Anthony Marano Company

Project Description:
With an average of 3,000 orders a day, answering a call is essential to maintaining Maranos competitive advantage. The fresh produce distributer gave employees Nokia E51 and E61 Series smart phones with Agito's Roam Anywhere server. The technology provides full wireless voice service not only outdoors but also within the metal and concrete walls of its distrubtion center, which before inhibited wireless service.
