Companies’ success as individual firms paved way for alliance, which will better position uptimeLV, benefit clients when economy recovers

LAS VEGAS Local IT firms uptimeLV, Inc. and Radical Networks, Inc. (RNI) have joined forces to create one larger, stronger firm operating under the name, uptimeLV. The two firms officially became one on Nov. 2.

The economy has been difficult for businesses throughout the country, and, as a result, many businesses have significantly downsized or gone out of business. This is not the case for RNI and uptimeLV. Serving as two of the largest, most credible and successful IT companies in Southern Nevada, RNI and uptimeLV have made the deliberate business decision to combine their resources and position themselves to capture even more of the Las Vegas market as the economy continues to rebound.

“This alliance allows us to provide more value and diversity than ever before to our customers,” said Las Vegas native Dave Rounds, who will continue to serve as president of uptimeLV. “As a result, we will be stronger and in a better position to grow both now and in the future.”

The new, larger firm will operate out of uptimeLV’s current location, 6280 S. Valley View Blvd., Ste. 412, Las Vegas, NV 89118. Clients of both firms will not experience any change in rates, services or their primary contact.

UptimeLV was the first IT company in Nevada to be recognized by Microsoft as a Gold Certified Partner. In 2006 the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce named uptimeLV as “Innovative Business of the Year.”

For more than 12 years, RNI has been a “one stop IT shop” for business owners and IT managers in the Las Vegas area. The company’s technicians are all seasoned, qualified professionals with years of real world experience and maintain vendor certifications in Microsoft, Cisco, Symantec, Sonicwall and HP.

RNI President Nick Nichols, a 16-year Southern Nevada resident, will continue to be intimately involved with the organization’s growth, client support and product/service development efforts. Nichols will serve as new product and business development manager of uptimeLV.

“We look forward to extending our line of services and products as a byproduct of this joint effort,” Nichols said.

Established in 2001, uptimeLV, Inc. is a Las Vegas-based IT company that specializes in network and computer sales, installation, system design, consulting and maintenance. Over the last decade, uptimeLV has served more than 600 businesses and saved clients up to 30 percent annually on IT services. UptimeLV is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with Microsoft designated competencies in network solutions, advanced infrastructure solutions and security solutions.
