Hewden, the UK’s largest plant hire company, has renewed its £20m outsourcing deal with BT, which will be its fully managed network IT services provider.
The deal lays the foundation for Hewden to implement a new technology plan, starting with the replacement of old legacy servers as it adopts a new enterprise resource planning platform.
BT will install and manage an entirely new multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) network across 100 sites in Hewden’s estate, and replace Hewden’s old green-screen terminals with up-to-date PCs.
Hewden will also have all of its sales and mobile working staff using 3G mobile laptops for the first time, increasing flexibility and efficiency.
Doug Sprout, CEO at Hewden, said, “We want to remove barriers to consistently exceeding customer expectations. This project is a vital element of that strategy.”
