What they needed:
After doing a full Technology Audit of Steens Dairy, they were doing all of their computer processes through a VPN connection to their parent company’s network and servers. This proved to be painfully slow and often disconnected them throughout the day making work difficult. We recommended they setup their own server allowing most of their processes to be done locally increasing their productivity.
What we provided:
We setup new network hardware to allow them to have wireless throughout the building and also to upgrade and improve their VPN connection to the head office. We acquired a new Dell server and setup Microsoft server to manage their domain locally. We setup new Windows 7 workstations, Apple iPhones and Blackberries and connected them to their Microsoft server. We also managed their third party hardware and collection software on their own server allowing head office to access the data when needed through the VPN. This solution allowed them to run many aspects of the business with much greater control and speed but also allowing the shared connection between both location’s networks and data.
