Network performance, reliability, and security are essential to business success, whether a company is large or small. Businesses of all size are finding out through experience that Cloud Managed Network as a Service (NaaS) delivers similar internet connectivity as the more expensive MPLS and offers fully managed and monitored services, dependable uptime, cloud integration, solid perimeter defense security, built-in Wi-Fi, and SD-WAN.
Leveraging world-class Meraki technology from Cisco, NaaS solutions from CBTS are delivered as a customized “all in one network.” A single low-cost monthly fee covers all equipment, extended warranty upgrades, and best-of-breed management and customer support services.
One of the many strengths of a Managed Cloud Network like NaaS is that it allows branch facilities of businesses in retail, manufacturing, banking, health care, and other industries to experience full access to the same services available at the main office, all with centralized management. Consider just a few examples of real CBTS customer implementations that are resulting in highly measurable success.
More Uptime for an Auto Company
A rapidly growing Midwest-based company providing tires, wheels, and auto services experienced repeated network outages with a previous technology provider. CBTS implemented a POS- and Wi-Fi-enabled solution for the business that resulted in 10 percent reduced downtime at branch locations along with the generation of revenue and valuable analytics from its Wi-Fi network. Now, the company can use POS data to better determine the benefits of opening and closing at certain hours. Beyond that, monthly network operating costs are expected to drop from $90,000 to $40,000.
Faster Internet for a Concrete Contractor
A full-service concrete contracting firm with 600 semi-mobile employees needed a solution to lower expenditures and bolster internet access at its 17 branch locations. A solution implemented by CBTS resulted in increased internet speeds of 10X, network cost reductions of 87 percent, and cost savings for operational labor of 30 percent. As an added benefit, the business is also seeing a 66 percent reduction in the time it takes to open new locations.
Uniform Services for Food Company
A Southern-based specialty food business with 300 company-owned and franchised locations sought a turnkey solution to efficiently add new franchises to its network. The business also wanted to provide a uniform experience for customers accessing the stores over the web, by phone, and in person. The customer required voice services, POS and online ordering applications, and guest Wi-Fi at store locations. After testing a solution from CBTS at two franchise locations, the company made the decision to use the service to connect future franchises to its network.
Cost Savings for Manufacturers/Distributors
A Cincinnati-based manufacturer and distributor of windows, siding, roofs, and doors operates showrooms across the United States where consumers can learn about the products. Since implementing a solution from CBTS in June 2016, the company has enjoyed 50 percent cost savings compared to its previous MPLS solution. Additionally, NaaS is delivering increased speed and connectivity, and it’s now much easier for showroom employees to access web-based business apps and other SaaS solutions.
