HCWT earns top Arvada Business Award!

Hi Country Wire and Telephone was Recognized by Avaya Government Solutions as a 2013 IP Office Channel Partner of the Year

  • Hi Country Wire and Telephone (HCWT) is a federally certified member of the Avaya Connect Channel Partner Program
  • The Avaya recognition is based on sales and revenue growth and on new customer acquisition by HCWT in the federal market

DENVER/COLORADO – March 2, 2014 – Today Hi Country Wire and Telephone announced it has been recognized by Avaya Government Solutions as its IP Office Phone System Partner of the Year for 2013. Hi Country Wire and Telephone was honored during the recent Avaya Government Solutions Partner Conference held in Fairfax, Va.

The Avaya Connect Channel Partner Program is a global initiative that makes it easy for resellers to offer innovative Avaya solutions to customers. Award winners for 2013 were chosen based on growth in Avaya-related sales and revenues and for the number of new customers acquired in the federal government marketplace.

In addition to newly installed IP Office systems and National Parks and U.S. Marshall locations one new Federal customer added was an Avaya IP Office VoIP phone system for the Department of Energy in Denver Colorado.  "We responded to their RFP proposal and were selected as the winning bidder", states Hi Country VP Jim Whitfield. "What makes us distinctive is that we coordinated all elements of the installation.  We installed the CAT6 cabling, prepared a network visio of the design, conducted pre-installation interviews and site surveys, and then coordinated the installation and training of the system."
