"Allyance's direct relationship with several top carriers provided us with the best choice possible and great rates for our online business. Their invaluable advice and experience in evaluating an extensive group of bandwidth providers helped us select a top-quality carrier." Todd F.

"Initially I was hesitant to use a partner like Allyance. I have plenty of experience rolling out large scale voice/data/WAN projects and know it pretty well. Allyance said they could help me streamline the bidding process, keep my vendors in check, provide an objective perspective, help with the billing management, deploy techs for site turn-up and help to PM the entire deployment. Frankly, I thought it was too good to be true! Sure enough, Allyance has lived up to every expectation set and beyond. Their seasoned client services team is very detailed oriented, customer focused and has been an invaluable asset to my team and I. Allyance has truly helped us save time and money whereas we probably would have had to hire 4-5 employees to handle the workload for our major implementation. Thank you Allyance! You guys are the best!" Jeffrey Ratter

Allyance was amazing with their RFQ quote turn around time...as a result, we were able to make a quick educated decision.

"We've had nothing but the best experience with Allyance. Allyance was instrumental in our RFP process from start to finish. They effectively became part of our core IT team and provided us with a comprehensive, un-biased, easy-to-read summary of all the carrier’s proposals. The resource intensive due diligence Allyance performed allowed us to focus on our business technology objectives while objectively evaluating our options. Allyance helped our company realize savings of nearly 20% and stuck around after the contracts were signed and supervised a successful provisioning process. Two years later, Allyance is still with us and continues to manage our accounts and provide objective recommendations for additional savings and service improvements. I would highly recommend Allyance to any company who wants to save money on their telecommunication needs." Beth Galliher
