HighWire Telecom Joins CliftonLarsonAllen
Tampa — May 4, 2015 — HighWire Telecom, LLC (HighWire), a Tampa-based company that helps organizations significantly reduce their telecom costs, joins professional services firm CliftonLarsonAllen (CLA), effective May 1, 2015.
“Our incentive is simple — find billing errors and reduce cost for our clients,” says HighWire Managing Partner Kent Wright. “We are excited to join CLA with a common commitment to help clients build valuable and sustainable enterprises.”
This venture is born out of success. “Over the past few years, together, CLA and HighWire have brought telecom advisory to our clients. Joining now as one firm affirms our long-term strategy to align around these client needs,” says CLA CEO Denny Schleper. “This combination stems from our desire to seamlessly deliver value to our clients in the public and private sector.”
HighWire’s methodolgy is unique. “While many rely on software for analysis, we rely on our people,” explains HighWire’s Courtney Cress. “As a result, we are able to find deeper savings. We not only provide ideas to save, but offer implementation to make it a reality.”
The telecom industry is moving at a rapid pace. There is a growing demand for connectivity — phone, mobile, internet, wireless, videoconferencing, and other telecommunications are becoming more integral to business every day.
“Organizations need to keep pace with changing expectations and technology, while dealing with increasingly higher and more complex costs,” says Wright. “That’s where we can help ensure they aren’t paying more than they need to for these services.”
HighWire’s seven professionals will move into CLA’s current Tampa location, and will continue to serve clients nationally.
