Case Study IMAC & Expansion

Nationwide Expansion and IT

When a company opens an office in a new, faraway location, it comes with some serious requirements for the IT department. In the conventional model, the company would have to purchase more servers and they would need to hire additional IT staff in order to manage the new servers and users. This is a sizeable consideration to factor in when considering expansion, both in time and money. For companies just getting into this stage, it can be a such a significant deterrent so as to prevent the opening of a new office. Thankfully, the cloud-based model doesn’t require any servers or domain controllers and the time it takes to set up is minimal in comparison.

Below, you will find a case study in nationwide expansion using the cloud-based IT model.

The IMAC Story: Cloud-Forward Expansion

JumpCloud IMAC Case Study

IMAC Regeneration Center used to be a small, local clinic, focused on providing top of the line care for their patients. But with continued success and increased demand for their services, they started to consider expanding to additional locations. IMAC had been using Active Directory® for a while, but they recognized that when you were looking at adding a second location, buying all of the on-prem hardware, hiring staff, and securing the network via VPN… it just wasn’t practical.

This caused them to look for an IT solution that could be integrated through the cloud and centrally controlled. It would have to be appropriately priced and easy to sync with their existing AD instance and Google Apps (now G Suite) accounts.

Directory-as-a-Service IMAC

IMAC was able to solve all of their needs by signing up for JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service®.

“Once we realized how easy it was to set up, to manage, to reset passwords for an end user, to do the different tasks that IT people deal with on a daily basis… the decision was clear.”

IMAC committed to JumpCloud, transitioning the first of their expansion offices to DaaS instead of AD. You can read more about the switch to Directory-as-a-Service in the case study by clicking on the image above.

IMAC found the directory they needed for their expansion, and they were able to easily set up and run JumpCloud at their new clinic.

“Literally, if you know how to install a program on a computer, then you can be up and running with JumpCloud in five minutes. It’s that simple.”

How Can JumpCloud Help You?

IT infrastructure shouldn’t be a limiting factor when your business is thinking about expanding. JumpCloud’s Directory-as-a-Service is built to be scalable and cloud optimized, with the capability to manage your systems (Windows, Mac, and Linux), cloud and on-prem servers (AWS, Google Cloud, etc.), web and on-prem applications (LDAP, SAML), and wired or WiFi networks via RADIUS. This means that all of your platforms, protocols, providers, and locations can be managed from one unified cloud directory. Plus, Directory-as-a-Service can be leveraged as a provider of cloud LDAP, RADIUS-as-a-Service, MFA, user management, and more.

With the constant expansion and need for cloud capabilities in the office, your directory should be able to fit into that environment too. You can try out our unified cloud directory for yourself – your first 10 users are free forever.
