Uploading and Downloading CAD Files Was Virtually Impossible
C&C Catering Equipment Ltd have been established for over 35 years. They specialise in providing commercial catering equipment, including the fabrication of bespoke units and the project management and installation of large projects for corporate clients.
Over the past few years the nature of their business has changed to a more digitally based one; huge Gbps CAD files and electronic documentation are downloaded and uploaded.
John Mundy, Design Manager said, “We need to be able to receive and send electronic files rather than relying on the post, which is slow and doesn’t create the right impression. The BT ADSL which at best was providing 5Mbps download and 1Mbps upload was becoming a real issue for us when trying to send and receive files. We looked at getting a dedicated leased line into the office however it was going to cost tens of thousands of pounds.”
ITS Provided a Fast and Cost Effective High-speed Broadband Service
John continued, “When ITS Technology Group (ITS) first talked to us about a high-speed wireless internet connection we were a bit unsure. It was a completely new concept to us, so we wanted to understand that the technical and commercial benefits could be proven. We visited their offices and saw how they were working in a similar rural location with the same service. We also needed to make sure that the equipment wasn’t unsightly as our premises are part of a large rural estate.
“Once we saw the demonstration we were more than happy to proceed and we wanted it that week! Unfortunately, it did take a few months to get installed as there were a few unforeseen permissions which needed to be sought from 3rd parties with the network build, however ITS dealt with all of these quickly and also installed a temporary satellite service for us. After an initial few days of tweaking and bedding in the service has been consistent and stable.”
Well Worth the Wait – 50Mbps Upload and Download
C&C Catering Equipment Ltd has three offices who can now all use Office365. The broadband is so stable Gbps files are downloaded and uploaded almost instantly. Working in the cloud with high-speed internet is saving time and money.
“In the Saighton office we can have up to 20 people working at one time and the broadband doesn’t flinch. We have the added benefit that we can increase to 100Mbps once we need to. Now we can also move to VoIP phones which will make further savings, by using the internet to make calls. We know ITS are close by in the same village if we need anything. It was well worth the wait,” concluded John.
