About Envista Forensics

The recovery from natural disasters has grown more complex and in response Envista Forensics has associates located around the globe to provide assurance and comprehensive services no matter the type of loss or location of the disaster. Envista is a global, multi-disciplinary, and highly-skilled forensic engineering partner trusted by insurance claims and consultants. With over 300 professionals located in 30 offices on 4 continents, the Envista teams are industry leaders committed to providing the best possible service, vast experience, thought leadership, and certainty in an uncertain world.

The Challenges

Managing large amounts of data and guaranteeing privacy was a constant challenge for Envista’s technology team; the team was spending 20 plus hours a week maintaining their Commvault environment. Envista risked dangerous security vulnerabilities and significant downtime, which affected key business applications and productivity. Most importantly, they were no longer able to stay true to their mission of delivering certainty when their clients need it the most.

How Meridian Helped

Envista selected Meridian IT for a collaborative and proactive approach to managing IT as a strategic platform. Meridian IT equipped Envista with Brilliant Humans as a Service to understand their IT environment and provide expert advice on solutions designed specifically with their business in mind. Meridian IT’s SleepWell 24/7 Monitoring and Management helped effectively diagnose backup issues and stabilize their IT environment.

Additionally, Meridian’s team helped Envista optimize and right-size their IT footprint through a process called Maintenance, Asset, and Contract Optimization (MACO). Meridian extracted operational cost by analyzing Envista’s maintenance contracts line by line to determine and eliminate coverage on products that were no longer in use. Meridian consolidated products and coverage into a single, longer term contract which allowed Envista to save a significant amount money.

Business Impacts

Meridian IT’s hands-on approach has reduced Envista’s Commvault maintenance time by 90% and greatly improved confidence against the threat of catastrophic events. Time spent maintaining backups have been reduced from 20 hours a week to 2 hours a week, and scheduled down time has been virtually eliminated. Meridian enabled a cost-effective business continuity strategy so Envista now has a scalable and reliable solution to execute for the future. With significant resources uncovered from MACO, Envista Forensics has been able to reinvest the capital to fund innovation projects such as their drone program to take footage of disaster areas to help their clients understand the extent of the damage.
