Why? Not what do I sell or what do I do … but Why?
You’ve got to believe in something. You’ve got to be ABOUT something.
So Why do I do this thing called Alan Spicer Marine Telecom?
I do THIS because I believe I can save marine vessels money on Internet Access. When compared to VSAT usually 3G – 4G Cellular Internet, and WiFi Hotspot, are less expensive (by far) and the Speeds are much faster. You like options and I like options for The Best and the Lowest Price. I.T. guys might call this “Least Cost Routing”. It means for a given location how many options for Internet do we have? And what’s the Best Option for this location? (And can our gear on board work with the best option?)
I do THIS because I believe I can make things Simpler and Easier to use for you Day To Day Internet management tasks. For this reason – How? What system has the best features for things working as automatically as possible? Who wants to have to have 2 routers to change major cellular carrier / provider? Who wants to have to have 2 routers to work in US and International locations? Who wants to have to Manually change Internet Sources whenever you move the boat or come in our out of the U.S.? You want the simplest – easiest system, so do I.
I do THIS because I have a passion for being FIRST … for being “Ahead of the Curve” as far as Internet Access Technologies and Internet Management Systems Capabilities. I strive to know what’s the Fastest and the Best and that is Vendor independent. I may sell and use multiple vendor brands but I want you to have The Best for you. For this reason I have fought many battles on our behalf (on your behalf and my behalf together.) I fight for the latest technologies and the fastest / best Internet speeds. Who wants 1 or 2 year old Technology? You don’t, I don’t. Who wants to have to replace equipment every year or two? You don’t, I don’t. We want the latest stuff and we want it to work and be the best for a few years at least.
A good friend of mine calls me the “I.T. Guy” or “The 1’s and 0’s Guy”. And I do have a passion for the technical details for the How of things are done. But I also have a passion for Fastest, Least Expensive, Easier – Simpler, and Ahead of the Curve Latest and Best.
… That’s the WHY of Why I do this. The How and What has to follow the core principles above.
