(Gawkwire) – Unprecedented growth in the market for cloud-based SharePoint hosting has allowed AIS Network to double in size over the last two years, giving the hosting pioneer a lot to celebrate as it marks its 19th anniversary this month.
The privately held AISN is a rapidly growing leader in enterprise-class hosting solutions for Microsoft SharePoint and SharePoint for Internet Sites as well as other mission-critical applications.
“We are extremely proud of AISN’s steady growth over the past 19 years and our strong position in the SharePoint hosting and cloud computing industries today. And naturally, we are grateful to our clients, partners, employees and everyone who has been a part of AISN’s 19-year history," said CEO Jay Atkinson, who assumed leadership of the Chicago-headquartered company two years ago and set it on a path for rapid growth. Soon after, AISN overhauled its marketing efforts, opened an East Coast office in northern Virginia, cultivated successful partnerships with leading applications developers and SharePoint consultants, and began offering clients cloud computing and virtualization technologies.
“This month, we mark nearly two decades. What we are most proud of is the service we provide to our clients, giving us extremely low customer churn rate. We know that once we have the customer, we will delight them and keep them for the long run. Many of our customers have been with us for over a decade, including many large SharePoint hosting clients,” said AISN Chairman Kurt Baumann, who recruited the company’s stellar advisory board of renowned technologists.
“As we move toward our third decade, it remains our mission today to design and build the leading, custom, cloud-based hosting solutions on the market.”
AISN hosting clients are organizations of all sizes and varying industries, ranging from governments and nonprofits to startups and publicly traded companies. Companies with vast amounts of data and large user populations, particularly those in the highly regulated health care and financial services industries, rely on AISN to host their most sensitive data, applications and Web sites in a fully compliant environment.
Noting the growth of Microsoft SharePoint and the strong demand for cloud-based SharePoint hosting solutions, Atkinson said, “We live in a time in which the Internet has enabled a level of collaboration never before possible. SharePoint and the cloud have ushered in a new frontier in collaboration, and we’re excited to be part of it. AISN’s future is bright as we progress into the decade ahead.”
