Revitalizing Business Continuity for Kleshinski, Morrison & Morris, LLP through EasyIT’s Robust and Secure Co-Managed IT Services
Kleshinski, Morrison & Morris, LLP (KMM), a distinguished Certified Public Accountants (CPA) firm in Mansfield and Columbus, OH, has been a paragon of excellence in the financial services sector since 1963. They boast a strong team of eight certified public accountants, all members of respected organizations such as the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants. Despite its strong internal IT department, KM&M faced persistent technological challenges that began to disrupt its operations.
After a few false starts with other Managed Service Providers (MSPs), KM&M was wrestling with persistent issues with their former MSP. The situation escalated when an essential email domain was unexpectedly deactivated, which could have caused severe disruption to their business communication during a critical period leading up to the tax deadline if EasyIT had not jumped in immediately to resolve the issue.
The Secure and Swift Solution by EasyIT: Co-Managed IT Services
In response to KM&M’s urgent issues, Matt Boehm, IT Manager at KM&M, turned to EasyIT. Christopher, a vital member of the EasyIT team, responded swiftly. As a partner in the “EasyIT & Me” Co-Managed IT Services designed to provide an efficient, secure, and swift solution, Christopher knew exactly what to do:
- Expedited migration of KM&M’s email service to Microsoft’s O365 platform, assuring enhanced email protection and routing.
