We are Now Velecor: Why We Changed Posted on March 1, 2019March 18, 2019 by Velecor Services LANrm has been providing cloud solutions, managed IT services and hybrid cloud disaster recovery services for years. But over the last decade, the industry has changed. While we adjusted our service to keep with new trends, we found that the most basic element of our company, our name, was actually becoming a challenge. That’s when we decided to make a change. What’s in a Name? Our company name is a remnant of what corporate IT used to be. LAN is an acronym for Local Area Network. For decades, much of IT solutions revolved around maintaining and servicing LANs for businesses. But as technology evolved and cloud solutions became more prevalent, we realized that our company’s name was getting in the way. The name LANrm only portrayed one set of services, those associated with local area networks. Our company has evolved to do more and will continue to do so in the future. Our team felt the name was quickly becoming outdated. We think a business name should communicate something about who you are and what you do. That’s why we chose the name Velecor. Why Velecor? The name is actually a combination of two key words that we feel represent our company well. The first is velocity and the second is core. Velocity Dictionary.com defines the word as, “rapid of motion or operation; swiftness; speed;…the rate of speed with which something happens; rapidity of action or reaction.” Velocity pertains to the speed with which we will support our customer’s environments. We will proactively detect and manage threats and issues and provide solutions in a speedy and efficient manner. It also represents our attitude toward new technology trends. We will quickly learn and implement those developments that will better serve our customers. Core When we use the word “core,” we are speaking about those things that are of central importance to us. They are the basics or the fundamentals that guide everything we do. Core is a nod to our core values, processes and principles. Conclusion Making the change to Velecor will allow our business to better address the needs of our current and future customers. Those needs continue to evolve as security becomes a central issue for internet users. Companies will have new requirements put upon them, such as those represented in the GDPR law. Velecor is now well positioned to help companies, from solo entrepreneurs to large enterprises, meet those new demands.
