DataComm Plus was originally founded by brothers and former high school science teachers Bob and Tom Sodemann. In 1981, they saw a need arising from the telecommunications industry, which was on the cusp of a revolution after the break-up of the AT&T monopoly. They answered that need with Phones Plus, Inc. Heavily influenced by their father, Robert, a former AT&T engineer, they set out to do things differently — and better.
Their father told the boys that 90 percent of all businesses had 20 percent too many phone lines. With that, the boys made it the mission of their company to reduce redundancies and invest the money saved in newer, more efficient, more feature-rich equipment. They set out to help businesses in the Southeast Wisconsin area to cut the cord on their unused phone lines and to spend that money saved on updated phone systems.
It was a business model that worked, and 30 years and more than 4,000 phone systems later, Bob and Tom — along with their dedicated team of sales consultants, engineers, technicians, customer advocates and office personnel — have yet to stop growing. Their global approach to telecommunications ensures they’re always finding new ways to provide the best equipment and services in the industry.
“You know, since 1981, we’ve never stopped looking at all the pieces that make up the technology budget in a business, and we’ve worked to reduce and simplify it to get the maximum benefit for our business partners,” Tom says.
