Our customer centric focus is what continues to foster our growth and what allows us to do things like we accomplished today. I hope our customers, new and old, are just as excited as we are about today’s news.

Our pricing aligns with what they are accustomed to from Incero, but our scale allows us to offer them a great deal more in both solutions and customer service. Hivelocity has made exceptional customer service and technical support the foundation of its business since 2002. Our objective is to exceed our customer’s expectations every time we interact with them. Over the next few months our goal is to improve upon everything they have already enjoyed at Incero previously. We aim to improve their network, their support experience and give them more options to most effectively operate their online presence.”
