Partnering for Success

Recently, LanYap Networks and Matrix partnered on a deal for a company that provides eco-friendly, natural, organic products for home lawn, garden, and farm care. The company offers a range of live biological pest control products for flies and plant pests through its retail location and online store. Here’s a quick breakdown of the project. 

Business Challenge: An innovator in the organics industry, the organization’s executive leaders realized they were quickly outgrowing their locally-run ‘business-grade’ technology platform. Everything needed a serious upgrade – from the company’s postage system and ordering software to storage software, security solutions, and more.

Solutions: Matrix provided a complete technology solution, transitioning the organization to a hybrid cloud environment.


  • Improved application access – Enjoying faster enterprise-grade broadband internet and leveraging four Wireless Access Points (WAP) for greater reliability and enhanced productivity across the entire facility.
  • Established a secure and scalable cloud computing infrastructure – Virtualized server and hosted Microsoft Exchange service now provides safe, secure and ultra-reliable access to email programs and suite of Microsoft Office products. Also established hosted-desktop services using Citrix.
  • Transitioned shipping and order management apps to the cloud – Shifted shipping application and order management system to run in the cloud for greater performance, reliability, and less maintenance.
  • Upgraded legacy WAN to improve performance – Installed SD-WAN that’s specifically built for hybrid cloud computing. Team can prioritize critical and demanding traffic.

LanYap Networks and Matrix teams are thrilled with the results of the project and are happy to see the customer continue to take their business to the next level. 

“[They are] a great example of an industry leader stretching legacy technology as far as it could possibly go,” said Matrix. “It shows how the right technology, matched with the right people can hugely improve how business is done. Now with their new IT solutions and hybrid cloud scalability, the sky’s the limit.”
