Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
ProviDyn, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofit organizations, announced today that The Connell Group has extended its existing managed services contract by turning to ProviDyn for strategic direction in configuration and setup of new offices in New Jersey and X. The Connell Group is a growth-stage market research consultancy dedicated to bridging the gap between market research and brand strategy.
Since 2008, The Connell Group has relied on ProviDyn to meet its day-to-day IT services and support needs and migrated to the managed service provider’s private cloud in 2011. With employees spanning multiples states and new offices opening in New Jersey and Chicago, The Connell Group enlisted ProviDyn to procure equipment, review building plans, expand phone systems and ensure proper cabling and wiring. ProviDyn recommended and selected Internet providers and also configured and deployed the firm’s network infrastructure, firewall and switches, which easily integrated into their existing private cloud environment.
“Ensuring the new offices run smoothly, have a solid infrastructure and are well integrated with our other locations is critical to our operations,” said Sean Connell, Principal of The Connell Group. “ProviDyn has consistently made reliable strategic recommendations and it put our minds at ease knowing they were handling the IT strategy and procurement for our new offices.”
“Often, companies don’t consider the various strategic IT decisions that go into opening a new office,” said Hamish Davidson, president and co-founder of ProviDyn. “Making the added effort upfront to properly configure the network and procure the right equipment can eliminate a lot of downtime and ensure smooth collaboration between offices.”
ProviDyn provides technology expertise, services and support to help small and mid-sized organizations sustain growth and strengthen performance. Backed by technology experts, ProviDyn helps organizations gain the full benefits of existing technology, make strategic investments in implementing new technology and maintain an infrastructure that is secure, reliable and flexible. ProviDyn offers managed services, mobile computing, IT strategy, virtualization, cloud computing, business continuity, network security and IP telephony.
