On Saturday, November 22, 2014, Global Communication Networks Inc (GCN) will sponsor The 100 Black Men of South Florida’s (The "100") 25th annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.  

Since 1989, The "100" , through their Thanksgiving Food Drive, have purchased and assembled “baskets” with traditional Thanksgiving meals for needy Miami-Dade and Broward County residents. To date The 100 Black Men of South Florida have delivered more than 12,000 baskets to families from as far as Florida City to Sunrise, Florida. This is made possible through partnerships with PUBLIX supermarkets, UPS, and Global Communication Networks, Inc. This is the third year that GCN will participate in this worthy event helping economically disadvantaged families and children. In addition to their sponsorship, GCN employees will also be volunteering their time to help package the “baskets” for delivery.

"As an employee of GCN for the last 3 years, I can truly say that GCN is definitely a family atmosphere and that GCN staff believes in giving back to the South Florida community, and to those that are less fortunate. It starts at the top with our President and CEO, Chris Palermo, and runs throughout the entire organization.  We all share a common belief that we are all in this together so let's lend a hand to those in need". Says Bobby Hall; GCN Strategic Account Manager, Board Member 100BMSF Thanksgiving Food Drive

GCN is always looking for ways to give back to the local South Florida community with events such as the Thanksgiving Food Drive, Boca’s Ballroom Battle benefiting the George Snow Foundation, The Dolphins Cycling Challenge benefiting the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the “100’s” Christmas Shopping Spree to give disadvantaged children, who may not otherwise have a Christmas the chance to celebrate the holiday.  

“The 100 Black Men of South Florida continues to seek strategic partners to assist our organization with helping service the overlooked. With the assistance of GCN, we will be able to serve more than 6000 people this year with our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive”, states Jonathan L Dotson, VP-Operations for the 100 Black Men of South Florida.

The overall 2014 goal is to deliver 800 complete baskets and an additional 800 turkeys with a stretch goal to feed 1000 families this holiday season. As a reminder, 100% of the proceeds goes directly to help those in need.

For the past few years, I, with the help of my wife, company employees, and friends have raised close to $100,000 dollars 
to support great organizations like The George Snow Scholarship Fund, The Dolphins Cycling Challenge to help find a cure for cancer, Catherine's Hope for a Cure to raise awareness for Battens Disease, and The 100 Black Men of South Florida's Thanksgiving Food drive.

Hosted PBX Solution Success

 

Pompano Beach, FL – March 12, 2012 - Global Communication Networks, Inc. announces expansion of our advisory and sourcing services to include hosted PBX and on-premise VoIP telephony solutions.

Effectively relocating business offices is a time consuming and complicated task that involves ensuring that important office infrastructure, like telephone systems, are up and running on schedule with pre-existing telephone numbers in full operation.

One of GCN's clients, a well known institutional financial broker that has been in business since the late 1970’s faced some timing problems in late 2011 when they decided to move their offices from Manhattan to New Jersey. The company was looking for an upgraded, VoIP telephone system that would enable enhanced voice services for their new offices. However, their planning process allowed only a strict three week timeline to get everything implemented and operational.

Taking all the client's solution needs, as well as an accelerated timeline into consideration, GCN was able to source the right solution out of a group of top-tier technology partners to initiate a successful and cost-effective project.  A well-regarded hosted PBX business partner successfully implemented the hosted PBX functionality, installed new programmed phones and ported over all telephone numbers to the new system, including the full trading desk and the president of the company, without any issues and within a two week timeframe.

This solution made their office move much less stressful by exceeding the aggressive timeline and was more cost effective than investing in traditional voice services.  In addition to enhanced features, their new system also allows the company to scale as needed, adding remote extension-dial users as if they were sitting in the local office.

It has been nearly five months since the new services were implemented and they haven’t had a single issue and couldn’t be happier with the project, their new Polycom 335 and 450 phones, support and service.
