An organization’s focus should be on growing business, and the role of technology is to aid in the growth while reducing the operating costs. However, many industries amass technology that later proves to be helping increase operating expenses and clobbering growth. Thereafter starts an arduous journey of upgrading the current technology that further adds the burden on the finance department’s coffers and the organization’s resource pool. They require a partner like Carolina Business Equipment, who can optimize and deliver IT solutions much quicker than its competition and let organizations focus on the business while they take care of the technology aspect.

Columbia, South Carolina-based Carolina Business Equipment has overhauled its core business of print services and now caters to a wide range of IT services. The 47 years old company has one single motto: the client should always have a positive experience. “Whether it is print services or IT services, we want to deliver an amazing interaction to the client,” says John Eckstrom, President, Carolina Business Equipment.

When it comes to client engagement, the company starts with evaluating technology on the client-side.

When a medical facility was paying a hefty price for their technology stack but still wasn’t getting the job done, they approached Carolina Business Equipment. Matt’s assessment of the client’s network found out that they had aging servers without a proper disaster recovery plan. Matt’s team collected some information and presented reports to the client that illustrated that they weren’t relatively as healthy as they were led to believe. The company delivered an overall technology solution, brought the client up to current standards and best practices, and brought some stability. Carolina Business Equipment is still working with the client to keep them secure and stable.
