THE CHALLENGE

Around 3:30 p.m. on any given day at SPARK Publications, you might find owner Fabi Preslar and her staff of “SPARKlers” having a dance party break in the office. It’s these moments that inspire her staff to continue their expression of creativity in their work, which is critical for an award-winning graphic design firm that specializes in custom publications. In a single year, Preslar estimates that she and her staff design some 5,400 original pages across 76 custom publications – a high volume that requires the skill and teamwork of a close-knit group.

“Having a team that really enjoys coming in each day and being able to fuel their own creativity through client projects is pretty much more than a dream come true,” Preslar says.

SPARK Publications works with clients all over the world, with some local in Charlotte, North Carolina, and others based as far away as Hawaii and England. As her business continued to grow, Preslar realized her internet solution was no longer able to support key operations. For example, each day SPARK Publications connects with clients and vendors through email, their online proofing portal and through high-bandwidth applications like videoconferencing. In addition to managing large file uploads and downloads, they also need to backup large amounts of data each night.

 

THE SOLUTION

When it came time to move to a larger office, Preslar also moved to Spectrum Business high-speed internet and reliable phone services. With Spectrum Business, SPARK Publications has the advanced connectivity solutions to stay connected to clients worldwide so that Preslar and her team are free to focus their energy on igniting the firm’s creative spark into a flame.

With Spectrum Business internet, the business can efficiently manage uploading and downloading large image files through email and their proofing portal and make the most of videoconferencing to connect directly with customers. Now, their reliable high-speed internet connection easily backs up anywhere from six to 10 gigabytes of data overnight. And their three Spectrum Business phone lines allow them to answer calls from new and prospective clients with crystal clear Voice service – even on international calls.

“Having Spectrum Business internet and phone services actually saves us so much time and thought,” Preslar says. “When I don’t have to think about something and it just magically happens. It’s one of those gifts that you take for granted on a daily basis.”

 

THE RESULT

A building powered by Spectrum Business was a requirement in the search for a new office space, says Preslar, who experienced slower internet speeds and service interruptions with another provider in a previous location. Setting up telecommunications in their new office was a seamless process with the help of their local, dedicated Account Manager, who also provided guidance in choosing the right customizable services for their needs. As a bonus, their services are bundled for cost-effectiveness and added convenience, allowing Preslar to focus on the creative side of the business.

 

"It was a wonderful moment to realize that our favorite services through Spectrum Business were actually more affordable for much more reliability."
