CHANGE MANAGEMENT... GONE RIGHT

CHANGE MANAGEMENT... GONE RIGHT

This 80-member accounting firm found itself struggling to keep up with the demand of a rapidly progressing and competitive technological world. The firm's existing IT vendor (then) was in crisis management mode constantly wrestling with their IT environment. They were restoring backups to already glitching systems while trying to keep the employees productive despite slow connectivity and random network instability.

Forward progress seemed impossible. The new IT Director was not able to to implement functionality improvements nor productivity gains with technology because IT infrastructure always seemed to be in crisis or some form of recovery.

In came 714 to the rescue, discovering and thwarting hackers during the initial meeting (before even signing a contract with the firm). At the onset, 714 performed an audit of existing systems and even discovered some nefarious behavior of the existing IT vendor. 714 put together a plan to replace the weak hardware links, upgrade the bandwidth with fiber, provide secure access to the systems from anywhere, and even improve some workflows; all this at below competitive cost structure.

"714 immediately bolstered out cyber defenses and quickly transitioned us out of the crisis mode that we had been accustomed to for years. The transformation that 714 undertook should have taken years. They did it in months. We stopped managing technical issues and focused on our business, which moved us upward in growth."
