Since 2000, Atlas Medical Technologies has been providing the nation with high quality, pre-owned equipment along with extraordinary customer service. With offices in Florida and California and operations around the globe, Atlas wanted to take advantage of the features offered by a VoIP solution. After receiving proposals from several vendors, Ronald Brewer, the President of Atlas Medical chose a Allworx 24X provided by CSM. “We were looking for an experienced VAR that had a national footprint and offered all the components so we would have a single point of contact for everything – dial tone, telephones, applications and data switches.” said Mr. Brewer.
In early 2008, Atlas moved their Florida operations to a new office to accommodate their continued growth and selected CSM to provide a complete communications solution with a PRI, two networked locations using an Allworx 24X system with new power over Ethernet (PoE) switches. The implementation was accomplished on time with no service affecting issues. The Atlas staff was trained on the new platform by CSM customer care specialists and they were immediately able to take advantage of the new technology and services. Presence management, being able to know in real time the state of other Atlas team members, has been one the most valuable features. “When you have employees that are distributed around the nation, it is great to able know exactly where they are and what they are doing in real time so we can communicate effectively.” said Mr. Brewer “It really helps us be responsive to our customers and reduces the time wasted playing phone tag.” As Atlas Medical Technologies continues to grow its business, CSM will be there to help. As Mr. Brewer puts it, “We knew exactly we what we were looking for and wanted in a communications system solution and its supplier and we found it all in CSM.”

In 1993, FMC’s C.E.O., Joe Delatorre, selected CSM to provide the first
of many telephone systems. CSM was able to make a business case for
the scalable and sustainable deployment of the Vertical Networks (then
Comdial Corporation) telecommunications platform. “CSM was the best
choice based on the scope of their offering and the low TCO they were
proposing.” said Joe Delatorre, “We have exceeded our initial
expectations by a multiple factor during the past fifteen years that they
have been our vendor. To say that I am pleased with our investment
with them would be an understatement.” Over the years, CSM has
upgraded and deployed new technology and services to meet FMC’s
need and timetable as they continue their success and growth.

“We were in the process of developing two new properties and we
needed to fully assess our needs with an objective VAR and have them
help us design a comprehensive solution,” said David Wildgen,
Executive Director of FCH. “It helped us to determine that a converged
platform was the way to go because of our present and future needs.”
Proposals were solicited from the only two full spectrum telephony
VARs in the area CSM and Verizon. Verizon presented the Nortel BCM telephone system while CSM proposed a Siemens solution with a
Vuesion SE platform. Priority was placed on the vendor’s operational
capabilities, service coverage, feature set and financial feasibility. After
careful evaluation, the decision was made to choose the Siemens
