The Challenge

Helmsman’s dated IT infrastructure needed a complete overhaul to increase efficiency, reduce their IT costs and simplify their network.

 

The Solution

Helmsman’s business is driven by the principles of efficiency. They recognized the importance of server upgrades, the implementation of new file sharing software, a clean-up of user accounts and the removal legacy hardware.

Efficiency and Productivity: Helmsman’s IT is now up-to-date and efficient. They purchased the needed equipment, removed old hardware and added a new virtual server.

Cost Management: Helmsman no longer invests in maintaining outdated server hardware and
software and benefits from fixed and predictable operational IT expenses.

Improved Collaboration: New file server enables employees to easily and securely share files with co-workers, customers, and investors. They can collaborate on documents that are always current and remotely accessible.

 

Implementation
