San Francisco, Jan. 10, 2019 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint security and optimization software for the secure enterprise, today announced that Diversicare, a premier provider of post-acute care headquartered in Brentwood, Tenn., is the winner of IGEL’s IT Baller Customer Testimonial Contest. The $20,000 testimonial prize was presented to April Marbury, CIO, Diversicare, by IGEL North America President and CEO, Jed Ayres, during a ceremony at Diversicare headquarters on Wednesday, January 9.
“We are pleased to be recognizing Diversicare as the winner of our IT Baller Customer Testimonial Contest, and happy for those in need who will benefit from the funds being donated to the Diversicare Disaster & Relief Foundation,” said Ayres. “We launched the IT Baller campaign last year in order to recognize those IT professionals who have risen to the top of their game by making their organization more efficient and more secure, while driving CAPEX savings through the use of IGEL’s software defined solutions. April is a shining example of this, and her success with IGEL demonstrates why modernizing the endpoint is critical to becoming digitally competitive in the age of tight budgets, staffing shortages and increased pressure to protect patient data.”
Diversicare was one of five finalists in the IT Baller Customer Testimonial Contest, which also included Ryan Kelly, Budd Baer; Simon Clark for Crisis at Christmas/Aimar Foundation; James McVicar from The Auto Club Group and Thomas Mangan of Toppan Vintage. Each of the five finalists presented their individual testimonials on the success they have experienced with IGEL during a live face-off webinar held in December. Following a period of public voting in which nearly 1,000 people cast their vote for the top customer testimonial between Wednesday, December 12, 2018 and Wednesday, December 19, 2018, Marbury’s presentation was selected as the winning entry.
IGEL’s Software-Defined Endpoints Help Diversicare Shift to Virtualization
Since 2017, Diversicare has been leveraging the IGEL UD Pocket and the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) to support the roll-out of its Citrix virtualization solutions and the consolidation of its Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems. “The Diversicare story is one of true innovation and cost savings,” said Simon Clephan, Vice President of Business Development, IGEL.“By using IGEL’s software defined endpoints to repurpose old PCs and thin clients, and centrally manage the endpoint, Marbury and her team have been able to reduce demands on IT. At the same time, they’ve quickly and seamlessly integrated newly acquired facilities into the Diversicare managed desktop estate without impacting end users.”
“IGEL has been a fantastic technology partner for Diversicare, and we are delighted to be recognized as the winner of the IT Baller Customer Testimonial contest,” said Marbury. “Thank you to everyone who voted for our story, and we are thrilled that the testimonial prize will be put to good use through our foundation.”
