TEAM Companies has announced that RSM McGladrey Inc., a provider of tax and consulting services under the McGladrey brand, has signed a five-year contract extension to their existing contract, along with a new five-year contract for disaster recovery space in the TEAM Companies Des Moines facility.

TEAM Companies' state-of-the-art data centers are built to meet the goals and objectives that professional services providers such as RSM McGladrey require. "Like all of our facilities, the Cedar Falls Data Center is built to protect vital information, and virtually eliminate the chance of catastrophic failure," said Karla Myers, chief financial officer at TEAM Companies.

"Not having to worry about electrical outages, storms or security breaches has put our company, and me at ease," says Rob Lewis, senior director, Technical Services for RSM McGladrey. "Deciding to sign an extension with TEAM was the right decision. Much like McGladrey, TEAM Companies' exhibits the expertise of a large provider with the friendly, can-do attitude of a smaller, local company. They clearly understand our needs, know what they are talking about, are open and honest about helping us succeed, and make us feel like we are the only customer they have."

All TEAM Companies facilities are designed according to the highest industry standards, including Tier III, SAS70, and receive a "fail-safe" facility classification. "The Upper Midwest is statistically one of the safest, most cost-effective areas in the United States for a data center," said Myers. "TEAM Companies has built a network of world-class data centers in this region because the logistics are ideal for providing companies like RSM McGladrey with turnkey global solutions in IT infrastructure and security."
