Revitalising Global Distribution: APJ European's Digital Transformation
APJ European breaks free from digital constraints, accelerating their global distribution and customer engagement with Integra's SD-WAN solution.
Setting the Digital Stage for Global Distribution
APJ European, a major player in the global refrigeration and air conditioning industry, found themselves grappling with digital obstacles. Despite their commitment to operational excellence and customer service, their South Coast warehouse was plagued by slow internet speeds and high latency due to collapsed ducts in their region.
This digital roadblock impeded their ability to use multiple applications and caused delays in processing customer orders.
Navigating the Digital Icebergs
The company's digital challenges were twofold. Firstly, their use of remote platforms like Quicken and SAP became taxing due to frequent disconnections and excessive response times. This resulted in operational inefficiencies and customer service delays.
Secondly, poor quality and often dropped voice calls were not just a source of frustration for staff but also had a negative impact on their customer relationships. These issues necessitated the urgent need for a robust, reliable, and efficient solution.
Integra's SD-WAN: The Digital Lifeline
Integra provided an SD-WAN solution that harnessed the capabilities of three out of four UK cellular networks, including the newly accessible 5G. This allowed APJ to achieve impressive download speeds exceeding 100 Mbps and upload speeds of over 80 Mbps. Moreover, APJ could now operate all of their applications on one infrastructure without issues of latency and low bandwidth, marking a significant transformation in their operations.
Integra installed the solution within two weeks and has been a consistent support during the implementation process and beyond, helping APJ with configuration and troubleshooting.
