AUSTIN, Texas, July 5, 2005 — Envision Utility Software Corporation is pleased to announce the opening of its new data center in San Marcos, Texas. The fully operational data center offers software application hosting to current and future clients. This expansion adds a third location to Envision’s existing offices in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Austin, Texas.
Construction for the data center began in February of 2005 and staff started moving in during the second week of May. “As the market for outsourcing continues to grow,” says Robert Burke, Envision’s data center Operations Manager, “we saw a strategic opportunity to offer additional services outside of our core functionality of software development, support and maintenance”.
Envision’s data center incorporates the infrastructure necessary to host its billing application, foCIS® or other third-party software applications. The data center is operated by professional staff that is responsible for managing all back-office functions. Other service offerings include bill processing, data warehousing, report generation and call center services through a strategic alliance with Lone Star Solutions, a division of Pedernales Electric Cooperative.
San Marcos is located between San Antonio and Austin. The new data center is within 60 miles of Envision’s administrative offices in Austin, TX. Envision is headquartered in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
