The Truland Group is a third generation family-owned company. We cover the entire spectrum of anything that requires electricity, from low voltage to medium voltage. We do health care facilities and critical facilities and government facilities, infrastructure. And nationally, we are the ninth largest electrical contractor in the country.
IT drives just about everything we do in this company, back office and field. If anything in IT is not operating correctly, we're not operating at our full capability as a company. So it's critical to how we run every aspect of our business.
The biggest challenge that we faced with our previous backup solution was the inability to get a comprehensive view of our backed up data throughout the organization. We at Truland always try to achieve for improving our productivity to get a better return to our customers and into our internal users, as well. By having to spend more time on managing and administrating those back office was a challenge.
Dell's solution, AppAssure, came out to be a solution that is fluid and can adapt to the environment we put it into. If we send a DR footprint to a job site, it should be able to adapt to the requirements at that job site. If we need to have faster backups, more often backups at certain sites, we can do that. If it's in an office environment, it should be able to align itself to that office's environment. And AppAssure gave us that flexibility, and we were able to get a comprehensive view of our disaster recovery.
AppAssure has helped us a lot. In decreasing our recovery time for our data, we saved almost 30% in our storage space. We reduced administration time by almost 25 to 30 hours every week, and saved us about $120,000 every year.
Dell's a wonderful partner to work with, and they're always there to support you and to be with you and share their solutions and their experiences that you can take from and apply to your own industry.
We have partnered with Dell over many, many years and I think the partnership is the same kind of a partnership that we have with our customers, where we go about being successful together and not in isolation.
