RESEARCH IN MOTION (Continued)

Completed major installation project at VA Loma Linda Hospital configured and networked MVS with three PBX; NEC, Cisco, Nortel, two Voicemail systems, Cisco Unity and NEC. Networked all three systems which previously operated somewhat independently. Results allowed end users to communicate wirelessly and seamlessly, by dialing 4 digits internally instead of 11 between PBX and voicemail systems. Customer benefited by reducing Telco and other systems maintenance costs of approximately $30k.

Contributed to internal Wiki pages by creating an internal team directory. This directory provided a database for documenting and accessing the team’s technical training and skills. Anyone needing a team member with a specific skill set was able to access this directory quickly to find that resource.

Persevered through difficult situation where customer was not prepared for installation, did customer prep work, stayed late to complete the installation and far exceeded customer expectations earning written recognized from customer and committed customer loyalty.

Identified, isolated, and evaluated system failures by monitoring system performance to ensure optimum operations.

While attending to a trouble ticket recommended ways to enhance and modernize this customer’s telecommunications and related data environments, as a result this Siemen’s customer “Acuson” replaced their existing Octel system with an eight node Siemens voicemail system generating revenues of over 80K.

Resolved a 6-month-old problem for Hitachi Global within 3 weeks through research, testing and hardware implementation. Resolution allowed Siemens to move forward with a pending customer project generating approximately $328K in revenue and reducing customer costs up to $60K.

Regained City of Salina’s confidence after being assigned this account, by resolving various intermittent system wide failures that had been outstanding for 1 year. Convinced customer to return to Siemens Resale for all their equipment purchases creating a ‘win back’ for Siemens, generating additional revenue of $10K annually.
