According to Puneet Bakshi, a principal at Coremotive and a new employee of EVC, "Through EVC and its parent company, CTC, we now have access to a greater depth and breadth of services, new technical skill sets, a business development department, and a large corporate infrastructure.  Everything we do is for the benefit of our clients, and we are certain that this acquisition will allow us to do even more for the hospitals we serve around the nation."
