Improving connectivity with the latest Unified Communications links
With more and more stores opening in multiple countries, keeping control of communications was becoming increasingly problematic. With thousands of staff around the world, it was vital that JD Sports could use the most modern cloud-based Unified Communication links to bring colleagues together. Now, JD Sports employees can join on video conferencing calls, webchats, email or instant messaging links, wherever they are in the world.
JD Sports has also worked with Maintel to deploy an SD-WAN enabled network, allowing the IT department to control everything centrally, at the touch of a button.
With competition from online sales increasing, JD Sports had to futureproof its store network. SD-WAN provides the connectivity to take advantage of the latest 5G technology; to personalise its store offerings to help deliver real instore theatre for their customers; to provide omnichannel solutions where the bricks and mortar stores reflect the online experience; and where it can install the latest IT technology to keep abreast of the latest retail trends.
