Like many nonprofits, Together runs lean to preserve and direct resources back to the people who need them most. In 2018, President and CEO Mike Hornacek made the decision to adopt the cloud across their entire organization, from their enterprise software to phone systems and video surveillance infrastructure. The non-profit recently updated their cameras and ultimately, desired a cloud-based solution that would allow them to preserve their recent investments.
As a longtime Milestone customer, the security upgrade needed to be able to integrate with their Milestone-XProtect
video management software. After researching cloud-based security solutions, Hornacek decided that Arcules was capable of fulfilling all of their requirements and would allow for future scalability for the organization. The Arcules’ open platform enabled Together to leverage their existing cameras and provide cost and operational efficiencies.
“By adopting a cloud-based platform, Together has been able to significantly reduce security management and maintenance,” said Hornacek. “Software upgrades are automatic, and continuous monitoring and proactive support alerts our team to potential issues before they become problems. As a nonprofit, we are often spread thin, and Arcules cloud-based infrastructure has made us more effective in ensuring the safety of our facilities and participants.”
“Arcules is proud to play a part in offering our unified cloud platform solution for Together,” said Nigel Waterton, CRO, Arcules. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for Together’s services surged by more than 400% across all programs and their volunteer count was cut in half. Today, they have the support of a robust technology backbone that empowers them to monitor activity from any location and provides peace-of-mind that safety and security are enhanced, even when staffing is reduced. As Together Omaha continues to grow, we look forward to scaling with them.”
