Rolta Advizex is a leading Hybrid Cloud solutions provider with over 10 offices located in the Midwest and Northeast regions of the US. Over the past couple of years, many of our office leases were expiring and we were evaluating moving them into new locations. We determined that this was the right time to review our current network and phone solutions that support each location based on performance, capabilities and cost. TeleData Select helped us perform a thorough cost analysis on all of our voice and data lines as well as phone systems and recommended new more cost effective alternatives. At the end of the project, our results were staggering:
– Installed redundant internet connections with 5-10x the previous amount of bandwidth at less than 50% of the previous costs
– Migrated all offices to a single, hosted VOIP system which also provided nearly $100K of annual savings in web and audio conferencing
– Removed all dedicated voice circuits and POTS lines tied to phone and fax services
– Implemented SD WAN to replace MPLS circuits for interoffice connectivity
– Eliminated over 25 monthly bills and vendor contracts

The time spent and the thorough analysis of our problem by TeleData Select was really a game changer for us
“Our staffing firm Express Professionals located in Atlanta, GA provides temp, temp to hire and permanent placement for employees throughout the Atlanta Area. We are dependent on the phone and need quality service for voice and data services. So after spending months dealing with ATT trying to fix the quality of our voice lines, I reached out to TeleData Select to help fix a major issue we had with our voice lines. After we tried for months to get someone to help us with lots of finger-pointing, we turned to John Hagan and his team and TeleData Select. The time spent and the thorough analysis of our problem by TeleData Select was really a game changer for us. I would recommend Teledata Select to anyone needing a consultative analysis due to phone issues or to any company just looking to save money with their telecom and data services expenses.”
