About

Starfish Associates was founded in 2005 by telecom and IT industry veterans and entrepreneurs Robert Hankin and David Raanan.  Together since 1995, and with a shared passion for engineering and technology, Rob and David saw the growing need for a new generation of telecom management and self service solutions. Today, Starfish headquartered in Bridgewater, NJ, deploys their business IT solutions globally to Fortune 500 companies and large enterprises who are seeking ways to streamline and optimize business processes.

As an Avaya, Cisco and Microsoft development partner, Starfish employs a staff of seasoned professionals serving in various engineering, technology and sales capacities.

Prior to launching Starfish, Rob and David co-founded CCOM Information Systems, a directory software company responsible for developing the award winning PhoneLine, a suite of directory and CTI solutions which was acquired by Avaya (formerly Lucent Technologies) in 2000.

What Makes Us Different

While many companies offer technology to solve a business problem, Starfish designs and deploys solutions that seamlessly integrate with an organization’s existing infrastructure. Our professional service team works closely with our customers and recommends ways to adapt and configure our core technology platforms to their current environment, rather than imposing change to systems and business processes currently in place.  Additionally, if our engineering team identifies areas where efficiencies can be achieved, we share best practices based on our experiences working with other large enterprises.
