Resources Success Stories WAN Carrier Consolidation and Circuit Cost Reduction

WAN Carrier Consolidation and Circuit Cost Reduction

THE CHALLENGE  
BJ’s Wholesale Club is a nationwide brand with geographically diverse locations, meaning they worked with many different vendors for circuits and other connectivity solutions. They found themselves with a rotating cast of account managers which made it difficult to establish strong relationships with vendors and closely and maintain control of their accounts. They sought to reduce network costs and streamline vendor management and looked for a partner to help them manage the process of vendor selection, negotiation, implementation, and ongoing support. 

The Requirements

BJ’s required: 

  • The creation of a scalable and homogenous network across their footprint. 
  • A partner to help them narrow down their many vendor choices, consolidate their WANs, lower the cost of circuits, and manage vendor relationships and issue escalations with dedicated attention.

The Highlights

  • Amplix worked with BJ’s to identify requirements and engineer a solution that would efficiently connect locations and their 3 data centers with diversity and redundancy. 
  • Evaluated and quoted next-gen technology to replace their current WAN solutions. 
  • Replaced current connectivity solutions with more cost-effective solutions. 
  • Deep knowledge of vendor landscape enabled Amplix to help BJ’s complete the evaluation and procurement process faster and with better cost structures. 
  • Amplix taking lead on the project saved BJ’s resources countless hours and allowed them to remain focused on core activities. 
  • Amplix project managed the implementation to increase speed to value and reduce risk.
