DALLAS, Jan. 26, 2004 — Cirro Energy executives have propelled the company into the telecommunications market with the launch of its “Cirro NetworX” division. The company will now offer electricity, local and long distance telephone service, integrated voice and data services, IT and network consulting.
“Strategically, it has always been our intent to offer telecommunications services as well as electricity, because Cirro’s management team achieved great success in that market,” said Cirro Energy CEO Tim Rogers. “Offering telecommunications services to our strong base of energy customers will add additional value to the products and services we currently offer. The establishment of Cirro NetworX will allow us to efficiently execute the next phase of our original business plan.”
The Cirro executive team has extensive experience in the telecommunications industry as the group founded and managed CapRock Communications. In just seven years, they turned CapRock into the premier Integrated Communications Provider in the southwestern United States. CapRock eventually became a publicly traded company and was sold to McLeod USA.
Cirro elected to establish its division by purchasing Network/nSight, a North Texas based telecommunications services company. The Network/nSight team has over 35 years of experience and provides customers across the United States with Network Enterprise Business Solutions including network management and network provider services. Products include local and long distance telephone service, IT consulting, frame relay / ATM / VPN networks, VoIP and integrated voice and data services.
Network/nSight founder Jon Marley will continue to offer his expertise as head of Cirro NetworX. According to Marley, “Cirro and Network/nSight were founded on the principle of building strong customer relationships by delivering superior attention to detail, competitive prices and customized services. Cirro NetworX will leverage our experience to help customers maximize their business technology investment by taking advantage of the latest network and telecom technologies, services, rate plans and products.”
Cirro NetworX will offer local and long distance telephone service, integrated voice and data services and supplemental IT staff. Services will include extensive network analysis, real time network monitoring and staging and configuration of network equipment. Customers will have 24×7 access to senior complex sales engineers who have advanced degrees and specialized certifications.
In addition, existing Texas Network/nSight customers in deregulated areas of the state will have the opportunity to save money by switching their electricity to Cirro. Some of those customers include Just Brakes, The American Red Cross, Straus Frank CarQuest, Cantex Healthcare and American Title Company. Conversely, many Cirro customers have stated that they plan to utilize Cirro NetworX’s for telecommunications services and IT expertise.
“Datamatic has been very satisfied with the service and savings it has enjoyed from Cirro Energy,” said Andy Kercher, Datamatic Senior Vice President. “The Cirro name has come to represent a high-level of value, quality and service to everyone at Datamatic. With the rising cost of IT and telecom services, we look forward to finding new efficiencies and cutting costs using Cirro NetworX.”
Cirro NetworX will begin operations during the first week in January. Products and plans will be available through the Cirro NetworX sales team and authorized agents throughout Texas.
“Cirro will offer telecommunications services throughout the United States,” added Rogers. “This will allow us to save businesses money nationwide, while also expanding the company by building upon our expertise in telecommunications.”
