Annese Elects Two Associate Account Managers to Focus on Managed Service Sales
Company bolsters managed services business strategy
Herkimer, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
Annese & Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that Robin North and Frank Cannistra have transitioned from their prior roles as Inside Sales Representatives to Associate Account Managers within the company´s Central-Western New York Region. Robin and Frank are both based in the company´s North Syracuse, NY office.
As Associate Account Managers, Robin and Frank will develop relationships with new and existing clients, with an emphasis on providing remotely managed technology service offerings for the small to mid-size companies within commercial and healthcare market segments.
“I’m very excited to be taking on this role at Annese,” said Frank Cannistra. “I look forward to the challenges ahead of me as I further my career at the company and help drive growth for Annese’s managed services business.” Frank graduated from Dowling College with a bachelor´s degree in Business Administration.
North echoed Cannistra´s sentiment; “Moving from inside to outside sales is an exciting opportunity. I look forward to leveraging the relationships and skills I built in my previous role and bringing new business to Annese.” Robin is a graduate of SUNY Oswego, where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History.
Managed service offerings are a very important part of Annese´s business strategy. The adoption of such services by small and mid-size companies is growing at an increasing pace. Managed services, often referred to as “cloud” and/or “hosted” services, are typically delivered across a public or private network and have become far more reliable with more diverse offerings in recent years. Small to medium sized businesses are interested in such “cloud” services because they represent a cost effective monthly operating expense approach to technology for their key business applications, in place of high annual capital expenditures and full time IT staff pay and benefits.
Annese currently offers cloud/hosted/managed services for wireless local area network control, network and VoIP system monitoring and remediation, unified communications, video conferencing, and video content management. Annese has plans in the works for a new virtual desktop cloud service offering as well.
