Managed Services for Manufacturing and Service Industry
“We were facing a number of technicaly issues that were impeding our growth. Network performance was a big issue with our employees, as our systems were so slow that our employees often complained that it took them a good deal of time to complete tasks. This problem was compounded by the fact that our internet connection was slow and our file share system was difficult to navigate—accessing a given file could take an extraordinary amount of time.
Rather than spending money hiring and training a full-scale IT team to handle the upgrades we wanted to make to our systems, we decided to explore managed technology services.
NetStandard’s breadth and depth of expertise has enabled JCI to more efficiently and effectively remediate technology issues, resulting in more timely operational improvement and increased satisfaction for both employees and customers. JCI has grown 35 percent in the last two years, and we now have the infrastructure in place to support continued exponential growth. The move to managed services with NetStandard has given us the power to double our business in the next five years, and we have the confidence that our systems will be able to support that growth.”
