Business Challenge:
With information technology being a core aspect of their FSA regulated business processing, Andrews Hammond Brady needed its IT provider to deliver to the defined support needs, and to identify and promote means of improving business processing.
The challenges included:
  • Establishing an IT architecture to meet business continuity requirements, recovering key IT systems in less than 24 hours from invocation of a recovery plan
  • Streamlining paper handling processes and providing a cost effective means of document storage.
An innovative approach to solving these issues was needed.
