NORFOLK, Va., Nov. 10 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Geeks On Call Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GOCH), a premier national provider of professional IT solutions to small business and residential customers under the trade names Geeks On Call(R), 1-800-905-GEEK(TM), and CallTheGeeks.com(TM), announced today that it has partnered with Tech Solutions, Inc., a VoIP provider for small and middle market businesses and government organizations in Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia, to deliver the company's VoIP services to Allstate insurance agents in the D.C. Metro area.
Tech Solutions, Inc., based out of Woodbridge, Virginia, is an information technology service company providing computer-related systems design, engineering, integration, installation, and support work to small and medium-sized businesses in and around Washington, D.C. Tech Solutions has developed a business relationship with national insurance firm Allstate, and Geeks On Call plans to join with Tech Solutions to offer their local agents IT and VoIP support.
VoIP (Voice-over Internet Protocol), often referred to as Internet telephony or broadband phone, "is digital phone service using the Internet, giving customers all the services they need for one flat monthly rate," said Mark Putiyon, CEO of Tech Solutions. "This saves businesses up to half the cost of regular phone service." Tech Solutions provides enterprise-grade voice, data, long distance conferencing and PBX (Private Branch eXchange) solutions in one package.
Through the partnership, Geeks On Call's certified computer professionals are able to provide on-site installation and support of hardware, ISP issues, Local Area Networks and PCs. Phones and firewalls will be configured by Tech Solutions, and off-site phone support will come from their network of trained technicians. The companies plan to expand the partnership to cover more of the country as the relationship develops.
Geeks On Call Business Manager Bob Beatty said, "The partnership between Geeks on Call and Tech Solutions will give our franchise partners another advantage over the competition by allowing them to provide another essential office component in a cost-driven business environment. By providing VoIP phone solutions in addition to our current services, our franchise partners will be able to offer a single company solution to all network, computer, service and communications needs for any business."
"It is with great pleasure that we have partnered with a classy organization like Geeks on Call," said Putiyon. "During our recent ribbon-cutting ceremony for our new location, we announced that Tech Solutions and Geeks on Call will jointly pursue the Allstate opportunity: Allstate agents have been given 16 months by their corporate office to convert to their own independent technology and find tech support elsewhere ... . We have developed a high quality and efficient turnkey solution for Allstate agents ... and take pride in helping [them] make this conversion a smooth one. Together with Geeks on Call, we will expand across the country and beyond the Allstate opportunity to offer solid, broad tech services to small, medium, and large business that will be unrivaled in this market."
