ABNA Case Study

16 July, 2021

Background:

With 18 years of experience in the civil engineering industry and multiple awards as one of the best and fastest-growing engineering rms in the region, ABNA has signi cantly contributed to the growth and urban development of St. Louis and other cities in both Missouri and Illinois.

Among ABNA’s successful projects are the I-64/40 design-build projects in the St. Louis area, the Lindbergh Boulevard Tunnel construction beneath Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and the MetroLink cross-county extension. ABNA’s breadth of services and commitment to exceed clients’ expectations has led the company to its rapid growth.

Problem:

Throughout ABNA’s success, however, company leadership noticed that their technology environment was not meeting their increased IT system requirements and demands. In response, ABNA made efforts to improve their IT solutions by:

  • Hiring an in-house IT resource
  • Sed porta a turpis sed congue. Sed commodo, nibh in bibendum ullamcorper, dolor libero venenatis nulla, eget lobortis.

  • Investing in technology upgrades
  • Sed porta a turpis sed congue. Sed commodo, nibh in bibendum ullamcorper, dolor libero venenatis nulla, eget lobortis.

  • Outsourcing part of their IT responsibilities and securing a server maintenance contract
  • Sed porta a turpis sed congue. Sed commodo, nibh in bibendum ullamcorper, dolor libero venenatis nulla, eget lobortis.

Soon the inevitable happened – the same server that was under the maintenance contract crashed, leaving ABNA’s IT system down for three days, heavily impacting the rm’s productivity.

Solution:

With a clear interest in new technology solutions, ABNA attended a cloud computing seminar featuring a presentation about CompleteCloud. ABNA’s leadership learned about its fundamentals and applications, which entailed eliminating ABNA’s hardware dependency and implementing an ef cient cloud solution. More speci c suggestions included the addition of 12 CAD thin clients, 30 general-purpose thin clients and a wireless LAN.

After reviewing the recommendations and receiving a compelling reference from one of our current clients, ABNA was very impressed with the bene ts CompleteCloud offered in a cost-effective package. A cost-bene t analysis between other cloud computing vendors and the CompleteCloud solution convinced ABNA’s president, Nicole Adewale, that this was the best option.

ABNA can now focus on delivering projects and expanding the business, instead of worrying about their technology and system performance.

Results:

Since fully integrating their solution with ABNA’s applications (AutoCad, Microsoft Of ce and Adobe), CompleteCloud has allowed for a substantial increase in productivity, accessibility, exibility and mobile capability. ABNA can now focus on delivering projects and expanding the business, instead of worrying about their technology and system performance. Previously, IT solutions that could be successfully integrated with the AutoCad program were rare for the engineering industry.

Freedom to Focus on their Business

ABNA can now focus on delivering projects and expanding the business, instead of worrying about their technology and system performance. Previously, IT solutions that could be successfully integrated with the AutoCad program were rare for the engineering industry.

CompleteCloud Solution is a Business Partner

ABNA now considers the CompleteCloud solution to be a business partner and team member, instead of simply an IT support provider, thanks to the great communication and relationship maintained. In her own words, ABNA’s Nicole Adewale refers to us as a caring partner that promptly helps with any problem that arises, either over the phone, by email or in person.

Increased productivity with new mobile capabilities

With the mobile capabilities CompleteCloud enables, ABNA’s staff is not concerned about system breakdowns that may threaten productivity and security—managers are now able to take the company’s laptops to any location with a reliable Wi-Fi connection and the company’s operations can continue uninterrupted.
