Just another piece of feedback. You guys are awesome. We originally were a customer of Maverick Networks and when you purchased them we became customers of Totlcom. We rarely needed assistance from you but when we did the service was top notch. Better than any other IT type vendor we have used.

Thank you for your prompt response as always - verified!
— Troy C. — Alameda Superior Court (Oakland, CA.)
I just wanted to let you know that Totlcom's support was fantastic in helping with an issue we got ourselves into on the Friday before Christmas.
After our lunch office Christmas party, the bosses decided to let everyone go home early except for the employees that answered the ECC calls. The problem was everything was the phone system was setup that we were all coming back to work after the lunch. So I made a quick adjustment to fix this, and in the process screwed up the ECC line somehow.
I called the support line at almost 4pm and the team that was still working fixed our issue quickly, and checked the settings for the rest of the long weekend as well.
I really appreciated their work and it was especially important with our client that uses the ECC

My name is Stephen H. I’m one of Network Design Associates’ senior network engineers. We support SMB in the greater Sacramento area, as far South as Stockton, east as El Dorado Hills, and north as Woodland.
I just wanted to drop a quick note to you. I’ve been in IT 22 years, and my company currently supports over 300 clients. Suffice it to say I value working with other professionals.
Whenever I have a client with a Shoretel system (or any other phone equipment, really), I wholeheartedly recommend Totlcom. I do this primarily because I’ve been working with William for several years now on multiple clients, and have found him competent, kind, quick to respond, knowledgeable, and overall spectacular. The man is literally Jesus.
I figured knowing one of your engineers is doing a spectacular job in driving business to you would be something you’d like to know. Will’s a huge asset and I tremendously enjoy working with him. I fully intend to continue to recommend your company whenever I can, specifically because of him.
Have a great weekend Jerry,
VERY polite and helpful. The problem seemed like an easier fix than what was originally thought and may have been resolved quicker had that been checked first HOWEVER I understand why this wasn\'t the initial thought. Tristan was VERY helpful and seemed dedicated to resolving the issue!

I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know what an amazing job Shelly did to help us get our PRI circuit disconnected with AT&T.

Barbara really is a gem and I can't tell you how much I appreciate her stepping in and taking control of the situation with the phone lines/Ventura.

"Hello everyone, April 16th was a very important day for our business. Over the last several years we have had multiple telecom issues that have cost us quite a bit of money. Six months ago, we decided to make the switch to Integra. That switch happened April 16.
Because of past problems with telecom providers, I was ready for interruption, chaos and agony. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. My savior was Shelly Grubb. Her competence was quickly apparent, and I wished we had used her for previous telecom changes. Furthermore, she is incredibly committed to doing her job properly, meaning providing what the customer needs. She is detail oriented and thorough. Most importantly, her communication throughout the six month process was clear and effective, many times making me aware of pitfalls and offering solutions.
Moreover, every Totlcom tech that has assisted us has been competent and caring. For this particular day, Tom Moore and Cathy Cocannourer, were on the job. The switch was complicated. We changed voice, data, and internet for three locations with MPLS at the same time. Things weren't "perfect" the first time. But, the problems were diagnosed properly, tracked to completion, and not forgotten.
My experience with Totlcom on this switch is the opposite of the frustration I have experienced with previous switches. I am very, very pleased with the hard work and commitment of all involved, especially Shelly.
If asked, I will certainly recommend Totlcom. Thank you all."Bill Information Technology Manager Bonney Plumbing, Heating & Air
In response to a question as to why he would recommend TOTLCOM to others:
"Rapid and reliable support for issues."
— Russell – Oak Valley Bancorp
"I just want to express my sincere thank you for helping with this issue. I had my suspicions that it was beginning to look like the server, but was certainly hoping I had just a bit more time. We had already been working on a change, and we are going to ramp it up and begin the switch immediately. We are functioning again, and have back up plans in place. I moved to the cloud with our logistics program already, so it is primarily historical data that we pull from on the server.
In fact, I had already talked to Cathy about the possibility of phones on the cloud. But moving our data side has been my first priority and it has "poked" me into moving faster.
Again, my sincere thank you to everyone who had to deal with streams and streams of emails.
Truly, have a lovely Easter,

"I'm sure this will be a trouble-ticket that you guys will enjoy... as there's nothing to request other than I wish you all will have a very Happy Holiday season that includes the Merriest of all Christmases past, present, and future... and a very Happy and productive New Year!
The team at Totlcom is awesome. Although there were some trying challenges this year with xxxxx... your team always compensates for those challenges... and always comes through.
There's a reason why I remain with Totlcom. It is my call and my decision alone who I select to support us... and I take tremendous pride in maintaining my relationship with Totlcom... People like Phil and Phyllis have kept me in good spirits over the years... and have truly done their part to keep this relationship growing... Brian Watters is no exception – a man of the utmost integrity and business sense, he has not only been a fantastic supplier of solutions for me and my business, but a good friend as well. James, Cal, and the entire support team keep me functional (as opposed to dysfunctional) and in fine working order. How they do it and keep their patience and wit about them, I'll never know... but they are an impressive bunch, indeed! And although I do not like 'singling out' just one person above any other... I believe that Bruce is in a league of his own. I have worked with many technicians and engineers over my 35 years in business and IT. I can honestly say that the one person who has impressed me the most over those years has been Bruce. He has not only my appreciation, but my deepest respect for all that he has done. A hearty thanks to you Bruce, and all of the Totlcom team that makes your business the best in the industry!"

