Not Rocket Science, Inc

MADISONVILLE, LOUISIANA

 

THE CHALLENGE

Founded in 1995, Not Rocket Science, Inc. (NRS) provides information technology solutions to businesses of all sizes and delivers on this expertise in a way that their customers can easily understand, relate to and use. The company’s services include business system consulting, Microsoft SharePoint development, mobile systems development, systems integration, and custom software development. They are a Microsoft Certified Development Partner with a proven track record of assisting customers and successfully integrating legacy applications with the latest web and mobile technology. Not Rocket Science is located in Madisonville, Louisiana, but serves clients throughout the United States. 

Since its inception, Not Rocket Science has been growing and adding more services. Although this growth was great for the company, they were literally becoming bandwidth starved. “Most of our source code and development environment is cloud based, and many of our day-to-day tasks involve the transfer of massive amounts of data,” said co-owner and Vice President Mark Pennington. “It got to the point where employees would sometimes ask to work from home if they had to move large files because the internet connection at home was faster than what we had at work!” Not Rocket Science was using a 6Mbps/768Kbps DSL line. 

 

THE SOLUTION

When Not Rocket Science learned that Spectrum Business was preparing to begin offering 100Mbps, they were intrigued. “Initially I was very hesitant to go with anyone other than Ma Bell,” said Pennington. “I’m a creature of habit and, while we were not getting the bandwidth we needed, I wanted to make sure the reliability was as close to 100 percent as possible.” After carefully investigating the new option, Not Rocket Science became the first Spectrum Business client on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain, about 45 miles outside of New Orleans, to subscribe to the 100Mbps speed.   

At that time, Not Rocket Science also moved five phone lines to Spectrum Business. One of the features they like is the ability to reroute office calls to other phones in case of an emergency. Because Not Rocket Science is located near Lake Pontchartrain, they are periodically impacted by hurricanes and other dangerous weather.

Thanks to the great pricing, Not Rocket Science even added Spectrum Business TV service to monitor the news and weather. Pennington confessed that watching sports on the 60” plasma TV screen in the conference room is also a delightful perk!

 

THE RESULT

Not Rocket Science employees were delighted to find that Spectrum Business delivered on the speed and reliability promised. “Having increased bandwidth helps us all work faster and be more productive,” said Pennington. “Part of our business model is to be able to rapidly deploy and support state-of-the-art web-based, mobile and client/server solutions. With 100Mbps we are no longer choked for bandwidth and when our employees are happy, that makes me happy!”
Pennington went on to report that the stability has also been excellent. “We monitor all our connections, but there have been times when Spectrum Business has remedied a problem before we had time to call and let them know there was a problem.”

Spectrum Business provides Not Rocket Science with what they are looking for from a telecommunications provider, superior speed at a very competitive price, excellent reliability, knowledgeable responsive customer service and, did we mention 100Mbps internet service? “We’ve already referred one of our clients to Spectrum Business,” said Pennington. “Our clients respect us for our technology expertise so when they ask for a recommendation, they expect us to give them good advice. We’re suggesting they talk to Spectrum Business. At Not Rocket Science we aim to ignite positive business change through the innovative use of information technology. Spectrum Business helps us accomplish that goal.”

 

"What we receive through Spectrum Business is ample bandwidth at a great price. We currently save money over what we used to spend, and we’re getting a lot more for it."
