Multi-Site Business Case Study:

Flanagan Food Service

 

The Challenge

Flanagan Food Service distributes food supplies from three separate locations to over 5,000 customers across Ontario including bakeries, independent restaurants and national food chains. To grow their business they needed a fast, reliable network to track and distribute their extensive inventory in the Sudbury, Owen Sound and Kitchener regions. They also offer an online ordering service to their customers - the system had to be secure, reliable and accessible at all times.

                   

Packetworks Response

We began by thoroughly assessing the existing network before making our recommendations. After evaluating the network connectivity, we designed and built a WAN by extending their existing frame relay cloud. We also found bottlenecks in their LANs and upgraded their legacy 10Base T-networks with a managed switch.

 

Benefits to Flanagan Food Service

The changes implemented by Packetworks have increased the network to over 10 times the original speed, while ensuring network availability averaging 99.5%. All of this was provided at a cost savings of 25% compared to what they were originally paying.

Our ongoing network maintenance and excellent customer service has benefitted the customers of Flanagan Food Service, reduced costs and allowed the business to successfully fulfill their growth strategy.
