David Sculthorpe, CEO, Heart and Stroke Foundation
The Heart and Stroke Foundation, is a volunteer-based charity that leads in eliminating heart disease and stroke, reducing their impact through preventing disease, saving lives and promoting recovery. Every dollar counts; we are very careful stewards of our donors’ gifts. By working with Gurmit Gill at Costek, we were able to save hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in telecommunications costs over the next five years. Gurmit’s listening skills and strategic approach helped him to understand our organization and our unique needs after amalgamating 10 organizations into one national Foundation. His in-depth knowledge of the telecommunications industry ensured that we were asking all the right questions of potential vendor partners, and negotiating effectively. We are extremely pleased with the results. Costek’s help in managing our telecommunications bid will allow the Foundation to devote significant additional dollars to tangibly improve the lives of every Canadian family, every day. I would recommend Costek to any business looking to optimize its telecommunications costs.

We have one of the brightest IT team and we strive for excellence in anything we do. In 2013 we decided to optimize our Telecom expenditure and that’s when we engaged the team at Costek. We hired Costek with the aim to bring the best tools, and expertise to our disposal so that we could streamline our telecom spend while our internal team continued to focus on other key priorities. They not only did a fantastic job, but did so with minimal involvement from our side.
Costek was able to significantly reduce our monthly spend, and they also helped simplify the pricing structure for ongoing easy management. We learned a lot from their engagement and we are extremely pleased and thrilled with the excellent work they have done for us. They bring high level of expertise to the table and were easy to work with and as a result have earned a lot of our respect.
We wish them all the best and would highly recommend them to any business who are conscious about their spending bottom line of their organization.
Gino Saccone, Controller, St. Michael's College School
My name is Gino Saccone and I am the controller at St. Michael's College School, Toronto.
We offer one of the finest education program with a mission to teach Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge. We maintain a leading edge telecom infrastructure for our faculty and students. When we came across Costek and their value proposition to lower our telecom costs by 30% to 50%, it was hard to believe. However, there was nothing to lose, as their model works on a gain share basis with a no savings no fee policy. Though skeptic, we decided to engage them to explore the possibility. After their analysis, they not only helped us save a significant amount on our telecom spend , but also increased the value of our services. They did so with a minimal involvement from our side.
We are extremely pleased with what Costek has done for us and we would highly recommend their services. They are very professional, responsive and great to work with.
