Changing times at IComm
It seems that the more we encourage other organisations to embrace change, and move with the times, the more it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, and we see major changes here within IComm.
To be fair, "Embrace Change as the Only Constant" is one of our 6 core values, so we are definitely "walking the talk."
New Alliance Partnership
This month we OFFICIALLY became alliance partners in the Cloud Collective. We had been working quite closely with the other two partners, Antares Solutions and Quorum Systems, since the last half of 2019, as all three organisations are very well-aligned - in solution offerings, values, and management styles. However, this official alliance is now taking that partnership one step further.
Three Leading Microsoft Gold Partners
I have to say, I'm proud to be part of this powerhouse collective. Never before have we been able to offer a one-stop shop of this extent when it has come to the deployment of Microsoft solutions.
Yes, we have proudly provided end-to-end solutions within the Unified Communications/Intelligent Communications sphere, INCLUDING in-house AV/VC engineers. We have evolved from providing voice-only, telephony systems, and now we enable organisations to communicate in ways that we never could have imagined in 2001 when IComm was "born."
But we all know that Microsoft is so much more than JUST communications. We are lucky to be a Managed Partner, meaning that we have access to and are able to tap into Microsoft's broad network to find other partners to work with...
And now, that search is over. Between the three alliance partners of the Collective, there is almost nothing that we can't solve for your organisation's information technology needs.
With complementary technologies and skill sets, the Collective provides the in-depth expertise of a boutique agency, but with the broad product knowledge and muscle of a major consultancy.
Cloud Collective Values
INTEGRITY - We always do what is right: delivering on our commitments with a client-first mindset.
FAMILY - We are a collective team jointly pursuing excellence: honest and inclusive personal and professional relationships build trust and longevity.
HUMOUR - We believe the workplace needs more laughter: we are on a journey, so it's important to not take ourselves too seriously, and ensure we have fun along the way.
BALANCE - We believe awesome work starts at home: we support our team's lives, enabling them to be their very best at work.
Our new Alliance Partners
Working in the Microsoft world since 2006, Antares is an established, highly accredited Gold Partner who specialises in delivering expertise across four key practise areas:
- Data Solutions
- Custom Application Development
- Dynamics 365
They measure their success by your results - achieving better collaboration, reducing information overload, and empowering decision makers with accurate and timely data, among many other key markers.
Antares' ultimate aim is for your technology to be less visible - so you can spend more time growing your business, and not worrying about your systems.
Quorum is all about data and access - cloud infrastructure, networking, storage, mobility and security, business continuity and disaster recovery, and so much more. As well, they do all the training and enablement around all these solutions. Yes, they do that, too.
Quorum understands how to effectively apply, enhance, and integrate new and emerging technologies within an evolving business, while leveraging the available resources to execute within an organisation's budget. Their mission is to help organisations maximise the benefits of their Microsoft investment by implementing powerful and cohesive IT solutions.
What this means for our clients
Nothing but good things.
You will still be working with IComm, and operationally, our clients will see no difference in our service, what we provide, and how we interact with their teams and users.
Except... We will now have broader capabilities to offer our clients, and bring in the experts in other facets of the Microsoft solution offerings. Experts that we now know and trust and are working with on a daily basis to deliver broader solutions than we ever could on our own.
Our Cloud Collective motto is
"If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together."
And that is the key point of what this means for our clients.
Together, the partners of the Cloud Collective will enable our clients to go further than they thought possible - and we will be with you every step of the way.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. We're excited about joining the Cloud Collective, and we hope you see the potential that it means for our partnership with you, our valued clients.
