Goal: Provide High-Quality Voice Service to Customers & Save

“I had to reduce my costs for long-distance termination, and Commio was the solution. Now I can focus on other parts of my business and don’t have to think about our calls getting completed at the best price. It just works.”

Jeff Crews is co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at Eastern Oregon Net, Inc. (EONI). Like thousands of VoIP company CEO’s, his company provides digital phone service to homes and businesses, as well as operating a toll-free support line.

After getting frequent poor-quality outbound calls through his original carrier – and overpaying for every dial – Jeff began the hunt for a new provider. “We started getting some really bad audio problems and calls weren’t getting completed,” Jeff said. “We couldn’t get it figured out, support wasn’t any help, and we couldn’t wait any longer for their pains to get resolved.”

Jeff knew he had to find a solution that allowed him to take control of call routing across multiple providers, mitigate outages, and eliminate persistent call quality problems. “The idea of being able to pick carriers and set my prices of what I’m willing to pay across discrete carrier sets was key.”

Solution: Use Commio to Route Calls, Mitigate Outages & Save Money

With those needs in mind, Jeff began researching a new VoIP solution provider. “That’s when I found thinQ (now Commio) and your intelligent call routing,” Jeff said. “I needed to be able to adjust my call routing as needed, anytime, 24/7. Now I can go in and have total control over where the calls are going, so no more downtime. I knew you were the answer to reducing costs and addressing all of our carrier issues simultaneously.”

“Plus I needed ways to research problem calls so I could solve quality issues independently without trying to reach a support line that never returned my calls. With Commio, those tools are built-in. I can do it on my own, instantly. I love that.”

The most critical capability Commio delivers to EONI is its intelligent call-routing engine. “I’m able to see which providers are handling our calls, and when an issue or outage arises, I’m able to drop them out immediately,” Jeff said. “We’re able to get things fixed fast and your U.S.-based support team is always there to help us get around carriers that have problems. Fast.”

“I had to reduce my costs for long-distance termination… Commio was the solution. Now I can focus on other parts of my business and don’t have to think about our calls getting completed at the best price. It just works.”
