AgFirst Farm Credit Bank provides funding and financial services to 22 farmer-owned financial cooperatives in 15 eastern states and Puerto Rico. These cooperatives, operating as Farm Credit and Ag Credit agricultural credit associations, provide real estate and production financing to 80,000 farmers, agribusinesses, and rural homeowners.
eGroup had been providing proactive design, security systems and consulting services for AgFirst up until 2010 when a system error occurred in the IT infrastructure, seriously threatening performance.
Though AgFirst was not contracted for reactive support at the time, eGroup responded immediately and helped identify the root of the system error.
“eGroup has proven that they can deliver enterprise solutions in a very large environment. We have found eGroup to be a valuable partner that can achieve results.” – Director of IT Operations, AgFirst Farm Credit Bank
Since then, eGroup has continued to assess AgFirst’s virtual environment and assist them in moving to the next level of secure and reliable virtualization.
