EduCorp Launches New Enterprise-Class Technology Solutions Division, ETC Solutions

Despite economy, EduCorp Training and Consulting, continues to grow by acquiring MDR Consulting and Education to form new division, ETC Solutions

Dallas, TX, October 13, 2008 --( EduCorp Training and Consulting, a leader in IT training, announces the launch of ETC Solutions, its full-service IT consulting division. ETC Solutions provides enterprise-class technology solutions for small- to mid-sized companies.

ETC Solutions is the result of the acquisition by EduCorp of MDR Consulting and Education. MDR Consulting and Education was a fifteen year old IT consulting firm specializing in enterprise-level storage, security, and IBM hardware and software solutions. As a top provider of IBM and Microsoft training, EduCorp found MDR’s solutions to be the perfect complement to their existing offerings.

“We are delighted to be able to offer our clients enterprise-class technology solutions, from strategy, to hardware and software, all the way through long-term technical support. We work with small and mid-sized firms who want and deserve that level of end-to-end technology support, but have found it inaccessible in the past.” said Sue Murray, EduCorp’s founder and President.

“This was a natural fit,” adds Mark Rodriguez, founder of MDR Consulting and Education and now Vice President of ETC Solutions. “Both firms immediately saw that we could serve our clients better by consolidating our expertise.”

With 200+ consultants available to serve clients in key areas such as storage, data security, and disaster recovery, EduCorp is poised to serve as a one-stop shop for clients’ technology needs.

Unlike many large consulting firms, where teams are led by senior technologists while day-to-day development is done by less experienced staff, the ETC Solutions consulting team is comprised entirely of highly experienced IT professionals. Sue Murray comments that “one of the most exciting aspects of the acquisition is the caliber of the consultants that are now a part of our team. Our team now has many years of experience, multiple certifications, and a true dedication to excellence.” Additionally, she adds, “There are no junior team members learning while billing on the client site with ETC Solutions.”
