Business Connections by Adams

2 F A L L 2 0 1 9 Everything you need is in your own backyard. This issue of Business Connections celebrates how far you can go with achieving goals when you get help from people close to home. We begin on page 3 with a question: In-House IT Employees or Outsourced IT Services ? If you decide on the latter, Adams Experts is right here to provide your business with IT services and support. You’ll find a Business Spotlight on For Home & Her on pages 4 and 5. This locally owned and operated shop is a trendsetter not only for its unique collection of home furnishings and women’s apparel, but also because it’s one of the first group of Adams Fiber customers in “The District” in downtown Quincy. For Home & Her also features many locally made items and actively supports the Buy Local movement, which is discussed on page 7’s Be Vocal About Buying Local. On page 6, find out how to Get Help with Data Backup and Business Continuity. Adams is a Datto Professional Global Partner, which enables our local staff to provide a broader range of IT solutions. With Adams, you have access to world-class resources from a hometown provider. For neighborly advice, give us a call.
