The Company

Berger Hargis Landscape Management serves commercial and residential customers in the Indianapolis metropolitan area with lawn care, landscaping, maintenance for aquatics, trees and shrubs, and related services. To aid its service commitment, Berger Hargis needed a stable and efficient technology setup for its small office and mobile solutions for its dozens of employees and seasonal staff working all over Central Indiana. One employee served as the lone technology specialist and was pulled in too many directions.

The Objective

Having grown as a small business since its inception in 1994, Berger Hargis needed updates and upgrades to its technology environment to align with its growing office staff and work crews. The goal was to build an environment that would provide consistency for employees and complimented its quality service reputation. An improved system would allow Berger Hargis staff to be more productive and reduce the frequency and occurrence of technological
issues. Van Ausdall could provide expertise in all areas of IT, offering Berger Hargis access to a specialized expert for help regardless of the issue.
