Community Management Associates Upgrades to Cbeyond's Integrated Cloud and Network Porfolio
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
Inc. (NASDAQ: CBEY), a leading provider of network and cloud services to
small and medium sized businesses, today announced that Community
Management Associates (CMA) recently enlisted the Company to provide
a package of cloud PBX (News - Alert), enterprise-grade network and virtual server
solutions to improve CMA's communication and data management efficiency.
Atlanta-based CMA provides property, fiduciary and day-to-day operations
management services to neighborhood associations. With remote property
managers spread across its 520 properties in Atlanta, Nashville,
Tennessee, and Athens, Georgia. CMA's small, three-person IT staff faced
challenges providing steady customer communications. Additionally, while
CMA's server room was at capacity, the company needed several extra
applications to support its expansion.
"We had leveraged Cbeyond's (News - Alert) BeyondVoice solution to handle our IP phone
and data services, but soon recognized that we required additional
bandwidth to maintain efficiency and improve our customer service," said
Todd Ward, vice president of IT and strategic initiatives at CMA. "While
we were familiar with Cbeyond's customer service and support, we were
impressed by its team's willingness to create a customized package to
suit our needs. We felt comfortable that the stability of Cbeyond's
enterprise-class, cloud-ready and highly secure network would help us
After implementing Cbeyond's
Cloud PBX solution to improve phone communications between its
property managers and customers, CMA and Cbeyond worked together to
craft a unique configuration that would enabe CMA to host its data
physical Cbeyond Cloud Servers and Microsoft
SQL Server along with a 50 Mbps fiber connection to ensure a
seamless transition and end-to-end network reliability. As a result, all
of CMA's data is stored securely across Cbeyond's private network.
"Since switching to Cbeyond's Cloud Servers and Cloud PBX, the
interaction between our property managers and their networks is more
efficient than ever before," added Ward. "An effective IT partnership
begins and ends with trust, and we have no doubt that the unmatched
quality of Cbeyond's services and technology will provide the smooth
communications needed to serve our customers and foster growth."
"Cbeyond strives to deliver solutions at every stage of a customer's
lifecycle, and our progressive relationship with CMA is one example of
how we work to grow with our customers," said Brent Cobb, chief customer
officer for Cbeyond. "By connecting its customers to the cloud via our
secure, private network, Cbeyond has been able to help CMA streamline
its operations, accelerate communications and securely improve its data
storage and management capabilities."
