ADVODA Wins Award from Qwest

Greenwood Village, CO (January 31, 2011) – ADVODA Communications, a company specializing in leading telecom solutions, was honored by Qwest Communications (NYSE: Q) at a special event earlier this month. ADVODA, a Qwest Premier Business Partner, received recognition for Top In-Region Retention Partner with Qwest. As a partner with more than 30 carriers, ADVODA works with businesses of all shapes and sizes to architect and implement communications services.

“ADVODA has been a valuable partner to Qwest throughout the history of our relationship,” said Blake Wetzel, Vice President of Sales for Qwest Business Markets Group.  He added, “Their keen ability to thoroughly understand each client’s unique needs and position the ideal Qwest solution has led to high retention rates among their customer base. We are proud to honor them with our award for Top In-Region Retention.”

“We see this Qwest award as an affirmation of our efforts to get clients into the right voice and data services the first time. It takes time and special attention to fully understand what will work best for each company’s budget, performance and scalability needs,” shared Ron Dunworth, President of ADVODA.  “I believe wholeheartedly that it is this front-end investment that results in our leading retention rates with Qwest.”

For businesses unfamiliar with the model of a Premier Business Partner (formerly known as a Master Agent) with Qwest, it is essentially like an independent broker for insurance.  The Qwest Premier Business Partner (formerly known as a Master Agent) helps a company determine which solution is best based on their assessment and offers up competitive pricing and options from multiple carriers. Once a company selects the ideal option for their needs, the Partner manages the contract and order process on their behalf to ensure accurate and timely delivery of services.  Because Premier Business Partners are paid by Qwest, there are no charges to the business for this evaluation and assistance.
