Protel Communications provides clients with state-of-the-art communication technology, both hosted and on-premises, through a team of knowledgeable people in various locations throughout the country.
Since our founding in 1995, when private branch exchanges (PBXs) flooded the communication industry, we have always put customers first. Our customers are the reason we exist, and our employees are responsible for taking care of them:
We happily consider ourselves the 'stewards' of our customers.
We understand that successful communication technology depends upon professional, helpful people, making certain that the equipment works as intended and as needed. We recruit and reward some of the best talent in the industry, and we empower each team member to act in our customers' best interests.
The other REASON behind our SUCCESS and LONGEVITY comes from OUR leadership-not only here at Protel Communications, but also with our technology business partners. Our shared commitment to protecting clients' communications investment while giving them the best of breed technology has driven us to transform our business offerings. As a result, we were among the first to embrace cloud-based technologies, delivering feature-rich Unified Communications (UC) solutions to both mid-sized and enterprise organizations.
Today, many of our original customers continue to entrust Protel with all their communication needs. We respect and repay that trust by remaining true to our core mission: providing leading-edge communication solutions with personal, hands-on service, and great customer service.
"Protel Communications has been working with Riviera Oaks Resort and Racquet club for the last two years. Protel is a fantastic company to work with and has provided comprehensive service with coordination of demolition, IP telephone installation, and technical and training services. The crew is professional and timely. The comments I have received from my guests, owners and employees on the new phone system have been nothing less than excellent. It is my pleasure to highly recommend Protel communications."Alicia Shults

"I just wanted to communicate how pleased Shadow Mountain is with the new Mitel telephone system your company installed over the summer. We have especially appreciated the Protel staff that we have worked with over the past several months. The installation was very smooth considering the complexity of our environment with a large church and three separate school systems. All the Protel staff was efficient, professional and always seemed to be focused on proving good customer service. Shadow Mountain recommends Protel without hesitation to your future customers."Jerry Harder

"Lee Mather Company Realtors are in the process of rehabbing our office in Coronado. As part of this project, it was necessary to install new data cable and internal telephone lines. We want to commend your technician for his supervision and implementation of the above tasks. It was a difficult job because our existing lines were at least thirty years old and were done simultaneously with the demolition of the former office space. Your technician further showed his knowledge and experience when, after a frantic call from us when our contractor cut all incoming lines, he came out and got us back up and running in no time flat. Your technician, and Protel did an excellent job. He was knowledgeable, skillful, efficient, responsive, and he had a very nice manner with the client. You are lucky to have such an employee."Tom Riddle

"I just wanted to express my appreciation for the excellent service provided by Protel on the moving and installation of our phone system. In particular, I would like to thank your technician for his extra effort and commitment to getting our service up and running as fast as possible.

"The purpose of this letter is to thank you and your amazing staff for over a year and a help of impeccable service. From the day we signed off our new telephone system from Protel and new telephone and Internet service from Paetec, we have been 100% satisfied with the service that you have provided. As you know, we have four locations throughout Southern California that are all connected though the phone system. I must admit that I was a little worried about how smooth the transition from our previous phone system and services would be as a change is always a little scary. However, the installation and implementation could not have gone better. Your technicians were very knowledgeable and easy to work with. They were ready and willing to answer questions and did so with a smile. Again, thank you for your continued service. I would recommend Protel Communications to anyone and feel confident that they would receive the same exceptional service that we have at Walden Family Services."Andrea Kirby

"Our new conference phone is installed and working terrifically. Thank you again for the coming out in person to talk to us and surveying our needs to ensure we were choosing the right product for our phone system. As a long standing existing customer, you could have just as easily taken the order from me over the phone but the extra effort in coming out really makes all the difference on why you are a step above your competitors. All of you at Protel are so good at making sure the customer gets the service and support they need. That is why we have been such a happy customer of yours for over 7 years!"John Lucas

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and everyone at Protel for your wonderful service we have had to date, and continue to have, regarding our phone maintenance service with Protel. From October 1, 2009, we have had nothing but great service and communications with Protel, even though they do not have a local contact in Las Vegas. A Protel technician came to Vegas and made the switch over from our former firm to our current firm basically effortless on our part on our part, and it was a sincere pleasure in working with you.

"It has been a pleasure to work with each of you through the process of replacing our phone system. This project involved remodeling of an existing building, new construction, and connecting our three sites together. Not a simple task, but your guidance and assistance made the process almost effortless. In addition, to replacing the phone system, we had about 100 employees to train in using the new system. Again, the process went smoothly and our staff has embraced the many new features available to them. I appreciate being able to bring a group of people to your office to see the new phones and participate in the demonstration of the system features. They were able to take the information back to their branches and alleviate any anxiety over the change. With the size of our organization implementing change can be a daunting task. Your staff was supportive and available during the installation and transition and made for a very positive experience.
We have been using the new system for over five months and are extremely satisfied with the continued support and follow-up. The system is simple to use and easy for us to maintain, and when we need assistance, help is only a phone call away. Thank you for providing the tools we need to operate effectively and efficiently!
