Cosentry Helps Advance Services, Inc. Improve IT Operations Across 50 U.S. Locations

24/7 Help Desk Support, Data Backup Services and Scalable IT Infrastructure Help Company Focus on Their Business

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2016) - Cosentry, the leading provider of IT solutions in the Midwest, today announced that Advance Services, Inc. has selected the company's Disaster Recovery Services in addition to Managed IT Services, and Help Desk Support Services currently handled by Cosentry. Cosentry's data center support allows Advance Services' IT team to focus on the initiatives that help grow the business in lieu of maintaining and supporting internal IT operations.

Advance Services started in 1994 in Norfolk, Neb. and has grown to over 50 locations throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Today, the company provides staffing for 40 of the current Fortune 500 companies and supports more than 1,400 clients, with friendly and employee service-oriented relationships.

The company was constantly challenged to keep the existing network and applications systems optimized while also planning to expand the IT infrastructure to support future growth. Advance Services' IT department was stretched too thin trying to address common IT functions, such as:

1. Help Desk 
2. Business Application Support
3. Backup and Recovery
4. Network Uptime and Distribution

"With our small IT team, we needed an IT partner who could provide us with the kind of help desk support that was aligned with how we do business and could support our staff, regardless of time zone," said Dave Warren, Vice President, Advance Services. "We want our IT team to have more time to focus on business-critical initiatives than on taking and resolving help desk calls."

Advance Services selected Cosentry to provide the aforementioned IT functions through its Bellevue and Lenexa data centers. In addition, Cosentry also supports the company's IT team by providing comprehensive managed services support and ensuring that all systems housed within the data centers are optimized and running smoothly. The resulting benefits are:

  • 24x7 Help Desk services supporting all Tier 1 and Tier 2 trouble tickets.
  • Backup services to ensure key systems and business data are always available.
  • Ensuring the company's applications and servers are optimized.

Moving forward, Advance Services will leverage Cosentry's innovative data center services to continue streamlining numerous business processes and implement the use of mobile devices, social media applications and a paperless process for job candidates.

"We leave the day-to-day IT operations to Cosentry so we can focus on innovating for our business. Knowing that Cosentry is our IT partner allows us the freedom to continue to grow and expand," Warren concluded.

"Many companies' IT departments are consumed with maintaining the IT infrastructure, leaving limited time for innovation," said Brad Hokamp, CEO, Cosentry. "We are proud of our ability to help Advance Services cost-effectively scale their business, while allowing the IT team to focus on innovative new offerings that will ensure growth and prosperity."
