Pro Telecom Solutions an Atlanta Data Cabling Company continued serving current and new Alabama customers.

 

 

 

It is not rare that Pro Telecom Solutions runs a few times a week to Alabama to attend our current customers. The proximity to that State, our office strategically located and close to downtown Atlanta, makes it easier to serve them as they need.

  

A few days ago we dispatched a fiber service call in Jacksonville AL, a very nice little town surrounded with unique scenery. Our GPS took us on the back road, so even while we are working, we could enjoy the beauty of that town. A lot of farms, cows, horses, gorgeous houses, the Jacksonville State University, students and college dorms; made of that place a pretty work road trip.

  

Now, back in business! When we arrived to our service call we found a mixed bag of major fiber problems….single-mode patch cables in multi-mode fiber, single mode connectors installed on multi-mode fiber, etc. etc. However our fiber install technician was able to make a temporary fix in order to restore internet service to the building.  A major fiber up-grade will be necessary to make it work as it should be.

  

Birmingham the largest city in Alabama hosting Universities, Colleges, Community Colleges and Students Housing makes our business even more interesting when planning, designing and installing voice and data cabling, wireless access point, fiber optics and surveillance security systems…. YES one stop shopping for your low-voltage cabling solutions needs.

  

I am particularly proud of our MDU- Multiple Family Units (Apartments & Condominiums) clients, in Birmingham Alabama, that for many years we have served them with Cable TV up-grades helping them to reach the fast moving technology.

  

Whether you are Multiple Family Units (Apartments & Condominiums), Senior Living & Assisted Living Community, University & Student Housing, Hospital and Dentist Office, Bar & Restaurant, Government and Military Facility, Hotel & Motel, Marina, Resort, and RV Park or a Gym, Pro Telecom Solutions can assist you with any of your telecommunications needs from a fiber optics repair and design to providing Dish Network Business as the best entertainment at the best value in the market.

  

I always hear from our new customers, how difficult is to find a local contractor with knowledge, experience and capable of completing the job the first time. If you are in Mobile, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Phoenix City and Montgomery Alabama or surrounding cities, with need of telecommunications assistance, please give us a call and let us know how we can help…

Why are some contractors licensed and others not? Does it matter?

The old saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is," can be especially true when hiring a contractor. Competition is fierce in the construction business and the consumer is in a good position to demand quality work at a fair price. But skimping on credentials is not the best way to get a job done cheaply. Hiring a contractor that is not licensed and insured places the consumer at significant risk and can cost thousands more in the long run.

Ready to Renew your Women Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification?

 

About WBE Certification Renewals with The National Women Business Owners Corporation

Download NWBOC's WBE Re-certification Form and Affidavit in pdf format
Download NWBOC's WBE Re-certification Form and Affidavit in Word format

The first time you are certified with NWBOC your certification remains valid for one year. After that period of time an annual re-certification is required in order to remain a certified Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) through NWBOC. No additional documentation is necessary unless there have been changes in the ownership, control, business structure, name of your company, etc. since you were last certified or re-certified.

If none of the above changes are relevant, simply complete the Affidavit (download link is above) and send along with a copy of the company's most recently filed tax return (including K-1s, if applicable). Also send the re-certification fee according to business size:
$200 fee if gross sales are under $2,000,000
$300 fee if gross sales are over $2,000,000

If changes in your business have occurred, record them on the Affidavit (which is the last page of this document.) The following information is required:

  • If any changes in company structure, (i.e. corporation, limited liability corporation, etc.), ownership and/or control, officer/directors or other changes (i.e. name, address, etc.) have occurred during the past year, please submit the legal documentation to support the changes.
  • Documentation should include minutes, tax return, purchase agreements, stock certificates (if applicable).
  • If commodity or service has changed, please change the appropriate codes on this paperwork.
  • If ownership changes have occurred, a new application may be necessary.

 Remember to sign and date the Affidavit! Re-certification is not automatic.

 It is vital that you send in the re-certification materials prior to your expiration date. It is your responsibility to comply with requests for information and submit documentation in a prompt manner. It is not the responsibility of NWBOC to send multiple reminder notices of recertification dates. If re-certification is not received within thirty (30) days of the renewal date, the company will be removed from the active certified WBE list and the e-commerce MarketPlace. A reinstatement fee of $100 will be imposed for re-certifications received after the certification expiration date. In addition, a new application and/or additional materials may also be required.

The re-certification materials that you need to send to us (mailing address is below):

  1. Download and complete the re-certification application with signed affidavit
  2. A copy of latest tax return
  3. Any necessary documents, as indicated in the instruction sheet of the application
  4. Payment of your renewal fee
