Medicine Hat’s elite accounting firm improves operational reliability with virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI).
As a fast-growing accounting firm, servicing clients of all sizes, EBT required an infrastructure that could keep up with its growing organization.
Using an outdated Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environment was causing challenges which was directly impacting reliability and efficiency. As a fast-paced accounting firm delivering specialized services, the speed and performance of their technology infrastructure is critical to their success.
Partek was able to deliver a VDI environment that could meet the needs of their substantial workforce with diverse computing needs while ensuring operational performance for resource-intensive accounting software.
The modern accounting world is fully reliant on IT.
As a substantially sized accounting firm, with a diverse group of computing needs, Partek needed to find a solution that could facilitate multiple locations, work from home (WFH) end-users, as well as ensure operational reliability and performance for resource-intensive accounting software.
The accounting industry is also highly regulated, with strict data security and compliance requirements. Ensuring data security while enabling remote access to sensitive financial information was a key challenge to overcome.
Finally, EBT was looking for an investment in their infrastructure for the future. They wanted to invest in a robust server, storage, and network solution that would serve the needs of the organization for years to come. Minimizing downtime during the migration was key to the success of this project.
Migrating to a VDI environment allowed EBT to scale computing resources on-demand, ensuring high performance for all employees, even during peak workloads. Plus, resource-intensive accounting software ran smoothly, improving productivity.
VDI allowed centralized control over data, ensuring compliance with industry regulations. Furthermore, advanced security features such as encryption and multi-factor authentication enhanced data protection.
While the initial investment was significant, EBT will achieve long-term cost savings by reducing hardware maintenance costs. Downtime during the migration was minor due to the planning and processes implemented prior and during the project.
