CIAN HELPLINE INITIATIVE TO PROVIDE FREE IT SERVICES AND JOBS IN PEORIA
February 23, 2009 Peoria, IL- CIAN, Inc. is pleased to announce a new community service initiative, “Businesses Back-to-Back (B3) Helpline”. Recognizing that budgets are tight and Information Technology (IT) is crucial to a company’s continuity of operations and success, CIAN has launched this service to assist local businesses with their IT concerns. Beginning February 23, 2009 CIAN will offer free support for any IT related issues a business may have. Additionally, seats in this call center will be filled by IT professionals in the community currently seeking full-time positions with benefits.
“Let’s get back to the basics and turn this around. We all need to reach out to those feeling the economic crunch, fight back to back and help one another. The mission is two-fold: while helping companies with network support, we are also providing jobs for recently released technicians.” -- Steve Hope, President and CEO of CIAN.
Founded in 1990 by a retired Navy veteran, CIAN was originally established to install and maintain computer networks, but quickly progressed to become a recognized leader in migrating important information from legacy software and equipment onto state-of-the-art high technology systems.
Since 2001, CIAN (a local CISCO, Symantec, and Microsoft Certified Partner) has been specializing in securing customer information and responding to corporate concerns for safeguarding networked data. CIAN opened an office in Peoria, Illinois in January, 2007 to fulfill a need to remotely monitor, analyze, and secure government and commercial networks.
“The CIAN call center will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and may expand to the weekends if the need arises.” says Hope. Technicians will be available to troubleshoot software and hardware issues and resolve them for companies in need of support during these tough times. For more complex issues, a technician may be dispatched to work on-site – all for free. In the event companies need new or replacement hardware and software to continue their operations, this program will allow CIAN to sell those products at cost.
