Marketing Research Firm With Employees Across the Nation Benefits from Migrating to the Cloud

Atlanta, GA — June 27, 2012Integris, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses, announced today that The Connell Group, has decided to extend its existing managed services contract by migrating to Integris’s private cloud. Based in New Jersey, The Connell Group is a market research consultancy that provides strategic research and marketing consulting services to a host of industries including consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, retail, and electronics.

Since 2008, The Connell Group has relied on Integris to meet its day-to-day IT services and support needs. However, with employees spanning multiples states, Integris recommended the firm migrate to the private cloud for increased efficiency and a more cohesive workforce. Leveraging Integris’s private cloud will give the firm access to updated technology and allow employees to more easily collaborate as if they were in the same office, when actually they operate from disparate locations across the U.S.

“We’ve had a successful, long-standing partnership with Integris,” said Sean Connell, Founder of The Connell Group. “Their strategic recommendation to consider a private cloud was something we could trust, knowing that it will scale to meet our current and future technology needs, increase efficiency and make collaboration among our employees seamless.”

“With a widely dispersed workforce, Integris’s private cloud was an ideal match for The Connell Group,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of Integris. “Small and medium-sized businesses often find and employ talent from multiple geographic locations but still need to run smoothly and present a unified front. Having the ability to collaborate, share information and access technology among employees by utilizing the cloud, makes benefiting from the best talent, even if it is remote, possible.”
