Transforming Barefoot & Company’s IT Infrastructure with SparkNav’s Cloud Solutions

Barefoot & Company


IT Infrastructure

Client Overview:

Barefoot & Company, based in Charlotte, NC, has carved a niche as a premium supplier and installer of shower doors, mirrors, glass, windows, screens, and other specialty building products. With a commitment to quality driving their operations and over 100 employees to coordinate, the availability and security of information are paramount.


Before partnering with SparkNav, Barefoot & Company’s disparate communication methods for job scheduling and material distribution led to inefficiencies and security concerns. The existing on-premises file storage and email solutions were due for an upgrade and did not meet the growing demands for a mobile and agile workforce. Additionally, the capital expense of upgrading their on-site systems was a significant deterrent.


The team at Barefoot & Company was hindered by outdated technology that led to scheduling mishaps and inconsistent information flow among crew members. The reliance on a mix of emails, phone calls, and paper notes was unsustainable, costing the company valuable time and resources.

SparkNav’s Solution:

To address these challenges, SparkNav provided Barefoot & Company with a suite of cloud server solutions and virtualization technology. This platform enabled off-site hosting of resources and offered an integrated environment for historical data, logistics planning, and hosted services. SparkNav’s solution offered a seamless, cloud-enabled user experience, allowing for efficient access to key files, resources, and collaborative logistics management tools.


The cloud server solutions and virtualization provided by SparkNav have revolutionized Barefoot & Company’s IT landscape. With multiple virtual machines on a single host server, Barefoot & Company has streamlined its business processes without the need for multiple physical servers. The proactive support and monitoring services from SparkNav ensure that aging equipment is identified and replaced in a timely manner, preventing potential downtime. The transition to a cloud-based infrastructure has not only safeguarded against on-premise equipment failure but also facilitated a more proactive IT management approach.
