Our assessment

 

  • Rapid company growth, including doubling the number of staff members almost overnight, meant their technology and infrastructure no longer met their needs.
  • A local server was unable to keep up with the significant increase in workload.
  • Suitable computer needed to be custom built to cater for the needs of high-end graphics software.
  • CUSP needed a new phone system and a network that could connect their office, which was in two separate buildings.
  • A high-speed wireless network was required, able to be accessed throughout the office.
  • With this network, real-time security and protection would need to be implemented to keep the company safe.
