Tell me how Renodis can help solve Telecom and Mobility issues
What our customer say
“Before Renodis we were quickly becoming bogged down with management of our mobility environment due to the tremendous growth of mobility in our service area. Our IT team consists of limited internal staff, so we were really happy to find a trusted partner in Renodis. They took over the ongoing management of our mobility and we’re now ready to scale for growth as we continue to focus on expanding our communities. On top of that, they also lowered our operating costs by 17%. The Renodis team gets it, and we’re happy to have them on our side.”
“At DRC we are focused on a high level of responsiveness that gives us a strong competitive advantage in the markets we serve. As CIO of DRC it is my business to keep IT focused on priorities that “differentiate our business”. Our partnership with Renodis allows us to keep that focus while they expertly manage our communications environment the way we would if it was our business. They continually exceed our expectations in top-notch service, diligent economics and always have our best interests top of mind.”
Renodis has delivered 27% more bottom line value in managing telecom and mobile devices. We’re also getting phenomenal feedback from our internal employees. It’s great to have a rock solid technology layer, but you don’t need to do that yourself anymore. Renodis can deliver the kind of value and trust that you need so you can focus on the things that really matter to your end customers and employees. I couldn’t endorse Renodis more strongly. They’ve been one of the top partners that I’ve enjoyed working with throughout my 20 year career as a CIO.
“Thanks to Renodis we get more in-depth reporting, analysis, and control of our mobility area (including both spend and usage) while freeing up more time for myself and my employees to focus on other areas for our customers.”
“Renodis has been instrumental in driving down our telecommunications costs while increasing our service. It’s Renodis’ people that have made a difference. From how they leverage their relationships and experience with our telecom vendors to the quality of care they provide when assisting our employees and stores. Renodis is a true partner and an extension of our company.”
