Technology is the easy part.
We believe when you build on smart people, creative thinking and sound logic, a solution always comes to the surface. We’re the folks with both the know-how and gumption to solve your complex business issues through the right use of technology.
We take complex business issues and solve them with the right use of technology.
When we say the “right technology,” we know what we’re talking about. We think that technology on its own will never change anything and that the coolest, newest technology isn’t always the best way to solve your problems.
How We Simplify the Complex
When technology and purpose meet, something beautiful happens. Solutions become less about features and much more about benefits. They become — dare we say — simple.
Too often in this industry, people rely on technology for the sake of technology. Case in point: Someone comes into your company, says you need to buy Something 2.0 or upgrade to version 7 of Whatever and that this shiny box full of technology gadgets will be the answer to all your problems.
Even if that worked for the time being, what’s the plan for next year? Or the year after that?
At Bedroc we know from experience that it’s not a question of more or less technology. Rather, it’s about the right people with the experience, skill and logic who find out how to get to the root of your complex business issues and bring the right solution to the surface — a solution that’s part of an ongoing plan for the future. And we’re all about making the process simple so that you can get back to doing what you do best.
So, What’s in it for you? Great question. When technology is applied in the appropriate way, the results are outstanding: you reduce risk, optimize, and create value (and yes, that forms a handy acronym, ROC, which, you have to admit, is kind of cool). We know results are the bottom line, so it’s what we use as our foundation (insert: “solid as a rock” joke here).
How do we do this? Well, if we had to tell you in an elevator we’d say this quippy line:
We have the desire to listen, the interest to engage, the knowledge to assess and the expertise to act.
You put this on rinse and repeat, and you’re looking at a pretty great relationship. Seriously, we’re in it with you for the long haul. We’re committed to understanding the depth of what you do and what obstacles you face so we can find the unique technical solutions that solve your complex issues.

Step 1. ALIGN
It all starts with listening and asking the right questions that get to the heart and vision of your business strategy. We want to see your vision and end goal succeed, and understanding your strategy will allow us to give you answers in alignment with your ultimate purpose.
Step 2. ANALYZE
We do our research by analyzing the market, objectives, pain points and timeline and present back to you a very detailed roadmap of how to infuse the right Bedroc technology to meet your goals. We take guesswork out of the project scope with a clear and actionable plan.
Step 3. ARCHITECT
As Solutions Architects, we design a technology blueprint aimed at aligning the vision and goals while limiting technology distractions. We assign the team and obtain the tools necessary to put the plans into action for seamless execution.
Step 4. ACHIEVE
Test, Test and then Retest. After all, good technology should be expected, but we are much more interested in the benefits than the features. Seamless integration is the foundation of your Bedroc service.
Step 5. ADAPT
The final step is our nod that technology never stays still for long. This is why we believe in measuring and adapting as your business evolves. Your Bedroc solutions will always be purpose-built, laser focused, functional and built for the long haul. But we also want them to have agility and flexibility so that when a new challenge arises, you can take them in stride with a minimal amount of work.
A Little Dirt on Bedroc
Since founding, we have quadrupled in size and were named as one of the best performing and most promising technology companies of its kind in the U.S. and Canada. Not bad, eh?
Technology is like putty in our capable hands.
And not silly putty, smart putty.
Putty that helps you do what you do better.
IN THE BEGINNING. The Bedroc tale begins with a common plight: short-sighted, impersonal, complicated technology solutions. What started as a vision to solve these business problems through the right application of technology, turned into the Bedroc you see today. Based in Nashville, where relationships are foundational to commerce, Bedroc aims to deliver personalized, simple, straightforward technology solutions.
TODAY. Our amazing team is made up of more than 30 diverse personalities with deep industry experience ranging from healthcare and finance to telecommunications; from fortune 500 businesses to start-ups. We are business leaders, engineers, technology officers, entrepreneurs, designers, and strategists who take their expertise in systems design, application networking, data center architecture, and network engineering and use it to create solutions that are purpose-built, laser-focused, and highly functional. So that technology works for you, not against you.
We don’t care as much about the newest, latest, or shiniest (although we absolutely have knowledge of it) as much as we care about discovering what it is that will work for you specifically. Simply put: we take your complex business issues and solve them with the application of technology. And we have a heck of a good time doing it.
President & CEO +
You can’t spell “quitter” with the letters c-h-a-s-e. When you consider Chase Wilkinson’s can-do attitude, fierce loyalty, and detail-oriented mind, it’s easy, to see why he is unfamiliar with the word “can’t.” Chase is the President and CEO of Bedroc and oversees all strategy and direction. He brings over 18 years of experience in management, engineering, and solution delivery to the proverbial Bedroc table.
The Bedroc team calls Chase the “realists’ realist” and loves him for his unique combination of humility and decisiveness. Chase is a father of three and husband to one and is described by those who know him best as valuing “family always first.”
Executive Vice President +
When you describe the ideal client advocate, you would be talking about Jud. He sets the bar for taking care of Bedroc’s clients. Jud is an Executive Vice President at Bedroc and helps drive our can-do culture.
Jud was the fourth employee at Bedroc. He has been a consistent influence in the development of our culture and strategy. Jud is a husband and father of two.
Vice President, Technology +
You know that guy who refuses to lose at anything and is somehow a master of a million subjects? Then you know Todd Plambeck. Todd brings excellence to his department through his determination, expertise (subjects include data center architectures, routing, switching, network protocols, application networking, optimization, load balancing and distribution) and 16 years of previous experience working on data center networking, network engineering and infrastructure.
At Bedroc he is referred to as the “Mouth” and is appreciated for his sharp commentary on bad company names. When he’s not kicking butt and taking names on all things technology, he’s entering cycling races and triathlons at the last minute and mercilessly embarrassing all other participants.
Director of Professional Services +
As we continue to build our world-class engineering team, Mike’s role as Director of Professional Services has been instrumental. Mike has a very diverse background of management, consulting and engineering. His areas of engineering expertise include storage, virtualization technologies, and Microsoft Server solutions.
Mike’s key strengths are facilitating solutions to meet client requirements and setting direction for our engineering team. Mike is a husband and father of two.

