Mount Arlington, NJ — November 17, 2011 — Exigent Technologies, a New Jersey Managed IT services company, today announced it has been selected as the “Official IT Services Provider forCarlo’s Bakery.”

Carlo’s Bakery is a famous family-owned and operated bakery that started out in Hoboken, NJ, and recently expanded into a 30,000 square foot, state-of-the art location at “Lackawanna Center” in Jersey City, NJ. For more than 100 years the bakery used pen and paper to run the operations, but with its explosive growth and national success, the need to introduce technology into the business to help build and manage the Valastro empire became a priority.

“We were definitely ‘old school’ with the day-to-day back-office operations,” says Bartolo Jr. “Buddy” Valastro, Carlo’s Bakery master baker and national reality show celebrity. “But that’s all about to change thanks to the expertise of the Exigent Technologies team.”

As part of the new engagement with Exigent Technologies, Carlo’s Bakery is undergoing a complete technology makeover at both locations. This includes a state-of-the-art virtualized network infrastructure equipped with PCs, Macs, laptops, printers, security software, servers, and a storage area network (SAN).

To keep the Valastro family’s focus on what they do best, Carlo’s Bakery is leveraging Exigent’s fixed-fee ASSURANCE™ managed IT service plans and PREVENT™ managed backup and disaster recovery for small business. These comprehensive, outsourced IT services include 24/7 remote monitoring and management of Carlo’s Bakery’s entire IT infrastructure, as well as business continuity services that ensure that all data is safe, secure and readily recoverable in case of an emergency or natural disaster.

“Investing in IT and selecting a local IT service provider wasn’t a decision we took lightly,” said Leo Minervini, vice president, technology, Carlo’s Bakery. “Exigent Technologies earned our business every step of the way. From the very first call, the team at Exigent Technologies was clearly a cut above the rest and possessed the genuine enthusiasm, values and proven technology expertise we were looking for in an IT services provider.”

With offices in New Jersey and New York City, Exigent Technologies has earned a long-standing reputation for providing local small businesses with the day-to-day outsourced IT services and support required to manage and grow their organizations with greater efficiency and profit potential.

“For nearly 15 years, Exigent Technologies has helped local businesses use technology to generate even greater value in the eyes of their customers and build a stronger, more productive operation,” said Daniel Haurey, president of Exigent Technologies. “We’re honored to be selected as Carlo’s Bakery’s IT service provider of choice and look forward to unveiling its new tech-savvy operations in the weeks ahead.”
