“Working with Greg and his level of support from a management perspective for the past 5 years has been second to none. I have appreciated his response and effort put forth dealing with my requests, essentially around the clock which has been paramount. Greg and his team’s assistance on complicated projects that require additional expertise/support, and ability to facilitate training or simply point me in the right direction, are areas we continually rely on heavily. It is a testament not only to your high level of customer service, but also to the enormous amount of hard work and meticulous attention to detail. I strongly believe his service represents a high degree of professionalism at an incredible value.”

We really enjoy working with Atrion for our security needs.  Atrion keeps in close contact with us and they always keep us appraised of Fortinet’s solutions.

NJ K-12 Technology Coordinator

MECHANICAL & INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING FIRM


I have had a long and rewarding working relationship with Atrion Communications. Atrion’s knowledge and expertise in networking and security is impeccable and has proven to be an asset to my company. As Director of Information Technology for a leading engineering firm, I have relied on Atrion for training, technical support, and guidance. Atrion has been a key contributor in helping me achieve my business and technology objectives. As my Atrion Representative, Brandon Chaiko, continues to provide exceptional service, his professionalism and attention to detail is impressive. When I communicate a technical issue or need, Brandon quickly provides guidance and a channel of communication to the proper technical expert for information ultimately leading to solutions.

Director of Information Technology

FORTUNE 500 SERVICE PROVIDER


“In today’s world every Business and IT leader is being challenged to reduce spend, while simultaneously bringing more value. In turn we bring this challenge to our VARs who bring it to their Technology partners.

When you partner with Atrion, you get a partner who understands these challenges and works with you to reduce costs, but just as important or in some cases more importantly they bring skills and resources to the table which act as a force multiplier. Not only do they work with you and their Technology partners to get you the best costs, they help track maintenance renewals across the Technology estate so you are able to properly budget spend and plan for upgrades. As anyone with a complicated IT budget knows this can be critical to keeping your costs low and not having to ask leadership for hundreds of thousands of dollars at the last minute for maintenance or new systems to replace EOL solutions.

Just as critical, Atrion brings technical talent to the table. These resources collaborate with your teams whenever called upon—from getting training for a new system to lending a hand trying to implement a solution or just help with a problem they are always there. I can honestly say that in 11 years of working with Greg & Atrion they have never let me down and always worked to make me successful.”

LARGE HEALTHCARE PROVIDER


I joined the business recently and was instantly welcomed by the Atrion family. I say ‘family’ quite literally as Dom and Pat work hard to ensure every customer is treated as such. Our business is not uncomplicated for an industry typically regarded as having archaic network technologies and pre-2k network design. We are evolving though and string to deploy robust, redundant, and complex solutions worthy of any enterprise carrier seen in other industries. To that end, Dom worked personally with us to ensure we were successful with our deployment. He was a constant presence at deep dive technical meetings, weekly deployment check-ins, and more tactical design decisions regarding web proxying capabilities, translation, and TLS decryption. His objective and complementary attitude is relatively non-existent in senior executives at similar sized resellers/partners. Dom is a wealth of technical expertise on a plethora of equipment, always providing reliable and responsive feedback when required. Additionally, Pat understands this domain well and offers an opinion that while direct, is obviously backed with taking the time to understand his customer well. It’s incredibly flattering to trust that both Pat and Dom have our best interests at heart. We continue to expand our relationship with Atrion, as few partners offer such a familial relationship.”

Knowing I have Atrion around to handle my network has really allowed me to sleep at night. I really trust their people and the depth of support they’ve provided me. If i have a choice, and there is something that Atrion can help me with, they are always my first choice.”

Robert Schalhoub, VP, Information Technology

SOMERSET TIRE SERVICES, INC.


Recently we were confronted with a number of serious problem stores during the course of our VPN rollout. After spending literally weekstrying to discover the cause of these problems by working with the service provider (line testing, equipment swapping, and in some cases rewiring) we had accomplished nothing other than frustrating ourselves and our store personnel.

After exhausting our possibilities with the service provider, we turned to Atrion for help. As it turned out, we didn’t have one problem in multiple stores, we had different problems across these stores. Nevertheless, by the following day, Atrion had assisted in solving all of the problems that we presented to them.

The excellent support we received from John, Dom, and anyone else who may have helped behind the scenes at Atrion, allowed us to get our stores back in business soon after we presented them with the problems.

We certainly appreciate having the expertise of Atrion’s technical staff available when we need it.”

“I’ve worked with Atrion for many years because of their incredible responsiveness. Whenever I’ve needed something right away, they’ve been there to handle my requests, even sending someone into New York City on New Year’s Eve to make sure we recieved out equipment before the year end.”

“Pat Grillo is one of those kinds of individuals who you want to hold up as an example for others to emulate. I hired his company when they were recommended by a national telecom systems manufacturer. We had an extremely compressed schedule to tighten up a security issue and deploy a dial-up infrastructure for a global professional services organization. Pat and his company stepped right in and helped make it happen in record time. Thereafter, whenever we had similar challenges, Pat was always ready to help – with expertise, great employees and willingness to share knowledge.

Since then I have come to know Pat as an excellent business leader, and a wonderful individual. If you need someone with plenty of integrity, ecxellent business connections, and willingness to find an alternative solution, Pat is a great guy to meet with.”
