“I needed to take a tighter grip on my telecom
expenses. vCom’s cloud-based software provides us with the visibility and
control over telecom spend in a single portal. Our key drivers in selecting
vCom were the need to consolidate the billing of the many carriers we use
across the country, the increased visibility and improved management of our
spending, and the opportunity to optimize our technology,” said Mike Shannon,
CIO of Dechert.
With vCom, customers gain carrier-agnostic, wholesale
buying power and a simple, transparent view into all of their telecom services
and activity through vCom’s cloud-based application. They also receive a single
bill for all services across the country.
“Law firm IT leaders operate under high stakes —
they face little-to-no tolerance for network downtime, must provide secure
access to massive amounts of data, and they have a demanding clientele of
expensive professionals. The stability, efficiency and security of their
network infrastructure are mission critical,” said Gary Storm, president
and CEO of vCom Solutions.
Dechert is a leading international law firm with 22
offices in the United States, Europe and Asia.
“With the critical nature of the network’s health,
it can be a challenge for legal organizations to devote IT staff to addressing
the cost of the network, managing the various suppliers, and optimizing the
underlying technology. This is why vCom is such a great solution for law firms
— we help them select the right telecom technology, gain visibility and control
over their spending and inventory, and ultimately save them time and
money,” Gary Storm added.
