FORT LAUDERDALE, FL and TEXARKANA, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/13 -- Dynamix Cloud Services (www.dynamixcloud.com), a leading provider of cloud-based communication, collaboration and managed IT services, and Ocean Canyon Properties (www.oceancanyon.com), a growing system of privately owned membership resorts, announced today that Ocean Canyon Properties has selected Dynamix Cloud Services as their Managed IT Services and Communications vendor.
Prior to contracting with Dynamix for Managed IT services, Ocean Canyon Properties had successfully implemented Dynamix's dVoice VOIP (Voice over IP) telephony solution for its call centers and corporate users. Ocean Canyon selected dVoice in May of 2011 after a decision to migrate from another vendor's VOIP-based communications system. The decision to migrate was necessitated due to limited functionality, service outages, and poor support by their previous vendor. Dynamix Cloud Services now provides Ocean Canyon Properties a complete end-to-end solution to include support for desktop, server, network, and unified communications users. Dynamix cloud-based services and collaboration tools ensures Ocean Canyon Properties' IT problems are addressed instantly and often, even before they happen utilizing Dynamix's proactive and preventative maintenance and monitoring services.
"We selected Dynamix for Managed IT Services because of the success we had with their dVoice communication solution and services. Our previous communications solution had limited functionality and we had been experiencing outages, poor support and arrogance from our vendor at the time," said Peter Graffman, Founder, Chief Development Officer & Executive Vice President of Ocean Canyon Properties. "Combining Dynamix's cloud-based communications and Managed IT Services allows us to focus on our core business, not our IT infrastructure. Tools like Dynamix's NetHawk and Kaseya provide the proactive monitoring and preventive maintenance to avoid network infrastructure and IT environment issues before they disrupt our users and business. In addition, Dynamix's SLOs (Service Level Objectives) and 24/7 Help Desk ensures that all our requests are addressed in a timely manner assuring our business continuity."
Ocean Canyon is a top resort real estate investment and management firm that oversees all aspects of privately owned or managed properties around the southern United States, offering its members vibrant resort and recreational lifestyle. Dynamix Cloud Services includes cloud-based IP-voice and email communications, network management, virtual helpdesk, backup storage, cloud-based office applications, call center applications, asset management, network monitoring and integration to Ocean Canyon's CRM (Salesforce). These services enable Ocean Canyon to stay ahead of its competition and thrive in the industry.
"Dynamix is pleased to add Ocean Canyon to our ever-growing customer portfolio," said Gregory Walker, Chief Technology Officer of Dynamix Cloud Services. "Ocean Canyon's choice to select Dynamix and completely switch over from our competition demonstrates its dedication to heighten the resort and recreation industry with the best resources, and the commitment to offer excellent services to its members. We are confident that Dynamix's Cloud Portfolio of communications and Managed IT Services will greatly benefit Ocean Canyon's member and staff population."

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
