As we’ve told you in the past – the company has really differentiated by enabling digital transformation and focusing on this point.
In other words, SD-WAN is often bundled with UCaaS or collaboration but Aryaka goes a step further and explains it wants to enable more than just those areas… Adding cloud applications to the mix for example.
The company just sold Digital Transformation, Network Simplification and Managed Services to World Fuel Services, a Miami, Florida based company of 271 people. They enabled a unified network architecture across their business locations to deliver traditional and cloud-based services such as O365, Box, Slack and Zoom. Business needs dictated a cost-effective, cloud-based architecture to deploy applications across a secure global network.
“When evaluating vendors for this project, we wanted to see cost efficiencies, last mile management, low latency access to multiple cloud services, and the ability to accommodate all of our diverse global locations,” said Richard Delisser, Vice President of Global Infrastructure at World Fuel Services. “What’s more, Aryaka was the only vendor who met all of our technical requirements, while also being a strong cultural fit.”
The project was completed together with Aryaka’s U.S. partner Pluto Cloud Services, a worldwide leader in emerging technologies specializing in WAN Acceleration, Application Delivery, TCP Optimization, Teco Carrier MPLS and IP-VPN Services. Pluto Cloud Services introduced Aryaka’s Solution to World Fuel Services and managed the communication between the two companies during implementation.
Being able to provide Richard at World Fuel Services a global infrastructure that would match his needs was our goal,” said Larry Chaffin, CEO at Aryaka partner Pluto Cloud Services. “But it’s more than that as we have provided global telecom procurement as well. It’s all about the relationship with our customers and how we can provide them the best solutions and services around the world.”
This is the second SD-WAN related win we’ve reported on today – Ooma sold UCaas and SD-WAN to another Miami company as well – in that case it was 300-person Compass Health.
Pretty big coincidence.
