Tiffany came to Advantage looking for a new vocation, and knowing only that telecom had to do with phones. Today, she could easily be thought of as the heart of Advantage. Without her tirelessly processing orders, programming hardware, running the switch, orchestrating installations, and keeping the peace between the sales and repair departments, this machine would come to a screeching halt. She always has the answers to every question that stumps you, and selflessly provides support after hours and on the weekends, when needed.

Autumn arrived at Advantage looking to fill some time in her week, and just never left. She occupied the role of Office Manager for a while, but is doing less of that and more work in the field for sales. You’ll currently find her doing Tier I & II tech support on the phones, performing field installations and training of VOIP phones, finding solutions for existing customers, drumming up new customers, and restocking the office with coffee and toilet paper.

With a brain like a sponge, Christophe is the Young Einstein of the office. He was going to college in San Francisco with studies in Architecture but decided to put a stop to that nonsense and enter the exciting world of telecom.
