When connectivity is non-negotiable
Speedcast is the largest remote communications company in the world, utilizing 95 Earth-orbiting satellites to bring voice, data, and network connectivity to all four corners of the globe. More than 3,200 customers in 140 countries—in the maritime, media, mining, energy, telecoms, NGO, and government sectors—rely on Speedcast’s technology and solutions for their operations and digital transformation in some of the most remote locations on the planet.
Keeping the faith
Recently, Speedcast faced a combination of challenges, many of which were as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Already a diverse organization, Speedcast had integrated 16 business acquisitions and was facing financial gaps caused by falling demand. Throughout this complexity, Speedcast maintained its industry leadership position, thanks to one burning conviction and focus—that great customer service will see it through.
The power of one
To make good on its convictions, Speedcast decided to replace multiple, disconnected customer service portals and dispersed customer management systems with just one. This single, personalized view would provide each of its customers with easy access, instant visibility, and the live status of all its services in one place, from anywhere in the world. But achieving this simple and perfectly logical concept would require courage, a ‘root and branch’ business-wide transformation, and great collaboration with its long-standing partner, ServiceNow.
