When Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation had to swiftly put in place an IT structure and network for their company, they reached out to Solomon IT Consulting. Solomon IT quickly and efficiently provided them with the comprehensive technology and continued support they required.
Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation is a Tennessee based manufacturing and research company solely funded by the Department of Energy. As a brand new start-up, they needed to go from a vision to a full blown company within weeks and build up every resource including IT. IACMI’s Renae Speck notes “We knew we needed the basics – software, security, email.”
Speck says “We didn’t have a lot of money for personnel to choose the right person with the right skill set, so we decided pretty quickly that hiring in-house was not the best initial option for us.” Speck explains “You get somebody who just knows software, somebody who knows the hardware, somebody who updates the server. We’re in a special situation in a special building. We needed somebody very skilled.” Connecting with a local organization was also very important to IACMI.
After eliminating other options, such as placement agencies, IACMI approached Solomon IT. Solomon IT met with IACMI to discuss their services. They provided IACMI with honest communication, solutions and good pricing. Solomon IT’s amazing experience sealed the deal for them. Speck comments “We felt as though we would get the individualized attention that we wanted.”

Solomon IT gave IACMI a bid for fifteen laptops with dual monitors and docking station, servers, as well as backup and disaster recovery plan.

From the point of approval to install date, Solomon IT took a total of three weeks to order, ship, stage and install all equipment, create e-mail accounts with their domain name and place it in a secured office building. Solomon IT also set up IACMI’s Domain and Group Policy management with folder redirection. They supplied Dell hardware, Lexmark printers, and Office 365 for IACMI’s e-mail.
