United Metro, a family owned, full service Real Estate Company, specializes in the sales, leasing and management of residential properties as well as offers owners a full range of property management, marketing and maintenance services.
They reached out to VyonCloud to find a solution to their server problems and concerns.
“Prior to the cloud, we were using an in-house server and hosted our own email exchange server”, said Justin Reiss, Vice President & Associate Broker. “On average, it seemed like every quarter we experienced issues where our server shut down or froze up.”
These issues cost United Metro thousands of dollars in down time. In fact, according to a survey by CA Technologies, small enterprises lost, on average, more than $55,000 in revenue due to IT failures each year, while midsize companies lost more than $91,000.
This issue combined with a need to replace an aging server led United Metro to look at alternative options. “It seemed like moving to a cloud based system was the next logical step which would cost us less in the long run,” said Reiss.
“Our overall expenses have certainly reduced since migration with VyonCloud,” said President & Designated Broker, Kenneth Reiss. “We can actually budget this part of our company’s expense whereas with our previous servers, we had no idea how much we were going to spend annually.”
United Metro is also enjoying the benefits of a mobile office, resulting in improved internal collaboration, enhanced staff engagement, reduced costs and increased revenues.
According to Kenneth Reiss, “The technical service of VyonCloud was very professional and cooperative. They set everything up for us and answered questions promptly. It was a smooth experiance from start to finish.”
