Nomination Featured ATC’s Work with LAZ Parking
Las Vegas, NV, March 17, 2015—Channel Partners magazine, a resource for indirect sales channels offering IT and telecom systems and services, announced that Advanced Technology Consulting has been selected as a winner of the 2015 Channel Partners 360⁰ Business Value Awards.
Fifty winners were honored during an awards ceremony last night (March 16, 2015) at the Spring 2015 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.
“The response to the Channel Partners 360° awards has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Art Wittmann, content director of Channel Partners. “Unlike other programs that honor size and sales, this program recognizes the business value that partners are providing to their customers from holistic systems and services.”
To determine the winner of Channel Partners 360⁰, companies completed an application that asked them to demonstrate how they are addressing the convergence of IT and telecom services and how they are creating business value for their customers. The expert panel evaluated and scored all applications to determine the Top 50 candidates that exemplify the Channel Partners 360° values.
LAZ Parking Drives Nomination
ATC’s work for LAZ Parking characterized the kind of business value recognized by the Channel 360° award. ATC’s award nomination spotlighted LAZ Parking and its engagement with Darren DeMartino, ATC Co-Founder and Managing Partner, which included a total rework and optimization of their wireless, MPLS, POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service), and broadband services.
The make-up of LAZ Parking’s 1,850 plus locations varies greatly, from the corporate “Home Office” in Hartford, CT, to urban surface parking lots and municipal, multi-level garages. Early results indicate a 35+ percent annual savings on mobility (wireless) and a 40 percent cut on MPLS.
Inch Wide, Mile Deep in Telecom
The proliferation of VoIP, bandwidth-intensive applications and fiber connectivity has created a new, more complex telecom landscape. This new landscape is a multifaceted motherland of scaled services and outsourced solutions. Navigating it can be difficult. Specialist boutiques such as ATC have therefore become indispensable to organizations of all sizes.
“In the telecom field we are an inch wide and a mile deep,” says David Goodwin, ATC Co-Founder and Managing Partner. “We are not trying to be all things to all people. Our niche is particularly nuanced and our skill set is becoming increasingly valued at the C-level.”
“Our job is to put together an inclusive strategy to handle all services, all locations, all contracts,” adds DeMartino. “Not only do we have deep expertise in telecom, we are also project managers. We make sure everything comes together, all at little to no cost.”
