Uncovered outdated technology and insufficient network security, leading to operational halts and dependency on manual backups.

Faced frequent server outages, halting operations for hours and relying on inadequate technical support.

01 The Problem

When Renascence IT Consulting first assessed Child Truck Line’s needs in 2018, they found they were operating with dated equipment, minimal security, poor technical support, and no consistent technological standards or processes. The old server required nightly backup that someone on the team took home with them. When the server was offline, which occurred a few times a month, they were dependent on one person to provide access and that often stopped their operation for several hours.

According to the company’s president, James Carroll, “We were constrained by an archaic system, relying on inferior equipment and technology with a rat’s nest of wires in the backroom. We knew we needed to make significant changes so we could compete and grow.”

02 The Solution

Renascence IT Consulting helped Child Truck Line secure their data by leveraging cloud services, establish those much-needed processes and modernize their technical infrastructure. They also designed and oversaw the buildout of a large Wi-Fi network throughout the new warehouse for live inventory scanning and machine management.

Successfully migrated all of Child Truck Line’s data to a cloud-based platform, transforming their technology infrastructure into a modern, agile, and scalable system.
