CINCINNATI, Aug 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE: CBB) and PRO OnCall Technologies, LLC (PRO OnCall) have jointly announced a strategic partnership to offer Small Office Network Analysis (SONA), a crucial blueprint to help small and medium businesses clarify their current IT capabilities and plan for the future.

SONA is especially valuable for small businesses without an internal IT department, providing a plan for expansion of computing and data capabilities as their needs grow. It includes:

  •  Onsite Assessment: Technicians provide a candid, onsite assessment of a company's IT infrastructure, including data storage capabilities and disaster recovery.
  •  Executive Summary: IT infrastructure strengths, weaknesses and recommendations are provided in a high-level, plain-English report.
  •  Investment Schedule: Future IT investments are prioritized in a technology roadmap.

SONA will also be offered in the Peace-of-Mind Suite for small business, which includes Complete ProtectionSMoffice security and Zoomtown(R) data backup and storage.

"This partnership will allow us to provide the most comprehensive IT solutions for all our customers," said James Ruehlmann, Vice President of Marketing to Small and Medium Business at Cincinnati Bell. "PRO OnCall has a proven track record for expert implementation and customer support. This is a win-win for every small business looking to stay on the cutting edge of office technology without having to add IT personnel to their payroll."

Cincinnati Bell's CBTS division will continue to offer its technology solutions to large and enterprise businesses. The Cincinnati Bell/PRO OnCall partnership will give small and medium businesses access to a range of products, services and support formerly reserved for larger companies.
