5 Star Testimonials; Our Clients Speak Out

Delivers exceptional service above and beyond expectations.

Tracir has benefited from the relationship with Assurance Group for several years on initiatives that are beyond the scope of our small IT department. Assurance Group consistently delivers exceptional service above and beyond expectations which has garnered our respect and trust. It is nice to work with a company that takes ownership of not only projects, but problems, and sees them through to completion and resolution. There is a peace of mind knowing each requirement will be done correctly, on time, and within budget. Other companies Tracir has used in the past, failed in these critical areas.

Service after the sale is also very important to the Tracir team. Assurance Group does not just disappear after the deployment like most other technology companies tend to do once the check clears the bank. The Assurance Group team is available to answer questions and to tweak the deployments as needed. There are routines established to maintain our cyber security investments and to review alerts so events can be collectively delved into as they occur.

Overall, Tracir is very pleased with the relationship that has been established with Assurance Group and would not hesitate to recommend them for any technology challenge your company may face or want to avoid. They make me feel good, just like earning above market rates on our cash reserves.

Bring clarity and focus to your business needs.

Having contracted Lowell for several years and many successful projects, his strong communication skills and attention to detail have allowed him to deliver our projects on time and on budget, and sometimes under budget. He has developed a strong relationship with Finance, as well as our internal IS staff, through the interaction during project work. If you need guidance on data backup and recovery, VMware clusters and/or detailed planning and budgeting, then this is the guy you want to work with to bring clarity and focus to your business needs. I without reservation recommend Lowell Bowdle and after working with you, I assure you that you will do the same.

Our only downtime is for scheduled maintenance.

We have worked closely with Lowell and Assurance Group for many years. Our network environment performs predictably within its current design. Before we started working with Assurance Group, it was common for us to have regular downtime events costing us valuable productive time. Our systems and applications were not maintained properly, which caused many different challenges it seemed at times on a daily basis. There was no plan to resolve all of the recurring problems and that impacted our productivity and bottom line. Today our only downtime is for scheduled maintenance and we have a yearly plan and budget that helps use manage cash flow while staying current and supported. The virtualized environment, security policies and data protection systems that are in place have eliminated downtime, drastically reduced our business risk, and has allowed us the flexibility to quickly make changes to support our growing business across many states. I without hesitation will recommend Assurance Group to any company who serious about using IT to reduce risk and drive KPIs in your business.

They help us fight cybercrime, protect our data, and reduce our risk.

We as well as our parent company have used Assurance Group for over 10 years. We leverage the expertise of Assurance Group to help us mitigate pervasive security risks and pain points for needs that are outside the scope of normal day to day IT operations. Our limited IT staff makes it hard to maintain the ongoing care and feeding of our computing environment, even without consideration given to the evolving threat landscape. We continue to benefit from our relationship with Assurance Group because of the quality of work they consistently perform, their responsiveness and their willingness to collaborate with us and our vendors to deliver more secure and reliable services to our customers. They always take ownership of a project or issue and see it through to resolution. The peace of mind knowing a small task or sizeable project will be handled correctly and in a timely manner is priceless in today’s business world.

If you were to ask me to summarize how they help us, I would tell you that they help us fight cybercrime, protect our data, and reduce our risk. All of which allows me to sleep better at night and enjoy more of my evenings and weekends. We highly recommend Assurance Group to anyone looking for a partnership and guidance with any IT initiative, big or small.

Responsiveness and willingness to make that extra effort.

We have had the opportunity to work with Lowell for several years, and in an age of "more with less” he has been a significant asset. Our resources are stretched thin, and Lowell’s responsiveness and willingness to make that extra effort in recommending and procuring our performance and security monitoring solutions put us ahead of schedule. These new solutions have had a significant impact in terms of both hard and soft dollars. They have given us a better view of our environment and the ability to respond quickly issues. At the same time they freed up staff time giving us the opportunity to pursue new projects without an increase staffing levels. Our performance and security monitoring solutions have had many intangible benefits too. Our customer confidence is up and our stress level is down knowing that we have a solid solution monitoring our environment 24x7. Lowell’s commitment to quality and to his customers helped make these solutions possible. We would highly recommend his services.

Helping IT make the business case to senior management.

As a court-appointed organization with ties to State government, we needed to ensure that the process of selecting a consultant organization would stand up to public scrutiny by conducting a highly ethical process. Because of the uniqueness of our business, wherein we are charged with fiduciary responsibility for private sector monies, the bottom line is critically important. Lowell understood our business constraints, while helping IT make the business case to senior management of the importance of this project. Ultimately, we opted to go with Lowell and his organization.

We were convinced the following attributes virtually guaranteed the success of our project.

The quality and thoroughness of the proposed solution;
The attention to detail;
The superior customer and technical resources;
The forthright and truthful nature by which he conducted negotiations.

Doing a total refresh on an organization's technology infrastructure takes exceptional management of the client's expectations, resources and budget. To date, the project is on target and under budget. No one could argue with those results.
