Inflow Asserts Industry Leading Position


Denver, CO -- Today, Inflow Inc., a leading provider of managed web application hosting and outsourced IT services, asserted its industry leading position in the marketplace and released details of continued growth.

Industry Leading Position:
Inflow was established in 1997 and has secured an industry leading position, with:

  • More than 750 customers
  • 141 new customers signed in 2003, including International Dairy Queen, Cisco Learning Institute (CLI), the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), and Rubio’s
  • 13 Internet data centers (IDCs) located in 12 second-tier cities across the U.S.
  • ISO 9001:2000 certification of core service delivery processes

Inflow specializes in managed IT outsourcing solutions within its three primary lines of business: Application Management and Hosting, Business Continuance and Disaster Recovery, and Enterprise Datacenter Management (EDM).

Customer Demand Driving Growth
During the first two quarters of 2003, Inflow has experienced a significant increase in sales activity. During the six-month period, Inflow booked sales to 141 new customers, an 18% increase over the prior six-month period. Inflow said the total revenue dollar value of the 141 new customer contracts was approximately $10.2 million, an increase of 40% over the value of contracts signed in the second half of 2002. To capitalize on the current demand in its markets, Inflow also announced it is currently seeking to double the size of its existing sales force during the second half of 2003.

“Companies are focusing more on their core competencies and finding that significantly more cost savings can be achieved through outsourcing data center and managed services functions,” said Art Zeile, chief executive officer for Inflow. “As a result, Inflow has acquired a steadily increasing customer base and leading position in our industry.”

To meet increasing demand for services from these types of enterprises, Inflow is continuing to invest in facility expansion, including commencing a project to increase the size of its existing Nashville IDC by approximately 70%. In addition, Inflow is seeking new opportunities to acquire additional data center space in certain of its current markets and begin expansion into new second-tier markets through acquisition.

Evidence of Inflow’s growth is supported in the May 12, 2003 Business Week article: “The E-Biz Surprise.” In the article, the magazine profiled the top 11 healthy e-commerce businesses operating today -- three of which are current Inflow customers.
