Nomination Showcases Darren DeMartino’s Work with Hubbell
Channel Partners recently announced that Advanced Technology Consulting (ATC) is a finalist for Next-Gen Telecom Award as part of the inaugural Channel Partners Excellence in Digital Services Awards.
ATC’s award entry showcased the work done on behalf of ATC client, Hubbell. ATC’s co-founder and managing partner, Darren DeMartino, spearheaded the project.
The Excellence in Digital Service Awards recognizes IT consultants who deliver stellar business outcomes on behalf of their clients. Recognition is provided in 10 categories. ATC is also a finalist for the Consultant of the Year Award. The Next-Gen Telecom award specifically recognizes excellence in delivering telecommunications and collaboration capabilities including client and user support.
Winners will be announced during a reception held as a part of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, April 9-12, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The Digital Services Awards are a reformatted extension of the original Digi Awards. ATC is a four-time Digi Award winner.
Faced with aging, disparate telephony platforms across 80+ locations, Hubbell Incorporated’s telecommunications manager, Jeff Mazzabufi, knew a new single platform was going to be needed sooner rather than later.
Mazzabufi turned to ATC’s co-founder and managing partner, Darren DeMartino, for counsel and to spearhead the bid process, which culminated in the review of seven different vendors on three different platforms.
“Darren thoroughly understands the enterprise UCaaS market. He did a great job of aligning our needs with the providers we needed to consider. In the end, we leaned on him for evaluation neutrality and recommendations.”
Mazzabufi’s business calculations for the project, which could end up including 7,000 handsets, determined the project to be “cost neutral” and possibly “cost benefit.” And, this doesn’t take into account the employee productivity enhancements associated with unified communications and the move to a single contact center, not to mention the elimination of broad support of multiple PBXs.
