Can reliable IT and improved mobility help Longhorn Lockers move into the big leagues?

When you think of a locker, you probably think of the old, dented gray lockers you used to shove your books into back in high school. While suitable for your books and backpack, these dusty lockers don’t quite live up to the demands of today’s top athletes.

Enter Longhorn Locker. Originally started in the 80’s as a construction company by John Allen in his barn, Longhorn Lockers set-out to create high-end, custom designed sports lockers than could withstand the punishment of even the toughest athletes. Longhorn focuses on delivering the very best in quality standards. Where the competition used wood, glue and nails — Longhorn’s lockers are made with stainless steel and through-bolt construction.

Today, Longhorn Lockers is known for producing and installing high end lockers in some of our nation’s most prestigious professional and college sports venues around the country including Stanford University, Major League Soccer organizations and the San Antonio Spurs.

As business grows, IT needs change

As their business grew, Longhorn Lockers  faced limitations with their IT infrastructure. Based in rural Venus, TX the team experienced frequent issues with its on-premise email server and phone systems which frequently went down when bad weather hit.

Mobility was also a concern as staff had difficulties syncing their email between devices resulting in missed emails and duplicate messages. This quickly began to impact their ability to expand and grow.

So Longhorn Lockers approached our partner Technology & Beyond looking for an IT infrastructure solution. Technology & Beyond set them up with Intermedia Hosted Exchange and Hosted PBX.
