London - SAS Global Communications, an international provider of managed and professional network services, has announced that during the last twelve months to August 2008 it delivered over £27 million worth of new business contracts for BT’s wide area networks and private circuits under the BT Business ICT solution Partner programme (ICTSPP).
The provision of SAS managed services to support its new contracts contributed a further £2.2 million to the total BT ICTSPP contract value for the year, enabling SAS to retain its position as one of the UK’s largest distributors of BT products and services, and further cementing its reputation as a leader in the converged network marketplace.
“We’ve been delighted by our achievements with the BT ICT Solution Partner Programme from a standing start,” said Charles Davis, CEO of SAS Global Communications. “In addition, the level of customer satisfaction reported has been outstanding; without exception, each customer is now fully committed to BT and their investment in the company has also increased.”
Across its business in general, SAS has also experienced significant growth in the take-up of its managed services by customers. Davis believes this is because large organisations are now recognising the value of paying for a more comprehensive management service than typically available through a network carrier.
“More and more companies are finding that the challenges of convergence are just too great to manage in-house. As a result, managed services is really coming of age and SAS, as an expert in this field, is ideally placed to support customers, particularly those with large or complex network infrastructures,” concluded Davis
