Renascence IT Consulting is a managed services provider serving the Bay Area that has been reducing risk, increasing productivity and boosting the bottom line of businesses since 2010. Established in 1995, Accurate Firestop & Insultation (AFI) provides firestop and insulation as a subcontractor in Northern California. With approximately 25 employees, they are headquartered in Pleasanton, Calif.

01 The Problem

With most of their business functions in the Cloud, AFI was paying about $900 a month. Because their entire team worked in the office, the network couldn’t handle the load and their productivity suffered. They couldn’t complete tasks in a reasonable time frame. For example, what should take five minutes on their computers was taking up to 15 minutes. Their networking equipment was also installed improperly, causing slowdowns in connecting to the machines and the Internet.

Around $900/month in external network expenses.

Long wait times & reduced productivity due to insufficient network capabilities

02 The Solution

In 2018, AFI hired Renascence IT Consulting. They brought a server in house and loaded their software locally. They also cleaned up their internal network issues.

Created an in-house server to improve network performance and speed.

Cleaned up internal networking issues to reduce downtime and improve productivity.

03 The Result

After the initial cost for a server and backups, the new solution cost about half the price they were paying and increased their productivity by at least 60%.

  • Saved the Accurate Firestop & Insulation around 50% of network expenses.
  • Team productivity increased by at least 60%, allowing a faster turnaround.

Client Testimonial

We started our family-owned business in 1995. As we grew, we knew we were vulnerable to costly breaches because we had no employees with true IT expertise. That’s why we hired Renascence in 2018 to manage our computer systems, data and security. Their fraud and phishing training is a real eye opener and has kept us from making expensive mistakes. Organized, detail-oriented and very resourceful, they consider every aspect of our business and are much more than a subcontractor. They are our partner, fully focused on helping us survive and thrive
