Hi Doreen, it's important that company articles are written in a neutral encyclopaedic way, and that all claims are supported by independent verifiable sources

In the selected text that follows, I've bolded parts that need to be removed or verified as above, and indicated where refs are needed. I appreciate that you have references, but it's best to put them in-line so it's clear what they are referencing.[1]

Doreen, I've copyedited Navisite. The PCI link goes to a disambiguation page, and i don't know what it stands for. You need to fix the link or spell it out to avoid confusion jimfbleak (talk) 06:49, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Catering to small and medium businesses as well as large organizations, the company currently has an established customer base with approximately 1500 customers across diverse industry verticals.(ref)

NaviSite has successfully completed a SAS 70 Type II (Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70) Audit for its Andover, MA and San Jose, California data centers, and is the Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and Oracle Certified Advantage Partner. Besides, the company is an active member of the PCI Security Standards Council and helps organizations achieve and maintain PCI compliance.

It reads as if it's taken from the company website - why offers rather than provides? Why no neutral comparison with your competitors? I've seen far worse examples than this and a bit of work should make it acceptable. Let me know if you need any help, jimfbleak (talk) 16:57, 13 January 2009 (UTC)
If you need to use the same ref more than once, use <ref name = NAME >Insert footnote text here</ref> for the first occurrence, and <ref name = NAME/> for subsequent uses jimfbleak (talk) 17:02, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


  1. ^ like this, immediately following punctuation
