With the rollout of our new Consultant Liaison Program, and our ongoing Partner Program, we get this question a lot. And I understand why. People are in business to make money, and they want to know how we help make that happen. They also want to make sure that whatever exposure we may have to their clients ends up making them look good. We understand that it’s not worth risking your reputation on some fly-by-night partner who can’t deliver. So why would you want to work with us? Here are some reasons why…
- We started in 1991.
Ok, we started over twenty years ago – So What, right? Wrong. What that means is that we’ve got tried and true processes that we KNOW work. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t be here, would we.
- Our Founder used to be a telecom consultant.
Nancy Peckham, Valicom’s CEO and Founder actually came from the other side of the fence. She started out as a consultant, so she built this company on the same principles that make a great consultant, and we have a deep understanding of how to work with consultants and partners.
- Our Founder is a woman.
Hooray for Women’s Lib! No, that isn’t why you should give a hoot about the gender of our owner. Why you care is that it means we are a certified Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). This is a good thing, since many mid-size to large corporations, and almost all government entities, will give you “extra credit” for being able to meet their supplier diversity goals. By working with us, you can leverage that WBE status too.
- We have both Tech and Talent.
Many firms these days tout that they have software. But, as everyone knows, software is only as good as the brains behind it. And boy do we have brains. Our Telecom Analyst teams average ten years of experience doing telecom auditing, inventory management, network optimization and contract negotiation. So when you need help, or utilize our back office services for your clients, you know you’re getting experienced, resourceful human beings to work with.
- Our clients love us.
For over twelve years, we have surveyed our clients quarterly, to learn how well we are delivering in eight key areas: professionalism, overall expectation, communication, quality and accuracy, understanding client needs, responsiveness, meeting deadlines, and overall value. Our scores? 3.89 out of 4.0 as of winter 2011. What that means is that we care about how we deliver services, and it shows. It also means that the same level of service we show our clients, we will show yours.
