Contract-Central Relocates IT to VISI’s ReliaCloud™ Service
Web Hosting News – EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – Today, VISI Inc. announced they have signed a three-year agreement with Contract-Central, a Dahl Consulting company. VISI, a division of TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC (TDS HMS), will provide ReliaCloud™ cloud services along with managed services and Internet bandwidth for the Minnesota-based consulting company.
“It was time to move to a local hosting provider with a sound reputation of delivering strong customer support,” said Kevin Moldestad, Operations Manager for Contract-Central. “Our IT infrastructure was aging and we were working with an out-of-state hosting provider that was not providing the customer service we needed. Simply, the time had come to make a switch that will allow us to focus on our clients rather than our IT. After careful evaluation, we decided VISI and their Minnesota-based ReliaCloud service would be the best solution for us. I felt the sales team understood my needs and would be easy to work with as we grow.”
Contract-Central, based in St. Paul, Minn., is a leader in providing solutions to corporations in their quest to procure contingent and full-time staff. The company partners with customers to find creative ways to blend the acquisition and hiring process into one “Human Capital Management” arena.
In choosing VISI’s ReliaCloud service, Contract-Central is able to transfer their IT infrastructure to an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model. By placing their data on VISI’s ReliaCloud solution, the company can more efficiently care for the day-to-day management of job postings and requisitions for their customers.

Through its sister company, Vital Support Systems, VISI also sells, installs, and manages IT infrastructure solutions from world-class hardware and software vendors such as Cisco, EMC, Hewlett Packard, VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix.
