Single Path deploys a Unified Communications Solution allowing
Amata Office Suites to leverage its network assets.

Business Challenge
Chicago, Illinois-based Amata, LLC, is a business with a unique approach to attracting customers. Incorporated in 2002 as a print brokerage house, today Amata is the largest privately held executive office suites provider in Chicago. With several state-of-the-art facilities located throughout the Chicago area, Amata provides full- and part-time office solutions to companies of all sizes. Amata provides customized solutions to address each client’s needs.

“We were approached by Single Path, a premier provider of converged communications for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) in the Chicago area, specializing in Unified Communication platform solutions,” says Ron Bockstahler, Amata’s CEO.

Of equal importance to the company was security. “A converged network implemented by Single Path could offer both Amata and its clients robust security to protect sensitive data.”

The Solution

Single Path recommended that Amata install a fully converged Unified Communications platform, which would serve to meet both the company’s data networking and communications needs. Single Path deployed redundant routers and switches, a wireless network, firewalls, and a messaging solution.

Wireless access points are installed at key locations throughout the suites, which allow Amata clients to access the network both from their own individual offices and all common areas and conference rooms on the entire floor.

The Results

“Single Path has provided the training our staff needs to enable them to support our clients. And often, the Single Path team will recognize an event on the network and resolve it before it ever becomes a problem for either our company or our clients. The service Single Path has provided has been excellent.” says Bockstahler.
