Aventis Systems® Supports Atlanta Nonprofit with Updated IT Hardware

ATLANTA- August 7, 2014 - Aventis Systems, Inc., a leading provider of new and refurbished technology equipment, assisted TechBridge and Generation Mortgage Company by providing 21 Dell desktop computers for their support of Senior Connections, an Atlanta-based nonprofit with a mission to serve seniors. The organization received the funds to purchase the computers thanks to a donation from Computer Aid, Inc., and Senior Connections was delighted to refresh its IT equipment affordably by using Aventis Systems’ quality computer hardware.

The hardware refresh will help continue the long-term strategy to improve Senior Connections’ IT hardware and software capabilities for years to come.

"The assistance that we've received from the local tech business community has been absolutely amazing," said Debra Furtado, CEO of Senior Connections . "Since we began collaborating with TechBridge and Generation, we've been able to implement software upgrades that have helped streamline the day-to-day management of our organization.This computer donation will allow us to achieve even greater efficiencies while increasing our impact on Atlanta's senior population."

During the event, Furtado briefly discussed the effect of TechBridge's Adopt-a-Nonprofit program on the organization and recognized how members of Atlanta's tech community are making significant contributions to the local community. Leaders from Aventis Systems, Generation Mortgage Company, iVision, The North Highland Company, Leapfrog, Eagle Strategic Management Solutions and Computer Aid are contributing to Senior Connections' continued success.

"We have a long-standing commitment to supporting local non-profit organizations with the right computer hardware and services," said Karl Pearl, Vice President of Aventis Systems.
