Education – Improve Data Speed

Canterbury School is a private college preparatory school on two campuses in Saint Petersburg, Florida serving Pre-K to Grade 12. TruPoint first engaged with Canterbury School when they were looking to improve data speed and performance. They were on a T1 based data network. TruPoint sourced multiple fiber providers and was able to design a MetroEthernet network with dedicated internet and a T1 based voice service with a 2nd provider for cost efficiencies. The network design provided for a significant bandwidth increase within the customer’s budget.

A few years later the Canterbury School was considering a phone system replacement and was in need of a further bandwidth increase. TruPoint was able to negotiate a bandwidth increase with the current fiber provider doubling the internet access at both campuses within the current pricepoint. TruPoint also secured an MPLS network between the sites with an integrated premise based IP phone system. The phone system provided for additional functionality and the opex pricing model fit perfectly within Canterbury’s budgetary constraints. TruPoint project managed the entire implementation process and phone system deployment.

Next Canterbury was looking at making a change to their legacy MS Exchange platform and was considering a change to Gmail with Google Apps but did not have sufficient IT resources to dedicate to the project. TruPoint was able to source a Google apps reseller that was able to manage and conduct the entire migration and user training. The company also provides ongoing user support and training which frees up already stretched IT resources and falls well within the Canterbury budget.

We are so pleased with the work TruPoint Communications has done for us. They provide excellent customer service with quality professionals. They take the time to know our business needs and make appropriate recommendations. I will definitely do business with them in the future and highly recommend their services to others.
