Following an invitation by Executive Director of Kentucky Assisted Living Facilities Association (KALFA), Chet Mitchell, Unified Technologies presented to the attendees of the 2011 Annual KALFA Conference & Exhibition. Unified was asked to present on Innovative Products that Increase the Bottom Line. The conference was held on May 18, 2011 at the Hurstbourne Holiday Inn & Conference Center.
Unified Technologies’ Vice President of Sales, Robb Bashore and Sales Consultant, Todd Doyle; spoke to the group about how choosing the wrong partner for innovative products can actually hurt your bottom line. However, choosing the right partner to help your organization can have rippling positive effects for years to come.
Bashore and Doyle shared with the audience how important it is to understand your total cost of ownership regarding technology products and examining that cost over a 5 – 10 year period. They went on to emphasize how important it is to be sure any new technology product introduced to employees will be easily adopted and embraced by those employees. Equally important is the feedback from the provider’s customer base regarding the company and the technology they’re representing.
Bashore shared how Unified Technologies’ customers rave about their ShoreTel Communications System and how easily it has been adopted into our customers’ environments due to the simplicity of the technology for the end users. Bashore also shared how Unified Technologies’ Surveillance and Structured Cabling division is helping organizations protect their property and give proper access to the appropriate individuals based on the pre-set criteria.
Bashore also explained how important it is for technology partners to use their own engineers vs. sub-contracting through another provider. Additionally, he explained how critical it is that those engineers are also trained and certified on the given products they are installing and supporting. By adhering to both of these principles, technology partners will have the flexibility to respond to customers’ needs in a more timely and efficient manner.
