Timeline - 1996

Founded as Telecom Labs, Inc. 

Doug Graham and Bruce Shelby founded Telecom Labs, Inc., a phone systems dealer serving the Pacific Northwest. In the first few years, the company rapidly scaled from 3 to 80 employees as the .com boom opened up new and growing business opportunities. 

Timeline - 2001

Shifted to Maintenance & Support 

Instead of merely selling phone systems, Graham and Shelby saw an opportunity and market need for maintenance and support providers and made a massive business shift to a service provider model. 

Timeline - 2003

Set a Precedent for Freedom of Choice   

While most businesses were forging deeper partnerships with OEMs like Avaya, TLI found success by moving to a Third-Party Maintenance model, which enabled the company to provide better service at a better cost. While Graham and Shelby fought their fair share of battles for this, it set a precedent in the industry for the freedom of choice in a maintenance provider.   

Timeline - 2004-5

Forged Strategic Partnerships  

As Microsoft and Cisco began to emerge as the frontrunners, transforming the way the enterprise connected, TLI made another huge shift and strategically partnered with these businesses. This served as one of the most formative decisions in the company's history.   


A New Name

As Telecom Labs' service offering continued to broaden, the company outgrew its original name. Described by customers as consistent, helpful, and knowledgeable, they needed a name to describe that sentiment. It was decided that Continuant would be the title to carry that concept well.  Coinciding with this name change was Continuant’s first acquisition, DialPro Northwest.  

Timeline - 2015

Joining Forces with Tata Communications

Partnering with the largest wholesale voice carrier in the world opened up new possibilities. With Tata, the opportunities for Continuant to support worldwide users became virtually limitless. 

Timeline - 2018

New Acquisition for a New Season

The acquisition of Ellis Pro Media, a world-class AV integrator, initiated a new suite of AV solutions and service offerings and served as a major turning point for the company. Connection and collaboration didn't just include voice anymore, but with this new added strength, Continuant could broaden their existing offering even further.

This same year, Microsoft named us Partner of the Year for Calling and Meetings.
