Anita Taylor, Who Sees Taylored Through the Eyes of Our Customers, Is Retiring

Image

L to R: Bill Taylor, Anita Taylor, Amy Hart-Ramey

Anita Taylor is retiring, and we're happy for her but wondering how we will ever replace her. Anita has been a customer advocate with Taylored Systems for the past five years. Wikipedia would say that the definition of customer advocacy is a “specialized form of customer service in which companies focus on what is deemed to be best for the customer.” According to everyone at Taylored, Anita is exactly that and more. She has the rare gift of understanding the customers who call in, seeing our company through their eyes.

Anita has been helping our existing customers upgrade their services and introducing them to new products that Taylored has to offer. Her oversight of their projects and persistence with following up and making sure our customers are well taken care of have been key assets to making Taylored such a success.

On the personal side, Anita is the type of coworker who is always able to make someone laugh and feel welcome. She will be greatly missed by not only her coworkers but also her customers, with whom she built strong, lasting relationships over the years.

Taylored Helps Southern Indiana Orthopedics stay at the top of their game

Image

 

The Taylored Systems team is proud to keep Southern Indiana Orthopedics at the forefront of communications technology. Southern Indiana Orthopedics offers dedicated specialists who preserve a legacy of service, expertise and commitment to making their patients stronger. Just as they provide the latest in specialized orthopedic care, we provide them with best-in-class IT services.

We recently helped Southern Indiana Orthopedics with their move into upgraded facilities by providing key technologies. Taylored replaced obsolete analog phone systems with centralized calling for customers and internal calling between sites over five locations. Then we added call recording to improve customer service and for training. And, of course, we included live reporting.

We also improved their carrier services by installing Taylored cloud SIP trunks to eliminate multiple carriers and reduce the ongoing monthly costs. For reliable and consistent bandwidth speeds and guaranteed uptime, we installed AT&T dedicated fiber internet. Now, Southern Indiana Orthopedics has one company to handle both internet and dial-tone issues at all locations.

Taylored improved Southern Indiana Orthopedics’ IT services by leveraging Fortinet (SD-WAN) firewalls to improve their internet reliability and security. All the while, we helped them run their practice more smoothly with personalized IT care and customized solutions.

Talk to our team about your next project. We'd love to lend our expertise to help you stay on top of your game.

Making Their Move: Exec Search Firm Marketpro Hires Taylored

Image

 

The executive search firm Marketpro called on Taylored Systems to handle their move into a new building this month. Marketpro made the decision to hire Taylored after considering the parameters of moving servers, networking equipment, firewalls and their all-important phone systems, as well as evaluating their previous IT provider. Ultimately they concluded that it was time for a new IT vendor, and we emerged as the front-runner.

One of the deciding factors was that Taylored’s services went above and beyond upgrading and moving equipment. We offered a personal touch, starting with a thorough report on the state of Marketpro’s existing IT environment.

The Taylored team then got to work moving over all of their existing equipment, including five servers, networking equipment, firewalls, and phone systems. We helped connect it all to the new suite and get up and running. Finally, we took over Marketpro's managed services to ensure that their systems would continue to run smoothly without adding unnecessary responsibilities to their internal team.

Meet Our Star Employee: Leann Vasbinder

Employee of the Year

The Taylored Systems staff is a gaggle of great employees, so it takes an extraordinary person to stand at the top of this group. Meet Leann Vasbinder. As a team player, she is always willing to help whenever a department is short-handed. Like a fast-moving stream, Leann can be found traveling through the Taylored office, assisting with payroll, answering NOC phones, and covering for our receptionist, Mary. She also jumps in to help with billing.

Leann always finds the time to follow up with customers who have questions. She does an extraordinarily thorough job when invoicing, making sure customers are not charged for items that are covered under their maintenance agreements and advocating for the customer when they call in with questions. She even works out payment arrangements with customers who need a little extra time to pay an invoice.

But Leann’s magic touch goes beyond office work. She set an example for all of us when she made meals for employees who were home due to illness. If that's not enough, she stays on top of the cleaning crew to make sure our offices remain clean and healthy for our staff. We wouldn’t blame you if you needed to sit down and take a break after reading about all of her activities!

Please help us congratulate Leann for being our employee of the year.
