Verteks Consulting Opens Pensacola Office


PENSACOLA, Fla. (August 29, 2011) — Verteks Consulting, a leading provider of voice and data networks for public- and private-sector customers, today announced the opening of a new regional office in Pensacola. Verteks, headquartered in Ocala, FL cited the need to offer expanded sales and technical support to its growing customer base in the Florida panhandle.

“We were recently selected to provide a ShoreTel communication system for the City of Pensacola, covering more than 30 departments and almost 700 users. Since that time, we’ve been approached by other clients in the area looking for advice and assistance with their needs,” said Verteks CEO Don Gulling. “With this new location, we can be a more effective and responsive technology partner for customers in western Florida.”

Verteks’ Pensacola office is located on the third floor of the City Hall building, 222 West Main Street. Regional Director Jay Smith, who has more than 15 years of experience in all aspects of telecommunications and networking, relocated from St. Louis to open the Pensacola office.

“Pensacola and the Florida panhandle have turned the corner after a few major economic calamities,” said Smith. “We’re very excited to now have a physical office in this area to help clients expand their businesses and improve efficiency through leading IT and VoIP solutions from ShoreTel and our other technology partners.”

Verteks is a premier partner with ShoreTel, one of the global leaders in Unified Communications platforms that integrate voice, video, data and mobile communications over Internet-based networks. Verteks is one of the fastest-growing ShoreTel partners in the U.S., with 321 percent growth in the past 12 months. Verteks’ overall business has grown 110 percent over the past year.

“Verteks is committed to helping our customers grow their businesses by offering comprehensive communications solutions that eliminate complexity and help reduce costs,” said Gulling. “ShoreTel shares this vision with a platform that is easier to deploy to deploy, easier to administer, easier to upgrade, and easier to learn than any other Unified Communications architecture on the market.”

There will be a special ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Chamber of Commerce to officially open the office on Sept. 14, and a technology briefing Sept. 15 at the Bonefish Grill, 5025 N. 12th Avenue. The briefing will cover the latest developments in Unified Communications, VoIP and IP-PBX phone systems.
