DaVinci Checks the Box for Darby Dental Supply
The year is 2012. Gangnam Style is blasting from iPods, the world is celebrating Prince William & Kate Middleton’s first pregnancy announcement while simultaneously mourning the death of Whitney Houston and rising gas prices: the highest nationwide average ($3.60 per gallon), that is, until 2022 ($4.24 per gallon).
That same year, Darby Dental Supply was completing a migration from their former CRM to Salesforce and wanted to continue giving their agents outbound dialing capabilities in their new environment. At that time, AMC Technology was already an experienced partner with Salesforce (since 2003), had integration with Darby Dental’s existing Avaya phone system, and worked with their PBX. AMC could also help them with their overall community office management, streamlining communication from four corporate locations. Overall, AMC’s solution checked all the boxes.
Ed Friedmann, Director of Network Operations, recently spoke with AMC to reflect on the early days of the integration project. He shared that, when working on integration projects, there are always multiple dynamics that cause issues behind the scenes; however, in comparison, the AMC integration went relatively smoothly. “Things are considerably less challenging than I’ve experienced in other areas,” explained Ed.

No Adjustments Needed in Davinci as Agents Went Remote During Pandemic
When the global pandemic abruptly shifted almost all of Darby Dental’s agents to remote work, their IT team didn’t have to make any adjustments to their DaVinci environment. “It wasn’t even a factor [in the transition],” Ed shared.
Two years later, 99 percent of their agents continue to work from home without any issues from DaVinci.
Would You Recommend AMC and/or DaVinci?
When asked if Ed would you recommend AMC and or DaVinci to someone else looking for integration, he replied, “Of course.” He continued, “There is normally only one group that checks all our boxes, and obviously when we were evaluating this [DaVinci], you guys came out on top and we’re still here.”
“The 10 years [as an AMC customer] is a sign that it’s a solid offering.” – Ed Friedmann
