GREENSBORO, N.C. – February 25, 2008 – Beacon Technologies, one of the Triad’s largest and longest-standing Internet technology firms, has partnered with Greensboro-based Amplify Communications to help promote its expanded array of services.

Beacon – ranked No. 2 in The Business Journal of the Greater Triad’s recent list of the top Triad web-development firms – is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2008 on an upswing of growth and added capabilities. It recently became one of just a handful of companies nationwide to be named an “authorized consultant” and certified support partner of the Google Analytics product, which helps businesses maximize their e-commerce and web presence.

“It has been a great period of growth for Beacon, and we are excited about our increased capabilities, which can benefit businesses of all sizes, as well as our existing client base,” said Mark Dirks, president of Beacon Technologies. “We have always believed in the ‘Beacon advantage,’ and we are proud to have Amplify Communications assist us in sharing our story.”

The ‘Beacon Advantage,’ quite simply, is the company’s dedication to outstanding service to its clients. After delivering a new custom website, e-commerce solution or hosting program, Beacon provides a dedicated support line which rings directly to its Greensboro, N.C. headquarters, where clients can get immediate answers straight from the source.

Beacon Technologies in 2008 is rededicated to helping companies automate, grow and showcase their businesses in the online universe. Beacon is an expert in search engine marketing, e-commerce and web development – offering clients access to powerful tools like Hannon Hill’s Cascade Server content management tool. Beacon is also proud to offer prospective clients a free “search scorecard” to help companies determine how their website is ranked in the search engine universe.

The search scorecard, as well as a variety of useful information about the Internet and technology, can be found at Beacon’s recently-relaunched website, accessible at
