Bennett Adelson: Driving Business Impact through Innovative Technology

Dan Cicerchi, Executive VP, COO
Microsoft is continually innovating and driving capabilities across their stack to enable choice and to allow businesses to react much more quickly to the change in the industry, competition and regulations. “The choice of deployment is compelling to fit the needs of that particular workload and the infrastructure maturity of our customer,” begins Dan Cicerchi, EVP, COO, at Bennett Adelson. CIOs are faced with various challenges with regard to dynamics, along with the need to leverage a cost effective solution with the expectation of security and end user experience. In order to solve this obstacle and enable CIOs to work in this new paradigm, Bennett Adelson—a provider of cloud solutions and CRM, helps pivot IT organizations to become owners of security and access. “We help them securely connect to workloads and customize those workloads to meet the specific needs of the business,” explains Cicerchi.

With the company’s partnership with Microsoft, Bennett Adelson is focused on helping clients realize their goals through user-centric technology solutions. The company has also seen incredible momentum with Office365, specifically the growth of SharePoint Online and Power BI. A solutions provider and a consulting firm with eight core practices working together to deliver right-sized, on-budget solution, with the first step for any project being the ‘implementation blueprint’. “This allows us to gain a deep understanding of the client’s needs, while accessing their current environmental assets,” extols Cicerchi. “Additionally, it helps in analyzing the magnitude of the effort, items on the critical path, and general sense of the timeline to ensure that it aligns with the needs of the customer.”

In one such instance, the company worked with a customer who wanted to improve the consistent quality of work delivered by third party partners across the U.S. The firm helped the client define the use cases, design the experience and deliver a responsively designed, SharePoint extranet that is secure and scalable.

In addition, the company has experienced delivery teams who help clients solve complicated, important projects for customers.
“Our business is built on hiring passionate, technical and creative consultants and enabling them to deliver high-value, important projects for the customers we serve,” says Cicerchi.

Bennett Adelson also hosts and sponsors many community events including the founding of the Cleveland .NET SIG, CRM User Group, SharePoint Roundtable, and System Center User Group. “We also present on the newest technologies and tools that are available so that everyone can stay up to date on the market trends and spark their interest in learning about newest technologies,” Cicerchi adds.

The company has helped a number of clients overcome their challenges with innovative and cost effective solutions. For instance, Invacare—a leading manufacturer and distributor of non-acute medical equipment, was looking to implement an enterprise technology platform to meet their growing needs around CMS, e-commerce, intranet, internet and extranet. As a part of this large endeavor, Bennett Adelson redesigned and implemented their new intranet, leveraging SharePoint 2013 on Microsoft Azure. By pushing the boundaries of both SharePoint out-of-the-box features and incorporating some customizations, Invacare received an intranet that not only met their technical requirements; but also met the needs of their employees.

Bennett Adelson has recently opened a Microsoft Solution Center in Columbus, OH and Cicerchi expects that to be the first step of our geographic expansion. “Our passion for technology solutions and commitment to our customer’s success seems to resonate in any market. Our focus has always been on investing in our employees and finding great customers that partner with us to do great things together,” concludes Cicerchi.
