Williams & Fudge Taps EMC to Help Transform Its IT Infrastructure

Nov 16, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- EMC Corp. announced that Williams & Fudge, an accounts receivable management firm serving 1,200 colleges, universities and financial institutions, selected EMC VNX unified storage and EMC RecoverPoint to transform its business operations and accelerate server and desktop virtualization.


According to a release, Williams & Fudge's business was expanding as demand increased for assistance with collecting receivables on college loans and other debt from higher-education and financial institutions. The firm's previous physical IT infrastructure lacked sufficient scalability to handle the company's growth. It also required significant management resources, which was a drain on Williams & Fudge's lean IT staff.

With the help of EMC Premier Velocity Solution Provider eGroup, Williams & Fudge selected EMC VNX unified storage to transform its business. VNX has enabled the firm to deliver new IT services, such as the launch of a new business unit, to its internal clients. VNX provides Williams & Fudge with a FLASH 1st automated tiering strategy that leverages the EMC Fast Suite, along with Flash and high-capacity disk drives. VNX supports Williams & Fudge's Microsoft SharePoint, SQL Server, VMware Zimbra email and custom-built Linux applications.

Phillip Reynolds, Data Center Director, Williams & Fudge, said, "Our company has more than doubled in size to 360 employees while our lean IT staff of three employees has remained the same—something that wouldn't have been possible without EMC and VMware technology. As our company continues to grow—even two- or three-fold—we're very comfortable that EMC and VMware technology will enable our data center to scale with the business." EMC Corp. helps businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver IT as a service.
