Fusion Delivers Cloud Comms and Security for Wines & Spirits Retailer

Cloud services provider Fusion has announced that a large and rapidly growing retailer of wines and spirits in the mid-Atlantic region has selected Fusion to connect all 15 of its locations to the Fusion cloud, in a a $360,000, three-year contract.

Fusion’s integrated solution converges the retailer’s voice and data requirements in a unified way across locations, delivering cloud communications services and managed network services that guarantee quality of service. The retailer also required a solution with integrated security, so it also selected Fusion’s cloud-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform, which manages the firewall in the core rather than at each location, ensuring full access to the bandwidth.

“Fusion takes pride in delivering cloud solutions that deliver peace of mind, solving the kinds of problems that keep CEOs and IT directors up at night,” said Russell Markman, Fusion’s president of business services. “This leading retailer needed to synchronize solutions across the enterprise, driving efficiencies in the way it serves customers by using cloud communications to more effectively check inventory, answer customer questions and source product. The CEO’s primary concern was to be able to secure the transfer of information, and directed his IT team to maintain a significant level of control. We’re delighted to deliver with a powerful administrative portal that gives the IT team complete access and confidence. We’re privileged to help this popular and growing retailer better serve its customers, now and in the future.”
