Staying on the cutting-edge of technology starts with relationships
Pacific Summit Energy is one of the top 20 natural gas, electricity and crude oil trading companies in the United States. Managing IT for 73 employees in Texas, California and Virginia is a big job, and working with CCB helps IT manager BJ Griese pull it all together. Discover why a strong relationship with CCB helps Griese save time, money and stay up-to-date with the most important IT.
Over the years, working with CCB has saved Griese time and money, which is why CCB is always his first phone call for all of his IT needs. Instead of shopping for the right solution at the right price, one phone call to CCB means he can devote more time to meeting the IT needs of his company. “A relationship with the vendor is extremely important to somebody that’s in charge of purchasing for a company. CCB actually is my first phone call. Having that relationship with somebody at an organization not only saves the company money, but saves me time. It allows me to be more efficient at my job.”
Pacific Summit Energy relied on the latest IT to become an industry leader and is always looking to stay ahead. Developing a relationship with CCB helps Griese deploy and use the latest technology. “IT claims a very large role in our company, we probably couldn’t be where we are at without IT,” Griese said. “You have to stay on the cutting edge of that arena to make sure you have the fastest and most secure network. Without CCB, it would be a much harder event if I didn’t have them to rely on.”
When Griese calls CCB for his IT needs, he has the confidence that Sales Director Kyle Jolly and National Account Manager Kevin Rochol will take care of him right away. “I can go to Kyle, I can go to Kevin, if I have a problem, it doesn’t matter – those guys take care of me almost immediately. It’s fun to deal with the guys over there at CCB.”
