Premier HR organization to benefit from Abel’s IT service and solution deployment expertise
Abel Solutions has been selected to provide a broad set of collaboration and IT support services to SHRM-Atlanta, the largest human resources association in the Southeast. Abel will drive the implementation of Office 365 and SharePoint for SHRM-Atlanta and will act as their ongoing IT support, offering a wide range of services from basic PC user support to network and security monitoring.
As Atlanta’s premier HR association, serving more than 2,300 members from over 1,300 companies, SHRM-Atlanta recognized the need for advanced collaboration across both its internal staff, its ever-growing Volunteer Leadership Team as well as their Board of Directors. Turning to Abel to help them leverage the power of Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint, the organization is working to reorganize its internal information management structure to move from a less efficient hierarchical file management structure to a more open and collaborative SharePoint system.
In addition to Office 365 and SharePoint deployment, SHRM-Atlanta will be utilizing Abel’s day-to-day help desk support, desktop modifications, security monitoring services and antivirus protection.
“As our organization looks towards achieving our 2020 Vision, we recognized the importance of being able to fully leverage technology, not only to increase productivity, but more importantly, to increase collaboration”, said Jeanne Artime, CEO of SHRM-Atlanta. “We quickly understood the value our organization would see from Office 365 and SharePoint, but we also knew we needed help both implementing the solution and an ongoing assist from knowledgable IT experts. That’s what led us to Abel Solutions.”
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to work with such a respected and forward-looking organization,” said Abel project lead Rich Kumpitsch. “SHRM-Atlanta has a long-term vision of where they want their IT systems to take them. But they are following a very practical and measured approach to transforming their internal IT systems to ensure success across the board. Leveraging the range of the IT and deployment services available through Abel is a solid step in that direction.”
