In A Fast-Growing MSP Market, Advantage Communications Group Reports Extreme Growth in 2023

Advantage Communications Group (Advantage), a global telecom managed services provider (MSP), announced double digit year-over-year growth for the previous five years at ITEXPO this week. ITEXPO is one of the longest-running, largest, and most prestigious technology conferences in the world.

“2022 was a year of strong geographic, financial, service and workforce growth for the company,” says Advantage Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer Steve Rome. “Businesses everywhere are realizing that their legacy infrastructure is inefficient, expensive, and lacking critical security features.  We help businesses address all of these issues, particularly as current events impact their operations, in addition to significant cost and labor savings.”

Throughout 2022, Advantage has been focusing on increasing its global footprint. They successfully brought on additional workforce in Lyon, France and Portugal to extend the reach of the European headquarters in Barcelona, Spain.

The company explained that this expansion efforts and hiring of additional employees will provide greater local support for its regional clients and allow the company to reach more customers in high-growth international markets.

To support the substantial growth of its EMEA client base, including a €6B building materials enterprise, numerous pharmaceuticals, and hospitality organizations, Advantage onboarded 10 new European team members in sales and engineering capacities in addition to 35 new staff the U.S added in the last year alone.  The firm anticipates a similar or steeper growth trajectory in 2023.

Advantage attributes its growth in part to its consistently broadening services portfolio that anticipates the needs of today’s evolving enterprises. Advantage recently added a new automated bill payment solution to its portfolio of managed offerings to complement its full lifecycle expense management service.

This new service combines a centralized, automated accounts payable process with real-time visibility across the entire billing lifecycle for telecom and networking expenses within Advantage’s proprietary customer expense portal, Command Center.

The company also announced that last year, Advantage joined forces with Extreme Networks to make its white-glove managed telecom services available to Extreme customers. This innovative collaboration enables Extreme customers to simplify their infrastructure lifecycle and centralize inventory and expenses.

Advantage also revealed it has partnered with Conscia, a firm specializing in networking, cloud and cybersecurity on a number of joint engagements.  With their reach and offices throughout the EU, Consica – which is also celebrating its 20th anniversary – Advantage describes this as an ideal complement for customers needing design and implementation of infrastructure. 

“2023 will be a special year for Advantage, as we celebrate our 20th year in business,” said David Gardner, Advantage CEO. “Our team is firing on all cylinders.   We couldn’t be more excited for another year of innovation, differentiation and extraordinary growth.”