"I had a telecom switch die, it was replaced within a few hours. Given the quick reply and immediacy of the replacement I couldn't be happier with the quality of the service. Just so you know we've been very pleased with Totlcom as a service provider. I've worked with Cathy Cocannouer going all the way back to VoicePro and have always appreciated her patience because I stared literally with NO concept of how to manage this environment after we completed the implementation. As a result if there is anyone to credit for the lack of support calls we've required you can place the blame squarely on Cathy. She made me a MUCH better administrator of this infrastructure.
From what has been demonstrated she's an example of your staffing and you deserve huge credit for this. Once again we couldn't be happier."

I want to thank you for your attention to detail, and for being so responsive in getting all of the techs (including our IT person) on the same page. I will be really grateful when the updated contract is made available. We haven't had a good handle on what services we are actually using, for a very long time. It's great to hear that the savings will be even more substantial than we initially thought – it shows that you were careful in making sure we are using what was ordered. Your handling on the fax numbers was perfect, thank you."

Dear Mr. Greer,
The purpose of this letter is to recognize Cathy Cocannouer for the exceptional attention and assistance she provided on Thursday, 17-April, and to thank you for fostering the tradition of good, old-fashioned customer service at Totlcom. To give you a bit of background on last week's issue, I have encountered technical issues for the past several years stemming from ShoreTel' S inability to keep up with current technology [ see my blog posted 10-August-2010 titled "Burned Again"]. Jumping ahead to last week, I made up my mind to finally get things working with ShoreTel after upgrading most of my software (Windows 8, Office 2013, 64-bit processors, etc.).
What was expected to be an hour-long investment of time turned into a project that started mid-morning and concluded at 7:30PM, when my ShoreTel issues were finally resolved. This is where Cathy comes in. Cathy made herself available at all times throughout the day: bringing in Raul Fimbrez when needed, conferencing me in with ShoreTel support (three times), installing additional needed software on our server, and most importantly, supporting my goal to get the Salesforce-to-ShoreTel system working before the end of the day. To ensure that everything was up and running before I left the office, Cathy wound up staying on into the evening. Her willingness to go above and beyond in order to meet my goal of getting things wrapped up is not very common in support personnel these days, and her efforts were very much appreciated.
While choosing ShoreTel may or may not have been the best decision, I certainly do not regret selecting your company as our service provider. Thanks to Cathy, Raul, and the rest of the team at Totlcom for their exceptional customer support.

I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for providing a smooth transition to the ShoreTel system. Please extend my thanks to John, Tom and Xu. Everyone was very professional and pleasant to work with.
— Joe – Coastland Civil Engineering, Santa Rosa, CA
Bruce was excellent to work with. Once I had the access set up, the work was performed remotely, he quickly got us back on our feet. Also, Phyllis and Cathy were excellent as well. Our account was new (moved from Maverick Networks) but everyone was able to get us situated quickly.
— Tim – ZettaSet, Mountain View, CA. "The Leader in Big Data Security"
Totlcom's Remarkable Ambassadors,
I just want all of you to know that I could not be more pleased with the complete turnaround we have had with our phone system. I do not cringe when someone mentions something about their phone anymore and trust me I would want to run.
In the past, I'd start with one technician at Mxxxxxxx and I'd hold onto to that contact information for sure or they disappear and problem wouldn't.
I have to say each person that I have interacted with at Totlcom has been on top of their game, helpful and diligent to get us off and running seamlessly. Thank you.
John came today to complete the install for our 2nd suite and he knocked it out of the park. I LOVE the labels (pass that along)!! He labeled everything for me the Cat5's (Xu that's for you), the ceiling tile, down to the power cord so I am not confused. That makes things so easy for me when you are walking me through to reboot or something.
Hope you all have an excellent weekend. With gratitude, Lynn

