Local IT Experts to Release New Book to Help Businesses Increase Productivity, Profits and Security Through Smarter IT
Lliam and Jennifer Holmes, MIS Solutions, Inc. CEO and president respectively, join leading technology experts to co-write “The Business Owner’s Essential Guide to IT and All Things Digital: 22 Critical Facts Every Business Must Know to Maximize Their Company’s Efficiency, Security, Employee Productivity and Profit,” to be released May 15, 2014 by Celebrity PressTM.
SUWANEE, Georgia — May 8, 2014 — As businesses of all sizes are becoming more dependent on IT to operate, serve their clients, communicate and market, CEOs must take a much more strategic approach to technology to stay competitive — and safe. That’s why MIS Solutions, Inc. CEO Lliam Holmes and President Jennifer Holmes have joined a select group of North America’s leading IT experts to co-write the soon-to-be-released book “The Business Owner’s Essential Guide to IT and All Things Digital: 22 Critical Facts Every Business Must Know to Maximize Their Company’s Efficiency, Security, Employee Productivity and Profits.”
Lliam has grown MIS Solutions from an IT services startup working with nearby companies to a Managed IT and Cloud services provider serving small- to mid-sized businesses in all 50 states, with the help of affiliate offices and a partner network. The Holmes’ unique way of helping simplify technology, increase productivity and deliver a competitive edge to their customers has contributed to their success, and it is one of the reasons they were asked to contribute to the upcoming book.
While the book focuses on topics within IT and all things digital, the Holmes’ chapter concentrates on Cloud computing. Jennifer says, “Cloud computing is gaining traction with business owners because it offers significant potential for reduced costs and improved efficiency, flexibility and ‘anywhere, anytime’ access to company applications. Our chapter helps readers understand the technology, determine whether it’s right for them, and, if it is, select expert partners to economically and safely move to the Cloud.”
For the Holmes, helping others achieve success is both a professional and personal goal. Lliam enjoys delivering innovative and creative solutions that tackle business owners’ challenges, and works with both an operations group of national managed services providers and a best practices group that creates network monitoring and issue remediation strategies. Driven by a passion for teaching and instruction, Jennifer mentors others to transform their mindset, business and life. In 2013, she won the Technology Marketing Toolkit Spokesperson title for an industry group of over 550 U.S. computer and cloud service experts who share best practices, marketing strategies, innovation and mentorship.
The authors of “The Business Owner’s Essential Guide to IT and All Things Digital” have extensive experience addressing epic changes in today’s digital world that have moved us to a higher level of specialization and efficiency, while empowering laser-like focus on our activities. The Holmes, as well as their 21 co-authors, are some of the top minds within the IT industry, all of whom serve small to midsized businesses in North America.
“It is very gratifying to be part of such a group of experts giving practical, usable strategies, information and tips to help business owners navigate technologies,” says Lliam. Jennifer adds, “Lliam and I don’t just want to provide IT services, we want to educate people to make their businesses the very best they can be — especially in a continuing tough economic climate.”
This is the couple’s second book. The first, “21 Questions You MUST ASK
Before Hiring a Computer Consultant,” showed small and medium-sized businesses how to turn technology into a competitive advantage instead of a drain on time, money and resources.
All book royalties will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a not-for-profit organization internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with pediatric cancer.
