Clyde Companies Inc. Selects Veracity Networks Telecommunications Connectivity and Consultation
Clyde Companies Inc. was formed in 1997 to consolidate the business entities owned and operated by the Clyde family and to provide support services for its six subsidiaries: W.W. Clyde and Company, Geneva Rock, Sunroc, Gorge Rock, Beehive Insurance and Clements Concrete. With over 1,500 employees in offices across Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada, this influential group of companies has been involved in almost every aspect of building and construction in the Intermountain West.
Clyde Companies leadership team was tiring of the impersonal response and approach of its current national telecommunications provider. When issues arose with the phones or Internet, Clyde Companies’ IT employees had to rely on an automated system to get assistance. This wasted time resulted in lost connectivity, which resulted in lost revenue. Clyde Companies decided to search for a local telecommunications provider that could not only provide local customer service, but also competitive pricing for its regional offering.
“Our previous provider could not service certain office locations at an affordable rate,” said Paul Stokes,Information Technology Director of Clyde Companies. “As we expand offices throughout the Intermountain West, it became more vital for reliable and cost effective ways of communication between our corporate offices to onsite management and employees.”
Clyde Companies valued Veracity Networks as a network provider due to its local connectivity and community presence. Veracity Networks provided newer technology with stronger network connections and immediate customer service. Due to the variety of office locations and network infrastructure, Clyde Companies took advantage of data and internet offerings such as MPLS, T1 MPLS, Fiber MPLS and DSL MPLS. Through decreased connectivity costs, Veracity Networks saved Clyde Companies 10 percent on overall telecommunications costs and facilitated the transition to newer technology and equipment, resulting in increased bandwidth.
“Veracity Networks has helped our organization grow by assisting with technical services, definite customer service responses, network configuration and telecommunications consulting,” said Stokes. “Veracity has enabled Clyde Companies to do better in our business by increasing the flexibility and connectivity between offices. Veracity is a valued telecommunications provider and partner.”\
