INSOURCED IT SOLUTIONS
Stanislawski & Harrison is a large Pasadena-based accounting firm ranked as one of the top 40 CPAs in the area by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The firm needed to stabilize, update, and prepare their IT infrastructure for rapid growth. Cal Net’s team of IT professionals were available at all times to provide technical management, implementation of upgrades, and troubleshooting.
Serving clients nationwide, S&H had tripled in size within a very short time, and the workload required full-time IT support. Director of Operations, Michelle Johnson, who has worked with the S&H for over two decades, understands the importance of keeping up to date with technology trends to stay compliant and ensure that their clients’ data is protected around the clock.
“S&H split from a larger firm and our IT components were extremely piece-meal and not operating at optimal levels. After hearing about Cal Net through the Cal Society of CPAs, we brought them in to stabilize, update, and essentially help us prepare for rapid growth.”
By implementing our Cal Complete Plan, which provides the bandwidth of an entire IT department at a fraction of the cost, S&H was free to focus on the core aspects of their business. Our team of IT professionals is also available 24/7 to provide technical management, implementation of upgrades, and troubleshooting.
“Cal Net was a Godsend because they have made my job easier, given the company peace of mind, and provided stability and innovation that directly impacts our clients. I am able to get a hold of IT support and have access to four physical IT engineers daily – because we work around the clock, particularly during heavy seasons, this aspect is crucial.”
Today, we manage over 100 types of accounting and business software for S & H, continually upgrading out of date systems and servers, implementing disaster recovery protocols, and keeping the firm operating with little to no downtime.
“Cal Net has truly given us a competitive edge that we couldn’t have on our own. The amount of time and energy they spend creating valuable channel partnerships, obtaining certifications, and ultimately remaining educated about IT innovations is something that wouldn’t be possible with one internal S&H IT personnel. And to top it off…their customer service is impeccable! They treat S&H like we are their only client. It doesn’t feel like they are ‘outsiders’ or ‘experts’ who are annoyed with our questions and inability to understand ‘tech talk’. They are truly part of our team – and that aspect has made a huge impact on the overall success of our business.”
