Feedback summary: 

TechMD’s efforts have helped further the construction process of new campuses and maintain the overall health of network systems. They have proven to be a reliable IT partner, setting themselves apart from other vendors with their organization and willingness to accept responsibility.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the executive director of operations and CFO at a large church in Southern California.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

For several years, we outsourced our network management. Our church has been growing quite a bit, so we felt that we needed to engage a firm that was a little larger and had more capabilities than the one we were previously dealing with. We’ve relied on TechMD for IT infrastructure management and support.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TechMD was helpful right away by identifying our network’s strengths and weaknesses. They found that the slowdowns in our internet processing were largely due to how much we stream to other sites, a process that uses a lot of bandwidth. We relied on TechMD to alleviate the issues stemming from that arrangement. Also, we just started two new campuses of our church elsewhere in the region, and TechMD has helped with all of the IT installations at both of those campuses.

What is the team composition?

We have one overall point of contact at TechMD, but we also work with a designated project manager who spearheads each of our individual initiatives.

How did you come to work with TechMD?

They initially contacted us and marketed themselves to us.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent approximately $5,000–$6,000 a month.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in July 2018 and remains ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Specifically related to the new campus developments, we had problems with our previous firm about being responsible for the IT portion of the construction process. We've had no such complications with TechMD. When they joined our project, they served as the point person for all of the IT installations. They functioned like any other subcontractor on a construction project, which helped to further our progress.

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been communicative for the entirety of our engagement. TechMD regularly follows-up with us and provides us with the necessary documentation.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are more cost-effective than other firms we have worked with. Also, when we encounter a problem, TechMD can remotely monitor and identify what’s working and what’s not so that they can determine what equipment needs to be replaced or upgraded.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we’ve worked very well together.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Treat TechMD as part of your team.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the executive director at Safe Refuge, a drug and alcohol treatment facility in California.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

We were lacking the internal capacity to manage all of our IT issues, so we engaged TechMD for IT management and consulting. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TechMD provides IT assistance on both small day-to-day issues (i.e., helping staff log into their devices) and larger projects (i.e., migrating systems to the cloud). We submit tickets to their team as needed and, in addition to addressing issues, they also provide recommendations for technologies to help us set up different processes. 

What is the team composition? 

I have one main point of contact for larger projects, but work with others on their team as needed through the ticketing system on more of a regular basis. 

How did you come to work with TechMD?

We found them online and liked how helpful, attentive, and responsive they were compared to other agencies we were considering. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spend at least $3,000 a year on their services, depending on what types of projects come up.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working with them since November 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

TechMD's IT assistance has had a hugely positive impact on our company, streamlining internal processes and saving our team time by resolving any issues as they come up relatively quickly. We're a lot more confident in our IT systems thanks to their contributions. 

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

They're very responsive, working on any tickets we submit right away. There was a point in time where they seemed to have some turnover within their company, and their responsiveness slowed down, but they've resolved those issues since. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

TechMD seems to genuinely care about the success of our business; they want to make sure we're running as efficiently as possible. They proactively reach out to us each week to make sure they're meeting our expectations and aren't missing anything. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

There was a time I wanted them to be more customer service oriented, but they've already addressed any issues we had.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO of J.Derek Lewis and Associates, an investment advisory firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techmd?

We engaged Techmd to take over our IT, networking, and technology infrastructure needs. Rather than trying to resolve issues on our own or pay a vendor by the hour, we wanted to work with a company with a more streamlined process and pricing structure.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Techmd provides IT support on an ongoing basis through an online ticketing system, from installing new computers to recovering lost documents and setting up networks. Their first project involved a full server conversion and upgrade. They also provide CIO consulting services, reviewing and recommending changes we can make on a semi-annual basis.

What is the team composition?

We're assigned to a specific team, which includes a few technicians and a CIO consultant. We also have access to an after hours team as needed.

How did you come to work with Techmd?

