GLENVIEW, IL and ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Optelcon has awarded Cornerstone Communications, LTD as its North American public relations and marketing strategy agency of record.

"Working with Optelcon at a time when all organizations are trying to mitigate their expenses is truly exciting," said Brooke Greenwald, President, Cornerstone Communications, LTD. "The combination of Optelcon's proprietary, web-based TEM platform, its offshore business process center and the experienced team of industry insiders offers organizations the ability reduce more than just their bottom line spending," said Ms. Greenwald.

Optelcon's suite of offerings enables organizations to reduce their hard dollar telecom costs by an average of 26%+ as well as reduce soft dollar costs by 60-70%. Given that telecom is, on average, the 4th largest expense for companies, this has a dramatic impact on the bottom line.

Founded by a number of telecommunications industry executives, Optelcon is committed to creating, integrating, and offering flexible solutions geared toward saving organizations on their bottom-line telecom expenses. Educating businesses that the use of the TEM services offered by Optelcon save companies an average of 26%+ on their total telecom expenditures is critical given the economy.

"The best way we can achieve our goal of educating the market is to work with an organization like Cornerstone Communications. Cornerstone helps us reach out to the business community, educate them on how relatively easy it is to add significant dollars to the bottom line as well as help turn what is typically technical telecom lingo into a user-friendly format," said Robert Pommer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Optelcon. "We look forward to working with not only the Cornerstone team, but your corporate team as well."
