Powered by a grant from the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation set about standardizing the workplaces of the consortium's members, mostly health and human services non-profits, as they came aboard.
They found that most of these organizations dedicated so much of their funding to helping the people they serve that information technology just wasn't a priority; it couldn't be. Most of them had no networks, no way of effectively sharing files, no connection to the Internet, no email to speak of. So MITCON had to start to find ways to bring these folks up to speed, to get their hardware and software updated, to help them budget for IT needs. And they had to do it efficiently and affordably.
That was then; today MITCON is delivering top-tier IT service, support and planning to 35 organizations around Midland.
