Fast track productivity with the right broadband solution

24 Aug 15

Businesses these days use a myriad of cloud based applications like accounting, banking and design software, plus video conferencing and of course phone systems. 

What they deliver might differ but its clear they all have one common requirement - a quick and reliable internet connection so your business runs fast and efficiently.

“We’re finding we’re getting a lot of enquiries from customers asking - how can we get more out of our internet?” says Garrick Unverricht, Manager - Business Markets, Compass.

Top of the list for fast connection speeds is ultrafast broadband.

“If a business is located in an area where ultrafast broadband is available, we’re able to install it quickly. Once in place, its very reliable with few ongoing issues - it just works. Its also a competitively priced option, rates are often similar to what a business is already spending.

"If its not yet available, we’ve got a range of alternate solutions to suit all sorts of requirements, from ADSL, VDSL and even rural wireless for businesses located in hard to reach areas. 

"When ultrafast broadband becomes available we can easily switch a business onto the best access method to suit their operation," explains Unverricht.

Getting more out of the internet

Quicker upload and download times means businesses can action tasks faster than ever before. 

“We all know how frustrating it is when your computer is running slow, many software applications used in business operations are data heavy so its a real benefit to be able to speed up this process saving time and money,” Unverricht continues.

Another key advantage of having a fast and reliable connection is making use of the growing trend for video conferencing. 

“Staff often travel for work these days or work from all over the place and video conferencing is a great communication option but it can be frustrating if your feed or sound keeps dropping out because you don’t have the right broadband connection to run it,” he says.

“These are just a couple of examples we come across where ultrafast broadband is helping transform business operations, increasing revenue and saving costs.  

"The best is to get in touch with us here at Compass. We’ll find out how your business operates and suggest the ideal connection to handle the way your business works - so you can run as efficiently and cost effectively as possible,” says Unverricht.
