THE WOODLANDS, TX - October 16, 2008 - The epic software group, a leader in web development and multimedia production announced today a strategic business development partnership with ICTX-WaveMedia, the area's fastest growing fiber optic and Network Infrastructure provider.
Under the partnership, ICTX-WaveMedia will install over 1000 feet of fiber optic cable to epic's studio in The Woodlands, TX. This cable will allow epic to link directly to the ICTX-WaveMedia operations hub in Katy, Texas. At the network hub, ICTX-WaveMedia will also install a dedicated server for epic that connects directly to the backbone of the internet. epic in turn will provide ICTX with a variety of marketing services including web site development/management, on location video/photography, and multimedia production work. Both companies will also coordinate their business development activities to maximize market penetration.
"Our two companies are a perfect fit," says ICTX-WaveMedia President, Carl Merzi. "ICTX provides Structured Cabling, Infrastructure Design and Broadband Services. We currently operate a 650+ mile fiber optic network in Houston and the demand for installation, termination, testing and support services are experiencing tremendous growth. Our customers are also requesting web development and hosting services which we have not offered in the past. Combining our two distinct offerings creates efficiencies for our companies and comprehensive IT solutions for our customers."
epic software group President, Vic Cherubini, said: "For years we have relied on a variety of service providers to host the web sites we've developed. With this strategic partnership, we can offer our clients a 'one-stop-shop' for all their internet needs on a dedicated server we own. Building a custom web site, then delivering it from a high speed server helps to improve the speed of content delivery and makes the experience more pleasurable. Both epic and ICTX WaveMedia have been in business over 15 years, and provide services to a number of the largest companies in Houston. We have distinct but complementary products and services. With this partnership, our companies will benefit from each other's market base and joint business development efforts while providing a truly integrated solution to our clients."
