Cooking up Family Tradition by LaTina Emerson, Staff Writer – Augusta Chronicle

PowerServe expands its base by acquiring 7th Street Media

For Immediate Release – On March 1, 2008, PowerServe, a web design and software development company based in Augusta, announced the acquisition of over one hundred 7th Street Media web clients from Morris Communications. Although the majority of the clients are local small businesses, they also include clients throughout the United States.

These clients can expect to benefit from PowerServe’s full range of services: timely support, award winning graphic design, and superior technology solutions, which include content management, e-commerce, real estate solutions, and custom web development.

Since restructuring and refocusing the company in 2003, PowerServe has grown in many ways. The company has over 350 satisfied customers being served by 15 experienced analysts, graphic designers and programmers.

“The deal makes sense for both companies and our clients. We were looking to grow the web design and hosting aspect of our business and Morris Communication had already decided to phase out 7th Street Media”, said Jeff Partl, PowerServe’s President. “The clients will now be working with a provider that has more resources to help them grow their business.”
