Xseed’s business challenge
In order to securely connect their end users to Microsoft Azure, Xseed sought dedicated connectivity. They needed a solution which was high in quality and stability. Furthermore, they needed the solution to be operational within a short period of time to fit into their tight timeline.
Not only does Colt supply bandwidth-guaranteed network services as direct connectivity for Azure, no other supplier was able to meet Xseed’s short delivery deadlines. The ability to meet these deadlines was key in Xseed’s choice of supplier, as was Colt’s extensive experience and expertise in serving financial-industry organizations. Furthermore, Colt was able to provide superior value vs. cost.
In collaboration with Colt’s cloud connectivity, Xseed is now in a position to offer users comprehensive solutions. Xseed is also looking forward to continuing this partnership and creating new business opportunities to expand their cloud business.
Colt’s highly reliable, secure, and dedicated connectivity to Azure was the answer to our end users’ requirements. In partnership with Colt, we were able to successfully implement an online payment system containing confidential data for our customers. This has given us the confidence to expand business further.Satoru Takebayashi, Director, Chief Operating Officer, Xseed Co., Ltd.
