Some firms specialize in infrastructure (such as server and database software), and others specialize in applications (such as SharePoint and .Net development), but Keller Schroeder’s deep expertise includes both.  This adds strength to Keller Schroeder’s Microsoft practice, and is evidenced by the 100% score for “ability to meet your needs”.

“Across our areas of business we strive for solid, long term business partnerships with our clients,” says Keller Schroeder President Larry May, “and it is gratifying to see the tradition continue.” 


Annual Event Focuses on Area Child Care Agencies

It may have looked like the set from a western movie, but the fifth annual Client Appreciation Event on October 1st was actually an opportunity for Keller Schroeder to give back to the community while saying “thank you” to its clients.

This year’s “Wild, Wild West” theme brought out some unique costumes, but the most impressive sight was the more than 600 items donated by Keller Schroeder employee-owners and client attendees for Ark Crisis Child Care Center and St. Vincent’s Day Care.  “These two organizations are highly reputed in Evansville and highly accredited among their peers regionally and nationally,” said company President Larry May.  “Ark and St. Vincent’s fill vital roles in our community, and our Client Appreciation Event is a great opportunity to bring together a lot people to make an impact.”  Keller Schroeder also made a corporate donation of “heavy duty” tricycles for both organizations.

Several of Keller Schroeder’s trusted partners were participants and co-sponsors of the event, including NetApp, Cisco, LifeSize Video, Blue Coat, Infoprint, and Sitco.
