Cambridge Chamber of Commerce

“We would have needed our heads examined if we didn’t accept it.” CEO Greg Durocher

Established in 1973, on the heels of amalgamation of three diverse founding communities in the City of Cambridge – The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce was formed through a merger of two Chambers in Galt and Preston with the Hespeler Merchants’ Association.

Why the switch to the NEWT Managed PBX?

For a Non-Profit Performance and the Bottom Line are Everything

A non-profit organization, the Chamber has two distinct divisions: The business division, focused on bringing local businesses together as a single voice helping to enhance the city’s economic prosperity.

Reliability in the communication with their members and with the general public is of paramount importance to the President and CEO, Greg Durocher, as is the bottom line when it comes to overhead.

As he said when Fibernetics came to him with the proposal to install the NEWT™ Managed PBX Business Phone System, “We would have needed our heads examined if we didn’t accept it.”

Cambridge Chamber of Commerce telecom bills went from $16,000/yr, to just over $6000/yr and they now enjoy the benefits of the latest business phone technology with 80 enterprise features improving efficiency and saving man hours.
