About First Tool Corporation
First Tool Corporation was looking for a way to improve communication between their shops, some of which are out of state, and with their traveling employees. Their shops handle a wide range of jobs from designing and building special machines to injection molding, and much more. They have six different divisions and communicating between them was becoming a problem. In addition, they have service people on the road who need to check in with the shop. Beyond all of these concerns, one of their servers was going down and would cost them about $20,000 to replace. Brett Houseman, the IT Director for First Tool Corporation in Dayton, OH, realized that they had to go to the cloud.
