NEW YORK, December 16, 2014 – Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), announced today that it has made a significant investment in the Logicalis Operations Center in West Chester Township, OH, near Cincinnati.  The Logicalis Operations Center is the heart of the company’s managed services and cloud offerings.  The recent investment adds square footage to the facility and includes the addition of a new Customer Briefing Center, a new Demo Showcase, and expands the infrastructure supporting client operations.

“Logicalis is investing heavily in the resources that will help our customers experience the cloud and managed services solutions they are considering before they make a buying decision or commit to a long-term relationship,” says Mike Martin, Senior Vice President, Solutions and Services, Logicalis US. “We want to provide our customers with the highest degree of confidence in both Logicalis and the solutions we are designing for their specific needs, and we know that visiting the Logicalis Operations Center, seeing our solutions in action and talking with our experts in person, will give them exactly that.”

Customer Briefing Center

The Logicalis Customer Briefing Center will be used for one-on-one in-depth executive meetings with clients as well as multi-customer solution briefings.  Through the Customer Briefing Center, clients will have a convenient mid-country venue where they can attend expert presentations, meet with Logicalis solution architects, and talk with other customers who have invested in similar solutions. Briefings will include cloud and managed services offerings, converged infrastructure solutions, and related vendor products.
