It is one year on since Scania (Great Britain) Limited appointed Onecom to transform their communications infrastructure, including the provision of a Unified Communications solution for over 1500 employees across 50 UK sites. Onecom were awarded 2 prestigious awards on the back of this partnership, at the Communications National Awards in October 2016. This was a double celebration for “Best Enterprise Cloud Solution” for the work with Scania, as well as the coveted top prize of “Enterprise Reseller of the Year”.
Scania (Great Britain) Limited, a major supplier to British industry of trucks, buses, coaches and engines for industrial and marine applications, awarded Onecom Communications a multi-million pound contract in 2015, to help them transform their communications estate. After a full review of their telecoms strategy, involving a number of the UK’s largest networks and communications providers, Scania (Great Britain) Limited selected Onecom.
Richard Gray, Finance and Rental Director for Scania (GB) said “with our current system coming to the end of its natural life, we wanted to procure the best possible solution for our business. Our objectives were to improve our ability to provide a first class service to our customers, enhance employee to employee communications, and reduce our infrastructure and telecoms costs across the board.”
“Onecom took us through how their single operational service portal for all services will work, how clear processes will be followed and how governance will be ensured. We have a regular series of executive, account management and service team meetings with Onecom, which are not just about resolving any ongoing issues, but about making the most of our new services at a strategic level.”
Onecom's integrated communications strategy included a new contact centre, a new MPLS network and LAN infrastructure to support unified communications, and mobile network all delivered and managed as a single service. “Onecom grasped our imperative to improve the customer experience, and they clearly demonstrated they understood how to federate and manage new models of cloud-based connectivity to achieve business outcomes.” concluded Richard.
The project was focussed on delivering success in four key areas for Scania (Great Britain), namely :
- Enhancing the customer experience across their 50 UK service centres
- Improving employee to employee communication between the 1000 staff
- Market leading account management, service management and resilience
- Substantial cost reduction
Martin Flick, CEO, Onecom Communications, explains: “Bringing together cloud and mobile connectivity under one integrated managed service is an increasingly popular deployment for Onecom customers, as it increases the ability for employees to contact each other wherever they are working, improving productivity.”
