InterCloud Systems Delivers Turnkey UC Platform for Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services

By David Delony

InterCloud Systems has announced that the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services has signed an agreement to implement and maintain unified communications (UC) system for the charity.

"We are excited to start this partnership with InterCloud Systems. To that end, our phase one goal for JBFCS, is to replace our outdated technology and core infrastructure with a high quality, resilient solution and a partner that has a history of success with large multisite installations,” Uday Madasu, Chief Information Officer of JBFCS, said. “Our vision is to enable our membership access to advanced features and applications, thereby providing greater efficiency and overall service to our organization. In addition, InterCloud's unique positioning in the marketplace will allow for a smooth phase two migration, as we look to take advantage of cloud computing for our business recovery initiatives."

"We are pleased to report the beginning of a long-term relationship with JBFCS. Our team's focused initiatives were based on a comprehensive review of their long-term business needs. We are confident our fully integrated solution provides JBFCS future growth, cost containment, advanced features, and improved network performance, all within a highly resilient and secure architecture."

In addition to unified communications, the agreement will include professional services and network maintenance in a turnkey manner.

As businesses are seeing the benefits of managed UC systems, so are nonprofits like JBFCS. Nonprofits might be in a good position to adopt managed services, as they typically run on shoestring budgets and lack the sophisticated IT resources and staff that enterprise businesses rely on. Having someone else maintain their networks lets them focus on serving the community rather than having to chase down technical problems.

Managed services can save nonprofits a lot of time and money, both on the initial costs and the ongoing maintenance of these communications systems, as well as giving the potential for more productivity from workers.
