Our work in improving the operations and cybersecurity posture for organizations of all types is always vital. When the organization is a nonprofit doing great work on behalf of our veterans, though, it feels even more important.
CHEP (Chesapeake Health Education Programs, Inc.) is a Cecil County, Maryland-based organization with the dual mission of providing transitional housing for veterans and providing continuing education for medical professionals. That’s why CHEP also stands for Communities Helping and Empowering Patriots. Through a variety of programs CHEP helps our veterans to reintegrate into their communities, often from homeless or near-homeless status to permanent housing and stable employment.
CHEP reached out to us with several issues: As a nonprofit organization they needed to meet certain compliance levels; ; they needed the means to collaborate better as they expanded to multiple locations; and they required solutions that were scalable to accommodate organizational growth.
Following a thorough needs assessment, we determined that moving completely to the cloud would be the best solution for CHEP. We consolidated data from multiple sources into the cloud environment, tailored a suite of tools to implement the necessary controls for their compliance requirements, and trained the team on the use of the new setup to foster greater collaboration. As a bonus, we were able to reduce their investment significantly by leveraging Microsoft’s nonprofit model.
CHEP is now fully migrated to the cloud, with dramatically improved collaboration abilities and far fewer worries over compliance. They’re confident in knowing they’ve achieved a solution that can grow as they do, and in knowing they can reach out to Hill Tech for any future needs.
Cathy Bennett, Chief Executive Officer of CHEP, says: “Choosing Hill Tech Solutions to manage our IT needs has been one of the best strategic moves CHEP has implemented. I completely trust their team to advise us on all details related to IT services. From equipment to onsite trouble shooting, a decision to choose Hill Tech as your IT vendor will provide a perfect end-to-end solution for your business.”
