Our IT solutions are created using superior quality hardware, software and cloud services. We have allied ourselves with the top vendors in the industry. In all cases we have joined vendor partner programs and achieved various levels of certification when applicable. This results in our ability to receive higher levels of technical support as well as advanced notice of new products and services. In return, we are able to provide you with better levels of service. We are pleased to provide you with all your hardware and software requirements.

Our key vendor partners are: HP, Microsoft, Toshiba, Lenovo, Symantec, WatchGuard, Intel and Cisco. Click here for more information on our vendor partnerships and here for more information on our product offerings.

In some cases an on-premise hardware and software installation is not the right solution. Onward has various Internet-based hosted services (also known as Cloud Services) available to our clients to resolve these situations. Our hosted solutions range from CRM, email archiving and continuity services, collaboration, on-line backups, spam blocking and virus filtering to the ability to access, view, and edit documents directly from your web browser.

Our Environmental Commitment

“Onward Computer Systems is very conscious of the worldwide problem of electronic waste. An unfortunate side effect of the growing IT industry is the increase in electronic waste which requires proper and safe disposal. OCS has made it company policy to reduce our effect on the environment in 3 different ways:

  • OCS recommends products that not only deliver on reliability but have a reduced environmental impact in every phase of their life cycle, from their development and production, to their use and disposal. Power efficiency, manufacturing process, reduced operational carbon footprint, and longer life spans are product features we take into consideration when designing and deploying solutions.
  • OCS reuses existing hardware whenever feasible. This not only reduces waste, but also reduces your expenditure. We also encourage clients to donate any operationally redundant hardware. This is not only environmentally friendly but also socially responsible.
  • Hardware and components that cannot be reused or repaired can be recycled. Recycling enables the recovery and reuse of valuable materials and it also ensures toxic materials are not buried in our landfills. OCS partners with local certified recycling companies to properly dispose of electronic waste.”
