Challenge – Needed Upgrades to Increase Uptime and Support Future Scaling
Amiee Lynn was maxing out their IT budget, paying for costly private networks and support, and still experiencing outages. With several offices and virtual centers throughout metropolitan NYC, they were frustrated with the downtime they incurred.
Amiee Lynn needed to expand its capacity to facilitate a merger and prepare for future growth when it acquired a new home goods division. Facing excessive hardware upgrade costs with limited IT resources, they realized that moving to the cloud was imperative for success.
Solution – Fully Integrated Cloud Services Including IaaS, DaaS, UCaaS and SeCaaS
IT Vortex seamlessly migrated Amiee Lynn’s NY and NJ offices and virtual workspaces to their data center in a multi-phased approach.
After the migration, ITV replaced the entire onsite and offsite network infrastructure and implemented a full security solution. The services have led to reduced networking expenses and increased speed, performance, and uptime for the entire team.
Amiee Lynn CTO, Jon Devito, couldn’t be happier with the move – “We didn’t wind up buying any new server equipment or storage. We redid our entire network infrastructure and changed out internet services, and they handled a great deal of that. They were great to deal with, from minute one.”
The entire process was extremely quick – “They ran with the project way faster than we actually anticipated it going. We expected it would take months and months of a transition. They were flawless with what they did.”
“My favorite thing with IT Vortex is the communication. IT Vortex took over all of our telephone systems, as well as helping with the internet VPNs and everything in between. They’d find issues before I’d find them. It was impeccable, the way that they did it.”
Results – Reduced Annual IT Expenses by Over $30K
Since migrating to the cloud, Amiee Lynn has fully embraced the IT Vortex portfolio of cloud-based services. They are realizing the benefits of 99.99% uptime and reliability across their entire IT stack, increasing customer confidence and helping them partner with more clients.
With fully integrated cloud services, Amiee Lynn eliminated almost $50k in annual software and hardware renewals and $8k in costly MPLS connections in the first year alone. They’ve tripled their server speed and performance without having to invest in new hardware. Overall, Aimee Lynn has reduced their IT spending by $30K per year, freeing up financial resources to pursue growth in other areas.
They’ve also added a fully virtualized and cloud-hosted VoIP solution, reducing their communications expenses while improving overall call quality. “When we have our sales reps go out to potential customers, and they can answer phone calls on the fly as if they were at their desk. Just that alone is great… and them being able to do this overseas saves us a ton of money.”
