NGA Forms Technical Support Alliance for Member Computer Network Services

The National Glass Association (NGA) has formed an alliance with Solid Systems, Inc. to provide its member companies access to an array of technical support services, automated data back-ups, Web and e-mail hosting, anti-spam and anti-virus support, and nationwide DSL service.

“The NGA has added these important components to its menu of member services based on valuable input from members of our National Windshield Repair Committee, who recognize the critical importance of reliable computer systems and support,” said Leo Cyr, NGA Vice President, Auto Glass Division.

The alliance will give NGA member companies, both large and small, access to the high-quality support team necessary to keep systems running efficiently and utilize emerging technologies. The services will be provided to association members at a substantial discount.

“Premier network services can substantially increase productivity and profit margins, but are cost-prohibitive for many smaller companies,” said Tim McDonald, founder and president of Solid Systems, Inc. “We are proud that our alliance with the NGA puts these services within reach of companies of all sizes.”

“There is no question that the NGA’s new technical support alliance brings significant value to our membership. It is yet another service we now offer that will help boost our member companies’ bottom lines, and you can’t get more valuable than that,” said NGA Vice President of Association Services David Walker.

Founded in 1948, the National Glass Association is the largest trade association representing the entire flat glass industry.