They reached out to us, and we were attracted to the model they offered. We also knew some of the people on their team, so we felt comfortable working with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend about $2,000–$3,000 per month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We've been working with them since October 2016 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Techmd's services save me a lot of time and money previously wasted on trying to resolve IT issues internally. Their ticketing system is easy to use and their team is great to work with; we have unlimited access to their support, and they don't seem to mind how frequently we use their services.

How did Techmd perform from a project management standpoint?

They're great; they send out monthly reports to us and reach out regularly. It continues to be a very good working relationship overall.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their technicians are approachable and professional. Unlike other technicians we've worked with in the past, Techmd's staff is easy to deal with and talk to whenever they visit the office or speak to us over the phone.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I have no complaints.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend trying their service out, even if it's just temporary, to experience the value of working with a team that understands the business needs and can more quickly address any technical issues than relying solely on internal teams.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a nonprofit organization. I am the CFO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

We outsource our IT needs to them.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They take care of all our IT needs, including security, new equipment purchase, hardware and software troubleshooting, etc. We’ve also done two large migration projects with them. They transferred our email server to Outlook 365 and moved our network files to the cloud. They’re in the process of cleaning everything off our servers and moving them to cloud-based services. They also provide CIO consulting services.

What is the team composition?

They divide their full staff into teams and we’re assigned a team. We do have a principal point of contact for some of our needs.

How did you come to work with TechMD?

We used a company called StoneHill previously. They were acquired by TechMD, so we transferred to them after that merger.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend about $30,000 a year on their services. About $24,000 of that is monthly fees and the rest is for special projects.

What is the status of this engagement?

They came to us out of StoneHill around August 2016. Our collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve had very few problems since we started working with them. We feel protected from viral attacks and we appreciate their service. They handled both our big migration projects very well and we’re about 90% finished with our server transfer to the cloud. We have easy access to our email and network files and are very pleased with their work.

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

They have a variety of ways to interact with them. We can fill out a ticket through the ticketing system or call their helpline. They generally get back to us fairly quickly and are very friendly. They don’t fulfill the standard IT stereotype of being difficult to talk to. They’re very communicative and are very cheerful in our interactions. We haven’t had any complaints, and no one on our team has any hesitation about contacting them if we have a tech problem.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re very proactive and thorough and I appreciate their attitude. They’re always eager to solve problems right away and never put us off.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would be helpful to have one point person for a problem. We often end up speaking to more people than really necessary to resolve issues. It would be simpler to have one person per problem. They do have a good team with a lot of specialists, but an account manager would simplify the process.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CFO for Newport Pacific Capital Company, a property management business. Our specialty is in multifamily properties, such as mobile home parks, RV parks, and apartments. I handle all the internal operations, including technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

We were with a small IT company that wasn’t able to grow with us, so we began looking for another partner. We have clients all across the U.S. that needed efficient IT support.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TechMD takes care of all our IT services, from our server room in the corporate office to all the remote locations across the country. They keep all the computers operational, safe, and free of viruses. If we have an emergency with the server, they keep us running and help with the global backups. TechMD makes sure our IT infrastructure supports our business and lets us do our jobs effectively.

When we first started, TechMD had us update a lot of our IT systems, which helped us get current. That’s allowed us to stay on top of the technology and remain secure and functional throughout the years.

What is the team composition?

We have one team assigned to our account. I work with several of the members, although the team is somewhat interchangeable.

How did you come to work with TechMD?

I interviewed several different companies that all had a fixed fee model, which is what we wanted. TechMD seemed to be the best fit, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $500,000–$1 million.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since August 2012.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

TechMD has reduced the number of viruses and intrusions we’ve had on our computers. They’ve helped us stay cleaner and run better.

We add and remove properties consistently, but TechMD keeps good notes that streamline our process and keep everything operating properly.

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

We meet on a monthly basis to review our IT infrastructure and discuss any suggested changes. The team is communicative and excellent at solving problems—I rarely have to speak with their supervisor. I have a customer relations contact I can talk to, and the owners also make themselves available when needed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

TechMD is incredibly patient. We have a lot of older employees out in the field who can have a hard time grasping some of the newer technology. However, TechMD does an amazing job working with them over the phone.

