OneNeck IT Services Corporation, a premier provider of hosting and application management services based in Scottsdale, Ariz., announced today the company will begin operating under a new name, OneNeck® IT Solutions, a TDS® Company.
President and CEO Phil LaForge said, “I’m thrilled about our new name, OneNeck IT Solutions. It unites all five of our hosted and managed service companies as one IT solutions master brand. This unification also solidifies our company as the next-generation provider that our customers are looking for to deliver tailored, end-to-end IT solutions.”
In addition to OneNeck IT Services, the companies unifying as OneNeck IT Solutions are: VISI Incorporated; TEAM Technologies, LLC; Vital Support Systems, L.L.C.; and MSN Communications, Inc. This group of companies was organized under TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC, which is formally changing its name to OneNeck IT Solutions LLC.
“Getting to one name was very important,” LaForge said. “We were already presenting ourselves to customers and executing our projects as one team. With a unified brand, it will be easier for customers to understand what we do and how we do it, while still delivering the high-touch service they expect.”
OneNeck IT Services was founded in 1997 and acquired by Telephone and Data Systems, Inc. in June 2011. With its new brand name, OneNeck IT Solutions, the company is part of a rapidly growing enterprise that employs nearly 650 people throughout the country. OneNeck IT Solutions specializes in the engineering and management of IT infrastructure, including cloud and hosting solutions, colocation services, managed services, ERP management, professional services and IT hardware sales. The company owns and operates four Tier 3 data centers in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin and manages two Tier 2 data centers in Arizona.
According to LaForge, the new name also unifies the brand to better reflect the company’s expanded capabilities and unified IT offerings. He says, “The single brand enables us to create a simpler structure that results in less confusion by customers and employees. Plus, it allows us to develop a consistent approach to facilitate future growth and expansion while delivering the IT solutions our customers need.”
