Jax is the Akamai team’s loyal mascot. He joined the Akamai team in the summer of 2013 and is especially good at alerting us when there is a delivery as well as being a great companion at the office.
Before joining Akamai he had an unknown past. He was found wandering by DIA and put into the Denver Animal Shelter. He ran out of time there and was taken in by Evergreen Animal Protective League. Again, he ran out of time but was taken in by a foster family for a week before he rescued us.
Jax loves to spend time with his pack, fetch balls, sleep, go on hikes, and is happy to clean up any leftovers from dinner.
“My company (Bovidr Laboratories, Inc.) has worked with Akamai-Systems for years. Their commitment to support, fast response to our problems is far & beyond expectations. We originally began with Akamai when we were located in Colorado. Subsequently we relocated to Nebraska. Akamai was so efficient we did not want to change due to the move. Akamai drove to Nebraska, set up our systems and still services our account. Their attention to our needs is something you never see in this day/age. We will never change.”
“As an owner of Spectrum General Contractors we have appreciated the expertise and excellent service we have received since 2001. Peter and Steve are very knowledgeable and up to date on the best technology and options available for a company of our size (60 employees). Akamai also has good common sense in judging when to upgrade – how to best use or pass along older but still functioning equipment. Customer service is also excellent. When a problem arises we call Akamai and they always call back in a timely manner and our great to work with as well. Please feel free to call me about Akamai anytime.”
