Our Technology

We have a UPS power back up, as well as a full natural gas generator that can power the entire building for an extended period of time if necessary.

Our connectivity is powered by three separate ISP's to enable web integration and email. All of our phone lines and numbers (local and toll free) are brought in through multiple carriers to ensure that telecommunication needs are met, even if one carrier is experiencing a technical difficulty. With the increased demand in text messaging, we are also using three separate cell phone carriers for text messaging delivery of messages.
