Hospital Logistics selects Teranet for
TORONTO – Teranet Enterprises Inc. announced that it has been selected
to host and operate data systems for Hospital Logistics Inc.
Hospital Logistics Inc. (HLI) provides supply chain management solutions
to hospitals in the greater Toronto area, including the University
Health Network, Mount Sinai Hospital, Sunnybrook and Women’s College
Health Sciences Centre, and the recently opened Kensington Eye
Medical professionals rely on having adequate supplies available, and
efficient management of these supplies by HLI means doctors and nurses
can focus on patient care.
“Our information systems are critical to our business. We needed a
company that we could trust and rely upon to host and operate our
systems,” said Sharon Booth, Director of IT for HLI. “In the past, we
hosted our servers at our distribution centre. However, with growth in
our business and the desire to reduce the risk of business interruption,
we simply did not have the space, depth of resource or expertise to do
this function ourselves any longer.”
The growth of HLI’s business meant that they required a trusted provider
to manage their systems. The resultant three-year contract with Teranet
will have HLI’s servers and network switches maintained at a secure
Teranet data center.
Teranet opened its newest Class “A” data centre in November 2005, which
provides 24/7 monitoring and management with world-class security and
reliability. With automatic crossover from power feeds from both North
York and Scarborough in the event of a power disruption, HLI can rely on
an infrastructure that is always available.
“We are pleased to offer cost-effective, reliable and experienced
managed IT services for HLI’s growing business,” said Donald Stokes,
Healthcare Practice Lead at Teranet. “Our services can expand as
necessary so HLI can focus on what they do best.”
Teranet Enterprises Inc. provides business-to-business and
business-to-government e-service solutions. With a unique combination of
capabilities and state-of-the-art systems, Teranet Enterprises Inc. is
at the forefront of enabling electronic government service delivery as
well as delivering service potential in the land, legal, healthcare, and
financial services industries.
