ASCII-Link Forum Shares Revenue Opportunities, Partnerships and Technical Information

Bethesda, Maryland – September 10, 2013 — The ASCII Group, a membership-based community of independent MSPs, VARs and Solution Providers, today announced that its ASCII-Link forum has surpassed 200,000 global posts and over 900 active users since its launch in 2008. 

ASCII has built one of the largest IT community forums, whereby members communicate freely via listserv with fellow colleagues on a daily basis to jointly solve technical issues, provide vendor recommendations, give input on revenue opportunities and more.  The ASCII-Link forum allows members to share ideas, create partnerships and review new products and programs.  Vendors are not provided access to ASCII-Link, and ASCII does not moderate posts.

“ASCII-Link has become an important resource for my day-to-day business operations,” said Raffi Jamgotchian, President and CTO of Triada Networks.  “The invaluable information I have obtained from ASCII members across the country has allowed me to respond to clients faster, while feeling confident that I have provided the best solution available.  Through ASCII-Link I not only belong to a network of peers, but also of valued friends.”

“We started ASCII-Link because we wanted to create a tool that would empower our members to take advantage of the vast collective brainpower of our community,” said Doug Young, COO at The ASCII Group, Inc.  “It is an invaluable source of knowledge, and we are thrilled that more than 900 members have turned to the forum to gain access and insight to help run their businesses.” 

ASCII-Link is showing rampant growth in all areas and a strong increase in monthly activities (an average of 2,800 posts per month), resulting in more engaged users who are creating and viewing more posts.
