14 Feb Computech Honored with Prestigious IBM Lotus Beacon Award
Green Bay, WI – Computech Resources, Inc., a developer of e-Business, Open Systems and Infrastructure Technology solutions, announced today that it has been awarded the IBM Lotus Beacon Award for its participation in the development of the CommunityCard System.
The CommunityCard System is an Information Management System designed in collaboration with Catholic Charities to help manage real-time client and services information via a swipe card. The system, currently installed at several Catholic Charities drop-in shelters, is aiding in tracking the number of visitors who use its programs.
“We are pleased that Catholic Charities’ Lotus-based CommunityCard System is being recognized as the best solution in all of North America by the IBM Lotus Beacon awards,” commented Kevin Lawler, Computech vice president, Minneapolis. “Further, we are satisfied to know that the CommunityCard System is helping Catholic Charities streamline how they intake and profile visitors to their centers. Since installation of the system, visitors to the Dorothy Day Center in downtown St. Paul have experienced a new feeling of safety, since problem visitors now have names and are flagged. The staff also benefits by having the power of real-time visitor data, for reporting purposes.”
IBM Lotus Beacon Awards recognize IBM business partners that specialize in Lotus software solutions and have excelled at providing quality products, innovative solutions and superior services to customers.
“Each year our Business Partners raise the standard of excellence for Lotus software-based solutions and this year is no exception,” said Frances West, director of channels, alliances and business development, Lotus Software, IBM Software Group. “Our business partner community continues to add tremendous value to the Lotus portfolio. The superior technology and thought leadership evident in the groundbreaking solutions offered by our winners demonstrates a strong and ongoing commitment to satisfying customer needs and creating the best Lotus collaborative solutions possible.”
The winning CommunityCard System will be marketed to organizations that provide services and need clear record and reporting systems. Organizations that could benefit from the system include state and county governments, domestic violence providers, information and referral agencies and food shelves. The system has a user-friendly interface, can grow with the service facility and includes support for HUD and other annual reports.
