Tech Image Gains Three Cutting Edge Tech Companies

Tech Image, recognized as one of the premier and most influential technology public relations firms, announced that it has recently become the agency of record for Follett Digital Resources, INOC and Laurus Technologies.

These three new clients specialize as follows:

-- Follett Digital Resources is a business unit of Follett Corporation, which has more than 130 years of experience in the field of education. Follett Digital Resources provides educational software, services and technology that help educators and publishers meet the unique needs of 21st century learners that are no longer using only a textbook. The enriched, interactive products empower both the student and the educator.

-- INOC (Independent Network Operations Consortium) was founded in December 2000 to offer Internet service provider companies 24x7 support, software, quality data services and Internet connectivity. INOC provides an affordable, US-based data monitoring service, and collocation and managed hosting solutions.

-- Laurus Technologies is a Midwest regional supplier of technology solutions. As an IT consulting firm, Laurus Technologies provides and manages superior resources to help its clients work through highly complex technology solutions, such as education on new technology, implementation support, budgeting and more. Laurus aids at every stage in a company's technological implementation from strategizing and planning, to achieving hoped-for results.

"We are excited about the opportunity to help each of these organizations tell their stories," said Mike Nikolich, President of Tech Image. "Tech Image delivers a rapid ramp-up and tangible results to assure that budgets are maximized and the amount of hand-holding required is minimal. We're looking forward to applying those capabilities to these new clients."

As it has since 1993, Tech Image will be supplying these technology companies with individually tailored strategic public relations programs that help them address specific concerns within their businesses. Through the agency's award-winning approach, the companies will gain quality media exposure, while positioning themselves as leaders within their respective industries.
