Mount Arlington, N.J. and New York, N.Y. — December 15, 2015 — Adding to a record year of success, Exigent Technologies today announced it is has been named the 2015 Vendor of the Year by Newark, N.J.-based BITS, a best-in-class telecommunications services provider focused exclusively on community banks. BITS’ CEO Jerald Murphy and Director of Data Center Operations Tom Pinou will present the award to Exigent President Daniel Haurey and his staff in a special ceremony at Exigent’s Mount Arlington, N.J. offices on December 16.

BITS, now in its tenth year, selected Exigent for the annual honor on the basis of the IT service provider’s outstanding dedication to the company’s growth and success. Since 2012, Exigent has delivered a wide range of IT services to the telecommunications innovator including corporate network support, managed IT services, help desk services, Office 365 support, IT purchasing and procurement, staff augmentation and IT project execution.

“From the beginning, Exigent quickly became integral to our success, serving multiple BITS offices as a trusted partner that never fails to go the extra mile to ensure we achieve our goals,” said Murphy. “Exigent has helped us build and scale our infrastructure offerings, as well as effectively manage our end user computing operations to keep our business running at peak performance 24/7. For their phenomenal work ethic and dedication to our growth, we are proud and delighted to publicly recognize Exigent as our 2015 Vendor of the Year.”

In addition to offices in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, BITS also operates two offsite data centers and offers a complete platform of next-generation telecommunications services to simplify banks’ technical, operational and regulatory requirements. As demand for its services has risen across the mid-Atlantic region, BITS has experienced fast-paced growth in the community bank sector.

“Community banks need all the security, networking and overall computing expertise that larger banks do, and that’s why they rely on BITS,” said Haurey. “The BITS organization has successfully addressed the specific needs of community banks in a big way, and it’s gratifying to see their business take off as we’ve worked in lock step together these past four years. We’re honored to support that growth with a full range of IT services, and thank them for recognizing the value and partnership that Exigent brings to their business.”

According to Pinou, outsourcing BITS’ end user IT operations needs to Exigent has allowed the company to focus on better serving its community bank customers and growing its business. “Getting bogged down in the details of scaling and managing our own end user IT environment didn’t make sense as we faced rapid growth,” Pinou said. “Exigent’s contributions to our business—from their expert approach to IT services, to their integrity and full scope of capabilities—has made all the difference. We congratulate them on a job well done and look forward to many more years of working together.”

Last month Exigent announced it expanded its customer software development services to deliver greater business value to small and midsize businesses (SMBs) in New Jersey and New York. In addition, earlier this year, it achieved a Microsoft Silver Midmarket competency, while also being named to the eighth annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition, a distinguished list and report identifying the world’s top 501 managed IT service providers.

In February 2015, Exigent acquired Information Architects, a Morris County, New Jersey-based IT services company specializing in systems integration, core platform technologies, managed services and virtualization. Since then, the New Jersey IT services leader has experienced strong double-digit growth and increased demand from local SMBs for cloud-based services, custom software development and systems integration expertise.
