Connecticut-based Manufacturer Solves IT and Technology Issues with Cooperative Systems

THE CHALLENGE

Like many manufacturers, Magnatech operated their IT systems and
that worked well for them and was functional. However, they found that
over time their equipment and software aged, their cabling needed
replacing to expand their office space, and their technology capacity
started to breakdown. Lastly, an overdue upgrade to their ERP system
exacerbated the need to overhaul their network and software.

THE RESULT

As a solution to their IT struggles, Magnatech partnered with Cooperative
Systems to design and implement an overhaul by upgrading all PC’s to
Windows 10 from Windows 7, move their server and network
infrastructure, and install new switches and cabling for a secure network.
Magnatech also shifted from onsite Exchange to Office 365 for email and
Office Applications and implemented a move to the cloud for security and
business continuity planning. The final project in initially engaging
Magnatech was upgrading their ERP solution system which had become
unstable and non-supported.

The team at Cooperative Systems worked to keep outages to a minimum
during the initial IT upgrades including working off hours when needed.
The Cooperative Systems team completed the network overhaul which
resulted in a stable, secure, and efficient environment.
