CIMCO Signs 35 New Business Partners in First Half of 2004

Leading Chicago-area Voice, Data and Managed Services Provider Increases Partner Network by 200 Percent Year-over-year

Oakbrook Terrace, IL, August 2, 2004 - CIMCO Communications, Inc., today announced new partnerships with 35 value-added resellers in the Midwest. CIMCO now has a total of 85 partners that sell its breadth of communications services. The company grew its partner base 200 percent versus the same time period in 2003.

CIMCO's Business Partner Program offers VARs numerous advantages over other programs, in addition to the ability to offer CIMCO's suite of voice, long distance, data, Internet technology, managed services and enterprise solutions. CIMCO's program includes non-exclusive, simple agreement, no revenue commitments, aggressive residual commissions, and post sales support. The program also gives VARs a dedicated business partner manager that works with them to win bids, close deals and ensure customer satisfaction.

"As part of our strategy to deliver passionate customer care, CIMCO is working with leading business partners to expedite the flow of work orders and response times," said Bill Capraro, president and CEO of CIMCO. "We spent a considerable amount of time vetting prospective partners to ensure that they mapped to the CIMCO vision for customer service and delivering results."

Existing CIMCO partners are very active selling for the company, having generated a healthy percentage of revenue. Besides traditional telecom VARs, CIMCO partners include corporate security resellers, systems integrators, consultants, and sales agents wanting to add product to an existing competency.

Business Partners leverage CIMCO's buying power to improve their quality of service and reduce overhead by being able to select from a variety of options and programs to find the most cost-efficient mix of features and services to offer their end-user.
