ManagedWay's Growth Accelerates as More Businesses Move to the Cloud

Continued network investment brings new capabilities, expanded capacity and additional team members

Troy, Michigan, January 20, 2019 - From humble beginnings just a decade ago, ManagedWay, a Troy-based telecommunications provider, has become a recognized industry leader providing dedicated internet, cloud computing and colocation services to a growing roster of clients in the United States, Canada and Europe.

"From start-ups to municipalities to Fortune 100 conglomerates, businesses now understand the significant cost and performance benefits of moving telecommunications and data center operations to professional, third-party operators," said Robert Sanders, founder and CEO of ManagedWay. "ManagedWay has made strategic investments to its network capabilities to ensure we're winning more than our fair share of them."

With some estimates suggesting that up to 90 percent of U.S. businesses will outsource the majority of data services to third party providers by 2022, ManagedWay hopes to continue its current trajectory along its three primary service lines: dedicated internet, cloud computing and colocation services.

Dedicated Internet:

In 2018, ManagedWay's national carrier network began offering high speed (up to 100Gbps+) dedicated internet services through its proprietary fiber optic network in Michigan and further interconnected to other premier carriers which extend that network globally.

During the year, the company expanded its intelligent route optimization platform by deploying award-winning software and through acquisition of state-of-the-art switch gear. Continuous uptime and low latency translate to a superior customer experience, accelerated compute clusters, high-quality video viewing and optimized response times on e-commerce sites. Fixed wireless internet services were also expanded with new towers added in SE Michigan.

Cloud Computing:

"Most businesses today understand that third party providers are better suited to handle the capital investment required to build and manage robust data centers," says Sanders. "We're able to dramatically reduce client costs while providing a much more sophisticated infrastructure than they'd be able to reasonably develop on their own," he said.

Sanders says that his recently opened 45,000 sq ft facility in Troy is already nearing capacity.  With  clients ranging from small start-ups to Fortune 100 multi-nationals, ManagedWay clients leverage world-class infrastructure without the worry or cost. They also benefit from affordable, dynamic and scalable technologies with full disaster recovery services from nodes in Detroit, Los Angeles, Nashville and Amsterdam.

Colocation services:

ManagedWay's carrier-neutral tier III data centers offer an engineered stronghold for client servers and are designed to give businesses room to grow.

The company's third party SOC 2 Type II compliance certification ensures that ManagedWay clients are able to meet their own demanding compliance needs, whether HIPPA, FTC, PC1, SEC, FMLA, ERISA or any others. Meanwhile, as a carrier-neutral site connected to at least 17 different national carriers, clients have the opportunity to connect with their preferred providers.

The Team:

ManagedWay's Support Shield program offers 24x7x365 technical professionals on-site to provide comprehensive, customizable support. The Company was pleased to add more than a dozen professionals in 2018 and looks to add an equal number in the coming year.

"We talk about our network, but it's really our people who make it all possible," said Sanders. "In fact, people have become our organizing principal. Our company is all about connecting people through technology."

ManagedWay has rolled out aggressive compensation and benefit packages to attract the talent they need to fuel growth. This means competitive pay, new 401K plans with 3 percent match, financial planning services, robust training and certifications, flexible scheduling, holiday bonuses, and revamped and upgraded health care packages.

"It's easy to say that 2018 was an exceptionally busy year, but in the fast-moving telecommunications world, they're all pretty busy. With continued collaboration, we expect to remain at the forefront of this dynamic industry. That's the only place to be if you're going to be successful," said Sanders.
