M5 Networks’ Outsourced IP Phone System Now Used by More Than 8,000 Employees of New York Metro Area Businesses
Cornick, Garber & Sandler Selects M5 to Provide Service for Sixty-Five Employees
New York – M5 Networks, the northeast’s leading outsourced IP phone system provider, today announced that Cornick, Garber & Sandler, LLP (CG&S), a New York City-based certified public accounting firm, has selected M5 to provide phone system access to its sixty-five employees, pushing M5’s user-base over eight thousand for the first time. This important milestone marks a sixty percent increase in the size of its user base since M5 announced its five thousandth end-user last year.
As CG&S prepared to move its corporate headquarters, the company, a responsive, midsize accounting firm, sought a solution that would enable its staff of CPAs to maintain its commitment to providing personal service and attention to all of their clients. Keeping this requirement in mind, CG&S selected M5’s Outsourced IP Phone System over a premise-based solution from Nortel on the basis of M5’s customer service track record, its solution’s reliability and the total cost of ownership of a hosted IP phone system.
“M5 provides exactly the high level of service and reliability that our firm and clients demand," said Sid Edelstein, Information Technology Director at Cornick, Garber & Sandler and founder of the firms’ IT consulting division, CGSolutions, Inc. "M5’s outsourced solution is so compelling that we advise our own clients to consider it when they are in the market for a new phone system.”
M5’s Outsourced IP Phone System provides CG&S with dependable, streamlined communications, and each employee receives a unique direct-dial phone number and personal voicemail which helps to improve staff and client interactions. In addition, CG&S receives a high-quality, redundant phone system network that is actively monitored by M5’s team of trained engineers. Since the phone system is entirely outsourced, Cornick’s staff can instead devote their time and energy to focusing on its clients’ needs.
"More companies are realizing the advantages of outsourcing the phone system over installing and managing it in-house,” said Dan Hoffman, M5’s president and CEO. “These companies prefer to focus on their core competencies and grow their businesses rather than to fumble with phone system equipment and M5 is very happy to help them do just that. M5 has made it our mission to provide a service that our clients can trust and our continued growth in the marketplace demonstrates our success.”
