Pegasus TransTech announced this week that it is building a new corporate data center in Tampa, FL and that the company also intends to open a third data center this fall in Minneapolis, MN to support its record growth. The interconnected data centers, including an existing production data center in Madison, WI, are expected to provide enhanced security, redundancy and reliability for Pegasus TransTech’s fleet customers.
The company also announced it will relocate its Tampa, FL corporate offices to new space in January 2010. The new offices will be located in Tampa’s first LEED-certified energy-efficient building, Westshore’s Corporate Center Four near Tampa International Airport and International Plaza.
The Class A office building has been certified through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s Green Building rating system– a nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. With its TransTech’s “Go Green, Go Paperless” solutions and long-term commitment to provide environmentally sound products and services, the move to an LEED-certified office was a natural choice, noted Pagasus.
Pegasus TransTech’s data centers host the document images scanned at truck stops around the country through the Transflo Express truckstop scanning program. Authorized customers can access those documents any time for up to 14 days on the secure Transflo Express website. The geographically separated data centers provide reliable back up for Transflo Express documents as well as for all Pegasus TransTech data.
“When our management team made a decision to seek new office and data center space, we realized our needs were somewhat unique due to the technology we utilize and the 24x7 customer services we provide,” said Bob Helms, Pegasus chairman & CEO. “Our objective was to provide excellent working conditions for our employees and world class service for our customers.”
