Global Network Services (GNS) is a telecommunications agency and independent consultant dedicated to assisting businesses with the optimization of cost savings and increased profitability. Founded in 1993, the company has evolved into a full-service provider of communication needs within a variety of industries. Supporting more than 700 accounts across the United States, GNS represents most of the leading carriers and provides competitively-priced service programs for all telecommunications and IT applications.
GNS was honored to be selected by the ATHENAPowerLink program in January 2016. The year-long program was extremely beneficial, guiding the company through a rebranding of its logo and an updated website design. The program also helped improve GNS’s marketing and proposal processes culminating with the launch of several new products and services, including Hosted Voice and Hotel Guestroom WiFi.
At the ownership level, ATHENA was instrumental in moving the company’s focus from working in the business to spending more time working on the business. “This, along with the quarterly action plan created and monitored by the ATHENA team, assisted us in the identification and prioritization of company goals. The renewed focus on the business helped GNS stay on task and ultimately exceed its 2016 revenue projection by 19 percent,” Sue Messner said. The company is continuing the momentum of increased revenue in 2017.
Goals for 2017 include continued revenue growth through product expansion, the acquisition of new enterprise customers, and offering new products to its existing customer base. The ATHENAPowerLink program instilled the value of the quarterly action plan, and regularly reviewing goals will continue to help the company improve all areas of the business. GNS is excited about its future success and the benefits created by the ATHENAPowerLink program.
