C3 Networx Celebrates 15 Years

“It’s not the strongest nor the smartest that survive, it’s the most adaptable”

~ Charles Darwin

We’ve recently celebrated our 15th year in business and the milestone event has allowed us to reflect on our many successes, challenges, opportunities and lessons over the years. As the great Coach John Wooden likes to say, “When you are through learning – you are through.” So, it’s remains our commitment to you, that in order to maintain relevancy and value, we must continue to learn, adapt and grow. Having said that, this provides me a brief opportunity to share our evolution over those fun-filled fifteen years.

Many of our newer clients may not be aware that we originally began as two companies; Home2Office Computing Solutions, Inc. and Kreative Kids Computer Camp. Unfortunately, and out of necessity, Kreative Kids was shelved after only a couple years. The move allowed us to focus exclusively on IT consulting services.

Personally, Kreative Kids may have been the most rewarding experience I’ve ever known. Teaching kids cutting edge technology in a fun, project-based environment was a blast! It wasn’t only the students who had a good time. Recently, a former “Kreative Kid” now a graduate of Texas A&M, reached out to say hello via Facebook and thanked us for the skills we taught him – many which he still uses today!

Back to C3 Networx:  Our focus on consulting paid dividends and we grew our company over the years. Along the way we were fortunate enough to be recognized by the BBB with a couple Torch awards for marketplace ethics.

Today, the former Home2Office has now become C3 Networx. C3 Networx has two main divisions; Commercial Business and Government Services and, Home2Office (the former name and brand) now represents a new business entity focused exclusively on providing a “Managed Telecommute” within a rapidly expanding telecommuting marketplace.

With the convergence of voice and data, C3 Networx has introduced a powerful and cost effective VoIP technology as part of our solution offering. We’ve established and enriched our dedicated remote services and Helpdesk offering. We’ve even integrated cutting edge monitoring and performance analytics to remotely gather network status.

Over these fifteen years the one constant has been our dedication and commitment to client satisfaction. It’s rewarding to know that, in a very challenging and ever-changing tech industry, we’ve maintained so many client relationships -many over ten years.

Finally, I’d like to thank YOU. Our entire team is grateful for your continued confidence. We appreciate and value the opportunity to serve your quality organization.

Respectfully,

Martin Grunburg

Save Money, Smart Meetings with Home2Office®!

greenmtgs


Yes, due to growing number of inquiries we’re sharing the same article. (fyi)
If you’re like most companies, you have regularly scheduled meetings with your team. That’s both the good news and the bad news. If there were a way to reduce the number of face-to-face meetings while enhancing the effectiveness of your staff chances are, you’d want to know more about it.

Welcome to ManageH2O from Home2Office. C3 Networx is the exclusive partner, reseller and VAR distributor of Home2Office’s new, remote-office, portal solution. Benefits include:  standardized collaborative and connection tools, audio/video support/sharing, social networking, carbon offset reporting*, the ability to utilize less office space and, of course, happier, more productive employees, just to name a few.

If you don’t think telecommuting is ready to help you reduce your business’ operating costs, click here to see what two highly regarded authors, PhDs, consultants and recognized experts in distributed workforce management have to say in their recent newsletter. They are urging their clientele — including government agencies — to seize the opportunity and start reducing operating costs by UP TO 40%.

These thought-leaders have recently joined forces with Home2Office and believe our ManageH2O solution is rich with capabilities that businesses typically pay way too much for, whether it is ad-hoc  products, like Webex, GoTo Meeting; GoTo My PC or various disparate collaboration tools. Home2Office sought to integrate the very best remote-meeting tools and portal solutions, all within a standardized Web portal, providing clients a secure and affordable way to distribute their workforce while improving their internal communications and collaboration!

For as little as $19.99 per user/per month, Home2Office has combined features that typically cost our clients 10 times that amount. And, with each new version, we’re adding even more features. (*carbon offset reporting under development).