— Sue – Amcom Data Processing Services, San Ramon, CA. since 2009
So far, so good. This is probably the easiest transition of any type that we've had. I hope once the switch-over from AT&T to Utility is completed ending our relationship with AT&T will be as easy. Thanks again for your assistance with this project and also the follow-up.
— Glenn – Mistlin Honda, Modesto, CA 24 years (1990)
Answering a questionnaire from ShoreTel about why they endorse TOTLCOM came this answer:
"The support is very responsive. They keep us up to day with the information in regards ShoreTel (product, software, etc…) via white paper and bulletin. Listen to customer via organizing small seminar which is always helpful specially face to face conversation."
— Mohamed – Herrick Corporation, San Bernardino, San Ramon, Stockton, CA
Thank you for checking up. Nicole has been working on fine tuning things, but all seems to be working well. We are continuing to evaluate improvements.
I do want to note that John Peterson was a very valuable asset during the transition. We experienced some unusual problems that were difficult to diagnose and were keeping our phones from working. John stayed calm during our panicked crisis, which was in stark contrast to the "carrier" employee that was also on site. John used some logical decision making and was able to solve the problem quickly and get things back on line. Afterwards, he was diligent in resolving fax issues for us as well, which really should have been resolved by "carrier" and our cabling subcontractor. But, John saw the need and took care of it for us. His effort was really beyond what was normal or expected. Please make sure his supervisors know what an asset he is.
Thank you again for checking up on us.
— Bill – Bonney Plumbing, Sacramento, CA
He was awesome! He checked our setup and everything was ok. We made a few functional changes he suggested. He had ShoreTel put a wireshark on one of the pc's, phone, and server. The problem appears to be network related. ShoreTel should have the results in 24-48 hours and then we'll reach out to Raul to discuss. We didn't resolve the issue regarding the ability to transfer and release a call to our new voice system. He was going to talk with one of your telco folks and get back to me. Having said all this we actually got something accomplished; much more than I've been able to achieve with AT&T after trying for 2 months. We need to schedule a meeting to discuss where we go from here.
Again, thank you
— Steph – Yolo Federal Credit Union, Woodland, Davis, Sacramento CA
It is a pleasure working with the team over there at Totlcom. Cathy and Shelly field most of my calls, BUT I have talked with tech support and had at one time or another, all of your in the field techs to the building. Every time it is a great experience.
The issues we have had that have been disruptive, long term, time consuming problems, were not at the hands of your company but the carrier. Even then, your team stepped up and helped keep the ball rolling toward a solution. The communication, care, and service on all levels... well it is exceptional. I wish my organization had the same continuity!
Any time there is an issue or I have a question the staff has been awesome at handling it in a timely and informative manner. With very few exceptions, one call is all it takes and I can move on to the next project. The products work, every day. We have had very few issues, and even when we have the solution was speedy and relatively simple. Hardware is going to breakdown, software needs updates, it is relative. However, it has rarely been disruptive to daily business functions.
Keep up the good work and hold on to your staff members!!
— Dalton – Scranton Law Firm, Concord, CA
Make sure you keep XU, he is good. Best ShoreTel tech I have worked with.
— Tom – All Weather Architectural Aluminum, Vacaville, CA & Phoenix, AZ
Thanks Cathy for seeing this project to completion. I'm always concerned that once the sales portion has been finished – the follow through doesn't always come together. It's good to work with you (as always) again, knowing you will make sure the promises will all be kept!

You truly went above and beyond to make this happen for us with this urgent matter. We are looking forward to a long lasting partnership with all of you!
— Rhonda – Ampla Health, Yuba City, CA
Some companies say they want to partner with you but Totlcom truly succeeds at that goal where most others fall short. At times they seem more like an extension of our I.T. department rather than a vendor. They have outstanding staff that is always eager find solutions to our needs. What also sets them above their competition is their continuing online education and lunch & learns.
— William – CKC Labs, Brea, Chatsworth, Fremont, Mariposa, Canyon Park CA
Excellent solution from the day it was installed! Easy to use. Easy to administer. Especially easy to add and remove switches &/or users. Great features. ShoreTel support resolves issues, which are very rare, quickly and professionally.

You can't better than the support offered from Totlcom. I've worked with more than a half dozen telecom providers… Totlcom is heads and shoulders above anyone else in the industry, including the giants… who, for some reason… just want to bullshit their customers into sales or solutions they don't need. This company actually provides a dead-on service because they KNOW their customers and their customers' needs…

Answer to a question about a survey where a product received a low rating:
Sorry for the confusion on the one answer that I thought I was checking I would recommend and mistakenly checked wouldn't recommend!
It was a mistake on my part and in no way reflects what I think about the outstanding service I receive from you. This e-mail should serve as your permission to correct my mistake and rectify my oversight.
We do appreciate all of your work. "
— Dave – Moore & Baker, Walnut Creek, CA
TOTLCOM recently received a powerful testimonial from a company who called us for Emergency after-hours help. We often receive nice comments from customers, and this stood out as exceptionally genuine, specific and sincere. Everyone really feels especially good when folks take the time to let us know when something went right.
By the way, Mike really is very helpful when he comes in. I like working with him. He's been our service tech for years - patient, very accommodating and explains things so it's easy to understand - just overall helpful and knowledgeable - and if he doesn't know he doesn't fake it, he calls someone to get an answer - I like that! So often we don't express our appreciation for those who do a good job for us. So I just wanted to do that.
And while I'm on that just want you to know I appreciate working with you too - you have been very helpful as well, never would have gotten the system up and transitioned as smoothly without you - really everyone we've worked with is pretty great - that's why we're still with you guys - we just love the quality and the customer service y'all give - so pass on thanks to all. Y'all are top notch as far as I'm concerned.

