(The Hosting News) – i.t.NOW, a Utah IT support and managed services company, recently concluded its most successful year since the company’s creation in 2005. i.t.NOW hired seven new employees and added 800 machines to its management services, bringing the 2010 total to 2,300 machines, a growth of more than 60 percent since 2009.
“2010 was an excellent year for us. Even in a down economy, we were able to continue growing our business, allowing us to hire employees for all aspects of the business: Sales, operations, technical support and office management, just to name a few,” said i.t.NOW Founder and CEO Phil Robinson.
Robinson added, “2011 will be even better. With cloud computing being integrated into all aspects of Utah IT solutions, we’re preparing to offer several cloud-based solutions, which would save our clients money and allow them to run any application on just about any device. We also recently upgraded our partnership with DELL from premier to certified. This means we can pass greater savings on to our clients, especially with hardware and storage solutions.”
i.t.NOW was also awarded a MountainWest Capital Network Utah 100 Award, which highlights the 100 fastest growing companies in Utah. The Utah 100 is determined by the percentage of revenue increases from 2005 through 2009.
“In addition to experiencing growth throughout the year, i.t.NOW also gave back to the local community. 2010 was such a great year for us that we wanted to pass on our good fortune to those in need,” said Robinson.
In December 2010, i.t.NOW helped local non-profit Karing for Utah’s Kids raise money for multiple children’s charities and the Sub for Santa Program with the Saturday with Santa charity event. The event, which was free to the public, sold handmade blankets and bears to raise funds. One hundred percent of the sales benefited the Foundation for Children & Youth with Diabetes, Bikers Against Child Abuse, and Trauma Awareness and Treatment. Funds also supported five families in need through the Sub for Santa program.
“The Saturday with Santa event was the best we’ve seen. We made 175 percent more in sales than 2009. I had 30 volunteers helping with the event, including those from i.t.NOW, and I needed all of them,” said Karing for Utah Kids Founder Butch Jentzsch.
