Architectural Firm Upgrades its IT & Simplifies Management
- Client: Chenevert Architects is an architectural design firm that exists to enhance the lives of clients through the creation of inspiring environments. Currently, the firm has locations in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Asheville, NC.
- Situation: After five years of use of company computers and servers, the entire IT infrastructure was in need of being replaced. Chenevert Architects was faced with a enormous capital outlay for the upgrade which would have severely impacted the company’s cash flow.
- Solution: Instead of buying hardware/software/servers/switches and then paying for installation and support, Chenevert Architects enrolled in the TotalCARE program. All employees got brand new PCs, the company got new servers with 5x the capacity, and important services such as accounting and email were migrated to a hybrid cloud.
- Benefit: Employee productivity was immediately increased with new computers, servers and network infrastructure. The business owner was able to deploy capital more effectively towards the growth of the company. Major cost savings were achieved due to standardization of hardware and software. The business practically became hurricane-proof with its accounting, email, and backup in the cloud.
