Remote Work Is Seamless and Secure for Leading Environmental Consulting Firm

About Environmental Partners

Environmental Partners is an award-winning multidisciplinary engineering and consulting firm that has been dedicated to service excellence through close partnerships with their clients for over 24 years. The firm is headquartered in Quincy, Massachusetts with regional offices in Woburn, MA serving the North Shore and Southern New Hampshire, Hyannis, MA Serving Cape Cod and the Islands, and Middletown, Connecticut serving Connecticut and Western Massachusetts with approximately 80 employees.

Ryan Trahan is the Chief Operating Officer of Environmental Partners and has been with the firm for ten years. He has worked with Logically (formerly PCR) since joining Environmental Partners.

IT Challenge

Logically is responsible for the management and upkeep of Environmental Partner’s servers and network systems, with a dedicated main server at the Quincy office and separate servers stationed at each of their three locations. Regular security checks and updates are performed, including the creation of backups for the main server. Most of Environmental Partners employees already had dedicated work laptops, so when the time came to go completely remote due to the pandemic, it was a “seamless transition,” according to Mr. Trahan. The firm only needed to buy extra VPN licenses to support the full extent of their staff working from home.

Logically was also instrumental in helping Mr. Trahan hire an in-person IT specialist who currently assists with day-to-day operations. “They went so far as to be present during the interview process and told us exactly what we should be looking for when hiring someone. It was incredibly helpful.”
