As a Chamber of Commerce member, Edge Information Technologies enjoyed a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday afternoon.

Edge Information Technology has had a presence in Montgomery County for more than 11 years, as of Friday, the company has a new, physical presence in Crawfordsville.

Owner, President and Lead Consultant Ryan Edgell said that the company chose Crawfordsville for the company’s new location for several reasons. He said that it is cheaper to operate in Crawfordsville in contrast with the other office locations in Lafayette and Indianapolis. He said that the company has lots of clients in the area, including several businesses in the county as well as the Crawfordsville Police and Fire Departments and the Montgomery County government.

Edge only does IT for companies and municipalities, but Edgell mentioned one of his consultants also does independent work for residences and churches. He said that the company has focused on public safety and municipality IT recently, picking up contracts with Vigo County and the Town of Cumberland.

The company will be housing its cloud computing services in the new office. He said the company will offer uniquely secure cloud services. He said that Edge’s services will be offered in house rather than third party and that the location will be secure and reliable with measures against overheating and power failure.  

Edgell said the company puts clients first and offers superior services. He said that his company has had to correct problems that other IT companies have created for their clients by not fixing the problem right the first time.  

“I only hire top notch professionals who have real experience in IT. We take IT seriously,” Edgell said. “We try to fix the root cause of the problem so our fixes are permanent.”

Edge currently has seven employees and they will be looking to hire at least two more employees. Edge will be hiring another IT consultant and an assistant.

Edge IT’s office is located at 502 E. Market St. More information about Edge and its services is available at edgeit.com.
