The Search for a New Solution

Walsh McKean Furcolo LLP encountered critical issues with data storage and security. The firm was running out of space for its growing data needs, and their backups were due for renewal. Additionally, the existing system’s security measures were inadequate for their needs. Faced with these challenges, Laura Oakes, Office Administrator, began a search for a more reliable and secure managed services provider (MSP). 

Choosing Afinety

Laura first learned about Afinety through the San Diego Association of Legal Administrators (ALA). Afinety was highly recommended by several peers. Afinety’s reputation for excellent customer service and legal industry expertise made them stand out amongst their competitors. The endorsement from the ALA, coupled with positive reference calls and an impressive presentation by Afinety’s team, influenced the firm’s decision to switch providers.

A Successful Implementation and Transition

The implementation process was meticulously organized and executed. Laura praised the team’s detailed approach and systematic planning, which ensured a smooth transition. Regular meetings and comprehensive lists of tasks facilitated the process, minimizing disruptions. Despite initial concerns, the transition was seamless, with minimal issues reported by users.
