Manchester-based ConvergeOne has successfully won a 3-year contract for network redesign and maintenance with prestigious Manchester Law firm Pannone LLP. Coming on the back of recent contract wins with The Football League and Parity Group PLC, the deal is for a 3 year managed services contract for Pannone's network which also includes a technology refresh based on Cisco's Smart Business Architecture methodology.
ConvergeOne was successful in winning the network maintenance renewal contract based on their quick response times and their fresh and intuitive approach to understanding and making recommendations for improving the Pannone network. Although up against incumbent and larger companies for the network contract, ConvergeOne proved that a more agile and client focused approach is a successful combination.
Pannone's IT Director David Griffiths said, "We were highly impressed with ConvergeOne's technical expertise and their proven rapid response times. They were a natural choice for us when the contact for maintenance came up for renewal. In addition, they delivered a flexible network infrastructure that is ready for next generation services and that will support the business going forward."
The network solution proposed is based on Cisco's Smart Business Architecture, which is a Cisco recommended design guide for midsize and enterprise networks. The methodology offers a blueprint for designing and deploying a full service, comprehensive network to support the needs of a business with 100 to 10,000 connected users.
Mark Johnson, Managing Director at ConvergeOne commented, "We're confident that the new network along with our managed services will provide Pannone with a solution that is both secure and cost effective and will grow with the business."
Established in 2007 and a Cisco Premier Partner, ConvergeOne is proving to be a solutions and communications specialist worth watching out for, with new business wins with The Football League, Metropolitan Housing Partnership, Exide Technologies and Parity as well as a move to new offices in Manchester's Media City.
