J.P. Schwartz, Inc. Helps Launch Catalyst Education of Colorado

September 02, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
J.P. Schwartz, Inc. which specializes in custom network design for businesses requiring secure, dependable, cost effective networks took on a very worthy project in Catalyst Education of Colorado (CatalystEDU). CatalystEDU is a non-profit school, located in Lafayette, Colorado, serving students identified as at-risk for dropping out of high school due to personal, social, physical, emotional or mental health issues.

In order to prepare the Catalyst EDU campus for students, they needed computers, internet connectivity, and the ability to keep it working for students. Catalyst EDU came to J.P. Schwartz with a few goals and requirements for the network. The network needed to provide support for the staff and administration and to provide a safe learning experience for students. This meant implementing a firewall, anti virus solution, removing spyware or malware and providing content filtering to prevent exposing students to inappropriate internet content. It also meant providing a robust backup solution that could quickly recover data or replace a desktop image for students in the event of software or equipment failure.

“John Schwartz and the talented computer network design engineers at J.P. Schwartz, Inc. came to Catalyst EDU at a time when, before we could even open the doors, we had a critical need for computers and not a lot of time or budget. They were able to minimize those limitations and give us everything we needed for the administrative team, staff and students to work with. Not only did we need accessible computers in order to open our doors as a school, but to move forward with our essential mission of providing a place for at-risk students to excel when other academic situations have not worked them. I can’t say enough about the terrific job they’ve done for Catalyst Education of Colorado,” says Ed Porritt, Founder of CatalystEDU.

The IT engineers at J.P. Schwartz, Inc. took on a short-notice challenge like CatalystEDU and delivered on time and on budget. They can do the same for your business.
