Providing Network Management, Broadband Solutions and Managed Services To Over 7,500 Branch Offices Nationwide
March 6, 2013, Pittsburgh, PA: The world's largest service organization recently awarded United Network Services, Inc. (UNSi) a renewed contract valued at over $30 million dollars. The five-year contract with three, 3-year renewal options provides an aggregated broadband solution for over 7,500 branch offices located throughout North America. In addition to the broadband component, the contract calls for an integrated billing and IT vendor management solution.
UNSi has been providing services to this customer service organization since 2004. The renewed contract follows a cost-savings plan for this organization that UNSi previously spearheaded which achieved bandwidth upgrades at over 62% of the branch locations with no additional cost, and with no service interruptions during upgrades. Under the terms of the new contract, UNSi will continue to provide a streamlined broadband and network solution specifically delivering high-speed business-class Broadband/Internet connections to branch sites nationwide, with reach to even the most remote locations. Previously, UNSi custom designed an electronically integrated billing system which provides automated back-office administrative support for this business entity, and consolidated billing - this organization will continue to leverage this efficient, time saving solution. UNSi's relationships with over 2,000 broadband providers nationwide allows it to manage the myriad service provider relationships, regardless of how geographically dispersed they are. This large service organization receives one bill from UNSi, instead of various bills from hundreds of service providers, and UNSi manages all vendor relations.
"We are proud to receive a renewed contract with this organization to continue to streamline their broadband solutions and to improve their IT vendor management and billing platform," stated Francis John, President & CEO of UNSi. "Being awarded this contract again, is a true testament to our company's network expertise and dedicated customer service that we have provided to this business entity since 2004. We have built a strong partnership with them over the years, and are continually working together to provide cost-efficient solutions that match their current business and technology objectives."
