A long-standing manufacturing company in Goshen, IN recently experienced a disaster that left them without a facility and without their computer network. With over 25 years of experience in their industry, this Goshen business has always strived to give personal attention to every customer who walked in their front door. When their worst-case-scenario became a reality, they needed the same level of commitment and service from their Goshen IT provider. Already a client for a decade, this team of manufacturing experts immediately called Blue Star vCIO Grant Martin and the team of Goshen IT experts from Blue Star, Inc. to bring them back from disaster.
When this reputable and prosperous Goshen manufacturing company fell victim to a terrible fire that destroyed most of its only manufacturing facility, including their computers, their first call was to Blue Star, Inc. They knew they could trust the Blue Star Team to restore their data and get their network up and running in no time.
“The working relationship was established before I even started at Blue Star,” says Blue Star vCIO, Grant Martin. “So, they’ve been here since I started and this company really appreciates the way we focus on best practices and processes to ensure their network stays running”.
Martin has worked closely with the company’s CEO to balance his desire to stay involved in IT while letting Martin and the Blue Star team do the heavy lifting. While the CEO has a knack for technology himself, he knows when he needs to stop and let Blue Star take the wheel. When a fire hit the company’s manufacturing facility, Blue Star took the wheel. The team was able to use the manufacturing company’s remaining businesses in the area to fix the network and execute a smooth recovery.
“We didn’t waste any time,” says Blue Star vCIO, Grant Martin. “We helped get the company’s leadership team back up and running the very next day with borrowed equipment. Then, in less than a week after the fire, we had brand new replacement equipment for the whole company”.
“For us, it’s about following through to the very end and providing unparalleled IT support for Goshen businesses,” continues Martin. “I am still working closely with the CEO to ensure recovery efforts are reliable and determine the best course of action for what comes next”.
Blue Star isn’t just responsive to disaster either. When this manufacturing company acquired another company in 2016, Blue Star worked side-by-side with the company’s CEO to integrate the new network. They consolidated resources to the central server at the main office and used a fiber point-to-point to connect them back to the central resources. Blue Star replaced most of the computers to bring them into line with Blue Star’s best practices and helped the staff settle into the new environment.
The Outcome: Reliable and Successful IT Strategies that Lead to Long-Term Success for Goshen Manufacturers and Long-Standing Client Relationships
To this day, this manufacturing company is one of Blue Star’s fully managed clients. This means that they provide full-scope, Goshen-based IT support for all servers, networks, workstations and all other equipment. Blue Star provides backup services, Office 365 support, 24/7 monitoring and all other IT support for this Goshen company. The company has a dedicated Systems Engineer, Network Administrator and Virtual CIO, thanks to Blue Star.
“As the vCIO for Goshen businesses,” said Martin, “I regularly meet with CEO’s to discuss IT strategy and how it can enhance their work.”
