The City of Tenino

< Back to All Case Studies

Formed in 1873, Tenino is a small city of 1,800 people located in Thurston County, Washington, between Seattle and Portland. This tight-knit community values hard work and community support.

The city government’s 16 employees were relying on an aging IT infrastructure not fit for the work it needed to accomplish for the community’s benefit.

The Challenge

  • Modernizing Tenino’s IT infrastructure within its budget restrictions
  • Maintaining technology systems so that they can be faster, more efficient, and secure

The Solution

  • Complete upgrade of the existing IT infrastructure
  • Continual support via the managed services program
  • Migration from failing outdated servers to the cloud

Saying Goodbye to Outdated Infrastructure

The existing system was not capable of meeting the needs of the city government and posed safety and security risks. This issue needed to be addressed with a complete overhaul of the Tenino IT infrastructure, within the city government’s budget constraints.

A Partnership Focused on What Matters Most

Tenino trusted Right! Systems to update every aspect of their IT structure from new equipment, VPNs, and cloud migration.

After the systems were up and running, Right! Systems went the extra mile by providing comprehensive training to the employees on how to operate their new equipment and servers safely. The City of Tenino made the most of our managed services program, ensuring the longevity of its system and guaranteeing high-quality work for its community.

“I love the fact that the Right! Systems team takes care of us even though we’re little. You don’t have to be a big company to do business with them. You can be the little guy, and you’re still important. That is amazing.”

Maria Rodriquez Police Clerk, City of Tenino