I appreciate their fixed fee model because it allows us to easily charge rates back to our properties. It gives us unlimited support and we know exactly what the cost will be; plus, our properties are getting the best care they’ve ever received. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. If there are any problems, I take them straight to my point of contact. TechMD is great at listening to and implementing those changes. They’re a good partner to have.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the director of finance and HR for The Council on Aging Orange County, a nonprofit organization that provides advisory services to local seniors.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

We needed IT support. We operate about 80 different computers, a server that hosts our secured files, and a phone and internet system. We needed people with the skills to handle all that and any tech support our staff required.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TechMD reviews our systems and tech needs annually, letting us know about potential issues in the future. That gives us time to look at our budget and plan for new equipment and/or software solutions. They keep our server in tune, add and delete users, and establish user access to our files so that people only see what they need to.

TechMD also assists our staff of about 50 people—they answer questions, fix bugs, and provide tech solutions. When we moved offices a few years ago, they switched our whole system over the weekend without any interruptions.

What is the team composition?

We have a designated team, but who we interact with depends on the type of issue.

How did you come to work with TechMD?

They were hired before I began working here.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend about $4,800 a month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with TechMD since April 2008.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

TechMD does such a great job of evaluating and monitoring our systems that we’ve never had a serious issue since I’ve worked here. We’ve never had to stop working because of a tech problem.

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

They manage everything so that we never lose any productivity time. We can get in touch with them via phone, email, or a portal on our desktops. I can get immediate help over the phone, and the portal takes six hours or less.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They handle everything seamlessly; we’ve never had any crucial tech problems. They proactively analyze our system and anticipate any repairs or changes that need to be made.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I'm very satisfied with their services. Their pricing is a little too high, since we're a non-profit, but we’re hesitant to switch because they’re so good.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the administrative director at For the Child, a 40-year-old nonprofit that helps low-income families with trauma prevention, child abuse, and exposure to violence. My role focuses on technology, data systems, infrastructure, and information systems security.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

I used to be the sole technology point person, but my experience was minimal and misaligned to our needs. We hired TechMD to provide IT infrastructure support.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We use TechMD on daily basis for all IT questions and issues. They monitor our servers, patches, and security systems. The team also made our two-sided website accessible across locations; therapists and staff can log in from either office.

The team provides onsite and remote desk support. They keep us informed about email blasts, potential phishing threats, and other viruses. Currently, we’re considering a migration to cloud-based technology.

What is the team composition?

We have a team lead, director of accounts, and a group of technical support analysts. The director of accounts oversees business continuity, basic improvements, and our agency technology issues. I interact with every team member as needed.

How did you come to work with TechMD?

About 10 years ago, another nonprofit recommended them when we were having technical support issues. We reached out and were impressed by their positive attitude. Their experience working with nonprofits made them sensitive to dealing with children, families, and HIPAA compliance. As a result, TechMD appreciated the need to prevent hacking, viruses, or anything else that would jeopardize our clients’ confidentiality. We valued this familiarity and decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

I don’t know the exact figures.

What is the status of this engagement?

We had our first conversations in November 2010. Work started in December 2010 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The partnership is a mutual investment. They care about enhancing our productivity and we’re committed to this long-term relationship. The analysts are awesome; it’s a pleasure talking with them.

TechMD goes above and beyond to ensure that our systems are always functional. In the last eight years, we’ve gone from nothing to an amazingly reliable IT infrastructure. They’ve resolved an impressive amount of issues. Our systems have crashed only once, but that was due to a power outage, not their work.

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

They have a ticket system that works via phone and online. The team can then resolve those items remotely on a chat system that connects into our computers. They’re responsive across multiple platforms; no one on my team has complained about long wait times.

