[prMac.com] Montreal, Quebec - Mac a Montreal, a highly rated member of the Apple Consultants Network migrates Summit MGT, a full service construction company from PC to Mac in a single day in order to provide a more stable, more efficient work environment. Fully powered by Mac OS X Lion, Summit MGT now benefits from the very tools successful businesses have come to rely on in order to gain a considerable edge in productivity and competitiveness.
Summit MGT is a full service construction company specializing in both the commercial and residential sectors of the market. Managed by Les Samuels and having successfully completed hundreds of projects over the past two decades, Summit MGT has earned a reputation for quality, reliability and integrity.
The constant pursuit of excellence is a given and to remain competitive in today's world, Les Samuels set out to focus on the very tools that every successful business relies on - the tech network.
"We've traditionally been 100% PC and Windows based for everything and of course, we have not been that happy with the results" explains Samuels, "but that's just been the evolution of having grown up with it. We had Macs early on but it was very hard to break away from Windows in the office environment and integrate Macs into our business."
"That being said though" says Samuels, "I've always enjoyed being an Apple person for home functions like iTunes and AppleTV. I just didn't see an intelligent way to marry the two and take that step and do it for my business - that is until I heard about Mac a Montreal".
"The engineer I spoke with at Mac a Montreal explained that it was in fact much less daunting that I had ever imagined because of all the advances in Mac OS X and the world of virtualization. With any Mac today, you can continue to use your Windows-only apps (if you need to) and then jump on to the wonderful world of Mac OS X for everything else."
"The transition was surprisingly seamless - very surprising. I honestly found it too good to be true" explains Samuels. "Because in my own experience, whenever you try to do any type of computer transitions, there is a lot of growing pains and suffering."
"Mac a Montreal assured me by phone a couple of times that it wouldn't be the case but I insisted we have a face to face meeting because I still didn't believe that it was possible to transition away from what I describe as at least 15 years of inefficiency working in a buggy Windows environment to actually taking the leap into what I hoped would be a clean Mac operating world." stresses Les.
"I honestly did not think that it would be actually possible to do it that quickly. But in fact, true to their word we did the whole upgrade in less than a day - on a Saturday to boot - and by Monday morning we were fully operational with all of our software - with everything up and running" says Samuels.
"The reaction of my co-workers and myself has been nothing but positive. They think it's just wonderful and as one of my co-workers describes it - it's like Christmas everyday when she opens the Mac. Wonderful surprises - the gifts that keep on giving" smiles Les. "But of course, it's the efficiency, the speed, and lack of bugginess that are probably the most important function for us here."
"I'm very pleased with the decision we have made at Summit MGT. I have no regrets and will not miss the PC. It already feels like a dinosaur and ancient history."
Les Samuels and Mac a Montreal continue to collaborate on other projects.
