Laketec did their usual fine job at our new Heidelberg Center in Louisville, Kentucky.  The new cabling was done without incident by your cable crew and the ShoreTel system was implemented by an excellent technician, Dan Speigal who is very knowledgeable.  I have used Laketec for all of our sites throughout Ohio and Kentucky and we are very happy with the results. Whatever we need, they deliver.
