Outsourcing wireless to VCPI proved best resource investment for Lutheran Home and Harwood Place

Located in Wauwatosa, Wis., Lutheran Home and Harwood Place provide a full continuum of care and services. Creating a better wireless Internet experience for staff, clients, residents, and guests was a top priority for the facilities.

Lutheran Home teamed with VCPI to project manage a full wireless evaluation with increased scope to include new active areas in both facilities and coordinate the network cabling with a VCPI vendor. “We were already partnered with VCPI for our IT solutions so it seemed a natural fit to work with them on our wireless project,” said Mary Swoboda, VP of Support Services for Lutheran Home and Harwood Place. “It was the right decision, since the project scope ended up being for more than just wireless. Rather than making the capital investment ourselves we knew it was in our best interest to outsource as much as possible to VCPI to manage … VCPI did a great job communicating with us, and providing options and solutions.”

As a result, Lutheran Home and Harwood Place now experience better coverage, better capacity and better access. They now have the ability to expand Internet access throughout the facilities and can see the benefit across all user groups.
