A 35-year-old NC-based custom metal fabrication and engineering firm was suffering from an aging IT infrastructure and poor support. They needed modern hardware and cost effective monitoring and support solution to help them remediate current issues and prevent future problems.

Solution

Solace recommended our Proactive IT Monitoring and Help Desk solution in addition to a general technology refresh. Problems due to outdated computers and software made maintenance and support very expensive.

Once the old machines and software were remediated, Eastridge deployed monitoring and remote support agents across the company’s IT infrastructure. A single fixed price monthly budget was established to field any support or downtime issues that would arise over the term of the agreement.
