When Bob Shuman approached us, it was an exciting time for his dealership. Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram was on the verge of expanding from a small, one-car showroom to a large 15-car showroom. Business was booming.
Unfortunately, years in a small facility had put Shuman at a technological disadvantage. Their network was plagued with instability issues, and they didn’t know how to start integrating modern technology into their new facilities. They were looking for an IT service provider who could solve their network stability problem and guide them through the expansion process with a real focus on technology. Their needs didn’t end with the expansion, though; ongoing support had to be a key part of the deal.
Thankfully, Shuman came to Xpert at the perfect time. Xpert’s challenge was to weave technology into the dealership’s ambitious expansion plans without causing any major delays or interruptions. Had Shuman approached us too late in the construction process, installing our recommended solutions would have been much more difficult.
The first order of business was solving Shuman’s connectivity problem. In a facility as large as the new dealership, connectivity would be incredibly important and require professional analysis to properly achieve. Thankfully, the dealership is located along a roadway with a dark fiber line to tap into, so Shuman was eligible for fiber internet through our xConnect service.
To give them fiber internet capabilities, we ran new fiber to the premises and configured a network that would allow Shuman’s staff to reach gigabit upload and download speeds throughout the new facility. The new xConnect setup is faster and more stable than its predecessor and makes Shuman’s operations much more efficient.
“We have a 10-acre facility and different buildings, and to keep [our technology] all integrated and working, Xpert has been instrumental in helping us do that. The results so far have been fantastic… in clutch situations, there’s always someone there that answers the phone and seems to know what’s going on, so I’d say it’s worked very well, and we’ve been with them for many, many years.
In today’s world, where privacy is very important… we need to have a robust system to protect that, and we feel that we have that with Xpert.”
