For more than 75 years, Aldon Management has been redeveloping and managing multi-family residential apartment properties throughout the Bethesda, Maryland metroplex and expanding nationwide. Known for its passion in creating affordable apartment rentals with ample amenities and caring property management, Aldon Management was experiencing rapid growth and needed a trusted managed IT services partner to manage the complexity of its IT operations across dozens of properties.
“Instead of investing in building our own data center or hiring IT staff at each location, we were looking for a single provider who could do it all … migrate all property IT environments onto an agile, easy-to-scale platform and centrally manage network performance and security,” said Joe Carney, Aldon Management VP of Business Support and Technology. “Taking the day-to-day IT responsibility off our hands would allow me to focus on IT strategy and our talented staff on property management and business development”.
Aldon Management’s technology advisor, OmniLegion Technologies, worked with the Aldon Management property management team to fully vet out their needs and identified Magna5 as the ideal partner going forward. “We always know that we can trust Magna5 to deliver optimal results for our customers,” said EJ Bowen, CEO of OmniLegion Technologies. “They bring a highly skilled, enterprise-grade team of IT team experts to the table and can deliver a fully managed platform at an affordable price.”
To ensure reliable uptime and high network performance, Magna5 delivered a fully managed cloud network solution providing proactive centralized management and response.
“As we secure new properties, the repeatable IT builds allow us to scale quickly with a predictable monthly fee that helps us budget IT spend and drive down costs,” said Joe. “And during the Covid 19 pandemic, the Magna5 solution provided us with anywhere, anytime network and real-time office functionality from any device.”
Around-the-Clock Access to Technical Support
In the property management business, downtime can significantly disrupt business operations and revenue.
“With our systems now fully managed in a cloud environment, Magna5 knows before we do if something is down. Problems are typically fixed before any disruption occurs,” said Joe. “When we contact them with a specific technical challenge, it is not unusual they will have a solution in place within a week.”
With no IT teams at each property location, the company was seeking centralized management and easy-to-scale solutions that would enable them to expand new properties and empower employees to communicate and collaborate more effectively.
