Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 19, 2008 -–
VIA Networks USA (vianetworks.net), a global managed services provider, today announced it has been selected by EDG, Inc. (http://www.edg.net) to support their Microsoft Sharepoint environment. VIA Networks will provide EDG with managed hosting for the firm’s Microsoft SharePoint environment that will act as a knowledge and project management system for its 450 global consultants.
Managed SharePoint will enable EDG’s teams to securely access information from remote locations around the world, including critical project documentation. The solution will also serve as a foundation for improving the organization’s knowledge management system, while facilitating communication and collaboration among the consultant team members. By choosing VIA Networks to support their SharePoint environment, EDG can focus attention on client projects and not on system maintenance.
“We made a great decision selecting VIA Networks as our managed services partner,” said Kelly Holstorm, EDG Information Manager. “The VIA Networks team quickly demonstrated superior technical knowledge and the necessary resources required to handle our fast-paced and quickly-growing SharePoint business. The VIA Networks hosting solution is a fully-managed, dedicated environment that not only provides us with improved operational efficiency, but also enabled us to reduce IT costs.”
