Insurance is about protecting people at their most vulnerable time. When Hurricane Katrina caused catastrophic damage to the Gulf Coast, insurance companies needed help delivering on this promise. Connecticut-based Kelser Corporation enabled its enterprise insurance customers to provide immediate assistance, with the rapid deployment of technology and personnel to the region.
A leading information technology solution provider, Kelser is known for its expertise in project management, engineering, executive consulting and supply chain services. Kelser also specializes in management of the entire IT lifecycle, from order initiation to asset disposal.
“We’re large enough to handle the job, but small enough to care about each of our clients,” says President Barry Kelly. Founded in 1981 as New Technology Systems, Kelser has helped its customers transform IT into a business enabler. Their focus is on the relationship with a customer, helping them meet their business goals and objectives in the most cost-effective way possible.
“We believe in long-term relationships,” Kelly says. “We support our customers through all business cycles, as opposed to going in for the quick sale. Whether a company is growing or contracting, we help develop strategies to solve business challenges.”
Kelser’s in-house professionals are the best in the business. Jonathan Stone, one of the industry’s most respected IT specialists, recently joined Kelser as Technology Solutions Executive. “Jon’s background as an IT executive provides Kelser the unique ability to understand the IT landscape from the customer’s point of view,” Kelly says. “We listen to our clients and then figure out a solution that best meets their needs.”
Premier certifications from HP, Cisco, Intel, VMWare and other leading manufacturers put Kelser on the cutting edge of technology. For example, Kelser was among the first to offer the 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processors, which significantly increase PC security without compromising performance.
The company has received countless awards, including six years as Supplier of the Year from a Hartford-based global leader in healthcare insurance. A large part of the Kelser culture is giving back to the community. The Kelser Foundation supports numerous charities year round, culminating in the Kelser Charity Challenge, one of the region’s most popular golf events for the last 16 years. The foundation supports the American Lung
Association, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Wounded Warriors Project and many more deserving organizations.
A local presence with global reach, Kelser is ready for the next chapter, with a clear eye on the future.
“I grew up in this area, and I love the people,” Kelly says. “Our employees are like family and our customers are number one.”
