Staying ahead of the curve, Jay Auto Group in January 2020 looked to its IT outsource provider, Knowtion, to prepare them for remote access for their nearly 400 employees across 6 locations. Many of the employees had access to their PCs at work using LogMeIn Central and now it was time to create a more “in-office” remote experience. The goal was to have employees with laptops connect to the network and have their experience identical to when they connected to the office network.
Knowtion leveraged the infrastructure already put in place at their 6 locations in Akron and Bedford, OH. Utilizing features of their Dell Sonicwall firewalls, Knowtion was able to:
- Create secure logins via the Sonicwall Global VPN client for all personnel that needed remote access
- Effectively use VPN licensing to limit the cost outlay
- Create and distribute Quick Reference Guides for employees to download and use the toolset
Jay leadership and remote employees were able to work from their PCs from any location with internet – as if they were sitting at their own desks. This solution became even more important during the COVID-19 outbreak as more companies moved workers to home locations.
