If you caught our recent blog, The Unprecedented Value of Extreme Networks: A Primer on Our New Report, or you’ve been following us on social media, then you know that we’ve released a new report, Quantifying the Value of the New Extreme Networks Solution (an ESG Economic Value Validation report), to show the IT community how deploying Extreme Networks can generate ROI and slash costs significantly, particularly in comparison with other network vendors.
When we embarked on a journey to release the new Extreme Networks solution, our goal was to make the resources of our organization as a whole part of the package. You should have access to a comprehensive network solution that goes beyond solving your immediate technology problems and extends into cost savings and economic benefit opportunities, period. This is why we engaged ESG to execute their Economic Value Audit process—to show you how you can realize unparalleled savings through Extreme.
Spoiler alert: ESG found that Extreme’s customers have enjoyed significant economic and operational savings when compared with alternative solutions that are provided by one or more network vendors. These benefits fall into three categories, which we’ll get into next.
“The Extreme solution was able to provide greater coverage and performance with far fewer access points because they invested resources to solve the problem differently than the other vendors – and they came in at half the cost of the highest bidder.” – Extreme Networks Customer
Based on ESG’s analysis, it was demonstrated that Extreme’s ability to integrate with and provide visibility into wired and wireless technologies from other vendors can also deliver significant economic savings. Inconveniently, other vendors typically don’t suggest or support deploying their technologies with solutions from competitors. Instead, they require customers to replace existing gear to function with new hardware or software capabilities. For many organizations that don’t have the budget to completely update the entire infrastructure at once, this becomes an important factor in the purchasing decision.
At Extreme, we’ve also made a strong commitment to delivering world-class support and services, as was reflected by ESG’s customer interviews.
Here’s how we approach success metrics: Extreme continuously tracks effectiveness in solving your problems quickly, and we measure the level of support you receive, too. Open issues and metrics are displayed in real time in the center of Extreme’s headquarters for all to see. If you open a case, we’ll survey you afterward, as well as periodically after it’s closed to ensure you remain satisfied. The ESG survey responses are overwhelmingly positive, affirming that customers view their relationship as a true partnership with Extreme.
Networking technology aside, you deserve the opportunity to do business with partners that are experts at what they do, have your best interests in mind, and aren’t simply looking to increase the quantity of sold goods or product margins. At Extreme, we believe in long-term value, but we also know value isn’t always apparent by simply comparing price tags. This is why ESG validated through customer interviews and product demonstrations that an Extreme Networks solution can provide significant savings to your organization, and we’ve got the numbers to back it up.
