Solutions from EXTEND for enterprises with multiple retail locations, near and far.

Solutions for Retail Business

Retail is changing and in many cases budgets for things like IT are only shrinking. Learn how EXTEND helps its clients, with retail locations around the globe, stretch IT budgets further without compromising on their needs or project scopes.


The Problem

Our client, a global retailer of beauty products, wanted to deploy the single-box SD-WAN solution from Riverbed's SteelConnect to over 200 locations across the United States and while on-site, needed the EXTEND team to verify site-assets against current records held by its purchasing and IT departments.

Project Requirements:

• Local SmartHands • Staff Augmentation • Remote Deployment • Infrastructure Audit

The Goal

  • Complete an infrastructure audit to verify compatibility with existing systems and design integration with existing back-office systems.
  • Design the network architecture for the new wireless infrastructure.
  • Deploy APs, cabling, controllers and other wireless infrastructure throughout fulfillment-center.
  • Validate deployment and back-office integrations. 

The Outcome

EXTEND was able to complete this project and deploy the new wireless infrastructure to support the new wireless data-collection devices as part of the new inventory and order management solution implemented by the 3PL operation.  This project went so well for the Bristol warehouse location, our client decided to standardize all of its 14-global locations to this system, which EXTEND completed at each of the additional 13 fulfillment-center locations.
