Al Koop, President at 4L Communications, hired 365 Technologies to streamline IT processes and systems and get effective and efficient help-desk support at a fixed monthly budget.

What led you to hire 365 Technologies?

We had one person looking after our IT needs. It was a concern that a single person oversaw our entire infrastructure – and it was expensive and incredibly inefficient. This situation led us to hire 365 Technologies.

What makes 365 Technologies stand out for you?

In one word, professionalism. 365 Technologies has a team looking after our IT needs. They review our processes and inefficiencies, keep our systems current and provide proactive solutions to our network – and it’s all done at a fixed-monthly cost, which adds incredible value and allows us to plan for future growth.

What part of 365 Technologies service is most appealing?

It’s their help desk, which our entire team can access by phone or a service ticket. This means every person within our organization is empowered to get front-line IT service.

What impact has 365 Technologies' services had on your company?

They ensure productivity in our company by keeping systems up and running, networks connected, and updates proactively installed on workstations.