The following is edited for brevity only:
Hey Sam… if you want a testimonial from a satisfied customer… You can let your audience know that I'm using my (ShoreTel) Mobility software in the Philippines from a very remote area in the jungle…. using a "cellular" ISP service that is getting only 117kps on the download and 112kps on the upload with 235ms latency… and I'm getting crystal clear connectivity with a stereo headphone/microphone plugged into my IPad2 that is connected via wi-fi on a Cisco/Linksys E4200 router to a POE-injected DHCP-enabled wireless/cellular antenna (Smart-Bro is the ISP here). Although my Internet is low, the Mobility is 100% crystal clear. Out of 20 phone calls so far (lasting up to 10 minutes each), I've experienced less than 5% jitter only about 3 of those calls… and those were tolerable. All the rest were jitter-free… I don't even get that with Skype or other VoIP apps. Truly amazing. Of course, technical support my Jerry, Bruce, and mostly by Rich has been superb… as it always is with the TOTLCOM partnership… That's why I've kept my partnership going with your team for over a decade now… Just can't find a better, more personable level of service anywhere in the telecom industry!
— James – Otis McAlister, San Francisco, CA
Phyllis went over and beyond to help us with our needs at the least possible cost and I appreciate that. Dale was also very good in getting work done in a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable. We will be looking to use your company and refer you to others in the future.
— Audel – Zabe Mortgage Group, Madera, CA
Barbara went above and beyond just fixing our problem. She was able save us money and came up with a great temp fix until the problem could be resolved.
— Pam – C.T. Brayton & Sons, Escalon, CA
Thank you for your assistance Barbara AND on such a short notice! You too Dale! I asked this morning what was going on in Fresno and Lorri said our ShoreTel vendor Evolve was in contact with another company in the Fresno area and they did not want to help. (this is the way I interpreted it) When they said we had to walk Humberto through a burnflash & buying a DB9 cable, etc…. BAM I thought of you and said TOTLCOM will help us…. And you did. So this the short version of a very long subject matter and over a day and a half of no service. You guys are the best! Thank you very much! Have a great weekend!
Sam, you already know this, but your group is great!
— Gary – BI Group, Boulder Colorado, with locations throughout the US
BTW, the work you did at Mark Leas' office has worked out wonderfully. He is very happy, and we have had no problems whatsoever. Thank you so much for your excellent service.

John is always professional, friendly and patient. An asset to TOTLCOM!
— Sandy – Jacobsen & McElroy, Sacramento, CA

— Cindy – Christ Unity Church, Sacramento, CA
Letter to prospect looking for a reference on TOTLCOM, we were copied:
I am very pleased to give them a reference. They are a top notch organization and have treated us very well. I strongly recommend them and have referred several of our clients to them.
I've answered your questions below. Let me know if you need any information or would like to chat.
- How long have you owned the Shoretel system? I believe it's been almost 2 years
- Did the installation go very well? Yes the install went well – there was a hiccup with cutover (the fault of the phone provider, not TOTLCOM) and they took care of everything. I didn't have to deal with the phone people at all. The provided training for our group immediately and they also just came out recently and did another training session as we've added 3 people since it was first installed.
- Any major issues with the phone system? None
- Are you satisfied with TOTLCOM's services? Extremely. I have a technical support firm and do for computers what they do for phones. That's why I use them and refer our clients to them. They get it, they make it easy and they don't make me deal with the phone people (akin to us dealing with Dell or HP for our clients. We consider this "vendor management" and part of the services we provide. They do the same.
- Would you recommend Shoretel to us? Yes. I've been very happy with the phone system. It's never had a problem and when I've needed help on programming or questions about what we can do, TOTLCOM has been there to support us.
— Michael – TLC Tech, Sacramento, CA
I have always had great experiences with TOTLCOM staff, always very helpful and knowledgeable. Bruce is great!
— Catherine – America Ag Credit, 33 offices in California, Nevada, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma
Well, installation is complete! Just a few more tweaks and I think we will be good to go (I put an email into Raul and I will put another into Gloria). It's too bad we didn't get to see you this week, but I just wanted to say thank you to you and your TOTLCOM team. Installation went very smooth. I was quite impressed. The operators are still learning how to use the Communicator software, but they have caught on quick and they love using it (as opposed to just the phone). I spoke with my manager and he said that once we are at a comfortable place with our phone system, the next thing we want to do is switch carriers. I expect that green light to be made possibly as early as next week. Thanks again Kathy.
— Jeff – Energy Operations Management, Rancho Cordova, CA
Shelly is working with us on all of our telephone needs. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Every time Mike comes to the office he is very, very helpful. He is always willing to answer any questions and if I do not understand he makes sure I have a full understanding before I leave. I very much enjoy Mike as our technician. On a side not: I know that this was in regards to the performance provided by Mike, but I would also like to pass along that Carrie Barbosa always is a huge help to me. I am not really sure what her role is, but every time I have emailed her with a question, she responds within minutes. She is very helpful You have a great team!!
— Corinne – Mercer Foods, Modesto, CA
Couldn't have asked for better service. Every time I email with a question it has been responded to quickly and explained simply or the issue has been taken care of quickly.
— Chris – Gundlach-Bundschu Winery, Sonoma, CA
The response was quick. Raul (TOTLCOM) did a great job completing our software upgrade, although our oversight in running backups during this time created more work for him.
— Sue – Brooks Automation, Santa Clara, CA
I was very happy at how fast you had a tech out here and had our phones up and ringing so fast! Considering the problem at hand, exceptional service, thank you!
— Jill – The Beck Companies, Stockton, CA
Thank you so much for your training presentations. Everyone is up and running on the new phone system and we LOVE IT. What a huge difference from our old phones. Linda is going really well at the Reception Desk on the features. We really enjoyed having you and the technicians help us with the training and installation.
— Sylvia – Chang, Ruthenburg and Long, Sacramento, CA
Tech went to the right area from the beginning. Very satisfied, good job, thanks!
— Mohamed – Herrick Steel Corp., Stockton, San Ramon, San Bernardino, CA
Cathy always takes really good care of us! She is patient with my questions and really takes the time to understand our problems and then promptly fixes them. We have been really happy with all of our experiences with Cathy and her dealings with us. As the contact person for our firm, I have been really happy with the relationship that Cathy has garnered with me. She always responds quickly and politely to my requests and is very knowledgeable and helpful with all of my questions. I would recommend her service to anyone.
— Patti – Family Law Group, Livermore CA
Kelly Holback is terrific. She is a pleasure to work with. We also needed another technician to make a change and it was done promptly. In all instances, the response time was prompt and professional.
— Kyle – Carmel Chamber of Commerce, Carmel CA
Barbara was quick in helping me figure out my VM problem and got me up and going with no problems at all. I got an email from her with directions attached within 5 minutes of talking to her.
— Sheri – Shaver Lake Realty, Shaver Lake CA
It was nice to speak to a professional that spoke English. Carrie and John in my opinion represent TOTLCOM very well. John was very helpful and knew his stuff. He was pleasant to work with as well. He understood what I needed and helped efficiently. Carrie took my call and she was very helpful, professional and followed thru efficiently.
— Leslie – Millstone, Peterson & Watts, LLP, Roseville CA
TOTLCOM is great and your staff is awesome. You have a good crew and I rest assured you guys have my back and I still to this day recommend your company to others.
— William – CKC Labs
Service was requested due to extenuating business circumstances (office closure). TOTLCOM was kind, concerned and understanding. This response was extremely appreciated during a very difficult and emotional time for our business. Over the years, we have found TOTLCOM to be extremely responsive, professional and knowledgeable.
— Rita – Wxxxx & Company, (name withheld), Novato, CA
TOTLCOM has been very accommodating and helpful. They have provided assistance several times in getting problems we couldn't handle internally solved. They have been quick and responsive to problems and have come up with innovative solutions to our needs.
— Ray – Association Resource Center, Sacramento
As an IT consultant, we see VOIP installs gone bad, and its mostly because the vendor dropped it in and ran. The ShoreTel solution is ideal for companies without strong technical resources.
— Scott – Shandam Consulting, Sacramento
Good morning David! We are a go and I would like to reserve Friday for our install as you said it was available. I would prefer sooner if possible but I understand that it is short notice and Friday is GREAT! In fact, one of the reasons that we are choosing TOTLCOM besides the EXCELLENT customer service is that you can install it sooner than ______________. You are awesome!
— Christi – AIMS, Sacramento, Fresno
For a Sunday response, the service was super fantastic!
— Mike – Yosemite Pathology Medical Group, Modesto CA
TOTLCOM strength is its employees. They are responsive to our needs and take ownership of issues until they are resolved.

