LOCAL TRI-COUNTY NON-PROFIT TO WIN THREE YEARS OF PRIVATE CLOUD SERVICES AND IT SUPPORT WITH COMMUNITIES' HELP
CIO Solutions is giving away $200,000 in IT services to a local non-profit during their Tri-County Cloud Give Away Contest.
Santa Barbara, CA, January 2, 2013 - CIO Solutions, one of the Tri-Counties' largest and most successful IT companies, is asking Tri-County communities to nominate and then vote for one deserving charity in their area to win three years of free Private Cloud and IT Support.
"2013 is upon us, charities are still experiencing tremendous financial strain due to reduced government grant and individual donor support during these challenging economic times, and this is one way we can give back to the communities that have helped our company to become successful," CIO Solutions President Eric Egolf said.
CIO Solutions' free private cloud services will be a combination of the following - whatever is best suited for the winner: Hosted Exchange, Hosted Desktops, Dedicated Private Cloud Servers, and/or On-Premise IT Management."It is a combination of services that we regularly provide to local businesses and non-profits at an average cost of up to $200,000 dollars over three years! So this offer is nothing to sneeze at," Mr. Egolf explained.
Mr Egolf continued saying, "We could easily choose a deserving non-profit that our staff personally likes or knows about, but that doesn't seem fair as it limits the pool of possibilities. By having communities nominate and vote for their own favorites, we gain a deeper awareness of who might best deserve and benefit from this giveaway."
CIO Solutions has set up an online nominating and voting process that can be accessed by going to their website at www.ciosolutions.com. Nominate, Vote, Winners and FAQs pages have been created to support what is being called The CIO Solutions Tri-County Private Cloud Giveaway Contest.
The nomination phase of the contest will end January 31, 2013.When the nomination phase is finished, CIO Solutions will narrow the list to two non-profits from each county - Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo - and then ask communities to vote for one personal favorite. Voting will begin in early February and end February 28th.
When the voting is complete at the end of February, CIO Solutions will tally the votes and select a winner. The winner will be announced in March.
