For the NWSS, conferencing solutions that were a "minor requirement" became year-round necessities.
The National Western Stock Show is a year-round entertainment arena that hosts 315 of the world’s largest rodeo, livestock, and trade show events. According to Steve Polson, the NWSS’ Director of IT and Telecommunications, rapid growth caused the organization’s communication requirements to explode over just a couple of years. Conferencing solutions that were once a “minor requirement” during peak months between November and January became year-round necessities in order for people at all levels of the NWSS to keep in contact with partners and vendors nationwide. Polson was looking for a conferencing vendor that could help keep long-distance rates down without sacrificing quality of service when he found Select. Actually, Select found him.

We stumbled upon Keith’s information through an email campaign several months ago. On a whim I reached out to see what you guys were about, and boy am I glad I did! The timing was perfect. I had no idea how bad we needed the services you were offering!
From the start Keith has proven to be an exceptional partner and a key player in our journey to find a new IT managed services provider.
He’s been a wonderful resource for us, so pleasant to work with and a steady advocate through the process, exceeding any expectations I could have ever wished for.
He’s introduced us to a few providers already and we are narrowing down our selection! I couldn’t rave more about Keith’s professionalism, his keen attention to details and his commitment to customer excellence.
Thank you Keith and Select Communications! I’m grateful to you and already a huge fan!

In addition to finding Easymeeting the most convenient way to conduct our conferencing, we must commend your customer service department and, in particular, Jess Unikewicz, who was both informative in her training session with us and instrumental in coordinating some minor connection issues with a conference partner. QIS, Inc. will be utilizing your service for many years to come. Thank you.

We switched our online meeting services to Select Communications several months ago, and it’s already clear to us we made the right decision. Select Communications provided us with a platform that was tailored to our needs, and thanks to their hands-on customer service approach we implemented this change across our company without a hitch. Providing a high level of customer service is obviously important to Select Communications, something we’ve found to be rare in their industry.

We recently subscribed to Select Communications for our company’s conference call needs. Not only are we saving money in comparison to our previous provider, but we also receive personalized service and support. A win-win.

Our group is very impressed with the Easymeeting tool and look forward to working with it more in the near future. We are also very impressed with the immediate service from the customer support team.

After many years working with a different conference call company, I finally said enough of the high rates and poor customer service! After looking around and receiving quotes from a few companies, I chose Select Communications! I have received great customer service and every time I have a question via email or phone call, I am taken care of with great care.

The implementation of the software by the Account Management team was very detailed and made the transition very smooth. The training and customer support that comes with the software allowed for us to quickly implement the program across many sales reps in short period of time. We have been using it for a few months now and there has no issues with any part of the package, from integration, to clarity on the calls, to customer service follow to make sure we don’t have question and finally to easy bill process.
Denis KennedyPresident Total Scope, Inc. – Healthcare
Working with Select Communications has been fantastic and a very easy transition! The materials that were provided allowed us to get right into our weekly conference calls without any problems. To be honest, I did expect a few employees to have trouble and ask for assistance, but this was not the case—it is that easy to understand! We have tried other companies in the past, but their systems and instruction layout were too detailed and caused more confusion that we decided to hold off on the calls for a while. Then, we found Select Communications – you have been wonderful to work with!
Katie GraverOffice Manager National Polishing Systems, Inc. – Construction
I have been super impressed with Select Communications. The conference calls have been crisp and clear, the price is right, and the support staff is very helpful. Switching your conferencing services to Select Communications is a no-brainer. I wish we would have moved to Select Communications a long time ago!
