Overview

Since 1986, ContraVest has been on a mission to maximize the economic value of their clients’ apartment joint venture investment through excellence in development, financing, construction, and property management.

The company not only develops upscale multi-family communities, but also performs the general contracting and property management services for ContraVest developments and third-party clients. 

Challenges

Technology is ever-changing. As a family-owned business, ContraVest has 34 years of experience, growth, and integration—and their goal is to stay ahead of the game.

ContraVest’s Chief Technology Officer, Wendy McWhorter Manning, approached us seeking IT services to help the company better achieve their goals and meet industry standards, all while maintaining innovative technology solutions.

Results

Since the beginning of our partnership with ContraVest over two years ago, NeverBlue IT fully integrates with their systems, processes, and work environments.

Acting as the CTO’s virtual assistant, we handle maintenance, issue resolution and installation support on her behalf, allowing her to be more innovative and focus on larger projects.

We are very proud to have gained the trust of our client, who can rely upon us to provide premier customer service. ContraVest is confident in our response time, knowledge, and technology solutions, and counts on our team for consistent and reliable assistance.

Successful IT projects include:

  • Deployed new wireless systems for ContraVest’s remote construction trailers and for luxury apartment communities, adding internal and guest secure wireless for the clubhouse and resident amenities. We enhanced their systems by providing continued support, centralized management, and monitoring.
  • Upgraded security and virtualized the server at ContraVest’s corporate office.
  • Added Secure VPN to allow remote users to securely work from home or at remote offices.

“Reliability and consistency are the most important assets of an IT team. I rely on the wide spectrum of services provided by NeverBlue IT that include future-proofing and secure systems. I am pleased with our recent Cambium services at our construction and property management sites. We intend on upgrading to a new Allworx phone system in 2021, allowing us to expand on our virtual office setups, as needed.

As fast as technology moves today, I rely on NeverBlue IT for their professionalism and expertise to stay ahead of the technology ball while tackling our daily challenges, which gives me more time to focus on ever-changing industry requirements and projects.

ContraVest and NeverBlue IT just celebrated our 2-year anniversary and we look forward to growing with NeverBlue at our side.”

— Wendy McWhorter Manning, Chief Technology Officer, ContraVest


“ContraVest is a great client to work with. With each visit we have made to several of their locations, they always make us feel welcome—especially when we visit their main office in Altamonte.

When anyone in the office needs something done, they do not hesitate to ask. They work with me to understand their needs. Together, we come to an adequate solution for each situation. Every visit to ContraVest is a pleasure and the ContraVest team is very friendly and enjoyable to be around!”

— Alex Carney, Client Service Technician, NeverBlue IT
