AISG Takes Owners Name, Now Known as Equinox


AISG Takes Owners Name, Now Known as Equinox

By Doug Barney

AISG, an MSP and cloud provider, was already a subsidiary of Equinox Five, so it probably didn’t take all that much thinking to change its name to Equinox Communications. The company hopes to create a new brand that speaks to its strength in the cloud and services.

“Rebranding as Equinox Communications is an opportunity for us to complement our continued growth and expansion as an organization, plus introduce a stronger brand identity which is more descriptive of our mission, products and services,” said President & CEO, Scott Raymer. “We are known as a top service provider of multiple communication services and Equinox Communications aligns that messaging with corporate strategy. We see opportunities in new markets and industries and look forward to expanding our product and services portfolio to existing and new customers as Equinox Communications.”

The Rise of Equinox

The parent company, Equinox Five, was founded by Raymer, a Marine who served after 9/11, and the company is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. Raymer, who served in Afghanistan, received the distinguished combat ribbon and got two promotions for meritorious service.

Today his company’s IT services include ASP web hosting, cloud, data and voice CPE, managed services and security.  Its business services include Internet, MPLS, Voice and Video. Finally its connectivity includes DS3, DSL, Ethernet, T-1 and Wireless.

This year the company has been on a hiring spree, adding sales, marketing, financial and technical acumen, and the company currently has some 5,000 customers.

Last fall, as AISG, the company unveiled a new Top Pay Agent partner program. The idea is to offer “an end-to-end agent support model, coupled with a unique compensation rarely awarded to Agents and Referral partners in the Telecommunications industry,” the company explained. “The AISG program has taken the unique approach to offer strong NON-Commitment commissions with full support, facilitating its agents to grow their business without burdensome quotas. By participating in the program, Value Added Resellers, individual sales professionals, equipment vendors and integrators become full service telecommunications consultants by bundling AISG services with their own offerings or referring opportunities to AISG.”

One partner is already tapping into the new agent approach. “AISG has supported me every step of the way, from my initial on-boarding and training to creative customer solutions and my first customer install,” said Brad Kempski, Chicago, IL. “Since signing up as an Agent, I have seen a substantial positive impact to my business. It is by far one of the best business decisions I made in the past year.”