How We’re Doing
Although we like to think our work speaks for itself, our clients also do a great job.
Bedroc is not your average VAR or reseller. They are a strong strategic partner who are interested in building a long-term relationship based on trust and execution, not just a hardware sale or quick installation. In my experience, they have always gone above and beyond in service delivery and always give you more than you expect. Their entire staff from business development, engineering to back office support are second to none. I’d highly recommend Bedroc to anyone interested in a building a successful partnership for IT delivery.”
We wanted to find a cost-effective hosting solution with fast, responsive support from a vendor who understood our immediate and long-term big-picture goals. Bedroc was consistent, informative and patient throughout the whole process, which we greatly appreciated. We would definitely recommend Bedroc as a vendor to other companies within the community.”
I challenged Bedroc to bring in both email archiving and disaster recovery solutions. Bedroc got me set up quickly. They implemented an archiving solution that reduced our overall corporate disk consumption by about 70%, while also improving client-side performance. I’ll also now sleep better knowing they have my back on DR. Bedroc and the GreenCloud team forged a solution that is both user friendly and rock solid. Frankly, I don’t think that much about it because it’s just that dependable. With my crazy schedule, I know Bedroc is on my side and working toward the same goal I am. It’s hard to put a price on that.”

In Remembrance of the “Good Old Days”
Do you remember how much less complicated IT used to be? Don’t get me wrong, being in IT has always been challenging. There’s always been enormous pressure on IT from the business, mostly because there has been this pervasive struggle to leverage IT to create an advantage against competition. Therefore, in lieu of strategic value, IT has sometimes been relegated to the category of “cost center”. Some of you may even be in IT departments that report up to the Chief Financial Officer…a true sign of IT as a Cost Center (ITaaCC?) status.

Companies can reduce the risk from the type of cyberattack that took out major websites on Friday by using multiple vendors for the critical Internet service known as a domain name service, or DNS, companies and security experts said on Sunday.
“We have advocated for years for redundancy in your infrastructure,” said Kyle York, chief strategy officer for Dyn, the New Hampshire DNS provider that was attacked on Friday. “I don’t think you can ever be safe enough or redundant enough.”
Hackers unleashed a complex attack on the Internet through common devices like webcams and digital recorders and cut access to some of the world’s best-known websites on Friday, a stunning breach of global Internet stability.

On Friday, October 21, a massive cyberattack affected many users of popular websites like Twitter, Netflix, Etsy, Spotify and Airbnb, among others. Dyn, a company that manages website domains and routes internet traffic, experienced two distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on its DNS servers, beginning at 7am on Friday. A DDoS attack is an attempt to flood a website with so much traffic that it collapses under the load. Think the volume of a fire hydrant rushing through a garden hose.

There are only 18 days left until (hopefully) everyone heads to their neighborhood polling locations to vote for the next U.S. President, a few Senators, their U.S. Representatives and a slew of state and local offices. A large majority of us will vote the old-fashioned way, with some version of a paper ballot, either with a pen checking boxes or a machine punching holes. A handful will vote with a voting computer that will also produce a verifiable paper receipt. Fewer people still will use voting computers with no paper trail.
