Alexandria Chamber of Commerce Chooses Cloud Computing from Cetrom IT for Ease of Access and Predictable Cost Model

Cloud expert provides reliable, outsourced IT solution to support more than 850 members across the Washington, D.C. region

Vienna, Va.Cetrom Information Technology, Inc. (Cetrom IT), a leader in comprehensive, cloud-based IT solutions, announced today that the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce has chosen the company’s fully outsourced, Cloud computing solution because of its predictable cost model, ease of access and reliable 99.99 percent uptime guarantee.

One of the largest chambers in the Washington, D.C. region, and a founding member of the United States Chamber of Commerce, the Alexandria Chamber has 850 professional business members and partners employing more than 49,000 people region-wide. Just like many other nonprofit organizations on limited budgets, the Alexandria Chamber struggles to secure large capital purchases. With Cetrom IT’s predictable monthly fees based only on the needs of the organization, the Chamber can budget a monthly expense alongside other utilities instead of incurring thousands of dollars in capital expenses for hardware replacement and software upgrades.

Tina Leone, President and CEO, Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, said, “With an IT background, I was already aware of the multitude of benefits the Cloud could offer a small, nonprofit organization like the Chamber. This year, instead of approaching our board of directors about purchasing expensive new hardware, I offered an alternate, cost-effective solution that would provide reliable, secure access to all our resources without the worry of on-site maintenance or the expense of a new server. With the predictable cost model, excellent customer service and guaranteed uptime, we are very satisfied with our decision to move to the Cloud and look forward to a long, successful relationship with Cetrom IT.”

In addition to selecting standard office and accounting applications for its Cloud solution, the Alexandria Chamber has also chosen ChamberWare, membership management software designed for Chambers of Commerce to manage all aspects of their organization, from Cetrom IT’s library of more than 150 leading technology applications. Backed by Cetrom IT’s unparalleled technology infrastructure, the Chamber members and staff can rely on a 99.99 percent uptime guarantee to access all their IT resources from their work office, home office or on the road.

Christopher Stark, CEO and Founder, Cetrom IT, said, “Cloud computing is a perfect solution for any nonprofit organization struggling to justify large purchases to its membership and board of directors. It gives these organizations access to leading technology in a cost-effective, predictable manner while outsourcing the responsibility of maintaining, upgrading and servicing the IT resources to the IT experts.”
