Is your small-to- medium business's IT infrastructure in need of an update? You can trust Alura Business Solutions to get your infrastructure to where it needs to be in order for your organization to reach its goals. Since our start in 2005, we've offered our expert IT consulting services to a wide range of clients. Today, we'd like to give you a few examples of how we've helped businesses overcome a variety of issues so that you can envision how we might be able to assist you:
- AYC Media – AYC Media, a steadily growing marketing and design firm that handles the development of top-level projects for organizations around the globe, sought help with addressing weaknesses in their IT infrastructure, such as the need for a cloud backup strategy and a greater internal network speed. The business was also looking to control their growing asset of files through document management as well as to find new ways to support their customers and projects. After thoroughly assessing the weak points in AYC Media's infrastructure, we worked closely with the client to develop customized IT solutions such as a hybrid cloud strategy, a new firewall and upgraded server hardware. In addition, a new internal domain and file management design with our Cirrus backup strategy were set up. As a result of our IT consulting services, AYC Media now enjoys increased employee productivity, efficient document management and other benefits, allowing them to achieve their business goals.
- Mid-Sized Law Firm #1 – A medium-sized law firm with quickly growing data storage needs and lowered RTO (Recovery Time Objective) requirements was looking for a backup system that would offer secure, round-the-clock recovery their employees and clients could count on. Our Arcus background platform proved to be the perfect solution, as it came with offsite, recovery point and hardware independence enhancements. With this platform, the firm can rest assured that data will be quickly recovered in the event of a device or entire facility failure. Critical data can now be recovered in 15-minute increments rather than once or twice a day, and any server – physical or virtual – can be restored to any hardware. In other words, this mid-sized law firm is now ready for the unexpected.
- Mid-Sized Law Firm #2 – Another medium-sized law firm sought technological improvements in the areas of customer service, response time and lifecycle management. Prior to using our IT consulting services, the firm was using a single-person “IT company” that simply wasn't cutting it. To meet their needs, we started by performing an assessment using NetAudit. After we had identified the issues in the firm's IT infrastructure, we developed a three-year plan to replace it. We also planned to implement a variety of new systems over 10 years to keep the firm up to date on the latest technology. As a result of the infrastructure redesign, the firm experienced an almost immediate spike in productivity as well as greatly improved security. New technologies implemented so far at the firm, which include MXShield and a digital dictation system which can be used both in and out of the office, are helping the attorneys to be more efficient and to better meet the needs of their clients.
As you can see, Alura is committed to helping our clients better their infrastructures so that they can focus on reaching the objectives they've set for their businesses.
