X4 Solutions: A Quick Primer

- Blog

By Larry Lannon

X4 Solutions is the Premiere Sponsor for Channel Partners Conference & Expo later this month. The Premiere Sponsorship is top shelf. You will be seeing a lot of X4 Solutions, and its striking orange logo, in Chicago at the end of August.

Here are some short answers to FAQs about X4 Solutions.

On one level, X4 Solutions is a hometown agency, centered in Mokena, one of Chicago’s thriving southern suburbs, about a 45-minute drive from McCormick Place, where the conference is being held. But X4 Solutions does business across the country, not just in northern Illinois.

X4 Solutions offers a variety of voice and data solutions. The company has jumped into the energy business, too, in both electricity and natural gas. It changed its name from X4 Communications last summer, when it announced it was diversifying its services, including SaaS (software as a service).

The company is proud of its four core values: ethics, accountability, trust, and innovation and change.

One of the best ways to understand the X4 Solutions story is to look at the list of its 15 premiere partners:

  • Broadsmart
  • Broadvox
  • Cbeyond
  • CIMCO (Comcast)
  • EarthLink
  • FirstComm
  • InterCall
  • Level 3 Communications
  • Qwest
  • Single Path
  • Telepacific
  • Time Warner Cable
  • US Signal
  • XO Communications

X4 Solutions is aggressively communicating its vision of the industry, not only at Channel Partners in late August, but at events around the country. Here are some photos from a recent X4 Solutions symposium on the cloud held last spring.

The X4 Solutions story is a story of a master agency on the move.
