The main problem we’re looking to solve is consolidation. We were using multiple companies, multiple platforms that we wanted to consolidate with a single provider. We were dealing with inefficiencies. It took more people, more hours, to accomplish less than what they can do with a consolidated platform.
Before IntelePeer, I wore all the hats to five or six different platforms that we had to touch. The consolidation of services through IntelePeer, I didn’t have to wear these hats anymore. We transitioned in our services and duties here at Life Storage and I became director – so our telecom team is now managing all those systems under one roof.
