eGroup, a multi-year award-winning Managed Service Provider with the highest level of client-rated satisfaction, acts as an extension of the Genesis IT department, taking care of critical IT infrastructure, monitoring and management around the clock—enabling IT staff to focus on customers and business goals.
By proactively monitoring and maintaining Genesis systems, eGroup eliminates many technology problems. Should an issue occur, eGroup’s experienced team and automated platforms can troubleshoot and resolve them quickly and efficiently.
Unlike traditional outsourcing arrangements, eGroup offers a commonage solution, where the client retains complete control and ownership of their IT assets, as well as maintaining full visibility into the process and ongoing management of the company’s systems. We believe this is the ultimate competitive differentiator, enabling our clients to avoid vendor “lock-in”, while ensuring eGroup performs to the highest levels without leveraging a “captive customer” business model.
Additionally, the eGroup subscription model provides the best level of expense predictability over a consultative time and billing model.
Genesis engaged eGroup to provide services in support of Genesis’s existing team, so that members could accelerate the completion of defined project objectives without distraction.
It is the Genesis team’s goal to be able to leverage eGroup for support, monitoring, and management of core application servers along with accessing additional expertise for Tier-2 and Tier-3 skillsets, project implementation, and solutions design that enhance and increase the rollout and adoption of standardized IT solutions throughout the organization.
Genesis wants to ensure continuity of knowledge and efficient transition between any resources eGroup provides for Project and Support efforts. eGroup utilizes a team-based approach, with dedicated points of contact, to ensure that the overall mission and execution is consistent across all defined objectives. This team approach enables eGroup to supply Genesis with best-in-class operational management, combined with process driven delivery, in the delivery of critical services needed by the business, while also fulfilling the duration of the engagement with the wide variety of technical expertise required to achieve goals.
Specifically, eGroup provides access to onshore, certified industry experts for both escalation support and strategic project services to remediate pain points in existing systems, while successfully deploying new solutions to shrink the footprint and complexity of the current environment.
