Architectural Woodwork Manufacturer, Atlanta, GA
Our client is a $20 million per year architectural woodwork manufacturer located in the metro Atlanta area. Before SCA’s involvement, the client’s network consisted of 1 server and 40 computers. The network was setup and maintained by their Controller with help from an Atlanta IT consulting company and a friend of the family. The network infrastructure was unstable and in disarray. There was no scheduled server or workstation maintenance, no hardware or software standards and no network user polices or procedures in place. SCA was brought in to stabilize the network infrastructure and to install and support new servers needed for major software additions. SCA has since installed and supported a new file server, a Timberline accounting server, an ADP payroll server, a fail-over virtual server and a proprietary inventory/time tracking server. SCA has installed or replaced over 70 workstations, stabilized the network infrastructure, improved network security, and provided timely and effective end-user support. The client has experienced zero server downtime. By outsourcing their IT support the client is now able to focus on their core business and accounting duties. SCA currently supports 6 servers and over 70 workstations for $40,000 per year, which is approximately half the cost of a full-time IT person.
The biggest benefit in working with SCA is confidence in knowing that the issue at hand will be resolved quickly, seamlessly and without constantly having to follow up. Open communication as far as different options, costs and pros/cons for each solution has also been appreciated. If someone was on the fence about choosing SCA as their IT firm, I would say to do it. They have a great team of knowledgeable engineers keeping you up to date with latest technology, trends and threats.Jacques Gouws
