Cunningham | Quill Architects

A remote data backup system keeps this architectural firm’s data safe. Ongoing network maintenance minimizes downtime.

“Bill Walter of the Technology Solutions Group helps us take care of our technology at Cunningham | Quill. Although I’m an architect, I am also the principal who oversees technology issues at the firm. Bill keeps us up and running by maintaining our network and computer systems. As a result, we have little, if any, downtime.

Bill is easily accessible. Obviously, you don’t want to give just anyone access to your business’s sensitive data. But we trust Bill with our data and are glad to have him helping us.”

About Cunningham | Quill Architects


Cunningham | Quill Architects is a Washington, DC-based firm providing architecture, community planning and urban design services.


The Challenge

Cunningham | Quill’s management team wanted to replace the firm’s onsite data backup system with a remote data backup system. They also wanted someone to manage their ongoing network and service maintenance needs.

How We Helped

Bill Walter of Gross Mendelsohn’s Technology Solutions Group set up Datto, a comprehensive business continuity backup solution that replicates all data offsite for Cunningham | Quill. Our team also replaced an aging internal email server with Office 365. We continue to maintain all aspects of the firm’s network, including server upgrades and maintenance, troubleshooting break/fix issues with workstations and remotely monitor key indicators via our virtual IT solution.

The Result

Cunningham | Quill’s network runs smoothly thanks to proactive, ongoing maintenance and monitoring. As a result, the firm has little, if any, downtime.

Should the server in their office go down for any reasonfire, flood, terrorist act, etc.their remote server will have the firm up and running again in no time.
