Case Study: Mid-Sized Manufacturer

This mid-sized, privately owned manufacturer is the largest and oldest manufacturer of pet cages, pet toys, and pet accessories in business today. Based locally in the Chicagoland area, the company sells its products worldwide.


Business Challenge:

The Company faced inadequate internet bandwidth for some of its key applications and had a phone system on its very last leg. The Company also relied on several different technology vendors for various components of their technology, which saw the owner the communications middle-man between all the various entities. The change was necessary but all improvements faced an incredibly tight budget due to the “Great Recession.”

Framework IT Solution:

Framework IT specialists audited the client’s voice and data spending before offering their solution. Framework IT brought Comcast fiber infrastructure into their two main offices/plants to eliminate the old copper line service as the infrastructure in the area was maxed out, archaic, and unreliable. This resulted in a 4 fold increase in internet bandwidth, improving connectivity to their key, cloud-based business applications, and enhancing employee productivity.
