Datapipe Announces Aggressive First Quarter Growth

Hoboken, NJ - April 14, 2004 - Datapipe, an international provider of Managed Web Hosting Services, announced today that both sales and revenue for the first quarter grew more than 50% compared to the first quarter last year.

“The credit for our continued growth belongs to our employees,” said Robb Allen, CEO of Datapipe. “Their commitment to delivering the best support and service in the industry has allowed Datapipe to grow more than 3,200% over the last four years.”

The first quarter also marked the launch of Datapipe’s updated website with a more user-friendly, streamlined graphical design. The changes came about as a result of recent research into web hosting industry trends. This research revealed a marked lack of standards for managed services and a resulting confusion on the part of consumers and business customers.

“One of our main focuses has always been on providing our customers with confidence and reliability in the services we provide,” continued Allen. “But we also realize the challenge customers face in sifting through all of the information that is out there. Take, for example, the subject of managed services. Ask ten hosting companies about what services they include with ‘managed services’ and you will likely get ten different answers. What’s resulted is that the meaning has been lost.”

With the recent introduction of SureManagedSM services, Datapipe seeks to inform businesses about what they should expect from a managed hosting service. Easy to understand service descriptions are provided and businesses that do not want “Fully Managed” services have the option of choosing specific managed services they require, providing peace of mind that they are not paying for services they don’t need.
