It has been a pleasure to work with Commtrol the past three years regarding a variety of telecom issues and projects. The City has partnered with Commtrol utilizing both their auditing and advocacy services. Regardless of the project or issue, Commtrol’s knowledge, professionalism, and follow through have been reassuring even through multiple complicated matters. Additionaly, the City has been able to realize substantial savings across several of our telecom accounts. I would recommend Commtrol to anyone in need of these types of services.

Working with Bob Glassman at Commtrol has been a great experience. Bob is one of the best communicators I have ever worked. Being without telecommunication for any length of time is frustrating at best, so when this occurs I call Bob and tell him about the problems we are having and he goes to work finding out about the problem. He tells me he will be back in touch as soon as possible and he does! Our problems have always been associated with outside phone line issues. Either the rain and/or other weather related issues have caused the lines to be out of order.

It is so reassuring to receive a return call from Bob relating the problems and hearing an estimate of time when we should be back up and working.

I am in the process of moving my business into another office location and I am looking forward to working with Commtrol to manage the telecommunications transition to the new space.

Since 1995, Commtrol has assisted the Dalad Group with managing a broad range of voice lines, DSL requirements, and internet connectivity for our building operations throughout NE Ohio. We have developed a complete trust in their abilities and guidance as they manage our account inventory and serve as our liaison with all of our voice and data connectivity suppliers. Commtrol has also been instrumental in assisting new Dalad clients with evaluating connectivity options, expediting installs and cutovers, and providing ongoing standby services.

The folks at Commtrol are knowledgeable seasoned veterans and problem solvers. Should an opportunity arise to consider Commtrol for your Voice and Data consultant needs, I would recommend them without hesitation.

Commtrol was one of the early adopters of the new fiber technology constructed in Medina County, realizing the benefits to their customers over traditional copper-based telecommunication products.  Commtrol’s insight into this new infrastructure provided advanced performance and, in many cases, reduced cost for their customers.  It is this type of forward thinking that positions Commtrol as a market leader in telecommunication consulting services.

Bob Glassman has been our phone system consultant and expert for many years. He has been accessible and very responsive whenever we have had an issue, a problem, or just to lend input and feedback.  He has been a great resource and a trusted partner whom we can count on. Bob’s experience and contacts in this arena have been very valuable to our company as we have navigated the phone/internet/connectivity waters and he has made recommendations that have remained technologically relevant over a period of many years.

The Federation has worked with Bob Glassman since 2006. Bob has been in the Cleveland telecom business for decades, knows the market, and has many contacts who can help get things done. We find him to be a person of high integrity, as his efforts for the Federation have always been focused on finding the best solution without regard to his own personal gain.

Bob was a great help in identifying and engaging providers for phone, Internet, and even television service when we moved to our new location in Beachwood in 2010. He has also helped our organization to recover significant credits from AT&T when appropriate. We greatly value our relationship with Bob.

Commtrol has helped manage our enterprise network for the last 15 years.  They are reliable and responsive whenever we have network issues to keep downtime to a minimum. Recently, Commtrol successfully helped us relocate our downtown office over a weekend, allowing us to be back up and fully operational by Monday morning.

I have worked with Bob Glassman of Commtrol since 1999. Since that time Commtrol has supported Lube Stop personally, consistently and professionally. Bob has made himself available to me 24/7. Commtrol assisted in the implementation of a cost effective internet solution ensuring an economical corporate Intranet as well as customer WiFi service over a single, switched connection. Commtrol has also assisted with timely reviews of our AT&T invoicing. During our move of the corporate office, Commtrol consulting support was integral in ensuring a smooth transition to a new phone system and circuits resulting in zero down time.

For over 20 years, Bob Glassman and Commtrol have been our trusted consultant when it comes to all phone system, voice line and internet bandwidth issues. We have continued to use Commtrol as they have consistently performed well and I know they have our best interests in mind. I also appreciate them keeping us up to date with reasonably priced, state of the art and useful technology as well as being available on a 24/7 basis (especially Bob Glassman who has taken my phone calls on Sundays and resolved the problem  the same day)! I would heartily recommend their professional service as a value to any northeast Ohio company.

Working with Commtrol was amazing.  They were able to settle our dispute with the phone company in a matter of weeks.

Virginia Schmidt of Commtrol was instrumental in our Solon Chamber of Commerce office relocation. Commtrol provided a smooth transition and Virginia provided exceptional, top-notch internet and voice communication service for the entire office, including handling my cell phone issues. I would recommend Virginia and her team to any and every company needing internet and voice communications. Commtrol truly provides cost-effective and outstanding service.
Jennifer Natale, President/CEO Solon Chamber of Commerce
Commtrol took control over our choice of phone equipment & vendor;  call processing to insure the best percentage of completed calls in addition to working with our IT company to insure the optimal results our  internet sales as well. Over the years, they have always been available personal, concerned and 24/7 regarding any issue he have had – voice, internet or application, including reservations & payment processing.

We value their consistent response and feel they do treat the Fuunybone Comedy Club Columbus like family.

Dave Stroupe, Principal at Funnybone Comedy Club – Columbus, Ohio

As a CCRC with complex and aging systems (and significant cost creep associated with them) we were at a crossroads as to what direction to take. Commtrol was able to objectively evaluate our existing systems—not tied to any particular vendor, service provider, or installer—and create a cost-effective design.

In the end, we saved substantial costs by leveraging some existing infrastructure and updating components within them, while at the same time, replacing some service providers/service plans for higher value options. We also converted cost centers (internet and phone) into a profit center in the process, and have created an enhanced experience for our residents and families.

I would be pleased to answer any questions related to our experience with Commtrol.
