LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BEAC) (www.askbeacon.com) an emerging global leader in the design, implementation and management of high performance Information Technology Systems (ITS) infrastructure solutions, today announces a Master Marketing Agreement has been executed with Controlco Sustainable Solutions Group (CSSG) to pursue joint ITS infrastructure, sustainability and integrated systemsprojects with Government and Fortune 1000 commercial and industrial clients.
The Master Marketing agreement will focus the two companies' sales and marketing efforts on clients with requirements for information technology and telecommunications products and services including software development, infrastructure design, passive optical networks, building systems integration and management platforms. This agreement will also enable Beacon to offer its own Smart Enterprise line of software products, which is a single, unified environment that brings together all aspects of implementing a successful ITS deployment and includes engineering components, user management, navigation building, data modeling, and dashboard design specific to the user responsibilities.
"This agreement creates two new strategic opportunities for Beacon," said Bruce Widener, CEO of Beacon Solutions. "First, Beacon will engage a new base of potential customers for ITS infrastructure services. This is the second Marketing Agreement in the last couple of months we have executed and I am proud to partner with another global leader of information technologies for cross-marketing opportunities. Second, the Beacon Smart Enterprise software will enable multi-location, or large clients, a centralized ITS management solution, which creates efficiency and operating savings. This relationship is highly complementary to each company's strengths and will enable us both to enter new client territory for organic growth. These new partnering opportunities allow Beacon to deliver more services our complex clients require, but at the same time keeping Beacon focused to our four core ITS disciplines we have identified as being the most profitable."
Founded in 1958, privately-held, California based CSSG is a division of Controlco, a premier systems integration and software developer for a broad spectrum of industrial and commercial clients. Controlco offers a full suite of products and services for building automation, industrial instrumentation, systems integration and software to suit customer needs with the highest quality and value to clients.
"I look forward to working with Beacon on solving the complex ITS infrastructure solutions our clients require," said Brian Turner, Vice President of Sales for Controlco. "Our Marketing Agreement will allow Beacon and Controlco to partner on ITS solutions for our joint clients, but also open a new client base to our respective companies and bring new solutions to both sales groups. The Controlco and Beacon ITS partnering solution will deliver a richer client experience for Fortune 1000 clients with the need to standardize, automate and better manage their ITS infrastructure."
