Business IT Solutions to Modernize Wheeler Ridge’s Agricultural Sector Get Started with a Tech Consultation
The rocky canyons of Wheeler Ridge give a rugged beauty to our little Southern California town, and we’re fortunate to have a thriving economy here. As a key stop along the I-5 from LA to Bakersfield, it provides a lot of travelers with a scenic place to stay for the night and enjoy the local flavor—like that West Coast staple, In-n-Out burgers and fries.
Of course, all of Wheeler Ridge’s local businesses rely on its strong civic infrastructure to thrive outside the major metropolitan areas. Any California resident knows how protracted the droughts can be and rural communities are especially dependent on a reliable water-delivery infrastructure. Coupled with its economic dependency on the agricultural industry in the area, Wheeler Ridge is truly counting on a smart, modernized water district to provide consistent service and keep our town alive. That’s why Kern County’s water department relies on DiamondIT to enhance its communication and distribution methods for a smart, equitable distribution of our water supply. As a Central Valley neighbor in Bakersfield, DiamondIT has the experience to provide business IT solutions to municipal entities and businesses to help them achieve their goals.
Using IT to Make the Water Flow
There’s no question that smart water management is necessary in California, especially in vast, unincorporated areas like Wheeler Ridge. That’s why, when the Wheeler Ridge-Maricopa Water Storage District—a public entity that covers about 230 miles of Kern County and supplies water to 90,000 acres—needed an IT upgrade, it turned to DiamondIT.
The district was struggling with a very old computer system that prevented its employees from accessing each other’s desktops at all times, which proved a hindrance when they needed information on the go. This meant employees were constantly communicating to share files, which led to a plethora of unsecured USB drives floating around.
In 2015, we helped Wheeler Ridge make the switch to an on-premise server. This new system allows employees to easily share files, access information from anywhere, and store materials in a central location. With the addition of a server, employees no longer need to worry about backing up individual computers because all of their information is backed up and always available, even if a machine crashes. We made the district’s system more secure, more accessible, and more responsive to the needs of the district and the community it serves.
