Maximize employee productivity and mobility with Anchor

We live in a fast-paced, mobile world. How are your employees accessing and sharing files on the go?

File sync technology has made it possible for employees to access and share files from virtually anywhere. Unfortunately, the use of consumer-grade file sync services, such as Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, and Google Drive, jeopardizes corporate data. The cost to organizations that mishandle data varies depending on the industry – but in all cases it is significant.

The benefits of file sync technology are great, but consumer-grade file sync services are not appropriate for the workplace. Therefore, it is imperative that organizations adopt a business-grade file sync solution that is both easy to use and secure.

Anchor syncs corporate data, allowing users to access and share critical files and folders from their computers and mobile devices. With Anchor, users are able to work from virtually anywhere.

Anchor is full of features that make it easy for users to securely share and work with others. Users have various options for sharing with internal and external parties, can control the files and folders that they have shared, and set policies for the ways in which they are accessed. All of this combines to form an intuitive and seamless user experience.

Finally, Anchor gives administrators total control over their corporate data. A comprehensive dashboard, rich reporting, and granular controls makes it easy to manage an entire instance of Anchor. Coupled with military-grade encryption, custom or unlimited retention, remote wipes, continuous backups, and rapid restores, Anchor sets the standard for businessgrade file sync.

Darvin is a very well rounded contributor in terms of his strong skills both in the business and technical realms. He also has an engaging personality that is at the same time politely confident and warm. He also keeps all stakeholders in mind when delivering a project. I would count it an honour to work with him again in the future.

Robert Barte

I have worked with Dar on many occasions and he has proven himself over and over again to be a man of integrity and someone who is very knowledgable in his field. I would strongly encourage you to talk to him regarding IT Support and phones services in Alberta.

Ken Gooz

I have collaborated with Darvin on several breakthroughs and forward-looking IT projects to which he ALWAYS came through with a solution where there appeared not to be as concepts were more advanced than current technologies.

His thought processes is methodical and detailed, approach is ethical and professional and solutions driven. He deliverers what he said he would, on time and on budget.

When we use Helia they exceed our expected deliverables and always within our agreed to budget. They work with us, not just for us, all the while keeping our best interests as a company at the core of the project.

We had been looking for a company that not only could get the job done as promised, on time and on budget but one that came with integrity. Helia provides us with a "mean what you say and say what you mean" attitude that has forged a relationship, not just a contract for a project. Our partners at Helia far exceed our expectations each and every time. So if you're thinking of using Helia, I would highly recommend you give them a try, I am sure you'll be impressed. Please email me if you'd like some more insight into Helia.

Grant Irvine

"Darvin and the folks at Helia were asked to resolve some issues with our phone system software. They provided the necessary support through collaboration and by learning the software from a different market to specifically service our system. Additionally, Helia now provides our IT support services. We are very pleased with the services provided by Helia Tech and Helia Voice."

Al Dhalla

My company has hired Dar for telephone wiring services and yes, he met our expectations but there is something more about Dar that I wish to highlight : He is a not just a true networker but I would say, he is a "connector".

Dar and I have been at many meetings and he has never failed to say to me that he wants me to meet 3 or 4 people that he knows are ideal clients for me and that will make a difference to my business and profits.Without expecting any favors too! Dar goes that extra mile to keep a business relationship nurtured and strengthened.

Ryan Dockrill

Helia has been fabulous for us as a company. We have used them on five different projects now, and I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of the deliverables, but in some ways more importantly their can-do attitude and ability to implement our ideas when others thought them impossible.

I recommend them whole heartedly. Helia Technologies is a company that over-delivers on every aspect of the project at hand at a price point that is hard to beat.

Please email me if you have any questions about Helia Technologies.

Apart from being a perfect gentleman , Darvin is a highly detailed IT perfectionist.A pleasure to work with.
