Iowa Premium Beef selects OneNeck® IT Solutions to provide new communications platform
December 08, 2014
OneNeck® IT Solutions announces signing a new contract with Iowa Premium Beef. As a start-up company, Iowa Premium Beef which is located about 80 miles northeast of Des Moines, Iowa, was in need of a completely new communications platform to provide visibility, scalability, and reliability for the company’s highly secure, enterprise-scale LAN solution.
Iowa Premium Beef processes and markets premium Black Angus beef domestically and internationally. The company partners with local family feeder farms and sources only the highest-quality cattle available in eastern and central Iowa.
“As a new company, we needed an entire communications package,” says Nate Prugh, director of IT at Iowa Premium Beef. “I previously worked with one of the companies that now makes up OneNeck IT Solutions and had a great experience. Their engineers were top notch then, and many are still with the company today, so I feel confident partnering with OneNeck on our new communications platform.”
OneNeck is installing a new phone system, switches, and unified wireless communications solution which includes Cisco-based IT hardware and voice, video and web services. This solution provides Iowa Premium Beef with a secure, scalable, cost-effective wireless LAN for their business critical mobility. This solution uses radio frequency to transmit and receive data over the air, minimizing the need for wired connections. Added benefits for Iowa Premium Beef include: • Reduced operational expenses by simplifying network deployment, operations and management. • Greater mobility within the distribution center and convenience store for greater efficiency and faster speed to market for their customers.
“For Iowa Premium Beef, the on-time installation of their new phone system was critical to opening their doors to the community,” said Terry Swanson, senior VP of Solution Providers. “They needed to provide their employees with mobility and this system does that in a way that’s also safe, secure and reliable.”
