JAS Forwarding Worldwide Delivers Information in Real-Time to Customers With Aryaka

Leading Global Freight Forwarder Achieves Application Performance Consistency Throughout the Global Enterprise

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) -  Aryaka®, the leading 'As-A-Service' provider of WAN Optimization, NetworkApplication Delivery and Cloud Networks, today announced that JAS Forwarding Worldwide, a recognized leader in global freight forwarding and logistics, has selected Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service to provide a fast, LAN-like user experience to their globally distributed employees.

JAS Forwarding Worldwide set out to standardize their multiple information management systems, which were dispersed throughout hundreds of offices on all six major continents. To this end, they wanted to implement CargoWiseOne (formally known as ediEnterprise), an ERP solution for logistic service providers, for their globally distributed workforce of 3800+ employees. CargoWise is a centralized SaaS application based on HTTPS, and may potential run very slowly over long distances. In order to provide the same experience for all their employees worldwide, JAS needed to revamp their network with a solution that was cost-effective, could be quickly implemented, could give seamless access to applications across continents and also accommodate future growth. This was impossible to achieve with any of the traditional WAN optimization solutions and JAS was looking for the perfect innovation.

JAS chose Aryaka's WAN Optimization as-a-Service, a solution that combines Aryaka's cloud-based, purpose-built WAN Optimization technology with enterprise-grade connectivity to improve application performance. Since deploying Aryaka, the company has experienced:

  • Up to 270% burst over the subscribed bandwidth
  • Up to 300x faster TCP connection
  • Up to 95x compression rate
  • Quick implementation and built-in redundancy
  • A fully managed service with 24/7 support

Based on early success with Aryaka, JAS has commenced a global deployment of Aryaka's solution, which is projected to come in significantly under their initial budget for the project. They anticipate the project to be completed ahead of schedule by mid-2015. 

"In freight forwarding, our customers demand updates on the status of their products in real-time -- especially when those products include expensive luxury goods," said Mark Baker, CIO of JAS Forwarding Worldwide. "In order to deliver this, JAS required a secure, high-speed network but the investment that it takes to build this kind of network is enormous. With Aryaka, not only were we able to improve the application performance significantly, but the fully-managed service was a huge sell for us as well. Now we had a reliable network with management built-in globally and support staff on demand. A simple, cost-effective solution with no maintenance or capital expenditure -- Aryaka was the perfect answer to the challenge we faced."
