Success Stories

Sora takes IT off your plate.

Precision Planting

Precision Planting produces mechanical seed planting products.

“We’re focused on solving problems that help the American farmer be more productive. We want to be as efficient as we can be in accomplishing that goal. IT is not a core competency, nor do we feel we can efficiently invest in IT for it to become a core competency. Yet, it’s critical in that we can’t help farmers if we don’t have tools that make it simple. Jacob’s team has taken and run with that burden for us in a very cost-effective way.”

— Brad Arnold, commercial lead

“That’s been a huge help, having Jacob alongside with our critical projects. He doesn’t act like he’s a third party. It feels like he’s Precision Planting family. He’s in there with me, trying to figure out how we solve for this and how do we build out an IT, ecommerce solution that the business can grow with, not just today but in the future…. I can’t say it enough. They really truly are there 24/7 as issues come up overnight or the weekend, as we do implementations. They’re there, right there with you.

The key thing with Sora is their customer service. Sora has built a level of trust with us. I know that if I give Sora a project, they’re going to do it, and they’re going to do it the right way. Sora has been a great partner….”

— Keith Crow, finance lead

Prairie Spine and Pain Institute

Prairie Spine and Pain Institute specializes in the treatment of spine, neck, and back pain.

“If our equipment’s down, then we’re down, and that’s a problem for patients. Their continued service that we get from the folks over at Sora has been consistent…. The biggest value we get from Sora would probably, again, go back to access, where we know the individuals, they’re here on-site on a regular basis, so we have people who we can directly reach out to if we need something emergent…. If there’s something critical that we need action on right away, we have go-to people at Sora that we know personally that we can access.”

— Dr. Richard Kube, medical director and owner

Philippi Hagenbuch

Philippi Hagenbuch designs and sells off-highway equipment.

“We were looking for a company that really would partner with us, to get to know us as a company, and could react and support our IT needs, both at our manufacturing facilities as well as our office environment. They really become a part of your team. They get to know the people here, and understand how we conduct business… They’re proactively monitoring our systems, making sure that things are working as they should be.”

— Josh Swank, vice president of sales and marketing

360 Yield Center

“Sora Technologies has given us the confidence that our IT needs are being met, so that we can focus on business issues here at 360 Yield Center and other entities that we operate. Day to day, they take care of all our IT needs and allow us then to focus primarily on what we need to focus on to make us the best company we can be. They have a very servant attitude towards helping us to be successful. ”

— Tim Kaiser, CFO

— Kathy Getz, Human resources and finance

Dale Carnegie Training of Central IL

“I got to know Jake five or six years ago when he participated in one of our programs. He benefitted a good deal from the experience so we had a conversation about how we might help each other. We needed an IT person so Jake and I worked out an arrangement for his team to support our local office.

Sora has always been quick to respond to our needs. We are impressed with their desire to excel and to constantly improve their quality of service. You can’t go wrong with Sora’s commitment to serve you and your company.”

— Steve Grant, senior business development consultant

McD Marketing

McD Marketing is a full-service marketing firm specializing in advertising and interactive solutions.

“Our agency is highly reliant on technology. We need constant access to the internet and our server from remote locations. Working with SORA has been an enlightening experience. They are truly an outstanding IT provider and partner that is committed to keeping us up and running.

In addition, they are proactive about technology moves and security decisions. Jacob often reaches out to me personally to let me know about issues of concern or actions they have taken on our behalf. Everything always makes perfect sense and is stated in a way that all of us can understand. SORA rocks IT.”

— Randy McDaniels, President

Their people are well-trained. They know our building, they know our employees.”
