Framework Communications Winning Case Study
Framework Communications, a Chicago based solutions provider, whose mission is to simplify telecom and IT for their local clients was the 2015 Channel Partners 360⁰ Business Value Award based on a case study that involved helping a national staffing firm with over 20 offices throughout the country. As this company grew and acquired smaller staffing agencies their telecommunications and IT became an expensive hodgepodge. Framework (FWC) analyzed the company’s entire telecommunications and IT infrastructure and monthly spending, and created a comprehensive plan to simplify their technology infrastructure and reduce the client’s telecommunications spending by just over 40%, saving the company almost $150,000 in the next 3 years in just explicit costs, and improved their system’s resiliency and uptime. Lastly, Frameworks created a 5 year plan for the client to follow that included greater acquisition activity. The comprehensive telephony solution will integrate newly acquired company’s telecommunications and IT with almost no lead time and little effort from their IT staff.
Framework Communications’ Vice President, Adam Barney, said of the firm, “We strive to provide businesses with cost-effective technology solutions and a client-friendly, simple support model so they can spend time growing their businesses instead of getting wrapped up in the minutiae of running the technology of a firm. With our services, we free up companies’ time so they can focus on other essentials of running a business.”
Framework Communications was the recipient of a 2013 Channel Partners 360⁰ Award and was also awarded the 2014 Top 10 Company by Channel Partners 360. Framework was also recently on the Inc. 500 List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies and named on Chicago’s 101 Best and Brightest Places to Work.
