ImagineDesign Gets Creative with Comcast Business Class Internet and Business
New High-Performance Internet and Voice Service Reduce Costs by $150 per Month
for Creative Services Firm
BALTIMORE, Nov. 28, 2012
BALTIMORE, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Comcast Corporation, one of the
nation's leading providers of information and communications products and
services, today announced that ImagineDesign, a national integrated marketing
firm based in Manassas, Virginia, has selected Comcast Business Class Internet
and Comcast Business VoiceEdge™ for its data and voice communications needs.
With Internet service from Comcast, recently named the fastest Business
Internet Provider by PC Mag for the second year in a row, ImagineDesign is
able to transfer bandwidth-intensive video and graphics files used in the
firm's creative and production processes. Having Comcast's Business VoiceEdge
service also allows company employees to more easily communicate with clients
and colleagues with advanced communication and collaboration features. In
addition to improved reliability, the new data and voice services will save
ImagineDesign in reduced communications costs.
ImagineDesign offers a range of integrated marketing services for its clients,
including graphic and Web design, TV commercial storyboarding, production and
media placement, search engine optimization (SEO) and social media. This type
of work often leads to the creation of large image and video files that must
be transferred quickly to foster collaboration and meet client deadlines. With
decades of investment by Comcast in building infrastructure to make its
advanced network available to meet the bandwidth needs of business customers,
ImagineDesign was able to increase its bandwidth to 27 Mbps, with the ability
to add more capacity in the future.
ImagineDesign also improved the reliability of its phone system with the
addition of Comcast Business VoiceEdge, and can take advantage of advanced
Unified Communications (UC) features from this cloud-based platform.
Previously, the firm used T1 lines (1.5 Mbps) and a virtual PBX from another
provider, but experienced slow Internet service as well as dropped phone
"Since switching to Comcast, we have significantly increased the reliability
of our phone service, which is critical for communicating with clients," said
Patrick King, founder and executive creative director of ImagineDesign.
"Comcast helps us make sure that we don't miss any calls, and the UC features
of Business VoiceEdge can help us to be more productive when working with
multiple clients and projects."
ImagineDesign's client roster spans a wide range of industries, including
commercial construction, healthcare, legal, non-profit, real estate and
technology. These clients have diverse marketing and branding needs and often
require tight deadlines. In addition to helping to speed the firm's creative
process and client service efforts, ImagineDesign also uses Comcast Business
Class TV to provide employees and visiting clients with access to news and
entertainment while in the office.
"Comcast's Business VoiceEdge simplifies communications for growing marketing
firms like ImagineDesign, and this cloud-based offering can easily expand with
the company as its business grows," said John Whalen, regional vice president
for Comcast Business Services. "ImagineDesign is a classic example of a
fast-moving organization that needs a reliable voice system to conduct its
day-to-day business, as well as increased Internet speeds to assist its
clients and meet critical deadlines."
