The value of EBS in today's economy

From the New York Times: Australia announced a $26.5B stimulus package and lowered its benchmark cash arate by a full percentage point to a record low of 3.25 percent.  Japan's central banked announced yesterday a plan to buy up to one trillion yen ($11.1B) of shares that Japanese banks hold in other corporations. 

Microsoft lay-offs no longer rumors, Microsoft announced planned lay-offs over the next 18 month of 5,000 employees which does not include contractors, 1500 laid-off less than two weeks ago.

My point here is that we are all feeling the effects of the economy, from governments to multi-national corporations to midsize businesses to individuals like you and me.  We are trying to save more while spending less as discussed in this NY Times article.  I hear about midsize business concerns and opportunities in today's economy from my parents who own and manage a midsize business, PaperSource Hawaii

Whether seizing opportunities in today's economy or hunkering down and just trying to survive, money is tight, and many midsize businesses are looking for ways to cut costs and increase productivity, sometime with less workers.  EBS helps midsize business with BOTH, not just one, but EBS requires a slightly higher initial server infrastructure investment than typical incremental maintenance.  We have customer evidence of overall cost reduction typically within the first year of deploying EBS, not just breaking even on your investment but creating additional savings.  Of course, you need to evaluate if our customers and evidence fits your specific situation, but our case studies and testimonials show significant savings.   Our evidence also supports measurable increased productivity of both end-users and IT Professionals.
