By Service Line
Ian Rodgers – CEO Beats Music
“When we first contacted RampRate, we were happy with our current provider but unsure of their ability to scale with our growth. We turned to RampRate for help in sorting out the market specifically as it relates to our needs for scalability and performance. Our previous provider couldn’t touch the price or level of service I was receiving with RampRate and in the end it was a no-brainer. Within 30 hours of our decision- making, we were fully installed and up and running. Not only did RampRate save us an incredible amount of time, resources, and money, but also we know we have the best possible solution for our needs now and far beyond.”
Todd Miller, CIO, SF Chronicle-Hearst
“Keeping us focused, educating us on our options, identifying well qualified suppliers, and operating under tight deadlines were all the things that RampRate did exceptionally well for us. I personally learned a lot from them, and they opened my eyes to the possibilities of outsourcing on a broader scale.”
Michael Montalto, Accenture
“I have had the pleasure of working with the crew at RampRate several times over the last several years. Each time they have saved significant time in negotiating and closing contracts for data center space and managed services, which provided at least 20% savings over what we could have done alone. The RampRate team are extremely knowledgeable in this space and always bring innovation and out of the box thinking to the table.”
Paul Sams, COO, Blizzard Entertainment, creators of World of Warcraft
“RampRate has been my most reliable resource and is ready to perform for us at a moment’s notice. Their inside knowledge and ability to handle high level complex negotiations helped us move fast!”
Paul Santana, Manager of Data Center Operations, eBay
“RampRate was a risk-free proposition money wise. If they didn’t save or create us at least twice their initial fee we’d get a full refund. And with 100 big-name clients, there had to be something there. But I was worried that in negotiating lower rates they might undermine my key relationships. When they came in and said they could carve out 27% savings and optimizing contracts, I thought it was impossible without undermining key relationships. But they hit that number and the relationships are stronger than ever.”
Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay
I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere.” We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.
Phil Wiser, CTO Hearst, formerly Sony and Liquid Audio
“ For over a dozen years, RampRate helped my companies understand the differences between suppliers and worked with us to create the methodology, define the metrics and utilize the proper QoS tools needed to choose the supplier best suited to our needs or restructuring through tailoring solutions. RampRate knows this business better than anyone. We literally saved months of time and optimized our infrastructure spend time and time again.” They saved us millions, created agility and new budget out of thin air”.
