OneNeck IT Solutions announced today a new multi-year contract with AlloSource. A Denver-based nonprofit organization, AlloSource specializes in maximizing tissue donation through its regenerative medicine therapies. IT downtime can mean AlloSource’s biologic products don’t get to the surgeon on time, thereby affecting life-saving opportunities.
“With AlloSource’s growing business, it became even more important to have an IT partner who could ensure an always-on environment and we were immediately impressed with the insightful questions OneNeck asked,” said Alan Okerman, AlloSource Director, IT. “It showed us they were listening when we told them about the important work we do, which gave us confidence and peace of mind that they were committed to understanding the role IT plays in ensuring we achieve our goals.”
After fully understanding and scoping AlloSource’s technology needs and requirements, OneNeck designed a highly available ReliaCloud production environment in Denver with disaster recovery based out of the OneNeck data center in Des Moines, Iowa, ensuring 100% uptime.
According to Jeff Volkert, director of Advanced Services at OneNeck, the team followed project methodology and risk mitigation steps to ensure technical and business requirements were clearly articulated, planned for, designed, and then, met. These efforts took several months to complete and required excellent communication and collaboration to meet the quick timeline and ensure successful migration, without incurring any downtime.
“Because of the OneNeck team’s detailed planning, our migration was flawless,” Okerman stated. “We were impressed with their expertise and professionalism and value them as a trusted advisor and partner. Together, we’re ensuring our biologic tissue products get to the customers who need them to save and heal their patients.”
