We are delighted to announce that we shall be supplying and managing the connectivity and IT deployments for Barratt Developments site offices.
Barratt Developments, the UK’s largest home builder, operates many hundreds of sales and site offices across the country. They have selected SAS to provide a one-stop shop for the supply and management of the IT systems and networks required to run these sites.
Barratt Developments says, “This is not an outsource; it is more of a co-source partnership, whereby SAS will become an extension of our own IT team”.
“With their long experience supporting the UK Construction industry, SAS proved their ability to deal with the physical and logistical challenges faced when implementing IT in construction sites”.
“Their automated systems, experienced engineers, well-oiled processes and can-do attitude mean that we can sleep easy; we trust that SAS will be there to take on the challenge of getting our site offices up and running quickly and without drama.”
Mike Stichbury, our Sales Director, says “In a short time we have established a strong and trusted partnership between the Barratt and SAS teams, and we are truly operating as one team.”
“The key to success in this type of contract is where our customers come to rely fully on us to deliver for them, as if we were part of their own team. We're very much look forward to working together with Barratt Developments over the coming years.”
With the increasing prevalence of 4G cellular services across the UK, the majority of the Barratt Development sites will be delivered using multi-sim, multi-carrier mobile broadband for site connectivity and resilience. More traditional connectivity will be used in the remainder.
The IT solution comprises a number of technologies to deliver flexible SD-WAN enabled capabilities, that have been designed to support Barratt Development’s current IT requirements and their future cloud-first strategy.
