Heat and Control, Inc.

 In Case Studies

Business Situation

Heat and Control, Inc., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of food processing and packaging equipment, was performing manual backup operation using tapes four times a day. It was a laborious and error-prone process, which was taking an enormous amount of time. Also, because of the manual nature of the entire process, Heat and Control could not backup more frequently. Heat and Control wanted to automate the entire backup process so that they don’t have to spend an enormous amount of time managing the entire process.
