Communicate Better has overcome fierce competition to win two major unified comms deals with Hatfields and the National Football Museum in Manchester.
The Swinton-based telecoms company has signed a five-year deal worth £500,000 with car dealership Hatfields to replace a legacy system using a host of different suppliers and manufacturers and a consumer-grade network with a high-performance, secure network delivering business grade connectivity.
The new network solution will run all mobile, IP telephony, email, video conferencing, file transfer and data sharing applications. Staff on the move will also be able to remotely access the MPLS network. The deal also includes mobile access and a secure internet break-out from the cloud.
Communicate Better has also won a three-year deal worth £50,000 with the National Football Museum in Manchester to roll out a cutting-edge smartphone technology allowing staff to work remotely while the Museum undergoes a £10m renovation.
The deal is an extension of an existing contract to supply the Museum’s Preston site with a hosted IP telephony system which links both sites and provides a full unified comms deal.
Communicate Better’s IT director Mike Standring said: ‘Our unique approach meant we could put together a three-year plan for supply and support of all cutting-edge technology and connectivity with a full unified comms solution for the National Football Museum.’
Communicate Better CEO Wayne Cartwright said the company continues to deliver strong performance, helping its size and turnover double in 2011.
He added: ‘We are experiencing a high level of growth so far in 2012 and are on target to hit all of our forecasts this financial year. We have secured some fantastic clients and know that working on integrated solutions for our clients is key to our success.’
