Alphapointe’s Fiber Solution Creates Life-Changing Opportunities for People With Vision Loss
"We use the Internet to drive adaptive technologies and apps that help our students [connect with] resources and options never even imagined a few years ago." – Reinhard Mabry, President, Alphapointe
Since 2009, Alphapointe has relied on its Spectrum Enterprise solution to support business operations, jobs, online retailing and training for people with low vision. With the ability to navigate technology like tablets and smartphones becoming critical, Alphapointe needed its network to support new applications and initiatives. Plus, as a 2014 merger doubled its size, Alphapointe needed connectivity for its eight locations in Arkansas, Nebraska and Missouri, and for the new enterprise, New York City Industries for the Blind.
Doubling in size without doubling the infrastructure
Alphapointe’s fiber-based DIA and PRI solutions helped bring the new location onto the network quickly and within the existing infrastructure. The reliability and scalability of Spectrum Enterprise solutions continues to propel retail operations for products Alphapointe employees manufacture, as well as Alphapointe’s 60-seat call center business plus training on accessible software and services that gives people with vision loss keep up with peers—and with life.
