You didn't launch a start-up to spend your time lost in software asset management or system administration. The values and mission of your non-profit aren't focused on server uptime or infosec. Your school's success and students' achievements aren't dependent on an SDLC or measured by the number of help desk tickets completed. Your work is too important to spend it lost in IT: your skills and experience are needed elsewhere, we can get you there.
What's running where, why, and scariest of all... how? Many organizations simply don't know or understand what's running behind their screens, relying on systems and services rarely used or under-utilized, literally sold more than needed.
LOCUS PLEXUS engages with you to understand your business needs, determine user requirements, and identify technology options that enhance your work while reducing your obligations.Details & Pricing
One choice is no choice! Too many organizations only have one option for the implementation, hosting, and support of their mission-critical software, the sole provider who sold them the system—it's called "vendor lock-in."
LOCUS PLEXUS identifies and procures resources for highly available software solutions and service providers, ensuring flexibility and freedom for you and your organization.Details & Pricing
You've already got something to do …scratch that… dozens of things to do. Even if you've outsourced your system administration and support to the vendor who sold you the software, who are they really working for?
LOCUS PLEXUS works and advocates for you and your organization only, not a software company or service provider. If something doesn't fit, we'll find you the right option until you're satisfied.Details & Pricing
Open Source software is software that can be freely accessed, used, edited, and shared—in modified or unmodified form—by anyone, for any purpose.
Open source software dominates today's software and technology landscape, with major adopters spanning corporations across industries, including Adobe, Amazon, Apple, Bloomberg, BMW, Capital One, Comcast, eBay, Facebook, Google, IBM, Indeed, Microsoft, NY Times, PayPal, SalesForce, Target, Twitter, Uber, U.K. Cabinet Office, U.S. Department of Defence, Wallmart, and many more. But open source software isn't just for big companies.
Open source solutions provide unique opportunities to small organizations, allowing them to deploy highly capable digital platforms and compete without purchasing prohibitively expensive multi-user licenses from software giants like Adobe or Microsoft. Open source software lowers the barriers to entry and allows small companies to invest elsewhere instead of on expensive software.
