We have a wide range of customers across every sector. We serve businesses of any size, any sector, around the globe. Although many of our customers are UK headquartered and because our customers are buying managed services, the majority of them are mid-sized. The one thing we can say about our customers is that they love doing business wth us which is why we have a Net promoter of over 70. Here's a representative sample of customers to give you a feel for the types of businesses we support.
As a managed service provider, we provide an end to end service but this is underpinned by a broad range of best of breed partners. We specialise in multi-carrier, hybrid networks, so most of our networks draw from a range of carriers. Similarly, we are agnostic about network vendors so we've partnered with a range of best of breed vendors to suit the wide range of needs our customers have. Here's a sample of some of our partners.
We run our customers’ corporate data networks. Our innovations connect their new sites faster, make their applications faster and give them better service and lower cost than they’ve had before. We’re making them more successful by approaching their networks in a different way, with a focus on best practice. This is how we do it.
We serve large and medium-sized business customers, often global but mostly UK-based. We design, deploy and support the networks, the applications and the infrastructure on which they run their businesses. Most are burdened by five key problems that we solve to make them more successful:
Delivery – Corporate networks are complex to deliver. Network providers with manual processes take months to deliver, creating disruption and cost.
Performance – Companies want to be right-first-time and fast, so they build applications to digitise their processes. Many struggle to make applications work well over their networks, wasting time for hundreds of staff.
Service experience – Network providers are notorious for delivery errors, slow changes, unfixed problems and billing errors. This makes the network painful and costly to run.
Skillset – Companies buy managed services to avoid hiring skilled resources but sometimes the provider does not have skills they need urgently. For example, when network performance problems are traced to a database design or server configuration, many providers struggle to fix them.
Cost – Most businesses pay too much for their network. Culprits include lower supply costs that are not passed on and cheaper technologies or designs that are not suggested.
Princes underpins its SAP deployment on Amazon Web Services with a hybrid WAN from SAS. Princes was keen to deploy SAP on Amazon Web Services (AWS) because the platform offered increased agility and flexibility for systems development, as well as significant annual cost savings. To take advantage of these benefits, the company needed to migrate its existing SAP suite of applications from a hosted data centre solution to the cloud.
Finding a partner with knowledge of both SAP and AWS was a prerequisite.It was also essential to have a network infrastructure with the throughput and resilience to enable uninterrupted access for Princes’ 2,500 users. SAS designed and implemented a hybrid WAN solution, working with other project stakeholders to engineer a smooth transition to AWS.
Our client wanted to monitor applications delivered from the UK to a global workforce but could not get essential network intelligence or monitoring capabilities directly from its carrier. SAS designed a bespoke solution that provides real-time reporting and trending analysis for the company’s large global network consisting of over 200 infrastructure devices.
4G WAN CONNECTIVITY
As part of a £1bn+ project to extend and improve the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon, the A14 integrated delivery team needed to establish a fixed line and mobile infrastructure along a 31km stretch of greenfield land. A key objective was to deliver secure access to cloud-based applications for 650 users alongside secure access to several corporate networks (bring your own corporate device, or BYOCD). SAS delivered a secure, agile network that allowed corporate network access, open access for local and cloud services, and roaming between sites.
4G WAN CONNECTIVITY
A European bank Real Estate company experienced a critical network failure, disabling all connectivity between its London HQ and six UK sites. Not only did this represent a 90% loss of data services for its users, it also meant the company would have to wait up to 90 days for a replacement network to be delivered.
An SAS bonded 4G WAN solution was installed and working within five days of initial contact, restoring all site connectivity and providing an effective interim solution while new permanent circuits were sourced.
In total, six regional sites and around 200 staff were affected by the network failure. At five of the sites, SAS installed its standard six-bonded-sim solution, incorporating two to three wireless access points and a single router. A slightly more complex configuration was used for the larger midlands branch.
