We're an Experienced & Qualified Phone System Provider

ServiceMark Telecom was founded in 1995 by local entrepreneur and philanthropist Larry Stewart, telecommunications veteran Bruce Gibbs, and technical guru Marty Granaman. Larry, Bruce and
Marty nurtured a culture within ServiceMark of always putting the customer first, providing a great place to work and giving back to the community. Building that culture is how ServiceMark became recognized as the number one NEC telephone system provider in the Kansas City region.

ServiceMark's Core Business - NEC Business Phone Systems

At ServiceMark, we are not advocates of technology for technology's sake; we embrace technology that can be deployed in a meaningful way for our customers. In the early 2000’s, ServiceMark began adapting to its customers’ future needs when it became evident that telecommunications and IT were converging, first by recruiting additional employees with extensive IT backgrounds and then cross-training the entire technical staff beyond the NEC brand of telephone systems to include VoIP solutions, unified communications and data networks.

ServiceMark has since grown its core competency beyond basic telephony to design reliable and cost-effective data networks that support voice and data for small, single-location companies as well as large, multi-location enterprises. Examples of deployed solutions range from NEC’s “bulletproof” on-premises SV9100s and Univerge 3C, an enterprise-level platform, to NEC’s next-generation cloud solutions, Univerge Blue CONNECT and ENGAGE.

ServiceMark Provides Local Phone Systems Service Backed by NEC International Juggernaut

Behind ServiceMark’s local expertise and technical certifications is NEC, a global company with a legacy of innovation going back more than 120 years, with annual revenues of $30 billion. Periodically throughout the company’s history, we considered other manufacturers’ solutions, but doing so would have compromised our ability to be the best at installing and servicing the NEC brand. That loyalty to NEC has lasted for 25 years and is what made ServiceMark the only “Double Diamond” NEC Associate in Greater Kansas City, which is a result of total annual sales and ServiceMark’s commitment to ongoing technical training and certifications.

Other notable awards include:

  • 2014: International NEC Sales, Marketing and Leadership Award (North and South America) in
    Community Service, Marketing Innovation and Effectiveness, and Increase in NEC Market

  • 2019: first recipient of the NEC Global Awards for Customer Care
