ATLANTA HUMANE SOCIETY GAINS FLEXIBILITY AND IMPROVES COLLABORATION WITH PROVIDYN®’S PRIVATE CLOUD SERVICES
Non-profit sees value in migrating to the cloud after its expansion to a second location
Atlanta – February 29, 2012 – Integris, a provider of IT support, managed and cloud services for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today that its client, the Atlanta Humane Society, has decided to move its existing managed services to Integris’s private cloud. This builds on Integris’s existing partnership with Atlanta Humane Society which included managed services, application and IP telephony support, as well as vendor management for both Atlanta Humane Society locations.
Atlanta Humane Society is Atlanta’s oldest private non-profit animal welfare organization and in December of 2011, expanded its reach by opening a second location. After consulting with Integris, Atlanta Humane Society decided centralizing its technology infrastructure and applications would provide increased capabilities and the advantage of unified communication between facilities. As a result, employees and executives are able to seamlessly collaborate across locations, accessing systems and maintaining capabilities from any Atlanta Humane Society facility.
“Integris has been an extension of our team and an invaluable partner in helping manage the technology needs for our business,” said Chris Slee, Vice President of Finance for Atlanta Humane Society. “After opening our second location, Integris made the recommendation that a private cloud would give us more flexibility and enhance collaboration across the organization.”
“This is a wonderful opportunity to continue supporting Atlanta Humane Society in its mission to prevent neglect, abuse, cruelty and exploitation of animals,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of Integris. “As with many other non-profit organizations, Atlanta Humane Society is extremely budget conscious and being receptive to new solutions such as the cloud, can bring tremendous benefits, such as reliability and enhanced security, at a reasonable cost.”
Integris provides technology expertise, services and support to Atlanta-area small and medium-sized businesses. Backed by certified technology professionals, Integris’s services include managed services, cloud computing solutions, virtualization, help desk and computer support, IT strategy, network security, backup and disaster recovery and IP telephony.
