Coffee Coaching, the joint HP & Microsoft’s program in association with Intel, Heartland Technology Group and Shelter Pro, are pleased to announce the Joplin Humane Society as the next Extreme IT Makeover recipient. After the devastating Joplin tornado a year ago, the Joplin Humane Society worked hard to help injured animals, and reunite the community with their lost pets. Thanks to the Joplin Humane Society, hundreds of animals were rescued and reunited with their owners.
Just before the one year anniversary, Larry Hedin, VP of Sales, and Marketing at Heartland Technology Solutions nominated the Joplin Humane Society to receive an Extreme IT Makeover. Extreme IT Makeover is a joint program between Microsoft, HP, and Intel, created to help small, not-for-profit businesses advance their mission by improving their business technology. Joplin Humane Society will receive a brand new IT solution, designed and installed by Larry Hedin with software and hardware donated by HP, Microsoft and Intel. They will also be receiving a new records system designed specifically for keeping animal control and animal shelter records donated by Shelter Pro.
The Joplin Humane Society is a private, non-profit animal welfare organization. They work hard to serve the people and animals of the four-state region with a variety of programs including adoptions, pet therapy, and humane education for children of all ages. To assist the Joplin Humane Society to continue to support the community and help animals in need, they will be set up with Microsoft Small Business Server 2011 Premium on a HP ProLiant Gen8 Server using Xeon Intel based processors, HP notebooks powered by Intel vPro technology, and Shelter Pro as the shelter management software, in addition to digital signage and other technological improvements.
