A host of services at Altec Systems

January 11, 2011Martha Entwistle

MARIETTA, Ga.—Altec Systems “dipped its toe in the water” of managed services about four years ago, and today it offers not only hosted access control and remote guarding, but a number of IT services, such as hosted desktop, phone, email and servers as well.
