OAK BROOK, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- BridgePoint Technologies, a full service information technology consulting firm, has been selected by JVM Realty Corporation, a privately held real estate investment and management company, to provide its Virtual Office (BP VO) solution. BridgePoint's Virtual Office enables JVM to effectively support its extensive portfolio of properties by ensuring the secure and efficient daily delivery of critical tenant occupancy and financial data across its Oak Brook, IL-based headquarters, as well as 26 off-site management offices.
Leveraging best practices and the proven technology of its Virtual Office solution, BridgePoint successfully migrated all of JVM's IT infrastructure to the cloud, providing the company with seamless and cost-effective remote access to office files, email and shared documents from any Internet-enabled device. Along with features like Microsoft® Office Suite, antivirus protection, data backup, domain management, disaster recovery, and Help Desk support, BridgePoint's Virtual Office solution also provides JVM with a Microsoft® SharePoint intranet site. SharePoint streamlines communication and collaboration across JVM's 125 remote end-users.
"For roughly the same cost as employing one internal IT professional in-house, BP VO gives us access to a highly specialized team of experts, eliminates our connectivity and networking issues, and enables seamless access and collaboration amongst our headquarters and remote locations -- effortlessly," says Jay Madary, President of JVM Realty Corporation. "With BridgePoint's Virtual Office solution, we are able to develop our niche as a mid-size organization delivering the IT functionality, intelligence and sophistication of a larger publicly traded company with the personalized level of service and responsiveness of a dedicated, private firm."
"Using a terminal server farm, BP VO ensures effective load-balancing to eliminate server overload while offering optimal scalability in the event that JVM's requirements change. This also means ensuring compatibility with JVM's existing accounting and property management systems, which remain crucial to their operations," adds Michael Millhouse, President and CEO of BridgePoint Technologies. "BridgePoint's Virtual Office solution provides JVM Realty with the connectivity, scalability and support it requires to effectively serve its valued investors and tenants, coupled with proximity, personalized service and, most importantly, peace of mind."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
