Lumen launches new digital buying experience

Businesses can configure, order, and purchase products in minutes using an online portal

Lumen  announced today it is simplifying the way businesses buy their networking, edge cloud and security solutions. These products can now be configured, ordered, purchased and rapidly deployed through a new self-service online portal.

“In September, we introduced the Lumen technology platform for delivering the application and data services that are vital to our clients’ success. This new digital buying experience is a foundational part of that,” said Shaun Andrews, Lumen chief marketing officer. “Through an online portal, businesses can easily price and order products on demand, with just a few clicks. This do-it-yourself experience is one that our clients have been requesting to help them be more responsive to their specific business needs. The quick deployment of services can help businesses do amazing things in this 4th Industrial Revolution.”
