Citrix Powering HyLife Around the Clock and Globe
Company enables a unified digital work experience that engages employees and keeps them productive 24X7
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – May 14, 2019 – In 1994, three brothers joined resources to fulfill a common vision: to create the most efficient, integrated operating structure for the production of hogs. To make their vision a reality, they formed HyLife, which has grown to become a global business employing over 2,000 employees in six different countries.
HyLife’s commitment to service, integrity, and sustainability has set the company apart as Canada’s leading pork producer and global exporter of high-quality pork products, and their priority to take care of their employees, customers, and communities has earned them the distinction of Platinum Member in Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies. Next week, HyLife will discuss how it has managed its growth using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) to deliver a unified digital work experience that helps keep their team productive and engaged. The company will participate in a Fireside Chat at Citrix Synergy, the premier digital work conference set to take place at the Georgia World Congress May 21-23.
“We’re a 24x7 operation, and our organization relies on technology and systems to be up at all times,” said Oscar Reimer, Technology Development & Projects Manager at HyLife. “We also have an ownership team that will ask for anything at any time, which requires us to be extremely agile. Citrix has allowed us to design and maintain systems that give us high performance, scalability, and resiliency that our business demands.”
Using a range of Citrix solutions, HyLife has centralized its IT infrastructure and virtualized apps to deliver a reliable, high-quality experience for its employees that is delivering results.
With Citrix® Virtual Apps and Desktops, HyLife is able to:
- Provide access to all of the apps and content employees need to work anytime across any device.
- Centrally manage all apps and desktops in one location to simplify rolling out updates, patches, and new applications.
Reimer adds that this is critical in delivering a consistent experience to all users, regardless of where they are working. “We have many sites in very rural areas with limited Internet service so access to fast, quality links is a challenge,” he said.
With Citrix SD-WAN, HyLife can overcome these challenges, leveraging technology that allows them to:
- Deliver an always-on experience that prioritizes business-critical applications
- Optimize last-mile connectivity by aggregating multiple ISP links
- Mitigate network disruption through seamless failover that occurs in milliseconds
“With the implementation of Citrix SD-WAN in our datacenters, network outages have become a thing of the past, and we’ve seen dramatic improvements in the performance of our core applications,” Reimer notes.
HyLife joins more than 400,000 organizations around the world who use Citrix solutions to power a simple, intelligent and reliable way to work that engages employees and improves business productivity.
