The Select Family of Staffing Companies is a top ten industry leader with a national network of over 400 offices. Headquartered in Santa Barbara, CA with offices across the nation.
When Select first started working with Impulse over 10 years ago the company had just a few dozen branch offices; today the organization has over 400.
Select Staffing is an aggressive growth company with over 80 acquisitions consummated during the past two decades. This created the challenge of integrating key regional offices into a single phone system, one that quickly bring up phones in new offices and make relocating them easy. Select also needed to create a high availability Data Center in California with a Disaster Recovery Hot Site in Texas to collect time card data from over 400 locations and thousands of employees.
Impulse designed Select Staffing’s entire WAN and telecom infrastructure including redundant Internet feeds, a robust Cisco networking topology, and our ClearStar hosted phone system. Impulse enables Select to quickly activate telephones across the nation using a single vendor for the phone system, phone service, Internet, and network design as well as ongoing management. Using the flexibility of ClearStar Select has a call center that spans the entire globe from Santa Barbara, to Florida, to India.
Impulse has also played an integral role in the design of both of Select's primary data centers, including the implementation of their own AS number and BGP for seamless failover across redundant fiber connections in Santa Barbara, CA and El Paso, TX. To optimize file transfers between these sites Impulse manages Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) appliances.
Email from Rob Hale VP of IS
I thought that on this day it would be appropriate to say how GREAT of a job your company is doing for us. So THANKS for NOTHING! Which really translates to THANKS for NO OUTAGES, INSTABILITY ETC. nothing bad.
In addition to “nothing” I need to say thank you for the following “not nothing” things:
1. Thanks for a crystal clear and stable VOIP system that spans a dozen locations across the US and India for hundreds of employees.
2. Thanks for a high performance, totally redundant and extremely UP Internet and WAN backbone connectivity.
3. Thanks for the excellent service that you/Impulse provides technically, professionally and friendly to boot.
4. Thanks for being price competitive and not taking advantage of us, but rather always giving Select the benefit of the doubt.
Impulse is truly a fine partner and I’m delighted to have this relationship for so many years now, 14 years to be exact. Finally, it is this kind of flexible and responsive partnership with Impulse that has provided Select the infrastructure to grown as seamlessly as it has to the one of the top ten largest staffing companies in the world.
