Agito Networks, Inc., the company delivering innovative solutions in enterprise mobility, today announced that customer Anthony Marano Company has been selected to present in multiple sessions at the Network World IT Roadmap Conference and Expo being held in Chicago March 16.
Anthony Marano Company CTO Chris Nowak will present “VoIP and WiFi Make for a Winning Combo” in the conference’s Convergence and Wireless Roadmap IT Track. In addition, Mr. Nowak will lead the “Tips and Tricks for Success with VoIP and WiFi” moderated table discussion in the expo.
Located near downtown Chicago, Anthony Marano Company serves the Midwest with fine fresh produce from its state-of-the-art distribution center. The 400,000 square foot facility contains 73 docks to receive and ship more than 1,400 types of fresh produce. According to Nowak, Anthony Marano Company’s large metal and concrete facility makes cellular communications impossible for the staff which is constantly on the move between produce areas, shipping docks, receiving docks, and internal and nearby offices. Accessibility is critical because the staff deals with fresh produce, a perishable commodity. A missed call could easily cost the company thousands of dollars, he said. With Agito’s RoamAnywhere Mobility Router, Anthony Marano Company enables continuous high-quality voice coverage for its mobile produce buyers and sellers, which need to be accessible at all times to receive and fulfill an average of 3,000 orders throughout the day.
“Network World’s IT Roadmap is a convenient, one-day seminar where attendees can learn practical strategies and tactics to use at their jobs moving forward,” said Pejman Roshan, Agito Networks Chief Marketing Officer. “Through his years of dealing with wireless connectivity issues, ultimately addressed by Agito Networks, Chris Nowak is an expert when it comes to enabling the mobility and UC tools mobile workforces need to be productive. Attendees will learn valuable lessons from hearing his experiences on leveraging WiFi and VoIP that they can apply in their own organizations.”
