Fostering a global network with efficient, accessible, end-user support services 

TRC Companies, Inc. is a global consulting, construction, engineering and management firm with 50 years of experience in delivering digitally integrated, environmentally focused solutions to a variety of markets. From decarbonizing energy systems to constructing high-standard healthcare facilities, TRC has emerged as a leader in the professional services space and has rapidly grown in recent years with nearly 6,500 employees in over 150 offices globally, including Canada, China, India, and the UK. 

With plans to continue expanding through acquisitions and developing services, TRC had to re-evaluate their means of supporting a hybrid workforce. Simply hiring more internal staff to meet the demands of onboarding, training, and providing ongoing support to new employees was impractical as delivering these types of services in-house can be burdensome and costly. TRC needed an easier and more sustainable way to support their employees at scale. 

“As the company grew and adapted to a hybrid model, we recognized we had to transform how we supported our employees. Partnering with Alithya provides us with the scalability we needed as a company.”  
—Rob Petrone, VP, Information Technology

Supporting a growing workforce with customized employee onboarding 

Originally utilizing Alithya for end user how-to application support and managed helpdesk capabilities, TRC has since expanded their legacy contract to include additional services to meet the needs of their organization. TRC now leverages Alithya to manage all IT helpdesk tickets, Microsoft how-to support, and new employee onboarding. With the help of Alithya, TRC can now onboard staff quickly, provide new employees with customized training, and easily scale up support as needed with Alithya’s cost-for-growth service model.

“Partnering with Alithya has assisted TRC with improved processes in how we onboard and support our employees.”

To further provide their organization with ongoing support, TRC also deployed Alithya’s continuous learning platform to users. Employees can access the platform anytime through the Alithya Learn Now app, a Microsoft Teams app that serves as a single access point to a variety of training and learning resources. With this continuous learning platform, TRC employees are getting 24x7 access to tools that help them better use their Microsoft applications, including on-demand phone and chat support, instructor-led webinars, and Alithya’s self-paced learning through videos, skill tracks, and tutorials.

A strategic partnership for end user IT support and training

Alithya has been crucial in helping TRC bridge the gap in assisting their employees with modern tech training, 24x7 end user support, and on-demand learning resources through cost-effective solutions.
