With ScaleArc, we were able avoid making costly and disruptive infrastructure changes while reducing catalog page loads to less than a second, increasing overall customer satisfaction.

ScaleArc today announced that Tyndale has selected ScaleArc for SQL Server to ensure the availability and performance of its web-based order entry application. Dedicated to providing apparel that aligns to employers’ requirements and ensures worker safety, Tyndale set out to improve the reliability and performance of its online ordering system. By deploying ScaleArc’s database traffic management software between the databases and the applications, Tyndale was able to significantly reduce the time required to complete online transactions by decreasing catalog page download times.
“In the past, spikes in activity would affect website performance and increase the time it took for customers to load a catalog page,” said Ryan Dudeck, Director of Information Technology for Tyndale. “Because our existing ERP systems were tied to SQL Server 2005, we were at the point where fixing the problem would require costly hardware or software upgrades. With ScaleArc, we were able avoid making costly and disruptive infrastructure changes while reducing catalog page loads to less than a second, increasing overall customer satisfaction.”
Tyndale deployed ScaleArc for SQL Server and immediately noticed a change in both their website and order entry application. Not only were they able to reduce the time to enter orders, they were also better equipped to handle extreme seasonal spikes in activity when workers came online to use their allocated clothing allowances. After deploying ScaleArc, Tyndale immediately experienced a 98 percent increase in website responsiveness.
“Customers like Tyndale come to us with similar challenges – how can they improve application availability and performance without making expensive and time-consuming changes to apps and databases,” said Justin Barney, President and CEO at ScaleArc. “Like with Tyndale, many of our customers get an immediate business benefit – in availability, responsiveness, and customer satisfaction – by deploying ScaleArc. It is an immediate win-win for everyone.”
