A global food product distributor needed more reliable and agile network services to support multi-national operations. The company required consistent product quality across the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Their previous network provider was pricey, unreliable, and offered sub-par support.

After researching high-performance network service suppliers, the company selected one of our partners, a leader in software-defined network services. The client was impressed with how quickly our partner responded to support requests as well as the ability to make service changes fast and dynamic bandwidth assignment. Over the course of four months, the food distributor migrated 12 network locations across the Netherlands, U.S., England, and Canada to the new service provider. Subsequently, WAN costs dropped by 45 percent, and the client’s IT team was able to right-size their bandwidth. Overall, our partner’s services fueled rapid worldwide growth for the food distributor.
