Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) May 27, 2011
Industry Retail Group, Inc. (IRG) (http://www.industryretail.com), a leading provider of retail-centric, broadband-based applications and services, announced its donation of broadband services to insurance claims centerss in both Hoover, Alabama, and Joplin, Missouri in the wake of recent tornadoes that destroyed parts of both cities.
A large, national insurance company had recently set up an emergency office in Hoover, Alabama to help with disaster claims over the next four months. IRG recently provided, at no cost to the insurance office, setup of dedicated broadband, 3G back up, all required hardware, proactive management, professional services and support.
Joe Manzari, COO of IRG, said, “Our hearts go out to the many residents and businesses of both these areas. Not long after we finished setting up our services in a local insurance claim center in Hoover, Alabama, disaster struck in Joplin, Missouri as well. We feel a responsibility to be good corporate citizens and do our part to help the people and businesses in both cities get back on their feet. We’re taking this opportunity to encourage other businesses to do something to help these areas of our country recover as quickly as possible.” Manzari shared, “We provide our broadband services to large retail chains and other multi-site companies. Certainly, the people affected in Alabama and Missouri patronize our customers’ businesses. We feel the people there are, indirectly, our customers, and want to give back to them in this difficult time. Ultimately, our business is about people, and that’s why we’re doing what we can to help.”
IRG has committed to providing the same services to an emergency insurance office in Joplin, Missouri, and has already begun the process to ensure the office is connected quickly and without interruption.
