The Business Challenge
ZAGG® Inc. has changed the way people protect their handheld electronic devices. The company’s flagship product, invisibleSHIELD™, is created from material originally developed to protect military helicopter blades from wind and sand. This transparent film, which is scratch proof and stain resistant, protects electronic gadgets, from iPods to cell phones to digital cameras.
ZAGG engages in a tremendous amount of e-commerce; therefore, a reliable and scalable Internet connection is compulsory. Before the company implemented Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet Service, its Internet connection fluctuated in bandwidth and was much slower. This impeded employee productivity in the 100-person call center and frustrated people working in the corporate office. ZAGG needed a fast, reliable, dedicated and highly scalable Internet connection to support its rapidly growing company and e-commerce.
The Comcast Business Solution
Bill Armstrong, IT Manager for ZAGG, and his colleagues looked at several Internet solutions before choosing the Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet Service. “Comcast had a lot to offer, but one of the most important was value for the money,” he explained. “Comcast provides everything we want in a reliable and scalable Internet connection, and they beat everyone’s price by a significant margin. Since implementation, we’ve experienced excellent uptime and no bandwidth issues, plus we know our Comcast support team is always available if we need them.”
Fluctuating bandwidth is no longer an issue at ZAGG because Armstrong and his colleagues can add bandwidth whenever they need it. “This Internet connection runs our call center and corporate office, so speed is key. Faster Internet access means greater productivity, which increases sales,” he said. “We’re the number one supplier of our product type in the world, and we sell to customers all over the world. All of our ordering software is web-based, so we need an Internet connection we can count on day and night.”
Zagg uses another Comcast solution—Business Ethernet Private Line Service—to connect its hosted VoIP phone system to the corporate office. This high capacity, point-to-point connection uses a lower-cost fiber optic Ethernet interface, which is another reason why Comcast could offer the lowest overall price among competitors.
“These two Comcast solutions facilitate our entire business infrastructure, and everything has been running smoothly since day one,” Armstrong concluded.
