Since 1996, Global Interactive Solutions (GIS) has performed on-site videoconferencing installations in over 70 countries and now serves customers and their equipment in over 100 countries worldwide. In recognition of this outstanding track record, the U.S. Small Business Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, declared us the 2006 Exporter of the Year for the Southeastern United States. Since 2006 we have also been offering cloud-hosted videoconferencing as a service (VCaaS) as well as videoconferencing management services. This allows our clients to leverage cloud solutions and video bridging to complement their on-site telepresence systems. Our private cloud hosting service has become an integral part of who we are and what we deliver.
Serving our extensive global network has given us considerable expertise for solving issues in even the most challenging technical environments. Our seasoned and highly-skilled technical team delivers immediate support in your time zone and makes every effort to provide it in your language. We also offer local manufacturers' maintenance contracts, so clients can call an in-country phone number to get technical support or receive express part replacement. We can do all this because we partner with an array of manufacturers and service providers worldwide to coordinate complete and seamless videoconferencing for our clients.
We pride ourselves on working with our clients to quickly resolve any issues. To date we have never been engaged in any litigation or been subject to any collection proceedings. GIS is a privately-held company with a solid financial track record and is based in Mableton, Georgia, United States.
