Microsoft Windows XP End of Life - Upgrade Your IT with Solutions from ISC
Microsoft has announced that as of April 8, 2014 support will no longer be available for for their popular Operating System, Windows XP. The world's biggest software manufacturer has supported the software for 12 years, even though they have released three major OS's since; Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.1. Users that are still using XP will want to upgrade their workstations to one of the newer versions as soon as they can to avoid the many detrimental circumstances that are often associated with running non-supported legacy software.
If your business relies on its technology, wouldn't you want to protect the technology you depend on? At ISC, we provide comprehensive IT services to small and medium-sized businesses in the Kentuckiana area and we can be of great benefit for situations like the one that XP users are faced with currently. While there is no question that Windows XP has been a reliable and useful operating system for over a decade, its time of usefulness is coming to an end. Sadly, with the end of support date so close, there are still over one-quarter of all PCs running Windows XP. In fact, it was the world's most utilized operating system up until August 2012.

It wasn't until someone called to see if we had an IT service provider that I realized I have used the services of ISC for over 20 years and have relied on their expertise. In a previous job, ISC managed our SQL server and POS system for 30+ stores in 5 states plus our office network. In my present job, they have been there when we expanded from a 3-person office to over a dozen employees across 4 states. We are able to collaborate using Microsoft Office 365 and a virtual private network. The staff is experienced, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
As a mid-size manufacturer of custom woodwork our operations are large enough to be complex but too small to justify an internal IT staff. ISC has been an ideal fit for us. Capable, responsive, cost-efficient, and they share our customer-centric values. ISC allows us to focus on what we do best with the peace of mind knowing our IT infrastructure is in good hands.
I am pleased to strongly recommend the team at ISC Kentucky. For years we attempted to support our IT hardware and software installation/upgrade needs internally with limited success. The ISC team effectively assessed our current state, established and executed an improvement plan that covered immediate needs AND projected risks, and have consistently supported our ongoing needs…largely via remote access…in a timely and efficient manner. Partnering with ISC has been clearly one of the best decisions we’ve made for our business…so we can focus on the business.
I could not be more satisfied with ISC Kentucky. They were vital in advising, implementing, and supporting my family medicine practice network. Every time I have needed network support their service was prompt and courteous. I feel that I am a valued customer and they have my best interests in mind.
We have been using ISC Kentucky for almost 2 years. We were in the market looking for an IT company to take care of our needs as a skilled nursing home. One of our board members uses ISC and gave us James Naive as a contact for them. We have been more than satisfied with their work and their knowledge of what we needed and when we needed it. They came in and looked around our building assessed what we had and developed a plan for us to follow to get where we needed to be. I rest much more comfortably knowing that our IT solutions are in their hands. I would highly recommend ISC Kentucky to anyone looking to solve their IT problems. ISC have professional and knowledgeable staff that have handled any situation that we have had in the last 2 years.
As a company we brought in ISC to handle the equipment at our office and 16 locations. They have provided excellent customer service on all levels. They are quick to respond and to resolve any issues. Their office and service staff is efficient, knowledgeable and professional. ISC staff will be instrumental in our planning for the next year. They have been a real asset to our company. We appreciate the relationship and service they have provided.
