Autism Services, Inc.

Workstation Replacement

“Autism Services has been diligent over the past two years in addressing many of its technology needs. The majority of the technology upgrades were essential as the organization moved into a new building earlier this year. However, Autism Service remains hindered by outdated computers that slow down productivity. A recent technology audit revealed that 65% of the agency’s workstations are in need of replacement. The current workstations are operating on software that has limited support.”

One of the organization’s strategic priorities is to “leverage technology to improve internal decision making, efficiency, and communication.” Overall, the Autism Services will be able to better support staff in meeting their daily job responsibilities.

Tower funds will support the purchase of 120 workstations. Autism Services will use its annual IT budget to match this grant request.