Your staff is always very helpful and understanding of the problem.
— Cathy – Quinn & Kronlund, Stockton, CA
Good Afternoon Ms. Scoto,
I work for N.C.I.M. & El Dorado Molds which are customers of TotlCom's. My position within N.C.I.M. & ELDO Molds is receptionist for both companies and one of my main responsibilities is overseeing anything that has to do with our phone system here in our office. While maintaining this task, I have had the "WONDERFUL PLEASURE" of working with one of your employee's by the name of "Barbara Stoddard". Barbara has really gone above and beyond the call of her job duty when/while helping me. She has helped me out in so many ways over the past months such as, helping me create all of the phone labels for are office and warehouse, setting up TotlCom Tech times when we need one to come in, and even though knowing that she provided me with "ALL" of the User guides for TotlCom's phone system, that if I even ask her a little question whether something can be done without a Tech coming into our office she not only will tell me "yes" but then proceeds to give me step by step directions and has tons of patience while doing so. She always has a great attitude and is definitely an easy person to work with. So I just wanted to take a moment of my day and let you know what a valuable employee I think TotlCom has with in "Barbara Stoddard" and how I look forward to our working encounters. Thank you & Have a Wonderful Day!!
— Jamie – NCIM & El Dorado Molds, Rancho Cordova, CA
Good morning Jerry,
What a successful project, everyone did a great job including you, Dale, Cal, Barbara, Bruce, James S. and Fanny.
— Rick – Fresno County Federal County Credit Union, Fresno (after installation at 7 locations, plus Enterprise Contact Center)
Thanx Barbara! Your team was fantastic today. Thank you.
— Bob – Teecom, Oakland CA and Dallas TX
Bruce, Thanks so much for your help tonight. We could NOT have done it without your help. Really appreciate it.
— Sandeep – Sparta Consulting, Folsom, CA, Austin TX, Newport Beach, CA
I was very impressed how quickly TotlCom had the survey completed and a bid to us. Overall performance is very commendable, onsite techs were very knowledgeable and understood over the phone exactly what I was wanting them to do, as I was unable to be on site . Also, the best part is they provided connectivity from our suite 102 server room to our suite 205 server room.
— Patrick – Provident Bank, Pleasanton, CA
Cal is always professional and knowledgeable. I always feel confident any problems we have will be handled correctly.
— Casey – Pride Conveyance, Hollister, CA
I'm heading to bed now…I can't believe you guys work the insane hours too! I have to say you guys have really gone above and beyond on this one!
— Michael – TLC Tech, Sacramento CA
In response to question as to why do you rate TOTLCOM a "10"?
— Robert – California CAD Solutions, Modesto, CA
A message to a fellow CIO from our customer, he copied us:
Fred: Glad to help out. I've been working with our telephone company vendor (now also my data vendor) for over 12 years. TOTLCOM (yes, that's spelled right) is located in California and is very well known as they have built their business one customer at a time and work hard to keep them. Shelly works out of Reno and is their primary person to stay on top of telephone and data rates and possibilities to serve their customers. Selling phone and data systems is one part… but it is also a useless attempt unless you have the service providers to back it all up. More importantly, because of the variety and volume of service they handle, Shelly and her team are "ace" at boiling it all down to meaningful metrics… meaning that they know which providers are crap and which excel… In my case, I've had a rather nice sampling over the past decade… and Shelly and I work with a creative package through Lightyear Network (for voice) and XO Communications (for data). The rates are competitive at any level, but if you happen to work with TOTLCOM, you get peace of mind… and that is priceless. Besides, like B____ Consulting, I consider TOTLCOM to be a partner of Otis… and that status is not reached until a thorough level of vetting has been done. That's about as high an endorsement I can give you for TOTLCOM… Besides, they can truly source the right solution for you and Beck based upon actual knowledge, not hearsay or sales pitches…
— Jim – Otis McAlister, San Francisco, CA
Thank you for all your teams help! I am a TOTLCOM advocate. Your team is always there when we need support and guidance. Thank you for the great partnership we have developed.
— Mike – Clark Pest Control, 30 networked locations, California and Nevada.
Their support is wonderful. They are always there when I need them, from the smallest question to a major issue. I know I can count on them to help me resolve it. As an IT Manager I have a lot to worry about, thanks to TOTLCOM, my phone system isn't one of them.
— Tammi – Global Inventures, San Ramon, CA
On a recent survey, this question was asked: What does TOTLCOM do particularly well to earn your recommendation?
They are an extension of the IT department. Working with TOTLCOM is like working with our own team.
— Mike – Clark Pest Control, 30 networked locations, California and Utah.
Very quick response time.

