ELIMINATING A BANDWIDTH BOTTLENECK TO ACCOMMODATE COMPANY GROWTH.
ACCOUNTING SERVICES FROM A RESPECTED FIRM
Founded in 1923, Williams-Keepers LLC provides a variety of accounting and financial services to mid-Missouri businesses and individuals. The firm's 100+ employees are well equipped to help clients meet financial goals.
A TAXED NETWORK
With tax season right around the corner, Williams-Keepers was facing a big bandwidth bottleneck. The company's T1 lines could no longer handle network and employee growth. New applications and tools couldn't be hosted on the company's network or website. In addition, the VoIP network connecting the firm's Columbia and Jefferson City locations was at risk of garbling or degrading phone calls as tax season began to tax bandwidth.
CONSULTING TO REACH A RESOLUTION
Since Williams-Keepers was already a longtime Socket client, it turned to Socket's experts to come up with the ideal fix. A new MPLS network seamlessly connected their two offices and a centralized collocated firewall and Internet traffic. By prioritizing voice traffic, calls are now crystal clear, even when data usage is high.
INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
With an upgraded network, Williams-Keepers' tech crew plans to move more applications to a web-based format so employees can access them remotely from client sites. By keeping up with technological advancements with help from Socket, they can continue to offer the advanced, personal service their customers expect.
