To our Employees, Partners, & Clients,

We are pleased to announce that Acropolis Technology Group has successfully completed its Service Organization Control (SOC) 1, Type II examination in accordance with the Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16. SSAE 16 provides globally-recognized guidelines for companies to assess the integrity and effectiveness of their provider’s internal service controls and processes.

Our entire company has long recognized the responsibility we have to our clients and stakeholders. One of the ways we express that responsibility is by ensuring that we are adhering to the highest standards of service quality and operational transparency with our internal operations. We achieve and validate these goals this through our ongoing SSAE 16 certification.

This certification consists of an in-depth, third-party audit of our internal processes and controls. Through the satisfactory completion of this audit, Acropolis Technology Group is able to demonstrate a substantially higher level of integrity and operational excellence in our HeliosVision Managed Services both on premise and in our Data Center. Coupled with our industry-leading IT management platform based here in St. Louis, this gives our clients an even greater sense of confidence in our organization.


The scope of this year’s audit included our internal process and controls that support the HeliosVision Managed Service platform that we provide to customers in the areas of monitoring, disaster recovery, service, hosting, client implementation, client reporting, and various IT processes. The auditors’ report found that there there were no relevant exceptions to Acropolis controls and that our processes meet or exceed the strictest global requirements and are operating effectively.

On behalf of the entire executive team at Acropolis, we are extremely proud of the work and years of dedication to the highest standards that directly result in this certification.


Thanks,
Tracy

There is so much talk about the Internet of Everything, but how much of it is a futuristic pipe dream? After all, for nearly two decades, companies have tried to sell consumers Internet-connected fridges and microwaves, automated home lighting and heating systems, and smart entertainment devices, yet these devices have never caught on in a big way.

Baby Boomers, Gen X and Millennials - oh my!
used with permission from HP Technology at Work

Talent development remains critical to small business performance. Deep-rooted organizational initiatives investing in a company’s best asset—its people—can boost morale, foster collaboration, address skills gaps and heighten productivity.

Yet, today’s workforce presents a compelling quandary: three generations of workers each possessing its own unique characteristics, attitudes and social values that quickly render one-size-fits-all development programs ineffective. The solution?
