For 60 years, InterBel has been committed to providing businesses and residents across the Tobacco Valley with the quality, affordable technology they need to communicate. Because at the end of the day, we know that our work isn’t just about providing a service or making a buck. For General Manager Jason Moothart, it’s all about people.
“When people are stepping up for their neighbors or their fellow businesses, it’s super important for InterBel to step in and try to understand what they need so that they don’t have to worry about the backend piece,” Moothart said. “They can just focus on all the things that they need to do to either run their businesses or take care of their family.”
We do what we do because of people like Brandon Baker. Baker relocated his family to Eureka in March 2021 to assume the role of Golf Operations Manager at Indian Springs Ranch. He was initially drawn to northwest Montana by the opportunity to work at a world-class golf facility in a small community. He was sold once he saw the community’s hospitality firsthand.
“They’ve taken myself and my family in like family since day one,” Baker said. “It’s a pretty special place”
To repay the community for the warm welcome they’ve shown his family, Baker has made it his mission to provide Indian Springs customers and members with the best possible experience—a mission shared by all of us here at InterBel. That’s why we equipped Indian Springs Ranch with a unified communications system.
With a mobile application from InterBel, Baker can receive any call that is made to his office on his cell phone, no matter how far he is from his desk.
“I can be on the course playing or giving a golf lesson, and at any given time, I’m able to take that phone call rather than having to take a message and call them back,” Baker said. “It’s a big relief for myself and the rest of my staff.”
Just down the road from Indian Springs Ranch, Leslie Mason counts on InterBel to continue her family’s legacy. Her father began Coldwell Banker Mason & Company in their hometown of Eureka, and today, Mason works with her father as an office administrator and realtor. With InterBel’s unified communications system, Mason and her colleagues are always available to their clients.
“Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest purchases that anybody can make. So we really want to be there for our clients to just make that less stressful,” Mason said. “Having that relationship so tight-knit is very important to us, and that’s why it is so important to have this InterBel phone system.”
Mason’s clients count on her to ease the stress of one of life’s biggest decisions. Because we are her hometown cooperative, Mason trusts InterBel to provide the technology she needs to do it.
“InterBel just doesn’t provide the internet and the phone services. They actually give back to the community. It is an entire co-op. So we’re all in a community involved in this company,” Mason said. “It makes it really easy when it’s somebody that you trust and that you know, that you’ve grown up with your whole entire life that comes in the office. They don’t let you down.”
Every day, members like Mason and Baker inspire us to do the difficult work of delivering cutting-edge technology to the residents of rural Montana. From voice and video to high-speed internet, we promise to continue progressing with technology in order to meet the demands of our members.
“Ultimately, InterBel connects people. It connects people with businesses, people with people, and that’s our job,” Moothart said. “It’s our responsibility to make sure that when it comes time to do the things that they need to do using our technology, it is seamless in their lives, just like turning the light switch on.”
