ALPHARETTA, Ga., Aug 06, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Safe Systems, recent winner of the BankNews Innovative Solutions Award, and national leader in compliance-centric IT support and hosted services exclusively to financial institutions, today announced the opening of its new Network Operations Center (NOC) in an 8,000-square-foot facility in Alpharetta, Ga.
Over the past year, Safe Systems has observed a significant increase in demand for outsourced and cloud solutions. Financial institutions are looking to host non-revenue driving bank functions to reduce costs and increase productivity. “We have seen managed services grow by a 19 percent revenue increase and a 24 percent sales increase over the previous year,” said Darren Bridges, president of Safe Systems. “To accommodate this continuing growth trend, we have taken proactive measures of increasing our staff by 25 percent and expanding the NOC to a second location to ensure exceptional IT support and further strengthen expertise and service delivery for financial institutions.”
The new NOC houses a team of network engineers who specialize in the unique platform configurations of financial institutions & banking applications. This facility provides support for all of the company’s managed, hosted and professional services to its nationwide client base, resulting in streamlined communication for quicker service and an enhanced client experience.
Bridges continued, “As an extension of our client’s IT departments, our team is positioned to provide the highest levels of service, support and regulatory oversight as the industry’s technology and regulatory needs expand. Financial institutions that choose to outsource services to a hosted provider gain a support system that can provide information and assistance as needed, on demand. Banks and credit unions no longer have a single point of failure, and can instead rely on a team of industry experts.”
