The Sigma Computer Services in Concord, NH is taking the wraps off its newest service: the Beerwahs, a digital office space.
It’s a small but very efficient space.
Located at the corner of St. Peter Street and Main Street, it’s a two-bedroom apartment, with an outdoor patio, a heated pool, a small laundry room, a living room, kitchenette, dining room, and more.
The BeerwAH is a digital workspace that runs on the same server platform as Sigma computers, but unlike Sigma, you can access your office files and files in a secure manner, too.
To start, you register for a membership, and then you can use your account to login with your email address and password.
When you’re done, you will be able to access your files from your desk, and you can even take a screenshot.
That’s all there is to it.
All of that, including access to your files and folders.
For now, you won’t be able access your file management tools, such as the Dropbox service.
But when they are updated, Sigma will be the only one.
“I’ve been using the Dropbox client for years now,” said Sarah, who is a graduate student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of New Hampshire.
“It’s always been a great service for me.
But I was so excited to learn that Sigma is adding support for Dropbox in the BeerWahs.”
So, why did Sigma get the gig?
The BeerWah is a new concept for Sigma.
The company has been offering its products to companies in several locations around the country for more than a decade.
But, it has never done it in New Hampshire, said James R. Schaffer, Sigmascot, the company’s vice president of global customer experience and communications.
“We’ve been really excited to come here, and have been working on this for a number of years,” he said.
In 2008, Sigscot was acquired by a new company called Sigmastar.
Sigmashars was the first digital-only business in the Boston area to offer a desktop-only PC.
At that time, it had a handful of employees, but the company quickly grew to nearly 100 employees, said Schaffer.
The new company took a different approach to digital, with its own software and hardware that ran on its own server platform.
SigsCot offered its desktop-oriented PC as an “office suite” for corporate clients.
It also provided a cloud-based, full-featured Office 365 suite to customers who wanted to use the suite in an office setting.
“This is a great way to expand Sigmas digital offerings to more of our customers, and it gives us the flexibility to expand those into other offices,” Schaffer said.
The beerwah is just the latest addition to Sigmaster’s portfolio.
The brand has more than 30 locations across the U.S., as well as other locations in New England.
“When we first started out in the late ’90s, it was just one store,” said John L. Johnson, Sargeant’s vice chairman of corporate affairs.
“The beerwahs are the first thing you notice when you come in the door.
But as we expanded our customer base and our business, we realized that they are a great fit for our overall business.”
The company now operates in 13 states, as well, including New Hampshire and Connecticut.
Sargeants new location is located at 705 Main St., Concord, New Hampshire 03302.
