The Head office is based in the West End of London, with offices in other parts of London, Croydon and an office in the West Midlands.
A legacy system combined with outdated software left Highdorn frustrated over the systems capabilities, to make matters worse the support from the software supplier was non-existent with no resourcing help or staff-expertise to enable them to utilise the existing tech.
With their existing MPLS with Wavenet, Highdorn were looking for a complete solution all with one supplier meaning there was just one point of contact for all communications whether this is for billing, support or service queries.
With over 200 staff it was essential the solution provided the necessary functionality and reliability for Highdorn with the ability to scale confidently and cost-effectively as the needs of the business grow. An emphasis was also placed on the need for a knowledgeable and experienced team who could support them with new emerging technologies to continue to give them the competitive edge.
As a Wavenet customer for many years, Highdorn reached out to their Account Manager Stephen Harrison to discuss their requirements and gain a better understanding of the solutions Wavenet could offer.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) along with a Hosted Voice option was the chosen solution. Giving Highdorn peace of mind that their business needs would be taken care off, from sourcing new technologies to maintenance and more importantly, delivering significant cost savings.
IaaS from Wavenet helps businesses to connect and scale confidently and cost-effectively. Whether its simple access to shared/dedicated virtual resources, or end-to-end managed services Highdorn can scale their services to match business needs.
With cloud adoption rates continuing to grow in the UK this also gave Highdorn the added benefit of a reliable and resilient remote working solution, one which has proven to be valuable throughout the pandemic allowing Highdorn's staff to work as efficiently and effectively as when they are in the office.
