A Great Year in Review
As the year is coming to a close, I can look back over the last 12 months and can see that it has been a great year for MegaPath. Back in September, we were again placed on the Inc. 5000, the magazine’s list of the fastest growing private companies in the US. MegaPath took position 1,146 on the list this year, making a showing for the third consecutive year.
Then, in November, we were placed on the 2009 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 (PDF), in position 364. Deloitte’s list ranks the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America based on percentage revenue growth over a five-year period.
Early in the summer of 2009, MegaPath was named to the VAR500 for the sixth consecutive year by Everything Channel, as they recognized we are one of North America’s top technology integrators. MegaPath’s Channel Partner Program includes many of the industry’s leading VARs and integrators who are certified to offer the company’s leading connectivity, security and VoIP services. On a related note, back in October Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Dan Foster was selected to the PHONE+ magazine and Channel Partners Conference & Expo joint 2009-2010 advisory board. And in November we announced the creation of its Channel Partner Advisory Council to foster communication between the company and our valued channel partners.
Just recently, MegaPath learned that we have received Cisco® Managed Services Master certification, building on the Cisco® Powered designation in Managed Connectivity we announced back in February. Achieving this designation required significant investment in our NOC and engineering team, with CCIE® and ITIL® professionals on staff, supporting our managed solutions at all phases: preparing, planning, designing, implementing, operating, and optimizing.
It was also a great year on the product front at MegaPath. Back in June, Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) named MegaPath’s Managed Security Services a recipient of a 2008 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award. Also in June, we announced we had added our 300,000th SSL user. In January we were pleased to learn our Duet™ voice and data service had received the 2008 Product of the Year award from INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine for the second time in a row. We also expanded our footprint of Ethernet services this year, and brought additional connectivity options online for our customers. We’ve been busy!
Well, looking back has been fun, but we’ve got our eye on the ball, and we’re focused on bringing your business the best voice, data and security solutions again next year. More than 20,000 business customers out there are expecting the most of us, and we are going to continue to deliver!
We wish you a Happy Holiday, and every success in 2010!
