Integra Telecom names Matt Smith VP of sales for business services

Integra Telecom, a provider of business-grade networking
and communications solutions, has named Matt Smith vice president of sales for
business services. In this role, Smith will lead the company’s sales force in
aligning Integra’s full suite of communication services with the evolving needs
of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB).

Priority services Integra is deploying to increase
efficiencies for the SMB sector include Integra’s carrier-grade Ethernet and
investment in cloud services.

Businesses of all sizes are rapidly adopting
carrier-grade Ethernet platforms as the transport method of choice to support
their business applications and cloud services,” said Steve Zimba, chief
marketing officer for Integra Telecom.

Integra’s investment to augment its network with
carrier-class Ethernet and VPN services for the enterprise segment will benefit
thousands of businesses large and small. Integra is also deploying its own
suite of cloud services, which will allow it to offer voice and cloud
applications delivered over multiple access and bandwidth types.

Smith will oversee Integra’s 11-state service area
maintaining the company’s commitment to the SMB sector. This sector employs the
majority of the workforce in the metro areas Integra serves, making up a
substantial portion of the businesses occupying the 1,700 lit, fiber-fed
buildings on Integra’s 3,000-mile metro fiber network.

Integra’s robust fiber network is ready to meet the
needs of businesses regardless of their size. Our communication solutions offer
a full range of customer options and are competitively priced in order to
provide exceptional value for small- and medium-sized businesses,” said Smith.

Integra Telecom is also making significant
investments in its customer relationship management systems to strengthen its
customer service and enable Integra’s sales team to work more efficiently.

These new systems are being combined with powerful
databases and cutting edge mapping technology to give Smith’s team real time
access to important information regarding product availability, including
fiber, customer and prospect information.
