The ASCII Group Expands Member Collaboration with New Community Platform

The new platform will help foster more partnerships and sharing of best practices within the ASCII MSP community.

The ASCII Group, a membership-based community of independent North American MSPs, MSSPs and Solution Providers, is pleased to announce the official launch of its updated member community platform ASCII-Link. The new platform provides increased engagement and opportunities for ASCII members to directly connect.

Since its inception in 2008, ASCII-Link has been a top exclusive benefit with ASCII members. ASCII built one of the largest IT community forums, where members communicate freely with fellow IT business owners to jointly solve technical issues, provide vendor recommendations, give input on revenue opportunities and more. Vendors are not provided access to ASCII-Link and ASCII does not moderate posts.

With messages exceeding over 3,000 posts per month, the IT community looked beyond its traditional list-serv for a modern, best-in-class tool. Today ASCII’s platform provides users with a more enhanced experience that includes a member directory, custom profiles, sub-groups and further personalization of the community.

“The new platform will help foster more partnerships and sharing of best practices within the ASCII MSP community. ASCII continually looks at ways to help MSPs increase their ability to work together, and this is another step in raising the bar in driving more interaction amongst our members across North America,” said Jerry Koutavas, President, The ASCII Group.

“ASCII is continually expanding on ways to help my business form partnerships and build upon opportunities with other like-minded MSPs in the group. The new enhancements to ASCII-Link provide another way to connect and engage with other MSP members in the community,” said Stephen Monk, Noverus Innovations, and member of The ASCII Group.

With the addition of the new system, ASCII users can share and work collaboratively on projects with others, regardless of where members are located. The group also has a community mobile app for easy access.
