Finance and Insurance Agency Turns to ProviDyn to Better Understand and Improve its IT Infrastructure

Atlanta, GA -- February 1, 2012 -- ProviDyn, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today that it was recently selected by Dealer Performance Group (DPG), a finance and insurance agency providing automotive benefits services, and F&I/ compliance training to over 600 automotive dealerships in the Southeast, to evaluate and make recommendations for the agency’s network infrastructure.

Working with other managed service providers left DPG with a network built on disparate systems and support that was unreliable and slow. Frustrated with this outcome, the agency enlisted ProviDyn to conduct an in-depth evaluation of its technology needs from top to bottom and make recommendations for improvements. After a thorough assessment, ProviDyn recommended Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS) as an all-in-one network solution that would give the agency access to enterprise-class server technology at an affordable cost. In addition, ProviDyn migrated DPG to a private cloud, giving the agency the added bonus of cost effectively accessing and sharing information.

“ProviDyn was able to come in, quickly understand our business and make recommendations that would meet our immediate and long-term needs,” said Hal Schmidt, CFO of Dealer Performance Group. “The combination of Microsoft SBS and the private cloud allowed us to move past the infrastructure issues we were facing and gave us the peace of mind to focus on the business while knowing our technology needs were being handled by ProviDyn, a partner we could trust.”

“Microsoft’s SBS is an ideal solution for small businesses facing the day-to-day challenges of growing while also maintaining a reliable IT infrastructure with limited IT knowledge,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of ProviDyn. “For Dealer Performance Group specifically, SBS allowed them to gain the major components of a corporate infrastructure without the time and cost they would have spent otherwise.”
