By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor

MegaPath Inc., a provider of managed IP data, voice and security services in North America, has announced that Select Staffing is using MegaPath’s (News - Alert) high-speed DSL and Cable connectivity services to communicate and share business data with more than 250 regional offices throughout the country. 

A national independent staffing company, Select Staffing relies on MegaPath DSL and Cable Connectivity Services for the flexibility to implement the high-performance access solution best suited for its individual offices. MegaPath also provides increased coverage for areas where access options are typically limited.
Positioned as cost-effective solutions, the MegaPath DSL and Cable Connectivity Services allow all of Select Staffing’s nationwide offices to increase productivity and deploy bandwidth intensive applications without the overhead of more expensive connectivity options.
"With over 250 sites nationwide and more than 50,000 temporary employees to keep track of and manage, Select Staffing required a fully-functional and reliable infrastructure to ensure we communicate effectively with all of our offices around the country," said Ashkan Abtahi, Director of IT Operations & Infrastructure at Select Staffing, in a Monday statement.
"By consolidating and managing all of our carrier relationships and delivering a highly scalable, reliable nationwide network, MegaPath has removed all of our connectivity issues and allows us to focus on supporting our offices and growing our business. This dedication to our success has made MegaPath one of our most important partners."

Since this implementation, Select Staffing has seen significant improvements in its applications used to manage its temporary workforce. MegaPath’s high-performance network ensures that the applications are able to function with the lowest latency possible to provide faster response times and reliable data sharing.

Such an approach has enabled Select Staffing’s regional offices to improve their reporting processes for more timely updates to headquarters.

"By offering the widest variety of access and carrier options, MegaPath is able to provide customers with the cost-effective, high-performance connectivity they require to support all of their locations nationwide," said Dan Foster, Senior Vice President of Sales at MegaPath, in the Monday statement.

"With our fully managed connectivity services, everyone at Select Staffing can now focus on serving their customers rather than worrying about application performance or access reliability."

Companies that are operating multiple locations dispersed throughout a state or country must rely on high-speed communications to help to drive efficiency in operation. Select Staffing has recognized the value of offerings from MegaPath and has implemented a solution that can be customized according to individual office needs.
Such flexibility is a must in today’s highly competitive industry as company’s must be able to differentiate themselves in the market through more than just price. MegaPath has been able to do just that, focusing on the value that it delivers to customers.
