Last week at ITEXPO (News - Alert) Austin 2012, TMCnet sat down with Shawn Privratsky, CTO of Kunnect LLC, who was excited to be attending ITEXPO to utilize all of the networking and business opportunity the show had to offer businesses in the telecommunications industry. Not to mention, Kunnect has made a huge announcement about its brand new solution for the 2012 presidential election.
The provider of cloud-based call center telephony solutions has partnered with Organizer to deliver the industry’s first ever mobile app enabled calling campaign solution, Electionear. The app lets users have high-impact conversations with voters without wasting time and money in the process.
Powered by Kunnect’s tier 1 carrier network and pacing algorithms, Organizer utilizes the power of smartphones and cloud-based telephony to take political conversations into the real world. Using smarthpones, Electionear captures campaign information such as candidate opinions on key issues to inform campaign strategy and track progress on a daily basis.
“Technology can and should facilitate more human interaction, not less,” said Organizer CEO Ralph Garvin, Jr. “We’re building products that will make investing in more person-to-person contact a smart decision for all kinds of organizations, from Presidential campaigns to local businesses.”

Kunnect’s hosted call center solutions are cost effective and flexible as the deployment is quick with no hardware required. Its solutions work with any browse, be activated in minutes and scale to meet any load demands.
Founded in 2012, Organizer, a company founded by former Obama campaign operatives and Silicon Valley software engineers, builds tools that make person-to-person contact more efficient.
“Kunnect is excited to work with Organizer to create this unique mobile application. It will surely have an impact on the upcoming 2012 political landscape,” said Fred Côté, president of Kunnect. “Kunnect is no stranger to working with political parties to help them achieve their calling objectives, but it’s nice to work with someone who is leading the pack with innovative solutions to age old challenges.”
Additionally, Privratsky shared with TMCnet that Kunnect has been nominated for the Capacity Awards for two categories that will be announced in Amsterdam next month including Best Niche player and Best Technology Broker.
“We pride ourselves on high availability,” he said. “Many factors lead us to be more reliable and differentiate us compared from the rest of companies in the market.”
Over the years, Privratsky has observed a growing trend of virtual workers as management is starting to realize that they can quantitatively see how their employees are doing no matter where they are located.
Looking to the near future, Privratsky predicts it will be more about people and less about technology.
“With technology and the Internet being more available, you can work anywhere,” he explained. “A growing number of people have access to the Internet with smaller pieces of technology as high-speed bandwidth is becoming more and more available.”