— Barbara – BRIGHT DEVELOPMENT, Modesto, CA (a customer since 1992!)
Barbara, Phyllis and Kelly are always courteous, helpful and in a positive "can do" frame of mind. We have been with TOTLCOM for at least the six years I have been with ROLANDS & ASSOCIATES Corporation and I can honestly say between the phone staff and the service technicians that come to our location, I have never had a disappointing experience, you have a VERY professional team!
OUTSTANDING service and customer care, Thank you TOTLCOM staff!

We are exceptionally pleased with the service that Barbara ad Dale have provided. They both have gone out of their way to ensure that we have our questions answered and our system running as quickly as is humanly possible. I would personally recommend the two of them to anyone. Barbara Stoddard is on top of things. She is very knowledgeable and very professional. Her answers to my questions have always been exactly what I needed to know. Her follow-through has been impressive. Dale took care of our issues as quickly as he possibly could, and he kept us updated on his progress. We are very pleased with his professionalism and, although we do not want any more issues with our system, we gladly welcome him into our business. He has a very professional sense of humor and that is greatly appreciated!

— Liz – Carmel Mission, Carmel, CA
Everyone I talked to understood my concerns and responded well to my potentially confusing request. Their flexibility in scheduling a service call, especially around my schedule, was incredible. The technical staff knew their product incredibly well. They had detailed answers to highly technical, product specific questions. Everyone went above and beyond to address my concerns. So much so, I was surprised. Very few companies are so customer focused. I am impressed. I have seen nothing better than TOTLCOM's products, service, and support. Thus, I can offer no suggestions for improvement!
— Scott – Yuba County Water Agency
We have always been treat very nice by the staff in the office as well by the field staff.

The TOTLCOM team has been tremendously helpful with our recent Jennings activity and the PRI outage that happened yesterday, and this level of support has been consistent for as long as we have had a working partnership with TOTLCOM.
Shelly was phenomenally helpful with our PRI outage.
Tim has been tremendous in getting Nordic IT critical things we need after getting zero notice from us. Randy is hugely helpful to us, as always.
All I have to say to the entire TOTLCOM team is "Thank you very much!"

Cathy Cocannouer is always polite, outrageously helpful. Give her a raise!!
— Carolyn – National Food Laboratory, Livermore CA
Cathy is always great to work with, and this call was no different! Super helpful, not just addressing specific issues, but also in explaining the processes behind what's going on. As to the possibility of training - I'd like to learn more, but I'm actually pretty happy with set up we have now. If I have a question, or need clarification, I'll check the manual, then email support… It gives me the focused information as I need it.
— Tom – Alameda County Bar Association, Alameda, CA
Dale is awesome. Very Knowledgeable.
— Mark – Controlled Motions Solutions; Bakersfield, Burbank, Chula Vista, Escondido, Sacramento, Santa Ana, Santa Fe Springs, Tempe
Sam: I do not know if you truly understand what a blessing your staff is. I have worked in large (Matsushita) and small (Twin Dolphin Games) with many vendors over the past 35 years, and your staff is a true gem. They are competent, thorough and most of all FUN! They enjoy their work, they are great at it, and that is contagious throughout the whole company. Outstanding service! Without a doubt you folks are the BOMB! It was handled almost before it was reported! May your leadership continue to shine as an example for them to follow!

