Leading East Coast Retailer of Wines and Spirits Migrates Its Business to the Fusion Cloud
Customer Sought Secure, Single Source Cloud Solution
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 10/28/15 -- Fusion (NASDAQ: FSNN), a leading cloud services provider, announced today that a large and rapidly growing retailer of wines and spirits in the mid-Atlantic region has selected Fusion to connect all 15 of its locations to the Fusion cloud. Fusion's fully integrated solution converges the retailer's voice and data requirements, delivering award-winning cloud communications services that drive productivity while reducing costs, along with managed network services that guarantee quality of service while meeting the company's rapidly expanding requirements for bandwidth. The retailer required a solution with integrated security to ensure the integrity of its information as it moves across the enterprise, and found that Fusion's cloud-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) solution increases network efficiency while securing the company's data.
Also key to the retailer's decision to award Fusion a $360,000, three year contract for its cloud solution was its need to solve its immediate communications challenges while meeting its longer term goal of migrating to the cloud. Above all, the retailer was committed to a solution that satisfied its requirements for controlling the security and integrity of its data without increasing costs. The retailer's IT team was impressed with Fusion's cloud-based UTM solution which manages the firewall in the core rather than at each location, ensuring full access to the bandwidth.
The retailer was also impressed with Fusion's feature-rich cloud voice solution, which will connect all 15 of its locations, including headquarters, overcoming its incumbent provider's inherent service limitations, and providing unified access to information.
"Fusion takes pride in delivering cloud solutions that deliver peace of mind, solving the kinds of problems that keep CEOs and IT Directors up at night," said Russell P. Markman, Fusion's President of Business Services. "This leading retailer needed to synchronize solutions across the enterprise, driving efficiencies in the way it serves customers by using cloud communications to more effectively check inventory, answer customer questions and source product. The CEO's primary concern was to be able to secure the transfer of information and directed his IT team to maintain a significant level of control. We're delighted to deliver with a powerful administrative portal that gives the IT team complete access and confidence. We're privileged to help this popular and growing retailer better serve its customers, now and in the future."
