Winxnet Achieves Record Growth In 2012

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Winxnet, an Information Technology provider that supports IT strategy and services needs of small and mid-sized businesses, Wednesday announced record growth in revenue (35 percent) and headcount (43 percent) for the 2012 fiscal year.  Winxnet has a regional headquarters in Chattanooga.

“Demand for our managed IT and outsourcing services has never been greater”, said Winxnet CEO Chris Claudio.  “Our customers are seeing tremendous value in our solutions, and we continue to innovate and transform the way IT is delivered and managed.  In addition to the cost savings and improved service that customers realize by working with Winxnet, our delivery model also provides the strategic direction that many organizations need to align their IT infrastructure and initiatives with core business strategies.  Through the intelligent use of technology, our customers are better positioned to grow both their top and bottom line. “ 

Winxnet’s other solutions – Application Development and SharePoint services – also saw growth.  As a result, Winxnet continues to invest in bringing on board technology experts with experience addressing the challenges customers are facing, officials said.  In 2012, Winxnet added professionals to lead the Application Development, CIO and Healthcare IT teams.  Other additions included business process consulting experts and healthcare technology consultants with expertise in attestation for Meaningful Use, EMR implementation and workflows, and the healthcare technology needs of practices and hospitals.

Last year brought a record number of new customers and the four largest contracts ever for Winxnet, including relationships with the federal government and some of Maine’s largest prestigious healthcare organizations. 

Business growth and momentum drove Winxnet to earlier this month relocate its Portland, Me. corporate headquarters to a nearby location with double the square footage.  This latest expansion follows the 2012 opening of an office in Boston, Ma.

The proximity of Winxnet’s Boston office to Microsoft’s Cambridge campus also supported the deepening of the company’s relationship with Microsoft, officials said.   Already the only Microsoft Managed Partner in Northern New England, in January Winxnet became one of three fully-qualified Microsoft Experience Center delivery partners in the northeast.  

In addition to regional accolades received from Microsoft in 2012, Winxnet earned recognition on a number of other fronts.  The company was named to Inc. Magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000 list, which recognizes the fastest growing private companies in the United States.   Winxnet was also named to the 2012 Best Places to Work in Maine, ranking 11th of the 31 small and mid-sized companies that were recognized for "establishing and consistently fostering outstanding workplace environments." 

“We continue to establish ourselves as a trusted provider of outsourced and project-based IT services,” said Mr. Claudio. “The depth of our expertise, quality of our services, and our proven ability to positively impact our customers’ businesses set us apart from the competition and promise to foster even greater growth for Winxnet in 2013.”

Memorial Auditorium Flag Disgrace

How can it be that Memorial Auditorium, which was built to honor soldiers and sailors, displays our country’s flag in such a disgraceful manner?  Out of six poles on the front of the building only two battered flags remain.  Additionally, two old banners are attached to the wall that have long ago faded and look like they’ve seen better days. This is not acceptable ... (click for more)

As we set the charcoal, ice the drinks and prepare for Memorial Day, the first thing on my mind is to ask any golfers within my reach to consider buying and playing with Ping-brand golf clubs.
