Most IT teams have processes in place to deal with security threats like malware, spam emails, and brute-force attacks. But while these processes provide relief of mind and protection from external data breaches, it’s not always outside hackers you have to worry about.

Ad hoc queries and reports are the bane of many IT departments. See how Victaulic makes short work of their ad hoc queries with Surveyor/400.
Headquartered in Easton, Pennsylvania, Victaulic operates 15 manufacturing facilities and 28 branches with over 3,600 employees worldwide. When they needed to meet a significant number of user data query requests without putting undue burden on their IT department, they turned to Surveyor/400.
Brian Due, IT Enterprise Systems Manager at Victaulic, used the solution to make the department more productive. “I know if I didn’t have Surveyor/400, I’d have to hire one person to do nothing but ad hoc programming for queries,” he said. “It’s hard for me to quantify the benefits we receive because it’s become part of our daily life. But I know that we’d have to hire more people without it.”
