Our February Client of the Month is Ira Katzenstein, Executive Director of Cattaraugus & Wyoming Project Head Start. He has been administering the entire program for the area’s children and families since 1985 and began working with Databranch shortly thereafter.
Our partnership began at the dawning of the computer age when offices began to implement computers and Head Start needed a unique monitor to accommodate someone’s vision impairment and our relationship has been ongoing ever since. Throughout the years Ira recalled, “We have looked at other providers and have not found a comparable service. When the chips are down, Databranch is here for us and that’s critical. I have an obligation to get the largest value for our organization and I believe we receive that from the Databranch team. When something happens a technician is here at our office working to resolve the issue and that’s something you’ve consistently provided during the years we’ve worked together.”
From Ira’s perspective the biggest benefits Head Start receives as a Comprehensive Care client are, “Knowing that we are as up to date with technology as we can be within our budgetary constraints. We have a system in place that has grown with us and will continue to grow and evolve. I have peace of mind knowing that we’re on the right course and in good hands.” Jeff Bussard, Databranch Account Manager, emphasized how fulfilling it is to work with an organization that values technology and is open to implementing new advancements when they become available. They were an early adopter of our Datto business continuity solution and have always recognized the importance of good security practices. On a personal level, we greatly enjoy working with the Head Start team because of their friendly, welcoming environment and great sense of humor.
The key to our longstanding relationship according to Ira, “The people. You have a heart and that’s important. You understand the nature of our organization and are willing to work with us within E-Rate compliance requirements. Overall, your customer service is just outstanding.”
