In expanding business scenario, connecting new store locations with central office for inter store calling and data sharing was the biggest challenge for IT administrators.
Wellness Forever is strongly dependent on robust IT and communication systems that run 24/7 in order to fulfill its social promises. All the stores must remain connected with each other for voice communications, sale & inventory data exchange and surveillance of store locations with centralized administration.
In expanding business scenario, connecting new store locations with central office for inter-store calling and data sharing was the biggest challenge for IT administrators. Centralized monitoring with remote access to store’s video surveillance systems was another area concern.

Admin executives and IT staff required mobile extension solution for such dynamic workplaces. Wellness Forever’s IT managers were in dilemma as how to streamline different functions working in silos.
Matrix working with Digitek Solutions clearly understood the requirements of Wellness Forever and delivered single box solution – NAVAN CNX200.
