Student Transportation Inc. Chooses EarthLink's Cloud Workspace And Cloud Hosting To Support Rapidly Growing IT Infrastructure And Create Secure Cloud Environment

"EarthLink Cloud Workspace enables us to incorporate 60 business applications into our cloud infrastructure – a feat companies many times our size cannot match," said Keith Engelbert, CTO-Investor Relations, STI. "What started as a cost-saving IT project quickly blossomed into something much bigger as we realized the cloud could be a major business enabler for us."

As STI continues to diversify its business model, the company also chose EarthLink's Cloud Hosting to run its new SchoolWheels Direct program, a recently launched fee-based busing system direct to parents. SchoolWheels Direct runs in the cloud out of EarthLink's data centers, including the new STI application, SafeStop™, a mobile app for parents and school districts to securely monitor SchoolWheels vehicles while en route to and from school. Additional features include a custom Alert Notification System that can be used to communicate weather, traffic, emergency and other safety information in real-time.

Utilizing Cloud Workspace also provides STI with a tremendous advantage in meeting compliance requirements by eliminating the challenge of auditing multiple locations, because all applications are hosted in an EarthLink data center with SSAE 16 compliant process controls and infrastructure. With Cloud Workspace, STI avoids millions in IT costs, and allocates less than one percent of its revenue to IT operations, while the industry-wide average is 3.5 percent.

EarthLink Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Michael D. Toplisek said, "As a growing, publicly-traded company, STI took advantage of the cost-savings and convenience of the Cloud and how Cloud Workspace simplifies audits and IT operations. Cloud Workspace is also proving a key competitive differentiator for them, as STI's speed to integrate new clients and strategic acquisitions makes them an even more agile competitor. Clients often find that Cloud Workspace is not just an IT strategy, but a tremendously strategic business advantage."
