Over the years, OXEN Technology has worked with the Joplin Family Y on many aspects of their technology, in support of their mission, from firewall management to remote monitoring of their servers and desktops, to their business continuity and backup solutions and more.
The Joplin Family Y chose OXEN Technology take technology service and support off their plate so they could focus on the YMCA mission. Founded in 1891, the Joplin Family Y is a member-supported, non-profit organization committed to serving Joplin, MO and the surrounding area. Their mission is to provide programs that promote a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
To help, OXEN Technology manages all of the Joplin Y’s desktops, servers, networks, and cybersecurity. Currently, the YMCA’s CEO Juan “Cookie” Estrada is working with OXEN to strengthen their wireless network, consolidate servers, improve security, and move their infrastructure to the cloud.
Additionally, the partnership between the Joplin YMCA and OXEN Technology supports the community. “For 25 years I’ve had the privilege of working with Cookie Estrada and his staff. We’ve partnered on a number of community needs that the Y serves,” says Larry Hedin, Senior Business Solutions Consultant at OXEN. “When the Joplin Tornado disaster hit our city hard, the Y was there, as always, to lend a hand. They provided free child care and other programs, and OXEN donated the IT equipment and service to handle the additional capacity. Our relationship has always been strong and trusted, and we work together to make it simple.”
OXEN Technology is proud to partner with such a reputable community organization like the Joplin Family Y. We aspire to help all local organizations thrive. Technology just happens to be how we do it.
