GRAND BLANC – Decades of experience stand behind a local business which almost anyone who has ever had a copy machine might know personally. Brady’s Business Systems, which has been a Grand Blanc feature for more than 25 years, is owned by Danny Brady who previously worked two decades for Stockton Office Systems.
Brady’s is keeping up with the times, and recently expanded to include full service of all office machines—including computing, Cloud and mobile computing services, as well as IT management solutions— a one stop shop for any machinery need.
Although well known for contracting with big companies in Genesee county, such as Genesys and Hurley Medical Center, Brady’s also serves nine other counties in the mid-Michigan area. According to Eric Farrand, Brady’s Marketing Manager, they have created and implemented more than 6,000 business solutions custom designed to each client.
Farrand said the expansion occurred as a result of the recent acquisition of AP Sites, an IT firm in the Bay City area, which included the owner, CIO and IT specialist, Pete Avery. He explained that rather than have businesses rely on a “If it breaks—get it fixed” method of managing systems, that BBS could help them with a comprehensive maintenance and regular service plan.
Business owners need not worry about losing their current IT staff, as Brady’s will implement a system which incorporates them as well as repurposing existing equipment if needed. Where businesses have strengths, Farrand said they will include those as well as shore up areas needing improvement.
Additonally, Brady’s will be sponsoring multiple Disaster Recovery and Planning seminars—something especially important in the world of high technology and for medical and secondary businesses.
Attendee’s will learn how they can back up their entire business in the case of a fire, water damage or severe weather incident, making it easier to come back from a catastrophic event. The next seminar is scheduled to be held in Saginaw, but there will be one held in Genesee County soon — possibly at Warwick Hills, Farrand said.
“Brady’s, as a whole, is always on the leading edge of technology,” Farrand said. He added they are ready to service both existing and new customers in maneuvering the ins and outs of the IT world at whatever stage their business is in.
Brady’s is also a proud supporter of local charities such as the Eastern Michigan Food Bank and the Salvation Army. They can be contacted for more information on their services or the Disaster Recovery workshops at their Grand Blanc office at 8173 Embury Rd. (between Grand Blanc and Cook Road) or by phone (810) 606-0080, or on-line www.bbsbradys.com/
