Friends of Tuckerman Ravine Ski Trip

Chamonix, France March 15-22, 2015

Nestled in a deep alpine valley in the shadows of Europe’s highest peak, the Mont Blanc, Chamonix is known as the “Alpine Sports Capital” of the world. Chamonix is perfect for all level skiers from beginners to the most hardened backcountry/off-piste experts. Thanks to the Aiguille du Midi, the resort has the world’s highest lift accessed vertical drop (9,200 feet). After a day of skiing, Chamonix’s historic alpine village is ideal for a variety interests ranging from shopping to fine dining along with late night  bars and dance clubs. Chamonix also has a rich sports history, having hosted the first ever Winter Olympic Games in 1924 and offers world class winter sports in every discipline.

In collaboration with ProActive Tours, the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine sponsors an annual Chamonix ski trip for our members that can’t be beat. We have put together two custom ski trips to choose from. A portion of the proceeds from each reservation goes to support the mission of the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine.

BOSTON, MA – Nov. 10, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ – Continuum®, the industry’s only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, is helping its Managed Services Provider (MSP) partners to assist their SMB clients with gaining control and increasing security of their IT environment as well as developing polices around data access with the launch of Sync247™, a true business-grade file sync and share solution, initially for exclusive use by its MSP partners. With Continuum’s signature pay-as-you-grow pricing plan and partner enablement tools, Continuum is making it effortless and profitable for its MSPs to manage file sync and share applications for SMB clients with business-grade security and end user simplicity, while growing their recurring revenue stream.

“Employees are increasingly using personal mobile devices and consumer grade collaboration applications for accessing work files and unintentionally introducing risk into the workplace,” said Doug O’Flaherty, Cloud Product Director at Continuum. “As their clients’ trusted advisor, our MSPs can help their clients’ transition to the cloud easily and securely with Sync247, while also expanding their services.”

Sync247 is the easiest-to-use and easiest-to-manage file sync and share solution – built for business, designed for users and packaged specifically for Continuum’s MSPs and IT solution providers. The intuitive design requires little to no user training so clients collaborate easily with colleagues, vendors and customers, sharing files instantly and syncing automatically to be productive on any device. Per usual, MSPs stay in control with a single view to manage all clients with Continuum’s multi-client management platform.

“For clients who need to send and receive files on a regular basis, Sync247 is a slam dunk,” said Gary Harlam, Owner of Technology Advisory Group, delivering professional support for hardware and network operations and a Continuum partner. “For our employees who work from home, this is a safer alternative because we can now regulate who does what and who takes what information home.”

Sync247 was first unveiled and demonstrated to partners at Continuum’s user conference, Navigate 2014, held on Sunday, September 21 – Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston.
