Fuso-aligned industrial gas supplier, Supagas, has turned to Macquarie to overhaul a complex, multi-provider network.
The Australian LPG services specialist will partner with Macquarie Telecom as hybrid cloud and emerging technologies beckon Supagas, which has grown significantly with several acquisitions and subsequent sales to Japanese company, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation.
With distribution centers, branches and agencies nationwide, Supagas, which operates over 500 trucks and trailers nationally, was left with a complicated and outdated network, comprising pieces of fiber, wireless, NBN and ADSL services. This was hindering its ability to innovate and transition to digital services.
As a leading supplier of LPG, industrial, medical, specialty and helium gas bottles in Australia, the company’s modern facilities enable it to provide multiple gas types and products as well as specialized laboratories to mix and test specialty gases.
Working with Macquarie Telecom to overhaul the network and deploy its SD-WAN and SIP services in all 41 sites, Supagas has seen a smooth transition from 20 independent phone systems and five different providers into one company-wide VoIP service.
“Our customers’ ability to contact our branches directly is the most essential part of our business and supply chain, and it was time to transition from traditional voice to a cloud-based VoIP system,” said Peter Sudiro, National IT Manager, Supagas.Click below to share this article
