This has been our first experience with an outside IT company in a support role, and am I ever glad we chose 365. They have saved hiring a full time IT person, but provide all the benefits that person would bring.

  • The Company

    Established in 2001, Bison Fire Protection Inc. began as a fire extinguisher, and automatic suppression provider to grow into a full service company including fire alarm, and automatic sprinklers. Bison Fire Protection Inc. is quickly becoming the recognized leader in fire alarm and emergency light products – with full service shops in Winnipeg, Thompson, and Regina.

  • The Requirement

    This fast-growing company was relying on manual systems to run their inventory and service delivery. In 2012, Bison Fire made the decision to implement a full ERP system, working with Manitoba’s Quantas Software. As part of this software implementation, Bison engaged 365 to deploy a completely new network infrastructure. The project included deploying several virtual servers; implementation of Microsoft Exchange and migration of Bison’s existing POP3 Email accounts; configuration of a Disaster Recovery solution using Dell’s Appassure; and connecting remote sites over SonicWall VPN tunnels.

The Results

Bison Fire’s investment in technology is paying off in improved efficiencies across their organization. As they continue to grow and expand their business, their technology is supported 24/7 under a 365Care+ Managed Services agreement. This great Manitoba business is delivering peace of mind and protection to their clients – while we deliver Worry-Free IT to them.
