Client win for Online Tech

ANN ARBOR — The managed IT services provider Online Tech Inc. announced that Integrated Design Inc., an Ann Arbor-based [provider of employee data integration, had selected Online Tech’s virtual private cloud and disaster recovery services for its IT infrastructure.

Founded in 1985, IDI has more than 25,000 clients across North America and offers products such as Time Bank and Quick Time Entry, which exchange a wide range of data between various software systems, including time and attendance, payroll, point of sale, and more.

“We deal with a lot of personal information, and our vendors have a right to be concerned about the security of their data as it passes through our systems,” said Cheryl Karamihas, product manager at Integrated Design. “Having the 24-7 level of security with the high availability Online Tech provides us was very appealing.”

In addition to Online Tech’s virtual private cloud, Integrated Design also uses Disaster Recovery as a Service, which is fully managed by Online Tech staff and enables clients to initiate a three-click test failover. Online Tech clients also have the ability to test major software releases before going live.

“DRaaS has worked really well for us for two reasons,” Karamihas said. “One, testing allows us to put the disaster recovery environment through its paces to make sure it will work in a real emergency and two, we get an added safeguard to make sure we have everything in place before a big release. The service has been awesome.”

Integrated Design has already deployed its cloud infrastructure and is in talks to expand their security services with Online Tech, including deep network and application vulnerability scanning.

Said Jason Yaeger, senior vice president of business development and strategic solutions at Online Tech: “We pride ourselves on providing secure, reliable cloud technology that enables digital transformation for companies across America that puts them in a strong position for future growth. I’m excited to help Integrated Design further assure their clients that they take security and privacy very seriously.”
