Organization Name: Solix, Inc.
Mission: Solix is committed to helping customers deliver services that improve people’s lives. Supporting this mission is our determination to be the best choice in the market for ensuring the right services are delivered to the right people in the right way.
What prompted your organization to become involved with the problem of digital access?
Our company has played a critical role over the years in providing services to programs similar toConnect2Compete that are designed to help people and institutions that do not have adequate resources receive support, whether they are schools, libraries, low-income residents, or seniors. Solix’s interest in the efforts to lessen the “digital divide” was natural; we felt we could help this program achieve success like so many others with which we’ve partnered. Our people not only have the skills and experience to support this effort but enjoy the role they play in helping others receive needed services.
Why do you think digital access is important?
We’ve been involved with and on the front lines of numerous programs over the years, so we have personally witnessed what the success of these programs means for recipients. Digital access is similar to energy assistance, affordable phone access, and technology support for medical providers in remote locations—it’s a service that is no longer a luxury but a necessity to either help people succeed or have services that provide security or basic needs.
