Experience

Recent Work

Cloud Migration

A company of 50 agents in a Call Center was forced to shut down their physical location due to Covid protocols. We implemented a secure remote solution for the agents to connect remotely into their work computers.  

  • Stage 1: Implemented a secure VPN solution for all staff to connect to computers. We had the company back in business in 3 days. 
  • Stage 2: Looking at their business model, provided with a cloud-based infrastructure design with a complete plan on how to migrate to cloud with  significant savings.  
  • Stage 3: Implemented the plan quickly, with a staff of 50 agents all working remotely in a safe and secure environment, and happy owners with 50% cost savings in overhead and NO rent to pay.  

Centralized Head Office

A client in the warehousing industry underwent significant growth by adding many new locations over the last few years.

Our challenge was to install a network so that all the locations can work together.

We designed and deployed a secure multi-location system to handle their warehousing needs. We implemented a centralized network, enabling the staff of 25 employees to communicate and share information easily and effectively.

Replications

An FX company was looking to implement Site Replication. The company wanted no downtime and needed a secure solution to ensure systems were accessible 24/7.  

We implemented a multi-site solution that runs on AWS and on-site in parallel. We also recommended enabling a failover mode, automatically switching the systems to a standby network if the primary network fails.

    Ali is very knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. He researches, prepares and plans well to ensure that migrations and infrastructure work is completed thoughtfully and meets requirements, but is also patient, friendly and makes himself available when troubleshooting and when unplanned help is needed. He's a true technology and business partner. Ali has managed all of our IT services for over a year, and I can't even imagine how we used to work without him! Highly recommend.
