Azzurri Communications wins £2million of new business in Leeds
Leeds - Leading communications and technology company, Azzurri Communications, is going from strength to strength in Leeds, with the announcement of six business deals worth a total of £2million.
The success means that Azzurri Communications is managing the IT and telecoms infrastructures for five major new clients in the region, including Sentinel Newspapers, Fleet Factors, Thistle Hotels, Associated British Ports and Russell & Bromley. The company has also extended its relationship with Oyez Straker, the UK's leading business services and office supplies specialist.
Providing network consultancy services, secure access, bespoke managed services and IP telephony, Azzurri Communications will ensure that these customers can focus on their core business activities whilst improving productivity, resulting in reduced down time, lower capital and operational costs, as well as reduced training and HR overheads.
"Our portfolio of services means that we can offer our customers a complete voice and data package," says Jonathan Bunney, corporate solutions director at Azzurri Communications. "Not only can we provide auditing, implementation and ongoing management of converged voice and data communications, but a wide range of secure access services. As more companies look to consolidate their suppliers, end-to-end solutions such as this are proving essential in the marketplace."
This new business follows the recent expansion of Azzurri Communications' Leeds office through a £500,000 investment in its hi-tech Network Operations Centre. The site grew by over 30% in 2005, which has resulted in over 30 new jobs being created in the region.
