From surveys to architectural design and engineering to project management, this client can manage the entire construction management process for its customers. Their growing team of more than 225 work from company offices, client offices, home offices, and hotels across America using numerous cutting edge technologies. Since its formation in 2010, they have served the unique needs of its clients in thousands of expansion, branding, and construction update projects.
In 2013, when 56 employees separated from a larger company, they reached out to Enable Technology Group to provide strategic technology services and management to support the new entity. The requirements were clear: the project needed to be completed quickly as the timeframe from finalizing the separation to new entity status was short. With a rapidly growing staff and mounting requirements associated with several new client engagements, the solution also needed to be cost effective so as to maximize their cash position.
Enable created a plan to migrate all of the IT functions that had been handled by the parent company’s IT organization, including email, file services, and system management. The timeline was tight, but with some creative partnering, all 56 employees were able to continue working with minimal downtime. The Enable Technology Group team migrated all of their email and files to Office 365. Enable also needed to be able to configure most systems remotely because only a small handful of the team actually worked at the company’s headquarters in Downers Grove, Illinois or a small design office in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
Since November 2013, they quadrupled in staff, added a new architecture and engineering office and developed leading edge technology-dependent processes that make up the competitive advantage that allows them to serve the most influential brands in the world. Key to that success is the ability to expedite their service offering for new clients and projects. Enable has responded by creating custom deployment processes that allow us to deploy technology to new employees rapidly and remotely.
