Once a $4B Fortune 500 company, Fleetwood Enterprises had a centralized IT department that provided services to all their business divisions. Under bankruptcy, the company sold its assets to two Investors who each bought a business division of the company, forming two new companies - Fleetwood RV and Fleetwood Homes. Splitting the IT operation was not an option, as it was cost prohibitive and disruptive to the new businesses. To master these challenges Fleetwood Enterprises chose Allied Digital through its US subsidiary En Pointe Global Services (EPGS). Fleetwood Enterprises deployed the cloud computing model. EPGS actively identified and eliminated several business disruption risks by adding redundancy at both staff and hardware levels and reassigning critical services contracts.
