Dechert Selects vCom for Telecom Expense Management

vCom Solutions today announced that Dechert, an international law firm, has partnered with vCom to leave behind the complexity and excessive costs of ‘carrier direct’ telecom purchasing. With vCom, customers gain carrier-agnostic, wholesale buying power and a simple, transparent view into all of their telecom services and activity through vCom’s cloud-based application. They also receive a single bill for all services across the country.

“I needed to take a tighter grip on my telecom expenses. vCom’s cloud-based software provides us with the visibility and control over telecom spend in a single portal,” said Mike Shannon, CIO of Dechert. “Our key drivers in selecting vCom were the need to consolidate the billing of the many carriers we use across the country, the increased visibility and improved management of our spending, and the opportunity to optimize our technology.”

Dechert is a leading international law firm with 22 offices in the United States, Europe and Asia. Founded in 1875, the firm has grown to over 800 lawyers and has earned honors from industry publications including Chambers, The American Lawyer, Best Lawyers, Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters, The Legal 500, Benchmark Litigation and Law360.

“Law firm IT leaders operate under high stakes – they face little-to-no tolerance for network downtime, must provide secure access to massive amounts of data, and they have a demanding clientele of expensive professionals. The stability, efficiency and security of their network infrastructure are mission critical,” said Gary Storm, President and CEO of vCom Solutions. “With the critical nature of the network’s health, it can be a challenge for legal organizations to devote IT staff to addressing the cost of the network, managing the various suppliers, and optimizing the underlying technology. This is why vCom is such a great solution for law firms – we help them select the right telecom technology, gain visibility and control over their spending and inventory, and ultimately save them time and money.”
