Headquartered in Switzerland, goFLUENT’s cloud-based learning solutions combine web and mobile learning applications such as eLearning, Virtual Classrooms and Live Coaching, and video and interactive content, which require real-time accessibility as well as a high-quality viewing experience. The company has selected Pacnet’s Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS), Managed Firewall, and Premium Dedicated Internet Access (PDIA) to extend service to customers located in the APAC region.
“Our collaboration with Pacnet is an important and tactical move that supports our Asia-Pacific expansion strategy, driven by our ongoing mission to provide superior customer service and support. Taking advantage of Pacnet’s enterprise-grade communications infrastructure, we are able to bring higher quality services and solutions to our customers in China and across APAC faster than ever before,” remarked Christophe Ferrandou, CEO of goFLUENT. “With Pacnet’s professional services and expertise, the entire deployment process was very fast and smooth, enabling us to deliver our solution to our customers all over Asia, including China.”
Leveraging Pacnet’s HaaS and Managed Firewall, which helps enterprises to build a reliable defense against the threat of unauthorized access, goFLUENT benefits from a highly secure end-to-end managed service solution and connected business ecosystem.
