October 16th 2009
Toronto, Ontario, October 16, 2009 – NPC Inc. announced today that Larry J. Keating, President and Chief Executive Officer, will introduce its line of professionally managed notebooks to the Advocis Toronto chapter at the Master Series 2009 Breakfast on Thursday, October 22nd and again on Thursday, November 20th at the Advocis Toronto Wrap Up Event.
“Notebooks have fast become the primary computing platform of financial advisors and the issue of reliable productivity and information security has become key. The vast majority of our members operate in a small business environment, and finding solutions that help our members focus more on their business and less on the responsibility of keeping up with their technology is something we’re always looking for,” said Nancy Little, Executive Director of Advocis Toronto. “Our independent financial professionals are often self-reliant on making technology work. At Advocis, we will continue to look for industry leading solutions to help them protect their client information and improve their work day.”
“NPC was developed to address productivity and data security challenges with independent financial advisors in mind,” said Mr. Keating. “NPC offers a worry-free synergy of laptop hardware, office productivity and security software, powerful data protection and award-winning customer support.” Like an enterprise-user with IT support, the NPC notebook is pre-loaded, configured, secured and ready to use right out of the box, including an automated backup system, for a single monthly fee.
NPC delivers a professionally managed and pre-configured HP EliteBook including Microsoft Office 2007, an automated backup of all files each day into Iron Mountain, and a suite of remotely managed and monitored security services, all controlled and supported by a sophisticated data centre, not unlike the IT management of a corporate enterprise. A lost, damaged or stolen notebook is replaced with the users data restored, and NPC can remotely destroy data on the original notebook.
“In addition, our 24/7 premium helpdesk support which is included at no charge is much different than calling your typical computer manufacturer,” said Thomas Ward Vice President of Marketing, NPC. “When you call NPC, your average wait time in queue is under one minute. We already know you and your computer and we take ownership for getting your problem resolved. Most calls are resolved in less than ten minutes and we can fix most problems remotely over the internet. The result is an extraordinary customer experience and a computer that works the way you expect it to.”
