Acloché has been crafting quality relationships with their client companies and consultants in the staffing industry since 1968. These long-lasting relationships have set the foundation for success. By truly connecting with their consultants and taking the time to learn their goals and aspirations, Acloché continues to place professionals in opportunities that yield their greatest potential in a variety of industries. The company’s largest footprint is in the central Ohio region, but the company is nationwide and has also recently expanded into Canada.
Kim Shoemaker, CEO of Acloché, kindly agreed to be interviewed on her background with the company and provide insight on the impact of technological advancements. Shoemaker started her career with Acloché in 1999 in the accounting department. She was promoted several times into different senior leadership opportunities which led to her current position of CEO. Shoemaker strives to maintain a caring and supportive culture for her employees and explained that the company is a longtime believer of work life balance. She continually strives to show employees gratitude for their hard work and commitment.
Acloché’s business is driven by technology and has implemented several technological advancements to improve their quality of service through EasyIT, Acloché’s managed service provider (MSP). Acloché now has a completely paperless, streamlined process which has improved efficiency and reduced errors. Shoemaker explained that many technological changes have been beneficial in a variety of ways; one of the most impactful changes is the amount of communication via text. Many consultants now actually prefer this method over talking on the phone. Since most of the communication now happens through texting or email, having a reliable network connection is critical for day to day functions. Without a network connection, business would come to a crashing halt. Above all, Shoemaker said the most valuable service EasyIT provides is network security. The number of cyber and phishing attacks is only increasing along with the severity of the resulting damage. In an industry driven by technology, having a trusted MSP is invaluable.
EasyIT has been Acloché’s chosen MSP for over 14 years. Over the years, Shoemaker has appreciated that “EasyIT is always there to talk strategy when a new service or tool rolls out.” This allows Acloché to spend more time focusing on their consultants and clients and less time researching and implementing the necessary updates. “EasyIT will become your IT department. Their technicians are experienced and very knowledgeable!” Shoemaker replied when asked about EasyIT’s quality of service. “Partnering with EasyIT has been beneficial because EasyIT truly understands our business. They provide excellent service so we can focus on what matters, our clients and consultants.”
