“The Ansel Adams Gallery Upgrades to Konect Elite + Windows Server 2008 R2 with Ease

Calgary, AB (PRWEB) June 10, 2013

Konect software was an integral part of the solution to simplify and cut administrative costs. Migrating from our legacy system cut our annual administrative overheads by more than 75%. Konect also enabled us to use our systems remotely, which allows us to hire the optimally skilled (high, mid, low as needed) administrative employees where they are, rather than drawing from a limited pool (in terms of size and range of skills) in a remote, rural area.

THE CHALLENGE

The Ansel Adams Gallery has been in business under the same family ownership since 1902. What started as a painters studio is now a destination for photographers and aficionados of Ansel Adams worldwide.

Operating out of Yosemite National Park, CA, the client has an interesting combination of requirements: they have a complex POS system that needs to be onsite, while NPS (National Park Service) requires that administrative functions be housed outside the national park. The client also has many multi-site workers the website is administered remotely, general administration is done remotely, accounting and bookkeeping are administered remotely, and high end art sales operates remotely.

The client had a VPN connection in place, which had created several complexities: regular communications interruptions, a much slower connection to workers at remote locations due to large amounts of data being pulled across the network, and the POS and accounting software were recommended to be on same server for optimal performance, which wasnt possible with that delivery model. It soon became clear that they needed a more robust solution that was able to handle all of these requirements, and yet still be simple to use and manage.

THE SOLUTION

Back in April 2008, The Ansel Adams Gallery purchased Konect Elite when migrating from UNIX
