About Our Customer:

Nestled in the heart of California’s picturesque wine country, this winery has dedicated themselves to the art of organic winemaking and environmental preservation. For over 20 years, they have unwaveringly pursued energy efficiency, water and forest conservation, and the cultivation of diverse grape varietals to craft exceptional wines. It is no surprise that their presence has flourished across 3 distinct locations. However, with growth comes growing pains which included problems with their Apple device management. Follow along as we delve into the intricacies of these challenges and, most importantly, explore the effective solutions that addressed them.

Innovative Solutions

Office1 managed the winery’s copier fleet for years and during that time, they relied on a local IT company to maintain other technology operations.  However, as the winery's operations expanded, so did the challenges. They began encountering persistent IT issues, particularly with the functionality of their Apple devices. Service disruptions became a common frustration, with ticket response times stretching up to two days, and even then, resolutions were rare. Slow support meant precious hours were diverted from productive tasks as employees grappled with device malfunctions. With plans to integrate more Apple products to support their growing operations, the winery recognized the urgency to address their inadequate IT infrastructure.
