Milwaukee, WI – November 05, 2019

Renodis, a Telecom and Mobility Management Company, announced today that Executive Myron Braun will be among the invited presenters at the Milwaukee CIO Executive Summit taking place in Milwaukee, WI on November 14th.

Designed to combine unique executive networking with peer-driven content and insights from dynamic thought leaders, the invitation-only leadership summit will bring together Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) from several leading enterprises around the greater Milwaukee area.

Braun’s session entitled “Telecom and Mobility Management at the Center of Digital Modernization” will be delivered alongside Northern Tool + Equipment CIO Ross Gilbertson and addresses the fact that despite being the backbone of modern digitization, managing telecom remains a source of frustration for many IT leaders.

Session attendees will learn integrative approaches and real peer-to-peer examples of solving telecom pain points, how to leverage recent telecom innovations to differentiate the business, and insights into telecom’s future and maximizing potentials benefits.

“Throughout my thirty-year career in telecom, never has there been a time when CIOs and IT leaders can make such a major difference in the trajectory of an enterprise. Every IT leader can be the author of their company’s winning technology roadmap,” states Braun. “I’m honored to share the stage with one such leader, Ross Gilbertson, CIO of Northern Tool + Equipment. Mr. Gilbertson will provide a peer perspective about a new approach to navigating traditional telecom management headwinds. This approach unleashes the time and energy to exploit the tremendous new technologies that are transforming the client experience.” Braun goes on to emphasize that “Enlightened organizations have the CIO fully integrated into business planning and client experience strategies. Telecom technologies are now are at the forefront of these solutions with cloud platforms enabling joyful experiences and growing customer spend.”

A leader who has had a unique vantage point to telecom’s evolution since deregulation in 1984, Braun spent his first 16 years in the industry in various executive roles with MCI and Verizon. As VP of Sales and Marketing at Renodis, he has spent the past 12 years helping the company develop, mature and market the nation’s most effective turnkey telecom managed services solution. Having a front row seat from multiple perspectives within the massive telecom industry provided Braun with the insights that have led to true innovation in managing the chaos of the telecom lifecycle.

We’re excited to announce Renodis was featured by Microsoft in a customer story!

The following is an excerpt from a recent press release highlighting the news:

Renodis, America’s first communications managed services company focused on a seamless and superior communications experience for clients, was featured by Microsoft in a story that showcased the innovative use of Microsoft Cloud technology to professionally manage communications environments.

“Together, we created a great piece that really shows the innovative ways Renodis has transformed its business to better serve customers and increase employee productivity,” states Leo Mason, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft. “The Renodis promise is to help clients spend more time on strategic initiatives, and less on operations. To do that, Renodis needed a world-class delivery model with supporting technology that allowed it to provide a cost-of-operations lower than its clients could accomplish on their own.”

“We offer a set of outsourcing management services to our clients to manage their communications infrastructure,” says Paul Cashin, Vice President of Client Solutions for Renodis. “As we examined the marketplace, there wasn’t an existing platform that allowed us to build out our service model. We needed to find a platform that offered core capabilities but could also be expanded and integrated.”

To evolve its managed services solution, Renodis identified 5 key requirements: a central company-wide platform, ability to track sales and marketing activities, integration capability with other Microsoft solutions, a complete view of client information, and anytime/anywhere access. Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online supported Renodis’ emerging business requirements by providing a core set of functions: a ticketing system, SLA functionally, contract database, integration options, and customer lifecycle management.

A direct benefit for Renodis clients is that all the data about their communications infrastructure is stored in one location. Renodis gives clients actionable insights based on the client’s particular situation, and it is able to compare how each client’s communications layer compares to the industry best-practices derived from its experience managing multiple clients’ communications infrastructures. “It comes down to value provided,” Cashin says. “We measure ourselves on the business, technical, economic, and support value we are providing to our clients. The Dynamics platform allows us to track and report on our performance across those four value dimensions.”

Renodis has coined the term Vision™ for its platform powered by Microsoft, affirming the company’s commitment to providing clients with professional management of their communications environment.
