Since Cologne Trude and Cammy Miller launched Show Me Your Mumu in 2010, they’ve been steadily producing quality clothing for every occasion, from weddings to beach days, with the expectation that buyers will often be shopping from home. As Cologne told Forbes in 2019, “E-comm has always been our top priority, and we strive to deliver a digital shopping experience that is both elevated and at the forefront of online shopping.” Show Me Your Mumu also puts an emphasis on updating its website with interactive features, curating in-house social media content, and collaborating with an expanding squad of influencers.
That’s why when the Show Me Your Mumu team came to The CORE Group for the infrastructure to support massive uploads, we knew their network would require an overhaul — and that they couldn’t afford to press pause on their booming business during implementation.
Evolving the Virtual Environment with Managed IT
As Show Me Your Mumu has grown, so has its need for higher bandwidth speeds. Working with influencers is a huge part of this company’s brand identity — but once these influencers came in to shoot high quality videos, they discovered that the network couldn’t successfully upload such formidable file sizes. That’s where our managed IT services come in. We wanted to make sure this company could easily stream content to its chosen platforms without any major issues and without compromising Wi-Fi speeds — and we wanted to be there to ensure this level of service continued.
Determining the Ideal Internet Speed
When most people think internet speed, they think about how long it takes to get data, not send it. But a slow upload speed can drag down your entire network, and a busy company simply can’t afford that level of lag. In order to choose the best bandwidth for Show Me Your Mumu, The CORE Group did both virtual and on-site assessments to build out a virtual environment that would support this unique demand for bandwidth. Bandwidth requirements vary depending on a number of factors:
- Upstream and downstream bandwidth
- Internet (and background internet) usage
- How many devices connect to your network simultaneously
- Wireless internet bandwidth
To remove guesswork from the equation, we generated a heatmap to locate the company’s trouble areas and updated their internet accordingly to guarantee they’ll always have the speed they need.
Improving Infrastructure, Ensuring Business Continuity
Without interrupting business, our team was able to give this client a new infrastructure that supports both visiting influencers and day-to-day operations. Our managed IT services offered a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that will help Show Me Your Mumu maximize their employee productivity and interactions with influencers for years to come.
