Launched in April, 2014, Davis partnered with a fitness tracking program: “IncentFit” to challenge their employees to get more active. Employees compete using any fitness tracking device which is synced with the Incentfit software. Employees are able to track their fitness usage from running, walking, biking or swimming as well as their co-workers. Prizes such as gift cards are issued bi-monthly to the top 3 – 5 employees who have the most steps. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010, “Less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Only one in three adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week.” Since the program has started, several employees have lost weight and lowered their BMI (Body Mass Index). The increase in energy promotes productivity and overall employee satisfaction.
Davis Partners was honored to participate in the Building Block Foundation Fund’s annual fundraiser. The celebration took place on the Rooftop of the Marke on September 15, 2016.
In addition to sponsoring a table at the event, Davis Partners also sponsored a runway model in our own Executive Vice President, Richard Holden!
We had a wonderful evening at this real estate industry event and all to benefit great children's causes.
Davis Partners prides itself on being a forward thinking and acting company especially when it comes to servicing our clients in the areas of Management Services, Accounting Services, Construction Management Development, and Leasing Services.
Pam Winkler, Davis Partners’ Chief Operating Officer, stated, “We understand that around-the-clock access to critical data, applications, and systems is the backbone of our ability to deliver on our promise of superior customer service and responsiveness.”
To that end, Davis Partners, engaged Thrive Technology Solutions to develop and implement a comprehensive and robust Disaster Recovery plan, Disaster Recovery system, and IT processes – complete with vigorous testing. The comprehensive Disaster Recovery system put in place includes a voice broadcasting solution to remain in contact with staff while systems are down, email continuity so that important business communications are not disrupted as well as the remote access and file platform for business continuity.
After extensive research, CT based backup and recovery company, Datto Inc. was selected as a platform for the DR system. Thrive worked with Datto on behalf of Davis Partners to conduct multiple “IT team” tests during off hours to ensure that all systems were correctly configured to minimize the amount of downtime in the event of a disaster. However, we did not want to stop there. It was of utmost importance to the leadership team that we knew that we would be able to run our business during operating hours when the moment strikes. In late December, Davis Partners successfully completed a full Disaster Recovery test which validated our technical and logistical capabilities.
Amanda Azzato, Managing Partner, Thrive Technology Solutions, stated “Davis Partners sets the Disaster Recovery bar high. Far too many companies do not have Disaster Recovery plans, leaving their IT environment, and more importantly, their critical data at risk – particularly given today’s threats from malware to natural disasters. Further, for the companies that have a Disaster Recovery plan in place, most never actually test the plan, which is the equivalent to IT Russian roulette. During an outage is not the time to figure out that a company’s Disaster Recovery plan does not work. This is why we are very excited that Davis Partners has made Disaster Recovery a priority.”
Datto estimates that less than 5% of their client base performs Disaster Recovery tests. This is astonishing as they have well over 50,000 devices currently in the field.
As a result of Davis Partner’s proactive approach to Disaster Recovery planning and testing, our clients benefit from knowing, not just hoping, that Davis Partners has proven plans in place to meet the demands of an ‘always on’ world.
Pam Winkler emphasized that, “We have made big investments into our IT infrastructure to ensure data retention is never in question. We require real, measurable results for our IT investment – and we got it. But that’s not the end; we are already planning for our next test because continuous improvement is a way of life at Davis Partners.”
