NetGain Technologies Opens Chattanooga Office

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

NetGain Technologies has expanded its operations into Chattanooga, offering a broad array of voice and data technologies, engineering services and managed services to area businesses.

On Wednesday, NetGain Technologies will host an open house at its new, fully remodeled facilities at 1300 Premier Dr., Suite 100. A 3 p.m. ribbon cutting is being coordinated by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce.

Members of the NetGain Technologies team will be on hand to greet customers, conduct tours and answer questions.

Founded in August 1984 in Lexington, Ky., NetGain Technologies is one of the largest technology providers in the region, with locations extending from Kentucky to Arkansas. The Chattanooga market represents a natural progression in the firm’s continued geographic growth, officials said.

Chattanooga also exemplifies NetGain Technologies’ business focus. Throughout its history, the firm has provided support for small to midsize businesses in smaller cities — organizations that are often overlooked by other large technology providers. According to NetGain Technologies CEO Mark Jacobson, there is a need within the Chattanooga business community for the kind of high-quality IT solutions and services NetGain Technologies offers.

“Chattanooga is a smaller market, with a number of businesses that have less than 1,000 employees. That is exactly the type of market we serve,” said Mr. Jacobson. “A lot of businesses in smaller cities are looking for a solid partner that has the right policies, procedures and expertise to help them maximize the value of technology. They’re looking for a company that has substantial depth and breadth of resources. They’re looking for a partner of our caliber to help them succeed.

“We feel confident that our core value proposition will resonate in this market. Unlike organizations that attempt to serve a market utilizing one or two sales people working from home, we are committing the full range of our technical, professional and operational services to the Chattanooga area.”

NetGain Technologies is also able to serve clients nationwide thanks to investments in its network operations center and its Technology OneSource managed services program. NetGain Technologies also partners with a $30 billion national alliance that enables it to dispatch engineers as needed in other parts of the U.S.

“Strategies like these serve our clients’ needs while keeping our prices competitive,” said Mr. Jacobson. “We invite businesses in the Chattanooga area to take a look at what NetGain Technologies has to offer.”