(Special Comments From a National Account IT Manager, with Toshiba locations throughout the country):
Toni from the NOC was onsite at branch 142A last week and was able to work with a tech by the name of Tom Moore from TOTLCOM. She states that he was one of the best she has worked with and with all the issues we have been having with techs in 14HR (Roseville), we wanted to let you know that TOTLCOM (Especially Tom Moore) is a preferred vendor. When dealing with orders in this area (they say they go as far South as Bakersfield and San Francisco) please use this vendor.
— Adam – Kelly Services, Inc., World Headquarters, Troy, Michigan
And from Teleco, who manages this Toshiba National account:
Barbara: Can you extend our Thanks to Tom for being such a great technician for us and our Kelly Branches. See notice below regarding his work there with them at Kelly's in Rancho Cordova. Thanks again for all your help. It is much appreciated.
P.S. See now you know why I try to use you guys no matter what!!
— Teleco – Greenville South Carolina
I received an e-mail saying a ticket was created very quickly, followed by a phone call from Cathy. By the time Cathy called me, she was already connected to our system and ready to fix our issue. The TOTLCOM support team has always been great to work with. They are always quick in responding and for the most part, have been able to take care of our issues quickly. Thank you for all of the hard work you do to keep our system up and running happily!
— Brent – Bell Carter Foods, Corning, Modesto, Lafayette, CA & Phoenix, AZ
The network upgrade couldn't have gone better! Our post-upgrade network is much improved, and it has worked flawlessly.
— Mike – Nordic Naturals, Watsonville, CA, Norway, United Kingdom
TOTLCOM has been fantastic. Bruce, Gloria, Cal, James, and of course, Randy, have all been great. Raul and Phyllis have also been a great help. James was fantastic on the sales end and Randy has taken support and helping us with implementation to a whole new level. They have both been nothing but proven to be the greatest support and customer service I have ever seen, from any company. Gloria and Phyllis did a great job with the training, particularly with answering questions and training our new call center staff. Bruce was phenomenal with programming, and together, Bruce, Cal, and Randy made one incredible IT team from start-up to ever trouble issue we've had and so much more. TOTLCOM is nothing but a great company to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
— Amanda – Zeiter Eye, Stockton, Lodi, Manteca, CA
Tom was so great to work with. We have moved two times and this was the smoothest move yet. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and I would recommend him to anyone needing data/cabling.
— JR – Apex Investigation, Rancho Cordova, CA
Just wanted to check in now that we have been up and operational for a few weeks with TOTLCOM and ABS. We have been impressed with the support we have received, both via the support network, and in person by Brian McDermott. Brian was especially helpful and committed to getting the system operational in the first few days of the transfer from our old provider. He worked late, very late, with a member of our staff to program phones and assure that the system would be "live" the following Monday. We remain impressed by the service Brian and you all have provided. I look forward to recommending your services to others here in the Carmel business community.
— Malone Hodges – Carmel, CA
Randy was very helpful and knowledgeable, and helped provide technical and "real world" advice beyond just installing a phone switch.
— Scott – Shandam Consulting, San Francisco
Excellent Service from Barbara! Thank You!
— Betty – Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Protection District

Cathy is the best! She always communicates on the progress of the ticket and follows through.

— Chris – Interim, Monterey
Thank you very much for working on our phone system so late last night to get everything up and running for us.

— Cecilia – HAF Properties, Sunnyvale CA
Raul did a good job relaying info to me here in Colorado and working in the office with BI personnel. Everything worked and he double checked again with our people there in the office before he left.

LETTER OF COMMENDATION
Our office recently purchased a new phone system through your company and I wanted to take a moment to commend Dale Hill. I have worked with him off and on over the past 8+ years. He has been a joy to work with during this new transition. He is very professional, extremely helpful and probably the most important is his patience with me and my staff. He has helped me identify what our needs are and then set out to help us accomplish that goal. To date, we are up and running with our new system and are very pleased. I believe you are fortunate to have an employee like Dale Hill working for your organization. I will be pleased to recommend Dale Hill and your company to other businesses. Sincerely,
— Sue – Visalia Ob/Gyn Medical Associates, Visalia, CA
Thank you for the quick response. This tells me, as an end-user, you actually read these and they don't wind up in the "electronic drawer". Since this is the case please allow me to express myself about your employees. I started working with James Shaw and Randy Taylor about 1-1/2 years ago when we went out to bid on a new phone system for my project. Albeit we have a difficult and complicated history on this Shoretel installation due to complications with our High-Voltage Isolation and Shoretel's input sensitivity. James and particularly Randy have been invaluable resources and when I call to ask a question I feel completely confident in their responses. This is why I continue to use TOTLCOM. I was recently brought onto the job in Lodi less than two weeks prior to the manager's "go live" date. In quick response James and Randy came out to the site, performed the walkthrough, and provided a quote, all within two days. The job was completed, with many change orders and the on-site crew had no issues with the changes. I have developed a professional relationship with Randy and James and trust them, not only with my system, but enough to recommend them to my counter-parts within NCPA. Sam, these guys are great and I appreciate their time. Please pass along my appreciation to them.
— Tim – Northern California Power Agency, Roseville, California
Sam … As usual Shelly and your crew were excellent ! I continue to have great confidence in TOTLCOM. Shelly has "saved us" time and time again. Jerry and his staff are good to work with.. No complaints … Just don't go away until I retire !! I believe sincerely that Shelly has been a large part of taking our business to a new level…. She paid attention to our business and its needs, after which she made suggestions about equipment and applications that would benefit us… I attended a TOTLCOM "seminar" in the Sacramento area that helped me with my understanding of your company and the product you had to offer… Jerry and his support team spent a lot of time helping us through the journey from where we were to where we needed to be… Not an easy journey I might add, as we now have grown to 20 locations… Unlike other vendors I have dealt with in the past, all of TOTLCOM Modesto consulted, trained, brain stormed, etc… on nearly a daily basis and never once made us feel like they were tired of dealing with us…. TOTLCOM has saved us money on our monthly expenses while guiding us to equipment that allows us to give better customer service and to give more/better "tools" to our agents to assist them in doing the best job they can do… Shelly, Jerry and their team continues to give us suggestions on how we might do things differently/better and keeps us informed of new equipment/services that have become or will be available… TOTLCOM did not take our money and run… TOTLCOM has cared about us and continues to care for us on a daily basis… So thanks Sam for your well trained team and much appreciated Modesto location… If all your locations are as dedicated as Modesto you must have a very productive business with lots of happy clients.
— Lauren – Century 21 M&M Realty, Modesto, CA
Hi, Sam. I'm sending this message to acknowledge a job well done. Shelly did a fantastic job on our PRI project! She handled the intricate coordination of TOTLCOM, TelePacific, AT&T, Smith Telecommunications and Nordic Naturals with a great deal of skill, organization and patience. In particular, she was very patient with my seemingly endless questions and fact checking throughout the project. With our PRI phone service, we are forging ahead with improved phone technology that will save us a considerable amount of money on our monthly phone bill.

