Continuum Releases Case Study, “Continuum Helps Sophicity Put the IT in City”

BOSTON – June 25, 2015 – Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, announced that its MSP partner, Sophicity, provider of the highest quality IT products and services to city government throughout the Southeast, supports approximately 80 percent of its clients with Continuum’s white-label Help Desk. As Sophicity added clients, the company found it difficult to sustain a growing technical staff – specifically, the cost of onboarding new entry-level hires. As a trial, Sophicity brought five clients onto Continuum’s Help Desk, to deliver frontline, client-facing IT troubleshooting and desktop support services, previously maintained in-house.

“We realized that the investment we had to make to hire new level 1 technicians was simply too much,” said Nathan Eisner, Chief Operations Officer at Sophicity. “We decided to give Continuum’s Help Desk a try. It’s been fantastic, completely changing the way we do business. The Help Desk immediately improved our response times, and the customers knew they could call in and get a live person on the phone right away. That completely changed the clients’ perception of us – a night and day difference. And, it’s completely changed our model because we’re now able to focus on upper-level engineers and bigger, more in-depth projects.”

Continuum’s Help Desk is staffed with more than 100 U.S.-based technicians who provide level 1-2 support to more than 35,000 end users via phone, email and Web-based chat. Additionally, Sophicity utilizes Continuum’s intelligent Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform which offers proactive problem resolution backed by the company’s industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC) with nearly 600 technicians, resolving thousands of alerts, 24x7x365.

With many of Sophicity’s clients behind on technology and needing to modernize, the company leverages Continuum to free up its engineers to devote more time to consulting and related appointments. Sophicity utilizes Continuum’s Network Assessment Tool, a solution powered by RapidFire Tools, to scan entire IT environments, capturing device and network information, and identifying potential risks and security threats. They then generate a series of reports that can be custom-branded and shared with Sophicity’s clients.
