Gift of Wifi Enables Local Non-Profit to Expand Services
RICHMOND, VA. Feb 1, 2016 – - Local IT company Strategic Solutions of Virginia has partnered with global manufacturer Cisco Systems to provide equipment and services for a new wireless infrastructure at The Daily Planet, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing healthcare and lifestyle services to homeless and uninsured individuals in Richmond. This gift enables The Daily Planet to service more patrons than ever before by efficiently improving communications between departments, offices, and exam rooms.
Strategic Solutions nominated The Daily Planet as a contender for Cisco’s Give the Gift of Wireless campaign, stating, “The Daily Planet is a unique organization that devotes all of their resources to furthering their cause, thinking of themselves last. By refreshing their wireless network equipment, we can implement a network that will optimize the work of employees and open opportunities for clients to leverage The Daily Planet’s internet access to apply for jobs, search available housing, and generally improve their daily life.”
The Daily Planet is one of only five organizations in the country to be selected to receive top-of-the-line wireless access points from Cisco. Strategic Solutions is donating the services needed to architect, configure and install the access points, building a brand new wireless network to enable growth in the organization.
“This amazing organization provides a healthcare safety net for the underserved in our region. I have seen the positive effects of this organization firsthand and we are honored to be given the opportunity to use our expertise to further the mission of The Daily Planet,” said CEO of SSVA, Jay Strickland.
Maureen Neal, COO of The Daily Planet, was excited to learn of this gift, affirming, “It means so much to a nonprofit whose resources are directed more to the medically vulnerable patient population we serve than our own infrastructure. The new network will allow our healthcare providers to move from exam to exam and have all the information they need at their fingertips, providing them with additional time to focus on the needs of their patients.”
