Active Innovations Case Study: Global Firm Conducts Business In Multiple Locations with Remote Access
Challenge: Geographically dispersed staff required secure remote access to the network using available connectivity from work sites and other locations around the world.
Strategy: Seek an IT consulting services company that could provide planning, implementation, ongoing network management and technical support for a reasonable fee. Develop a wide area network backed by outstanding customer service.
Solution: Active Innovations won the contract hands down.

This allowed for remote network access enabling the firm’s staff to access email, files and applications using any available Internet connection.
