cost-effective solution to accomplish their goals.â€ť
Computer Development Systems also offers managed backup, including business continuity / disaster recovery planning. If a clientâ€™s critical systems go down, Parenti said, we can help keep their business up and running with extremely minimal downtime.
Tony Parenti, a co-owner with Rose Parenti, said the business also does cloud migrations for email services, including Office 365 and G Suite. â€śMigrating to the cloud has really become a great option for businesses looking to minimize their internal on-going IT hardware and software costs. What companies must keep in mind though is that cloud-based email services such as Office 365 or G Suite do not inherently backup their data. As a managed service provider, we can offer our clients the right tools to not only migrate from on-premise to cloud based email services, but to also backup their cloud data at a granular level, keep their data secure and meet any compliancy needs they may have.â€ť
