American Furniture Rentals, the second largest furniture rental company in America, is using Comcast Business (NASDAQ:CMCSA) Ethernet to connect its 22 showrooms and warehouses across the country.

"Our company relies heavily on cloud-based programs for store and corporate operations including the inventory management platform, point-of-sales system, etc. so we require reliable Internet service," said Steven Singer, manager of information systems, American Furniture Rentals. "With close to 1.5 million assets to track, our team relies on Comcast's service to gain real-time inventory insight to address customer requests - whether that request is made in a store, over the phone or in the field as the sales team meets with clients."

American Furniture Rentals implemented Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet at each of its 22 retail and warehouse locations with speeds ranging from 100 to 200 Mbps. The company's headquarters in Pennsauken, NJ, which needed more capacity, has 4 Gbps service to enable the field sales team to access the enterprise resource planning (ERP), inventory, point-of-sales and other systems.

"Previously, we had maintained a private network between buildings. However, adding a new branch to this network was extremely difficult. We needed one company that could work with us on a national level to provide all of our locations with high-quality, cost-effective, reliable network services," said Adam Scholnick, CIO of American Furniture Rentals. "Comcast Business rose to the challenge with fast, secure quality of service, and we recently doubled the speed of our network services at each location."

Comcast Business offers Ethernet, Internet, voice, video, managed services and cloud solutions for enterprise and multi-site customers. Comcast can customize a solution for each customer based on specific company or location requirements.
