The Challenge

Horwitz's biggest challenge was that they were more focused on the short-term budget than on their long-term IT strategy and what would benefit the company from an IT perspective.

They sought ways to properly leverage IT on long-term goals and connect with the company’s overall vision while strengthening their cybersecurity stance.

They were also spending twice as much as they needed on outdated, expensive licenses and applications.

Horwitz was looking for a strategic partner so they could leverage technology to move their business forward and shift from a reactive mindset to a proactive one.


We brought perspective to their business goals

Thriveon provided the proactive strategy and guidance that Horwitz was looking for. We laid out how they could improve their IT to benefit them in the long run. We also worked on their IT budget and better aligned it to their overall business goals, improving productivity and efficiency.


Then we looked at their licenses and applications

We took a deep look at their licenses and applications to determine if they had any duplicate or outdated licenses that could be cut. This saved them thousands of dollars annually and increased productivity. Horwitz's printers and file server were also in the same place, which bogged down the network speed. We identified the complex problem and separated them into two servers.


And we strengthened their security gaps

When Horwitz first came to Thriveon, they were in a difficult server lease agreement - we got them a new server, improved their hardware performance and redid their switch infrastructure. From there, we helped button up their security risks and eliminate any potential issues. By identifying pain points, we could finally resolve their issues and secure their systems.

The Results

With the successful implementation of proactive IT planning and strategizing, Horwitz & Company experienced these results:
