Facility Gateway Corporation receives multiple awards from Inc. Magazine…again!

Facility Gateway Corporation logo

Inc. Magazine recently published their annual list of the Top 5000 revenue earning companies for 2013.

For the second year in a row, the magazine recognized the remarkable growth of Facility Gateway Corporation (FGC). This data center professional services and physical layer infrastructure provider logged in a staggering 749% growth over the last three years.

Inc. recognized FGC as:

In addition, FGC was recognized as:

  • #2 of the Top 100 Environmental Services Companies
  • #5 of the Top 100 Wisconsin Companies
  • 31 jobs added

FGC is no stranger to the Inc. annual list. They recorded a score of #663 on the list for 2012.

Looking at these remarkable achievements, I decided it was time to spend some time I spent some time with the people at FCG. I wanted to understand how they have been able to achieve such remarkable and prolonged growth in our highly competitive industry.

The first thing I heard from FGC when I asked about their success was a crystal-clear commitment to serving the needs their existing customers. It was also clear that FGC places profound value on feedback from those customers. FGC said,

“FGC can attribute our growth to our dedicated focus on great customer service and ensuring that our current customers are well taken care of. We are constantly listening to their feedback on the solutions we provide in an effort to constantly be improving our services and software.”

Another important factor in their success appears to a custom software package called “Facility Keys” that FGC developed to manage physical layer infrastructure. According to FGC,

“Proper asset maintenance management is critical to ensuring a reliable data center. Facility Keys is the tool we created to make this daunting task an organized and easy process. We take our customers feedback or specific requests and can customize our software and solutions based on their specific needs.

Once again, it’s clear that the voice of the customer is of paramount importance to FGC. A customer feedback management process is built right into the Facility Keys software package. This feature allows FGC personnel to swiftly respond to their customer’s suggestions and requests.

Finally, FGC has not forgotten about the importance of skilled personnel in reliability operation of data center environments. They explained,

“The human component to Facility Keys makes it different than other asset management software out there in that we have human eyes on each item that is uploaded, ensuring completion and accuracy of all operational reports.”

Facility Gateway Corporation (FGC) has clearly found a winning recipe that includes laser focus on customer needs, industry leading software tools and skilled human capital. These core values should keep them on a winning track for a long time. We hope to see FGC on the Inc. 5000 list for a third year in a row.
