RE/MAX Realty Franchise Chooses EarthLink Hosted Voice And MPLS Solution In Consultation With Converged Network Services Group

Stocks in this article: ELNK

ATLANTA, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EarthLink, Inc., (NASDAQ: ELNK),a leading IT services and communications provider, and Converged Network Services Group (CNSG) recently teamed to deliver RE/MAX Allegiance, the number one selling RE/MAX company in the world, an 18-site hosted voice and MPLS network to serve its offices in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

CNSG Managing Partner Ali Niroo consulted with RE/MAX Allegiance to thoroughly understand their business needs which included replacement of an outdated phone system with significant maintenance costs and finding an alternative to utilization of a data center that required management by the company's IT staff. CNSG and EarthLink designed a solution that significantly reduces RE/MAX's capital expenditures while updating its services to better fit the company's needs.

"While working with CNSG, it became clear that EarthLink was the best provider to help us streamline our communications and scale for the future," said Brandon Gray, Executive Vice President of Operations for RE/MAX Allegiance. "EarthLink Hosted Voice gives us geographic flexibility, real time disaster recovery options plus a full-featured Hosted IP PBX solution without purchasing expensive equipment that can quickly become obsolete. I'm now able to deploy my IT team onto projects that will positively impact our business instead of monitoring our network." 

According to Niroo, EarthLink was the obvious choice. "Providing integrated access to all sites was a big challenge for a company this large, and EarthLink had the MPLS network access options RE/MAX needed," he explained.  "EarthLink's ability to deliver MPLS with Class of Service over a dedicated ADSL circuit allowed for lower network access costs without sacrificing performance. With EarthLink's solid engineering team and overlay support, they provide best-in-class network and engineering solutions for large enterprise accounts down to smaller multi-site retail accounts."
