Increase in metro-fiber and cloud services sales key to achieving record sales in Q3 ‘15
ATLANTA – October 27, 2014 – Birch Communications, Inc., (“Birch”) a leading nationwide provider of communications, network and cloud services to small, mid-sized, enterprise and wholesale businesses, announced today the results of its third quarter 2015 organic sales. The company achieved the highest level of new organic sales volume in its history in the recently completed third quarter of 2015.
Birch’s President and CEO, Vincent M. Oddo delivered the results to employees at the company’s Q3 ’15 Town Hall meeting last Thursday. “This past quarter was the best sales quarter in our company’s history. I’m very pleased that we have again achieved record organic sales in the latest quarter,” said Oddo. “The individual and collective efforts achieved by all Birch associates in Q3 ’15 is remarkable. This record is the result of the strategic planning and direction we set earlier in the year.”
In addition, the company’s six distinct sales channels achieved impressive third quarter sales of metro-fiber, amassing consecutive quarter over quarter increases. Birch’s Fiber to the Building (FTTB) initiative continues to expand and the company announced in September that the current fiber footprint now reaches more than 320,000 new buildings across 12 major U.S. metros supporting bandwidth-intensive applications and delivering dedicated, symmetric Internet access up to 1Gbps.
“We continue to augment the selling strategy of our six distinct sales channels to build on the successes of the previous quarter, and the sales results of Q3 are a strong indication that our hard work is paying off,” said Christopher Ramsey, Senior Vice President and Chief Sales Officer at Birch. “Our ability to offer customers increased service capabilities, expanded product offerings, additional plan options and promotional incentives have truly differentiated Birch from our competitors and it is resonating with our customers.
Ramsey continued, “Our focus on the customer does not end there. We’ve positioned additional leadership to support our growing channel partner program and formed a new Sales Technology and Enablement Team (ST&E) within the company’s Sales Engineering organization to serve as a training overlay. With these changes we expect sales to continue to grow from this channel and others.”
