10ZiG’s UK operation was expanding and CTO Kevin Greenway wanted to support and drive this business growth. When the UK office moved to larger premises, Kevin wanted staff to be able to work productively in the expanded facilities, including the larger offices, meeting spaces and training rooms.
“10ZiG use Citrix and VMware to help our mutual customers and partners, so it was essential that these modern workspaces were available throughout the building for 10ZiG staff,” Kevin says.
Kevin saw opportunities to improve communication between staff in different locations, as well as with partners and suppliers. “We’d recently moved to an Office 365 subscription and we were integrating Microsoft Teams, which staff use for instant messaging and collaboration. We wanted to improve communication between staff, partners and suppliers, using Teams Video Calls.” Kevin was also behind modernising the UK office’s telephony platform. The existing platform was becoming more of a problem as 10ZiG expanded outside of the UK, to customers in Europe and the Middle East.
“We had a lower capacity link to the internet and wanted to find lower cost methods of calling Europe and the Middle East, while also providing a means for video calls, a VPN link to our main office in Phoenix, plus general internet usage,” he says.
