Why Use an Independent Technology Advocate?
Updated: Aug 19, 2019
When working directly with a telecommunications carrier or technology service provider, the representative assigned to your account is going to tell you they are the best match for your business. This is simply because their products or services are the only options they have to offer. However, every company is different, and a one-size-fits-all approach will never help your business reach its full potential. Using an independent technology advocate, such as Communications Deployment Partners (CDP), can help save your business time, money and headaches, and can help ensure your business is provided with solutions that best fit your needs and budget. In this article, we are going to discuss what an independent telecom advocate is and why your business should consider working with one.
What is an Independent Technology Advocate?
I want to start off by comparing a technology advocate to a profession familiar to most people, a real estate agent. When a person is in the market to buy a home, it is unlikely for them to deal directly with the seller themselves. Instead, they work through an agency who takes the time to get to know them, learns about what they want in a house, and shows them multiple options that align with the features they are looking for. When they decide on the house they want, the agent does all the behind scene work for them and negotiates with the seller to get the best possible prices. Best of all, the ones buying the house do not pay the agent anything. Once the sale is complete, the agent receives their commission through the seller.
It is a very similar scenario when it comes to working with a technology advocate. We take the time to help your business figure out exactly what services you need to optimize your business's performance. With connections to hundreds of providers, we gather pricing from the providers we believe offer the best solutions that meet your business's technology needs. We make sure you get the best possible pricing to work within your budget. Then just like a real estate agent, we are compensated not by you, but by the service provider you choose. Making your interaction with us completely free of charge.
Why Should Your Business Work With CDP?
When working directly with the service provider, you will find that the representative is happy to outfit your business with a full suite of services from their company. Our president, John Frustaci, has over 35 years of business technology consulting and carrier experience. Communications Deployment Partners was founded in 2007 to leverage this experience to assist customers in their search for the best telecommunications and technology solutions and solution providers without the pressure of a quota bearing sales representative. CDP invests a great deal of time on product and provider research to assure that we become a valuable resource to our customers and our focus is on a long term relationship, not a transactional event.
We consider ourselves technology advocates because we are much more than the middleman. With over 70 years of combined staff industry knowledge, we align your operational and financial objectives with the technologies and providers that help your business reach its full potential. We truly become an extension of your business, serving as your single point of contact on all thing’s technology. Sales representatives from direct carriers come and go, but CDP takes the time to understand your business and be your trusted, ongoing advocate as your business grows and your service needs evolve. The best part? All of that is at no cost to you!
