IT Hero in Action: Single-handedly Enabling Work from Home

SysAdmin-Day-2020

Nominee: Alexander A.
Company: Community Corporation of Santa Monica
Industry: Non-profit, Housing
Country: USA

What impact has your nominee demonstrated professionally and in the community to support this candidacy?

Alexander single-handedly prepared the company for remote work back in March when we were never set up for it. Gathered 35+ laptops from remote community rooms that were originally used for tutoring. He imaged and updated all laptops for remote work, and handed out to all employees staggered in a week.

The entire company now can work remotely, using VPN, and has remained just as productive pre-pandemic. In the meanwhile purchasing a company-wide emergency notification system for use in future emergencies for contacting/keeping in the loop employees.

How has Lansweeper helped in making that impact?

Lansweeper made it effortless to inventory and see all specs/software/ info on any given tech item in the company. Lansweeper makes it almost too easy. The help desk also helps me stay sane, by tackling one issue at a time! No matter how big or small.

What has been your biggest challenge so far in 2020?

Preparing the entire company for remote work in 1 week, when we didn't even use laptops before.
