Bank upgrades VIA’s computers

A technology gift from a bank is helping the Valley Industry Association’s productivity, said the group’s CEO and President, Kathy Norris.

Replacing the industry group’s aging computers was going to be a costly project. VIA needed to purchase laptops, docking stations, large monitors and keyboards, Norris said.

“Laboring with computer systems over a decade old, it was high time for a change, but adequate funding for the costly state-of-the-art systems our organization needed was a problem,” she said.

Norris inquired about budgeting and loan possibilities with board member Greg Wells, vice president and relationship manager for California United Bank in Valencia.

Wells thought his bank might be able to help a bit more.

“I thought maybe we could help with a gift,” he said.

Wells is a longtime VIA member and he really got the ball rolling, Norris said.

“These newer, faster systems will dramatically increase our capacity for work and bring us up to levels that allow us to interact with our members more effectively, thereby supporting our goals to connect, build and help SCV industry thrive.”

Part of the bank’s mission is to give back to the communities where we do business by supporting nonprofit organizations, such as VIA, that help improve the quality of life for local residents. We believe in VIA’s mission to provide information, education and networking opportunities for local businesses and wanted to help them make a difference.”

“We are ecstatic about the gift and the difference it’s making in our operations,” Norris said.