"Jerry deserves a raise!! great job - fast and efficient. He made up for the problem with the 800#. Thanks Jerry! You did a GREAT job!

Thank you for taking the time out to e-mail me, that just put the "s" in service."

"Thanks for the follow up. We are big fans of the Shoretel system and it would be great to be able to extend the functionality of the system to our Iphone users. Especially if they could connect to the system on wifi when they are in the building. I know that Shoretel will get there eventually. The new 9.2 software is a great improvement over version 7.5 that we were running. They have really improved the interface, ease of use, and addressed some annoyances in the old software. Cathy was a big help getting us upgraded and making sure everything went smoothly. Thanks for all of the support!"

"We had one question that took almost 3 minutes for them to find the answer to… That was the long hard one… These guys are fantastic! I wish all our vendors were as prompt and polite as TOTLCOM. TOTLCOM had other systems the could have sold us, but when we saw the hands on demo and each and every question answered by Randy and Brian, we were as sold on ShoreTel as they are! Outstanding support, install and training! Questions answered right away."

"TOTLCOM has provided Pacific Plug & Liner outstanding support for our phone system over a period of several years. We recently had a problem with our wireless handheld devices locally on site that was slightly out of TOTLCOM's core area of expertise. Rather than just say, "I'm sorry, we don't work on that", our Sales Representative, Brian McDermott went out of his way to find us local network support to solve the problem. Because our Corporate offices are in Washington, his efforts saved my network engineer an expensive, unnecessary trip to our Watsonville facility. As a Customer, I really appreciated his willingness to go above and beyond to help us out."

Our network is now a smooth-running thing and is greatly enhanced. Thanks again!"

"After spending a year comparing seven different vendors and products we are more than pleased that we went with TOTLCOM. They proved that a perfect solution for our company was more important to them than the perfect sale. TOTLCOM went way beyond what was expected during the installation, training, support, and still almost a year after they are right there by our sides to support our success with the products we purchased as more of a partner than a vendor. The IP system we purchased was tailored to our needs and has increased productivity, manageability, and flexibility for our company and TOTLCOM has proved to be a company of integrity, competence, dependability, dedication to their customers, and just plain fun to work with!"
— William Brandle – Information Technology Manager, CKC Laboratories, Inc. — Brea, Chatsworth, Fremont, Mariposa, Canyon Park, CA
"Mr. Greer – I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a wonderful, efficient, superlative employee you have in Barbara Stoddard. She has, without exception, taken extremely good care of all of our requests and needs, and has done them in more than a timely manner. I sincerely believe that she is the best representative I've ever dealt with anywhere and just wanted you to know what an asset she is to your company. She makes my life easier and I only wish there were clones of her and that everyone took such pride in their jobs and did them with such efficiency."
— Janet Glenn – Hunt & Jeppson — Roseville, CA

Sam — We have been with TOTLCOM for nine, going on ten years now. Phil is a great rep. Phyllis and the others there at TOTLCOM have been THE BEST I've dealt with in 27 years. The recommendation to bring in Brian Watters a few years back when it came to data was just plain Synergy. You just can't get better data service or solution than what Brian's team delivers! I could not ask (from an IT Director's standpoint) for a better overall data/voice solution. These guys are dedicated not only to customer service, but creating good vendor-customer relationships. This I value more than the T-1 and voice solutions they provide. When you add in a touch of class by having someone of of such high quality as Phyllis, you just can't beat that kind of deal in today's business. When you employ hard working people like Shelly who work relentlessly until a solution is delivered, you become successful by earning a solid corporate reputation and forge an image that is beyond compromise. I don't know how to put a price tag on the personality, service, commitment and uptime you guys deliver. AT&T/SBC can't deliver the kind of service and support you guys do every day of the week. You represent stability, reliability, a can do company with a record of accomplishments. Yes, please feel free to use me as a reference!
