Greenbriar Resources is a consultancy firm situated in Underhill, VT that offers business consultation to its constantly growing clientele. Greenbriar Resources was facing a lot of difficulty due to the limitations of its IT equipments and processes. For example, availability of a few communication ports in the entire office that made data transfer from one destination to other very inconvenient and also because the office was located in a very rural area there were no ISDN or DSL services. The company required a solution that would not only provide it with a well connected office infrastructure, but also provide better communication facilities, and enhanced productivity. To solve all these purposes Greenbriar Resources opted for the OfficeConnect services offered by 3Com. Along with IT solutions provider 3Com, Greenbriar Resources wanted to achieve better office-wide connectivity that enabled improved customer services and interactions, increased productivity and allowed transfer of huge amount of data such as files, faxes and emails. OfficeConnect, besides providing Greenbriar with excellent communication services, also offered great reliability, user-friendliness, easy installation processes, cost-effectiveness, and high-end quality features. It is evident through this case study that 3Com's OfficeConnect provided its customer with all the desired business solutions at a highly affordable cost to improve its productivity and services.
