In today’s business environment it is crucial to have internet connectivity to ensure the smooth running of your business. A lot of planning goes into office openings, relocations, store openings and other important projects but despite all the planning the proficiency of an internet connection can make or break a projects success. We like to think outside the box to find solutions to minimise the risk of a poor connection.
We had an IT setup & relocation project for EIF International, the UFB providers put the installation back into the consents stage and only informed us a few days before the offices had to be up and running. This ultimately would have meant that the customer would be unable to trade on their opening day and they would not be connected for another two months at least.
Not accepting this as fact our Tauranga consultant Dion called in our Auckland consultant Matt Walkinshaw to setup a wireless link to another customers premises who were nearby and already had fibre. They livened their UFB fibre connection as a secondary connection at the remote site bringing the customers online within a day. We met the go live date and the wireless link ran the customers for two months while their fibre installation was being completed.
For Think Concepts this job proves our ability to solve problems under pressure. The last-minute nature of the issue didn’t hinder the effectiveness of our solution and encouraged our consultants to work even harder for our customers. For our customers we ensured their office opening was as seamless as possible despite the lack of fibre.
