Renodis client Kory Nadeau, Co-Head of IT at Presbyterian Homes & Services, highlights how having Renodis manage their communications makes IT more efficient and valuable to the organization.

 “Before Renodis we were quickly becoming bogged down with management of our mobility environment due to the tremendous growth of mobility in our service area. Our IT team consists of limited internal staff, so we were really happy to find a trusted partner in Renodis. They took over the ongoing management of our mobility and we’re now ready to scale for growth as we continue to focus on expanding our communities. On top of that, they also lowered our operating costs by 17%. The Renodis team gets it, and we’re happy to have them on our side.”
