About McCormick

McCormick Construction Company is an industrial construction contractor that provides design-build, general contracting, millwright, concrete and crane services to bulk material storage, handling and processes for industries in agriculture, biofuels, mining, milling and other industrial process facilities throughout the U.S. and beyond.

Since 1992, McCormick’s mission has been to build the highest-quality and most efficient facilities possible for its clients and to stand behind its work in terms of construction quality, materials installed and overall client satisfaction.

The Challenge

When McCormick sought help from Thriveon for assistance, their IT infrastructure was operating well without any major issues.

However, they needed a partner with the expertise to provide vital consulting services and help them build a robust IT strategy.

This relationship took them from a good position and made them better and stronger while building a consistent partnership.


McCormick often switched between an internal IT person and managed service providers, and they needed a more permanent IT partner with a strategic focus on the future.


We helped them develop an IT strategy

When McCormick started working with Thriveon, they didn’t have an IT strategy. We first established a chief information officer (CIO) to direct what they should be looking at and considering for their comprehensive IT strategy.


Then we evaluated their SharePoint usage

McCormick had previously used SharePoint but wasn’t satisfied with the results. We changed some security policies and tightened them up. We started conducting a SharePoint size reduction to help save data space.



And we established a new employee portal

McCormick previously had three different apps for payroll, scheduling and portal planning. We helped them implement one portal called Paylocity, which not only reduced costs but also significantly improved efficiency.

The Results

In one year, McCormick has viewed Thriveon as a trusted partner and consultant with unlimited use:

We moved McCormick to the Paylocity app, saving them about $20,000 a year and improving efficiency
Over the last year, McCormick had a 97% satisfaction rate in their support tickets
Thriveon is currently exploring phone options that will partner well with Microsoft Teams
We are also working on an ISP and phone review
In 2024, Thriveon will audit their systems and reduce software costs and ERP
We consulted them on numerous applications, including scheduling, Microsoft 365 and Power BI

"Thriveon corrected the issue very quickly and gave exactly what I was looking for. I am happy with the assistance I received in completing this issue."
