Never settle for mediocre when it comes to your business’s IT

Client Description

Case Study: How we supercharged security and productivity for ITS transportation | Varay Managed IT, El Paso & San Antonio, TXInternational Transportation Services, Inc. (ITS) is an El Paso based logistics company that takes pride in delivering quality international transportation services through technology-supported safety and innovative, value-added solutions.

 

The Challenge

Prior to working with Varay, ITS had an offsite IT manager that serviced their account by accessing servers located offsite. ITS began to notice it took a disconcertingly long time for their service provider to detect and respond to system failures and glitches. Not only was this lack of conscientiousness annoying, but it also placed their entire system at dire risk.


A trustworthy IT service provider can protect you from cyber attacks | Varay Managed IT, El Paso & San Antonio, TX“We were not protected against cyber threats or system breakdowns. We risked losing all of our data if the system crashed,” says Zayra Mendoza, director of business affairs for ITS.


A catastrophic event like a system crash or malicious attack could have taken ITS off the road for good, but sometimes the day-to-day struggle of keeping everything organized also deserves to be addressed.


ITS knew there had to be more efficient ways to organize and communicate across their administration and their large team.


As these stressors built up, ITS knew that if they were going to maintain their industry reputation as leaders in innovation, it was time for a managed IT service provider who would go the extra mile to protect their data and help them stay organized.

 

Our Solution

We sat down and listened to ITS’ needs and challenges. Then we analyzed their system and identified some significant areas of vulnerability. Next, we created a plan to secure their data and boost their efficiency.


Here’s what we did:

  • Helped them migrate to Office 365 to supercharge productivity

  • Installed onsite servers

  • Took over systems administration and maintenance

  • Increased their layers of security against outside threats

  • Introduced them to the joys of having rapid, engaged customer service from a responsive IT service provider


Because we never just consider our work done and walk away, we also have regular consults and check-ins to make sure ITS is always performing with peak efficiency and security.


“With Varay we have sealed some of the gaping holes that made us vulnerable and outdated,” says Zayra.

 

The Results

We are pleased to say that ITS is now trucking along better than ever. They now can focus on providing excellent service to their customers because our stellar managed IT service is always just a tech support call away.


“Varay provides quick and reliable service to our problems and questions. We’re now protected against outside threats and system failures that cause permanent damage to productivity,” says Zayra.


ITS now enjoys:

  • Rapid, reliable IT support

  • Fast onsite server access

  • A secure, monitored network

  • Confidence in the strength of their cybersecurity

  • Instant organization and communication through Office 365

  • Regular guidance from IT experts
