The Adler Planetarium in Chicago is the first and oldest Planetarium in the United States having opened on May 12, 1930 just prior to the Chicago World’s Fair Exposition in 1933 – The Century of Progress. SAGIN began working with the Adler Planetarium in 2013 managing their entire IT infrastructure and environment. In 2016 the Adler Planetarium recognized SAGIN’s $50,000 gift of services improving their infrastructure and IT environment. Including applications, servers, off-site date storage, email system conversion and a new phone system. Over this period the museum has seen record increases in attendance and an expanding base of patrons, which support the museum. It is also growing the number of children touched by science and being the benefactors of learning more about outer space.
SAGIN’s E3 program supports the efforts of organizations which share the values SAGIN supports in Equality, Education and the Environment. SAGIN not only reinvests a portion of its profits in these areas but also reinvests in clients which share these values in their mission.
SAGIN prides itself on partnering with our clients to improve operations and contribute our part to help organizations achieve their goals and mission faster. “We are so honored and proud that the Adler Planetarium has not only recognized the value of our contribution but that of the countless hours our people have spent behind the scenes and after hours so that the mission of space exploration goes on”, said Richard Sypniewski, CEO of SAGIN. In an email statement by the Adler Planetarium’s CEO, Michelle Larson, “Your team performed well and is extremely professional. Working with your organization has been a true partnership”.
We wish the Adler much continued success into the future and beyond.
