(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Hosted application management company, OneNeck® IT Services, announces it has entered into a three-year hosting and IT managed services contract with ReadyOne Industries. Under the terms of the contract, OneNeck will provide cloud-enabled hosting of their Epicor ERP environment, providing them with operating system administration, network management and infrastructure management.
ReadyOne Industries manufactures a variety of military apparel and related products, corner board, boxes and other items principally for the U.S. government. As a nonprofit organization, they provide employment opportunities for individuals with significant disabilities in an environment that inspires and nurtures self determination and success. The partnership with OneNeck will help ReadyOne focus their IT resources on the implementation of the Epicor ERP system, reducing the time and resources required to expand their IT infrastructure.
ReadyOne Industries will also benefit from OneNeck’s cloud-based application hosting expertise for end users and external partners by not increasing IT staff to manage their increasingly complex ERP environment.
ReadyOne’s new ERP infrastructure will be hosted and managed in OneNeck’s hardened data center facilities, which provide highly available cloud infrastructure with 99.9% uptime.
“ReadyOne is an AbilityOne agency whose mission is to employ people with disabilities. Our partnership with OneNeck supports that mission by providing a cost-effective, flexible IT environment,” stated ReadyOne’s CFO, Russell Gibson. “Without the worries of expanding our IT department, we can now focus on serving our customers and meeting our mission more effectively.”
“We are proud to support ReadyOne’s Epicor ERP needs and, in turn, their great mission. We are also pleased to strategically add Epicor to the enterprise systems we host for our customers,” commented Chuck Vermillion, OneNeck’s CEO.
