The Colorado telecommunications company lowers costs and increases efficiency for its team of telecom consultants utilizing enterprise cloud services through Google Apps for Business.
Vertex Innovations, Inc. is focused on providing the telecommunications industry with a new standard in consulting. Vertex fills technical and HR needs in the fields of Wireless Services, RF Engineering, Transport Engineering, DAS Engineering, MSC, Datacenter, Central Office Construction Services, Network Integration Services, Granite/Xng Database Services and Cell Site Construction. Every day, the company’s highly-skilled employees manage networks and large-scale projects for carriers around the country. As the company grew to meet their clients’ needs, their internal IT needs required a significant upgrade in operations to meet the demand.
Vertex means a corner or a point where lines meet. The company as a whole had met a critical point operationally where their IT structure no longer met the needs of the expanding company, the clients they serve, or the industry they so passionately represent.
Vertex has 45 users in multiple locations who desperately wanted to replace dated internal servers – essentially a complete turnaround in back-office operations. Instead of spending a bunch of money on individual technology licenses for software and maintenance, they wanted to deploy Google Apps for Business to replace Windows SBS and Exchange 2007.
The migration to Google Apps for Business was managed by Accent Plus through NeoNova who also provided additional training and support services. Vertex also converted their entire Exchange Message Store including additional PST archives. Prior to the migration, their users were on two separate domains (.net and .com). Those have now been consolidated into a single domain without losing any of their existing or inbound email. This move into Google Apps for Business allows Vertex to operate more efficiently and communicate more fluid as one company.
