Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology Inc. (CCAT), a nonprofit organization headquartered in East Hartford, today announced an agreement to provide comprehensive IT services to Oak Hill, Connecticut’s largest private provider of community-based programs for people with disabilities.
Oak Hill serves more than 40, 000 people through 16 distinct programs in 115 program sites located in 55 towns throughout the state.
Long recognized as a leader in offering cutting-edge services and solutions for people with disabilities, Oak Hill offers a continuum of care for people of all ages – from birth to seniors – including programs for housing, employment training, education, assistive technology, healthy relationships, early intervention, recreation, camping and the arts.
“As we continue to pursue new ways to utilize technology as an integral part of our daily work, we look forward to partnering with CCAT,” said Barry Simon, Oak Hill’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re excited about the redevelopment of our intranet and to identifying new solutions that will help us become more data-driven, streamline our processes, and improve the overall way we do business and deliver our services.”
CCAT currently provides a full range of IT services to hundreds of schools, municipalities, public libraries and other nonprofit organizations in Connecticut and northern Florida.
“We’re pleased to have an opportunity to bring our expertise in working with nonprofit organizations to Oak Hill,” said Dan Salazar, director of IT at CCAT. “Oak Hill provides critically needed programs to individuals and families throughout the state. We’re eager to assist them in enhancing operational efficiencies and implementing IT strategies to improve their productivity system-wide.”
Under the agreement, CCAT will migrate IT operations to cloud-based platforms, consolidate applications, and develop plans for a new intranet to enhance communications within Oak Hill. CCAT will dedicate three full-time, onsite staff to manage services as well as help desk support. In addition, Oak Hill will have access to emergency support after business hours.
