Spotlight on Business - Hits Tech

We live in a technological world, but what about those who aren’t quite so tech-savvy? Or maybe you’re just too busy to figure it all out. It’s often difficult to navigate a constantly changing industry that is so crucial to your business. Instead of falling behind, let the experts at Hits Tech handle it for you.

Hits Tech, which is based in Conover, a western N.C. town near Hickory, recently opened an eastern N.C. office upstairs at 123 Harper Ave., Carolina Beach, where Communication Director Judy Royal works. This is in addition to its Conover headquarters and Cary location. The company is notable for the Information Technology industry in that its CEO and majority owner is a woman, Sandra Loftin, whose husband and son both work along-side her in addition to business partner Cyrus Hurley.

Those who have attended a Fire on the Dock chef contest event know Hits Tech as the official IT solutions provider of the entire Competition Dining series, which travels around the state. Other clients include various municipal projects, including the City of High Point and the High Point Furniture Market, both of which used Meraki devices to deliver wireless capabilities to a large number of users.

“The City of High Point used Hits Tech to design and implement a downtown wireless system that would support an influx of 85,000 people during its spring and fall international furniture markets,” said Steve Lingerfelt, Director of Information Technology Services for the City of High Point. “The Wi-Fi system was so successful that we brought them back again to implement a system at several of our Parks and Recreation facilities. The Meraki system that they provided was the fastest and most economical of all the systems that we had looked at. I would highly recommend the professionals at Hits Tech for fast and affordable Wi-Fi solutions.”

Our other areas of specialty include hosting, cloud computing, virtual helpdesk, network design and installation, and disaster recovery. We have a secure data center in Conover out of the hurricane zone, so we can keep all your crucial information protected from the hazards of the vulnerable coastal area. Our motto is “Rock Steady. Cloud Ready.”

Our goal is to provide businesses of all sizes the opportunity to maximize their return on investment with innovative solutions, all of which are expertly designed and customized to fit your organization's needs. We currently serve clients in 12 states across the country.

Spotlight on Business - Lakeside Embroidery

Lakeside Embroidery is a locally owned and operated business specializing in custom embroidery and monogramming. Originally established in the spring of 2009 by Sue Winchell, the home business then had a lakeside view in Lake Wylie, SC. In the fall of 2011, Sue and her husband, George, became residents of the Wilmington/ Carolina Beach area where they had long enjoyed vacationing.

Dedicated to excellence in embroidery, Lakeside Embroidery gives your items a personal touch. We can help you find the perfect solution for professionalizing your office attire and advertising your business. Sue enjoys the creative and technical process involved in turning logos and other artwork into digital form and creating the final stitched product.

We offer unique gift ideas, items for your home and wardrobe, and can even accessorize your next vacation or themed party. Nothing is outsourced; all items are made in-house. The same time and attention to detail is given to a single order as multiples.

Customizable items include t-shirts and polo shirts, jackets and other outerwear, caps, bath and kitchen towels, baby items, bags and totes of all sorts, luggage tags and key chains, and koozies for bottles, cans, or wine bottles.

Lakeside Embroidery also proudly supports charities such as United Way, Relay for Life, and Mo-ped to Memphis (St. Jude Children’s Hospital).

The Savannah Inn is a 22 room oceanfront motel in Carolina Beach. We are ideally located across the street from the Marina, and two blocks down the road from the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. We are walking distance to all of the shops, restaurants, and nightlife in the downtown area. Our southern-style Inn is also situated directly on the beach, and has a private walkway right to the sand.

The Savannah Inn features 22 individually appointed beach-themed rooms. All 22 of the rooms are unique in their d├ęcor, no two rooms are alike. More than half of the rooms have full kitchens, complete with fridge, stove, and microwave. All rooms are centrally located around the Inn’s outdoor pool and many have private balconies that look out towards the ocean. We have plenty of outdoor seating to sit and relax and enjoy the beach.

We are a very family-friendly Inn and love to see our guests enjoying the sun and surf and all that a beach vacation has to offer. The Inn has a very relaxed atmosphere to it, and feels more like a home away from home. And we have retained that true southern charm that makes our guests continue to return year after year.
