Renodis Milestone: 15 Years of Freeing Clients from Telecom and Mobility Challenges
, ,

Renodis is excited to announce its 15-year anniversary!

Since Renodis’ small beginnings in 2002, the company has grown into an industry recognized leader in telecom management with 55 employees across 5 states and 100+ enterprise clients.

“This milestone is a big one – as I reflect on the founding of our company and the birth of my eldest daughter, Chloé, on that same day,” comments Craig Beason, CEO and Owner of Renodis. “It gives me great pride as I see both our company and my daughter reaching new heights in achievements and having the courage to innovate among peers. We founded Renodis to help businesses solve their telecom problems. The more we solved, the more we realized our lifecycle approach to telecom management uniquely positioned us to impact our clients’ bottom line while giving them back more time to focus on their businesses. We are very excited about our future as the company continues to grow. I look forward to joining Renodis employees, clients and business partners in celebrating the company’s 15th anniversary.”

Renodis employees celebrated with a fun family picnic at the St. Paul Saints Stadium along with kicking off a new employee initiative and focus on charitable giving and employee recognition which will continue for years ahead.

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.

Saint Paul, MN (May 16, 2015) – Renodis (, America’s first communications managed services company focused on a seamless and superior communications experience for clients, was pleased to support and accompany local WWII Veteran, Paul Bolden, as he traveled to Washington, D.C. as part of the Honor Flight program, a non-profit organization dedicated to transporting veterans to visit memorials built to honor their service.

“I’m really excited. I’m 86 years old and I used to travel a lot so it’s renewing in me all over again. I was in Bremerhaven Germany and I haven’t had contact with any of the guys since 1946”, recalls Paul Bolden.

“I’m honored to be able to accompany Paul as he visits Washington, D.C. for the first time. This area’s Honor Flight program has been running since 2005 and this will be the 14th Honor Flight which includes 77 veterans and 88 guardians”, states Craig Beason, CEO of Renodis. In addition to sponsoring the flight Renodis employees participated in the “V-Mail” program, an in-flight mail call to provide the Honor Flight veterans letters thanking them for their service and wishing them well on their trip. The “V-Mail” program is a poignant reminder of how important mail service was to veterans while serving overseas.

The Honor Flight program is a nationwide effort to help surviving veterans visit their memorial in Washington, D.C. This Honor Flight included WWII veterans from Minnesota and western Wisconsin. The veterans left from the MSP International Airport at 6:30am on May 16th and a welcome party was held when they arrived back at 10:30pm. In addition to the World War II Memorial, the veterans saw the Iwo Jima, Korean War, Air Force, and the Women in Military Service Memorials, as well as enjoyed a bus tour of the Washington area.
