BizTech successfully designed and deployed a brand new network infrastructure for Transamerica Financial Advisors’ remodeled office space in Maumee, Ohio.
With three offices in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, a group of independent TFA agents wanted to bring their separate offices under one roof with shared resources and technology. They desired a brand new, tech-forward space where they could easily collaborate with their clients and each other.

Tyson Moore, the local branch manager of Transamerica Financial Advisors contacted BizTech after a referral from another local Toledo business, Carpets by Otto. He stated their goal was to have a new office space where many independent agents could work and collaborate. This was planned to be a quick remodel, and BizTech would need to build out the network infrastructure from the ground up during a limited time-frame. This project required installation of:
- Network cabling
- Internet service provider with CISP & Buckeye Cable Systems
- Nextiva cloud VOIP phone system
- Ubiquity gateway firewall and switch
- Three high-bandwidth wireless access points for complete office coverage
- Multifunction wireless printer
- Sonos audio network integration
With limited time and a limited technology budget, TFA gave BizTech quite a challenge. However, with only three weeks from network design to deployment, BizTech finished the project on budget and within the estimated number of hours. Tyson said, “BizTech has been tremendous! All the guys were great and we were very pleased with how they handled everything. We are very comfortable continuing a long-term relationship with BizTech as our overall technology solution."
