The Business Challenges:

  • Employees in PBG Financial Services’ new second office needed access to core business applications housed on the firm’s main-office server.
  • Initial efforts to connect via VPN yielded slow data transfers that hampered use of accounting, tax preparation, time tracking, document management and other systems.
  • The new office also needed a cost-effective phone system, and the firm’s legacy backup system needed a refresh to eliminate external hard drive and tape backups.
  • When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, PBG needed to quickly enable employees to work from home.
