Residential sales and lettings firm Hamptons International has signed a three-year £1.6m contract to use Easynet’s next-generation communications network to cut costs.
Hamptons will use Easynet’s MPLS (multi-protocol label switching) network to connect 72 of its sites in the UK and share property and applicant details between offices across the infrastructure.
Hamptons customers will be able to walk into any branch and receive details on properties anywhere in the country. The firm will be able to market vendors' properties actively to any applicants, regardless of their location.
Jon Baker, head of IT services at Hamptons, said, "The high-capacity and resilient network will enable our national office network to increase levels of customer service, and it provides capacity for our future plans."
MPLS technology allows firms to make sure that the most important data gets to the right people quickly, helping to avoid network log-jams.
