We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting Metro Bank with the management and operation of its Wide Area Network infrastructure. We will be supplying and managing the bank's core infrastructure, comprising Wide Area Network, Internet, Wi-Fi and Local Area Network platforms.
Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, was the first new UK high street bank to launch in over 100 years. It offers retail, business, commercial and private banking services and is focussed on providing customers with a superior banking experience through whichever channel they choose.
John Rabbetts, Director of Live Operations at Metro Bank commented: “We pride ourselves on offering customers unparalleled levels of service and convenience, which means the infrastructure we use needs to be second to none. SAS showed it could provide a fully integrated and managed solution, tailored to our needs and with migration and future network transformation plans that we could believe in.
SAS Sales Director, Mike Stichbury, added: "We differentiate by offering multi-carrier, multi-technology hybrid WAN capabilities that optimise performance, cost and speed of delivery. Our flexible, managed networks put the customer, rather than the carrier, in charge of their ICT strategy. This contract is a testament to our expertise, our customer focused ethos and our ability to deliver innovative services that exactly match what our customers need."
John continued: "In addition to its technical expertise and track record in supporting businesses similar to ours, SAS’s values and focus on customer service meant it was a great cultural fit for Metro Bank. We look forward to working with the SAS team in supporting our growth plans to support even more people across the UK.”
