As a signage solutions company with a national clientele, North American Signs moves large files across the Internet as a crucial part of its business. Because the scope of work is so broad, and because employees generate vast amounts of online traffic, Metronet Zing was the right choice for North American Signs.
“We work with architects and designers across the country,” says John Yarger, CEO. “Very high bandwidth is necessary to move those files quickly and easily.”
With Metronet Zing, connecting the company’s second office in Elkhart is now just as fast as if everything were located in the same building, eliminating the need for additional equipment at the second office. Every aspect of North American Signs’ data -- including in-house applications, email, share-point services, customer portals, several web sites, and projects in planning forms and parameter security – can be hosted and transferred with no delays between buildings.
“Metronet Zing allows for virtually unlimited growth,” says Robert McCaughey, IT manager. “As North American Signs adds clients and employees, and as the environment moves away from paper documents and becomes increasingly electronic, I’m confident that we will never have to worry about having enough bandwidth.”
