What our clients have to say

  • Jean Kerr
    We have been utilizing the services of UNITEL HR Solutions a lot and appreciate them. From the outstanding support via phone when we have questions to the new safety and compliance content everything has been great. The HR and safety training modules are easy to use and I recently attended my first webinar and continue to be impressed. This is a valuable resource that I’d recommend to any size communication company. Thank you WTA for your partnership with UNITEL

    Deb Trusty and Ryan Keeley are incredibly knowledgeable of the cable tv/telco industry, which makes getting adequate coverage so much easier! They understand what you mean when you say things like: construction, peds, cabinets, co's, dial buildings, etc. When you talk to other agents, there seems to be somewhat of a 'language barrier' when it comes to these types of insurable items.  They never try to sell us more than we need and they make sure to point out both excessive coverages and inadequate coverages that may need adjusted when we renew. Good agents are hard to find. If you find agents you like, you should keep them. Debbie and Ryan are most definitely keepers!

  • Tammy Emerson
    "Everyone at UNITEL, from our local agent staff to the claims representatives has been extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and so very easy to work with.  Their response and turn-around time is lightning fast.  We are nothing short of pleased with our transition to UNITEL. UNITEL brought to our attention areas that were lacking in our former policy which, in our industry, could have had some major  consequences.  The change to UNITEL has provided us with more robust coverage and saved us money. It is apparent that the team are looking out for us personally as a company not just another policy holder."

  • Dave Wolf
    "UNITEL has always done an amazing job for Gardonville. Chris Danielson's guidance and advice extends beyond a typical consultant relationship, it’s more of a partnership. Time and time again, his intuitive nature leads to questions that when he asks, instantly provides “decision making perspective” in the given answer. I value his experience, integrity, dedication and passion for adding value to my company."

  • Terri Bogner
    "Our Company is very satisfied with UNITEL. I enjoy the ease in dealing with our representative and his staff.  Our emails are answered promptly and telephone calls are returned.  They offer cost effective pricing for all of our needs in the Telecommunications Industry."

  • Sheri Wilkemeyer
    "I recommend UNITEL because they are easy to work with.  Their account reps and account managers are quick to respond to questions, check in with me from time to time to make sure there is nothing I need assistance with, and are very knowledgeable.  They make sure we are happy, don’t have any issues, and that they have done everything they possibly can to help us out. Their claims services department has pleased me the most.  Claims are handled in a timely manner.  No surprises here!"
  • Katie O'Connell
    "Telecommunications is not a straight forward industry for insurance purposes as our insurance needs are changing on a continuous basis.  We have multiple companies and ventures that require much interaction with UNITEL on a very regular basis.  Their knowledge, quick response time and diligence in seeking out answers to difficult questions is very important to us.  I feel working with UNITEL allows for a comfort level that our insurance needs are met timely and accurately. Due to the size and nature of our business we have very regular interactions with UNITEL.  I feel they are very customer service oriented, the claims process is quick and easy, the employees are very knowledgeable and helpful and working with them gives us a comfort level that our insurance needs are being met."

“Western New Mexico Communications has a long standing relationship with WTA. WTA’s focus on serving its membership is second to none. Our company benefited greatly from WTA’s partnership with UNITEL Insurances ancillary benefit program. WNMC believes one of the key drivers to the success of our company is the investment we make in our employees. WTA’s ancillary benefit program provided our company substantial premium savings, but more importantly allowed us to enhance the benefits we currently offer our employees. We would recommend member companies consider the member benefit provided by WTA and UNITEL Insurance.”

“SC Telcom has participated in WTA’s program from the beginning.  Our company found the premium savings to be significant enough to allow us to launch a new employee benefit. UNITEL Insurance is great to work with and did an excellent job guiding us through the transition in coverages. We appreciate the efforts by WTA and UNITEL Insurance to bring this member benefit to our company.”

Healthcare reform continues to dominate the focus for companies offering medical benefits, forcing companies to look at ways to reduce benefits to control cost. Studies show that a high percentage of employees rely on employers to provide life and disability insurance, so it is critical for businesses to continue to offer robust benefit packages to attract and retain the best talent in the industry.
