HIX Corporation: Upgraded IT for Growth

HIX Corporation - OXEN Technology Success Story

When any business or organization has been growing for decades, it’s common for technological sprawl to become an issue. Technology additions, upgrades, and expansions build on each other, oftentimes under the direction of different administrators and multiple generations of IT staff. IT infrastructure may feel like it’s getting out of hand – and consolidation and simplification are in order! At OXEN Technology, we’ve seen this many times after decades in business ourselves.

Getting IT organized, updated, and proactively managed is possible, no matter how daunting it might seem at first. As an example, we want to present HIX Corporation, based in Pittsburg, Kansas, that OXEN has worked with for over 4 years now. HIX is a global leader in manufacturing U.S.-made, top-performing products for the food service, industrial oven, and graphic printing equipment markets. They’ve been in business for over 50 years!

Like many growing businesses, HIX Corporation had a sprawling physical IT infrastructure that was also reaching its end of life. We worked with them to consolidate their physical IT, implement virtualization, and upgrade their software systems (including their on-premise mail server). We have also helped to upgrade and expand their wireless access systems and Internet connections to support cloud services and remote access needs.

After these major projects, HIX’s technology infrastructure is consolidated, updated, and manageable. They now have constant remote monitoring and management of their servers, desktops, firewall, and a robust business continuity backup solution, which reduce the number of IT issues that HIX’s staff have to manage themselves.

We continue to provide ongoing support and IT project work for HIX Corporation, and we look forward to assisting them with their technology needs and plans in the future!
