Remember when you had to actually pay for long distance calls by the minute? Not anymore! While most services and products have steadily increased in price, traditional telecommunication costs, e.g. wireline phone service, wireless solutions, and internet connectivity, have dropped significantly. However, it’s not like you have the money back in your account, you are just shifting to new technology. The sad reality is that too often, clients only think of their sales reps when purchasing additional, existing services.

Here’s a well-kept secret - as innovation has occurred and the IT industry has expanded, so have the solutions that telecom and technology consultants can bring to the table. This is true for our companies as well.

As demonstrated above, over the years, we have sold network services – MPLS, IP, fiber and SDWAN - and internet connectivity to clients. Extensive choices in providers and product offerings have been offered. Today’s reality is that we maintain an extensive portfolio of providers with the newest cloud, security, colocation and “as a service” offerings. As clients’ needs and priorities evolve, we are positioned to maintain our trusted advisor role and provide guidance. Whether it is on the available options, proposals based on pre-established criteria, pricing, or best-in-class service delivery, we are ready. Plus, post-sale, we are still managing solution deployment and handling ongoing support for clients.
