This certification and our membership in the MSPAlliance reinforce to our customers our commitment to providing the highest quality services.
Chico, CA (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
Mainstream Technologies, Inc. today reported that it has been successfully audited and certified under the MSPAlliance’s (MSPA) Unified Certification Standard for Cloud and Managed Service Providers (UCS).
"The UCS audit is a rigorous audit and certification process that benchmarks and verifies the quality of the company providing managed services,” said Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance CEO. "We are very proud to have Mainstream Technologies join this elite body of Cloud and Managed Service Providers.”
In an effort to address a gaping need for a global industry standard that transcends the boundaries of cloud and managed services, UCS is the first program of its kind, specifically designed and created to provide business consumers of cloud and managed services with the assurance that the service provider they hire meets or exceeds the highest principles of quality in areas such as financial stability, facilities, managed services practices, and customer satisfaction.
UCS certification is based on a wide range of criteria with which to benchmark Managed IT Solution Providers, thereby ensuring that they have met and exceed well-established standards of excellence and client care. Clients that select a company that is part of the UCS can also rest assured that their IT solution provider has met and exceeded the following standards:
Physical & Virtual Security
Business & Financial stability
Company has taken reasonable steps to assure that the client’s IT needs will be safely and professionally addressed
Company is under constant external review from the MSPAlliance and the IT profession to continually maintain and improve standards of care of excellence
“We applaud the MSPAlliance for once again taking the lead as an industry association and accrediting body, and are very pleased to have successfully completed the UCS Audit and to be the first company to do so,” said John Burgess, Mainstream president. “This certification and our membership in the MSPAlliance reinforce to our customers our commitment to providing the highest quality services.”

In addition, the MSPAlliance collects data on the practice of managed services on behalf of its members, to help them increase the value delivery of IT to the organizations they serve.
“When we selected Mainstream Technologies to be our primary IT Services Company eleven years ago, we knew they were the perfect fit to what we wanted. We were looking for a company that would care as much about our customers as we did,” said Gregory Holder of Compliance Networks. “Successfully completing this independent UCS certification proves to the world what we knew 11 years ago…this is a great company to do business with.
A 2010 recipient of The Arkansas Governor’s Quality Award and now the first company to successfully complete the UCS audit process, Mainstream Technologies, Inc. is an IT Services Provider specializing in Managed Services, Hosting, and Custom Software Development.
