OUR DATA IS OUR BUSINESS
Cuni, Rust & Strenk (CRS) provide a streamlined approach to actuarial consulting with extensive pension and retiree medical plan experience. The firm was experiencing limited functionality and suboptimal productivity due to constraints on their technology. To enhance their employees’ productivity and protect their valuable client data, they needed to update their IT infrastructure.
Since its founding in 1988, CRS has grown into a multi-million dollar operation that requires reliable IT support from a professional organization.
BRINGING TECHNOLOGY TO TODAY’S STANDARDS
Cuni, Rust & Strenk routinely utilize a proprietary software application to assist with complex actuarial calculations. Their infrastructure did not meet this software’s requirements. CRS hired PRO OnCall to perform a small office network analysis to develop a technology roadmap to meet the demands of the business. After thoroughly assessing the technology situation at CRS, PRO OnCall developed and presented a solution that met CRS’s productivity and quality standards while accommodating their budget. PRO OnCall also addressed CRS’s need for ongoing technology support with the IT Partnership program.
MATCHING TECHNOLOGY TO BUSINESS NEEDS
CRS is heavily reliant on data, so PRO OnCall recommended a three-part plan to secure and stabilize the network. Data stability, backup redundancy and security were among the top priorities. PRO OnCall migrated user data to a redundant server platform, increasing stability and security of valuable client data.
PRO OnCall was able to automate daily and weekly data backups to provide a second layer of data redundancy and security. Firewall technology, high-level corporate antivirus software, and business-wide email spam filtration were deployed to further stabilize and secure the network. Finally, the ongoing support program provides a final layer of continuous security and performance monitoring.
Through careful planning and execution, PRO OnCall enabled Cuni, Rust & Strenk to accomplish their objectives and realize multiple benefits, including:
- Improved functionality
- Decreased downtime
- Compliance with data protection standards
- Scalability for future growth
