Superfast Broadband Case Study: Lupimedia
Yeovil multimedia company embraces power of superfast broadband
Yeovil based multimedia specialist, Lupimedia, has increased its sales by 15% over the past 12 months, thanks to the installation of superfast broadband as part of the Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) programme, which aims to make superfast services available to around 90 per cent of homes and businesses in the region by the end of 2016.
The day-to-day running of the business has suffered from ‘diabolical’ broadband capabilities in the area, which made it difficult to sustain their technology-savvy business, especially with lots of people replying on one connection.
Previously, staff would often have to wait for others to download large files before attempting to use Skype for conferencing with international clients. Unlike most businesses that focus on download speeds, the upload speed of 1mps was a real setback, with the business constantly needing to upload files to web servers.
Now, with superfast broadband, there is no shouting around the office and staff are able to get on with their day to day work, increasing productivity and improving the day-to-day operations of the business.
“Your time is valuable, so why waste it? We have saved time and money by upgrading to superfast broadband and it has made a tremendous difference to how effectively we are able to work,” said James Ovenden, Director and Founder of Lupimedia.
Superfast broadband now provides staff with great speeds and a consistent service regardless of the number of users online. What’s more, the business has seen a 15% increase in productivity since switching. All staff are able to work on the network simultaneously; download and upload speeds have increased substantially.
James comments: “We are seeing some really special advancements in technology in our industry and faster connections will mean that previously undoable technology is now made possible due to the fast speeds. Software as a service (SaaS) is an emergent growth market, which will soon be the norm for applications as we know them and faster connections simply make this more appealing. Several of our clients operate in this market and fast stable connections will allow this area to grow.”
