Strategy

We help clients involve stakeholders, define requirements, cut through solution confusion, negotiate best pricing/terms and implement solutions for voice and data connectivity, unified communications, collaboration and call centers.

Telecom is not so simple anymore ...

Technology is transforming the way we engage employees and clients. Twenty years ago, things were simple. AT&T provided circuits. Avaya provided phone systems. Cisco did networking. Microsoft did servers and desktops. Specialized providers did call centers. Hosted solutions were in their market adoption infancy and there was no talk of Slack, Teams and G-Suite. 

Today, all of the vendors and technologies are converging into a truly unified communications environment. We want our connectivity, content and communications to be seamless and we want it to connect with our CRMs, ERPs and other tools. 

We can help with complexity. When clients use us in their telecom strategy creation and vendor selection, they see an average of 30% time savings and 15% cost reduction