The team lead does a great job processing requests via email. He’ll either convert them into tickets or resolve the issue himself. We have an annual standing meeting with him to review our systems.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re cutting-edge in addition to being wonderful people. We have a personable relationship, which is hard to find with IT vendors.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There isn’t anything specific because their performance is universally consistent. They’re expanding, and I wish them luck with their growth. Hopefully, we don’t become too small for them.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CFO for CASA of Los Angeles. We’re a nonprofit social-service organization that works with foster youth.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechMD?

We didn’t have the funding or staffing large enough to justify an internal IT department, so we outsourced it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Functioning as our entire IT department, TechMD monitors everything and addresses employee-submitted support tickets in real-time. I reach out to them regarding hardware or software purchases and they provide informed counsel.

What is the team composition?

We have a dedicated team assigned to our account, but I don’t have a specific contact or know how many people are on that team.

How did you come to work with TechMD?

I wasn’t with the company when they hired TechMD, so I don’t know what that process entailed.

How much have you invested with them?

We have about 40 employees and TechMD charges around $100 per person each month.

What is the status of this engagement?

They started working with us in June 2011 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I don’t have much to compare TechMD with, but things generally work. Occasionally, issues will arise that take more than one intervention to fix. But for the most part, they maintain things and likely prevent downtime.

How did TechMD perform from a project management standpoint?

I’m almost entirely satisfied with their performance from a communication perspective. They send monthly reports outlining our troubleshooting requests and their response times. Every six months we meet and go over potential long-term process improvements.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Everyone we come into contact with is really pleasant, seems to have a great attitude, and are focused on making sure we're satisfied.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have any general suggestions. I speak to them directly if I want specific changes made.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

IT support is immediate and reliable at any time of the day. The team works independently using clear and responsive communication, which increase the project’s efficiency. Customers can expect project management to coordinate resources effectively and provide regular updates.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a managing partner at a family-owned company with multiple holdings. We own three waste companies and are active in real estate and financial investments. There are between 100–200 employees in California and Hawaii.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Techmd?

Originally, Techmd maintained our enterprise server, which ran our accounting and company software. But we eventually needed to centralize our customer databases and routing and truck software.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Merging the waste company databases would create four operations running simultaneously off one server located in our main corporate office. To consolidate operations, Techmd coordinated with a third-party proprietary software provider in the waste industry. Additionally, they centralized our real estate and accounting software in our main office server. The company also provides helpdesk support for our corporate and satellite offices.

What is the team composition?

The account manager is a main point of contact between us, Techmd, and the other IT companies that service the other offices. Everything gets funneled through him and our corporate office.

How did you come to work with Techmd?

Our previous provider merged with them. Since we review our IT budget every couple years, we decided to interview them and other companies. Techmd pitched their services and we compared their proposal to others. In addition to the proposal, we stayed with them because there was continuity with the resources they acquired.

How much have you invested with them?

We have a contract with monthly payments and pay extra for additional projects. In total, we’ve spent between $50,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work started in August 2016 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Techmd provides great support in real time. I can call our account representative with a problem and they’ll dispatch immediately. They excel at following through in a communicative manner. We’ve had a number of bugs working with third party software, but the team has always been available to resolve issues.

Our main priority is making sure that we don’t have downtime, are up-to-date on everything, and don’t have to think about the process. Fortunately, I don’t have to micromanage them; they work independently while keeping us updated during the process.

How did Techmd perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very responsive on email, which is my preferred communication method. The team explains their work in advance, which helps us understand it better.

The afterhours helpline accommodates the time difference between our Hawaii and California offices and the East Coast software company; I get called back right away. For example, I once called from Europe in the middle of the night with a password reset issue and they resolved it immediately.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Techmd performs much better than other companies I’ve engaged. They do the job right the first time and keep us informed throughout the process. The team communicates clearly and in accessible manner for non-experts. They also don’t try to oversell services; they listen to us and deliver exactly what we want.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They switched customer service models about six months ago, from clients having one main IT support contact to a team approach. I don’t want to explain a major issue to every new person involved on our account. But the account manager seems to be doing a great job keeping everyone informed.
