Rainwater, Holt and Sexton
Rainwater Holt & Sexton (RH&S) is one the preeminent personal injury law firms in Arkansas and has 4 offices located across the state. According to Rick Gunther, Chief Financial Officer “Our firm was growing aggressively and had outgrown our former IT partner. We were in a break/fix mode and it seemed that when we had problems, there was a lot of guesswork.
We were used to being overwhelmed with techno-speak, and it seemed like we were constantly being asked to throw money at a problem with the hope of arriving at a fix.
We wanted to move our technology from this break/fix scenario into a proactive element of our business planning. With Mainstream Technologies’ help, we’ve accomplished this goal. They took the time to understand our business and are very responsive when the unpredictable happens. They know their role in keeping our business up and running.”
Since Mainstream was brought on board, RH&S has continued to grow. Over the last two years, they’ve opened their 4th office and relocated the Little Rock office. RH&S has doubled the number of employees and their data has grown by a factor of 5. Thru the miracle of virtualization they now are running 7 servers (up from 2) on basically the same hardware footprint that was in place when Mainstream first got on the job.
“Mainstream Technologies is our technology partner. We have an ongoing dialogue and are in constant communication with them. They give us researched options which are clear, nontechnical and are always focused on our budget.”
