At Logicalis, we know it is critical that we invest in our own facilities and technical capabilities to continue to earn the trust and respect of both our valued clients and our business partners.
Farmington Hills, MI (Vocus/PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services, has opened a new and expanded Logicalis Operations Center in West Chester Township, OH, near Cincinnati. The new operations center reflects Logicalis’ continued growth and investment in cloud and managed services offerings.
“When you compare technology solution partners, it’s important to look at the investments those partners are making in their customers through their own technology and facilities,” says Terry Flood, Logicalis’ president and CEO. “At Logicalis, you can see our continual re-investment into the improvement and expansion of those systems which enable us to provide our clients the best managed services and cloud offerings the industry has to offer.”
The new Logicalis Operations Center building itself is both impressive and highly functional. As clients enter the building, they immediately see Logicalis’ 24x7 operation center, the heart of the company’s managed services and cloud offerings. The building includes a security-controlled waiting area with LCD panels on the walls displaying Logicalis news and information. The new operations center location includes everything Logicalis’ growing customer base needs to have in a campus-like experience, including business center rooms for visiting clients and two executive conference rooms, one of which is equipped with a state-of-the-art Cisco Telepresence multi-screen video conferencing system. A 30-seat demo and instruction facility is also available, designed to give Logicalis the ability to comfortably meet the growing demand for demonstrations and trainings on the company’s solutions and services. There is even an operations center “war room,” a security-controlled meeting room adjoining the operations center itself used for critical event collaboration and resolution strategies.
In addition to the outstanding technical and spacial qualities the Logicalis Operations Center has to offer, the building is strategically located within a short drive of both the Dayton and Cincinnati airports, and within a five-minute drive of the Logicalis co-location data center facility which houses the company’s Logicalis Enterprise Cloud. This new location is logistically ideal for Logicalis customers traveling to the facility, and allows for a single campus-like experience when working on solutions together with Logicalis’ IT engineers and experts.
