York Telecom Wins Five-Year Extension of GSA Contract


May 02, 2011

York Telecom Corporation, a global provider of visual communications services and solutions, announced it has won a five-year extension of their IT GSA contract (GS-03F-0493K).

The current extension will represent 15 consecutive years of York Telecom managing business with the Federal Government.

This contract is considered a victory for York Telecom. The company’s growth is mainly due to its business with various departments of the Federal Government. The extension will offer more opportunities to continue and establish new and existing contacts and do business with the Federal Government and offer top quality service.

“This extension is an honor and commitment that we do not take lightly and speaks volumes of the relationship York has established with all departments of the Federal Government these past 25 plus years,” said David Phillips, president & COO of York Telecom, in a statement.

“It also solidifies the added value we bring to them with our visual communication services every single day. Each and every one of York's dedicated employees should take a sense of pride in knowing that their efforts were a part of us being awarded this extension,” Phillips added.

Company officials said GSA contracts can be difficult to obtain, while extensions of those contracts can be more difficult. York Telecom GSA contracts represent anywhere from 15 to 20 thousand items and opportunities for doing business with the Federal Government and our contracts are some of the most robust offerings on GSA.

York Telecom offers total managed conferencing services, consulting, integration and operational services, professional video production and postproduction for visual communication solutions such as Videoconferencing, Streaming Media, Video on Demand, Digital Signage, Custom Media Studio and Room Design and Multimedia Network Management.

Recently, York Telecom entered into a partnership with Savvis  to provide a complete Cisco TelePresence service to enterprise customers. While installation, management and maintenance aspects will be managed by York Telecom, the network components will be provided by Savvis.
