Exude, Inc. is a benefits consulting firm located in Center City, Philadelphia. They are a Philly based business specializing in “all things people” and offer consulting services in Employee Benefits, Human Resources, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and Training & Development. In 2019 Exude was growing, and they had a significant growth trajectory for the upcoming years. Adding complexity to the rapid growth, they were working with a managed service provider (MSP) who could not keep up with their development. They were experiencing issues and wanted an MSP that could provide back-end technical support for their organization, keep up with their growth, and provide IT consulting services to support them through it.   

“We needed a provider who could not only keep up with our growth, but also be a supporting factor in that. We wanted a provider who would be able to help our growth, not hinder it” – Chrissy DiGiacoma , Manager of Operations

CompuData became the technology partner of Exude in 2019 during the height of their problems. We understood the business’s growth trajectory, and after meeting with the Exude team and talking over their current issues and future goals, we both concluded that we might be a good fit together. Exude partnered with CompuData for MSP services, Cloud Services, vCIO support and IT consulting services to help them succeed in reaching their business goals. To ensure they had a scalable and high available environment, Exude is fully operating in CompuData’s private cloud, which we manage for them. 

Migrating to the cloud allowed Exude to have technological flexibility, whether employees worked in the office or remotely. It also created security, organization, and flexibility to ensure all company data was available when needed but still protected. Our MSP services helped Exude overcome their growing pains and took the IT burden off their minds. 

“I never have to worry about my business anymore, I know it’s always up and running smoothly.” – Marcos R. Lopez – Exude, Founder & CEO 

This technical support allowed for quicker onboarding for new employees within the growth spurt. Our vCIO and IT consulting services helped Exude create a plan throughout the growth stage and helped forecast new technologies and ideas to have continued growth in the future.  

One of the most significant accomplishments Exude recently had was the acquisition of a small benefits consulting firm. This addition was a massive achievement for Exude, and they wanted to ensure that the technical side of the acquisition went smoothly. CompuData worked to support this acquisition fully, and in a few weeks, the acquisition was complete. This included new PC’s set up, new user accounts created, and all the business’s technical support aspects accounted for. 

Exude is the perfect example of an organization that is doing everything right to promote its growth. When working with a managed service provider, they must be able to keep up with your organization instead of hindering it. Working with a growing business means that you have to support them from the beginning and be equipped to support them through their growth and changing times while enabling them to reach their business goals.
