Accomplishing tasks in minutes rather than days

The process for managing IP address allocation at the University of West Georgia was cumbersome and complex. Involving five different groups of people, just getting one new IP address allocated could take four days.

Rob Yawn formed an innovation team to find a tool to help simplify and speed the process, while improving accountability. IPControl™ from BT Diamond IP emerged as the solution of choice. Now IP address allocation is accomplished in just four minutes. That’s great for Rob, while the university can offer swifter student services and faces less business risk.
