Nomination Spotlights David Goodwin’s Work with Enervise
Channel Partners recently announced that Advanced Technology Consulting (ATC) is a finalist for Consultant of the Year as part of the inaugural Channel Partners Excellence in Digital Services Awards.
ATC’s award entry spotlighted the work done on behalf of ATC client, Enervise. ATC’s co-founder and managing partner, David Goodwin, spearheaded the project.
The Excellence in Digital Service Awards recognizes IT consultants who deliver stellar business outcomes on behalf of their clients. Recognition is provided in 10 categories. ATC is also a finalist for the Next-Gen Telecom Award. The Consultant of the Year award specifically recognizes excellence in developing, provisioning and managing personalized, specialized IT services.
Winners will be announced during a reception held as a part of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, April 9-12, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The Digital Services Awards are a reformatted extension of the original Digi Awards. ATC is a four-time Digi Award winner.
A move to the public cloud in early 2018, including business-critical applications and storage, created a serious productivity and customer service issue for Enervise. Enervise is a HVAC service, maintenance, installation and building automation controls expert for many of the Midwest’s premier healthcare, education, industrial institutions and commercial office buildings.
As Enervise lie parallelized and victim of the “spinning wheel,” enter Advanced Technology Consulting’s (ATC) co-founder and managing partner, David Goodwin. With an acute understanding of Enervise’s workloads and storage requirements, Goodwin, acting as a vCIO, made the recommendation to move—uncharacteristic to his norm and that of today’s IT landscape—back to a premised-based data center environment with higher levels of connectivity.
The technology suite recommended by Goodwin provided Enervise with a high-performance, fully managed network. The result was a 50% reduction in monthly costs, which includes equipment amortization associated with the on-premise data center. Employee productivity and output skyrocketed to unprecedented levels.
“Our current solution is way more economical and lightning fast, which has helped us immensely,” says Plouffe. “ATC’s support has been super… responsive, proactive and specialized to our technology and needs. ATC’s project management, procurement and solution implementation was on-schedule, on-budget and, quite frankly, refreshing.”
