Expanding Market with Customer-Centric Goals

CallTower focuses on finding and creating a unified communication and collaboration solution for its customers. The company does not try to find the right customers for its solution nor try to force prospects to make a single solution function in a dysfunctional environment. This idea permeates the company’s efforts to develop solutions as fulfilling the customers’ needs becomes its quest.

Moreover, CallTower listens to the needs of its customers and that drives its decisions when it comes to crafting solutions and acquiring the technology. It is also the guiding principle behind the company’s partnerships and the equipment it offers as a whole. Hence, CallTower manages to win its customers’ appreciation through the exhaustive efforts it puts into getting them the functionality to enable their communication.

Recently, CallTower partnered with C3 Integrated Solutions to deliver a voice and audio conferencing for Microsoft Teams within a GCC High environment for government contractors. This is something very few solution providers put effort into while creating a distinct attribute for the company to set it apart from others.

 

Developing Solutions of Tomorrow through Cloud

Bret believes that the Telecom industry is currently rife with disruption, and this implies that companies like CallTower need to strive to be ahead of the curve and deny any form of complacency. CallTower is always looking for the next piece of technology that can enhance the communication strategies of customers. The company was built on the idea that cloud was the future of internet telephony and that ideology helped it to become a pioneer of the cloud deployment initiative. Also, much of the company’s decisions and current solutions mirror that of those founding beliefs.

 

Transforming Challenges into Opportunities

Bret is a firm advocate of ensuring the success of the customers through CallTower’s unparalleled solutions. Hence, for him, the biggest challenge the company faces are the ones that run the gamut along with their ever-evolving communication needs. To mitigate this challenge, CallTower constantly updates and enhances its offerings to match the demands and expectations. The company feels it is a satisfying but daunting endeavor.

 

Achieving the Honorary Milestones

CallTower continues its upward trajectory and has made it evident by featuring in Enterprise Networking Magazine’s “Top 10 Cisco Consulting/Service Companies 2019” The company was also recognized as one of the 30 Hottest Tech Companies to Watch in 2019 by CIO Bulletin.

Building A Roadmap for Connected Future

Speaking on the future, Bret remarks that companies are still in the early stages of transitioning to cloud-based unified communication solutions like Microsoft Teams and Cisco HCS, as well as comprehensive options like CallTower proprietary CT Cloud Voice solution. This transition is a new and challenging prospect for many companies, especially those facing the uncertainty of today’s market. However, he is confident that CallTower is committed to being the best option for companies to communicate and collaborate in a cloud environment.
