“I like that we have the ability to monitor what is going through and what is coming in. It’s so much better at meeting our technology needs and easier to manage than the offerings we’ve had previously,” commented Mathew Holmes, UK IT Infrastructure Manager at Drive DeVilbiss.
After a successful deployment, the IT staff at Drive DeVilbiss have benefited hugely from increased ease of management, and the high-availability of the solution, allowing them to focus on driving forward with more strategic digital aspirations. The team can now connect into a secure network from any site and at any time with a centrally managed internet breakout, instead of from each site, which makes it a lot easier to manage and monitor than their previous setup. With MPLS, Drive DeVilbiss can keep one eye on their network whenever they need to, with statistics, email updates and online monitoring views. They also have support available 24/7 in a package which suits them.
Adam Foster, Technical Director at DIS, stated: “Our working relationship with Node4 is different to other providers we’ve worked with, because it is completely personal. Thanks to Node4’s relationships within the channel, we can work through them and be safe in the knowledge that we will deal with a real person, rather than being stuck on the phone with an automated assistant.”From 2016 to 2018 Node4 and DIS increased joint sales by over 500%. In 2019, these sales grew another 30%. This demonstrates just how successful this partnership has become in recent years, and this impressive year-on-year growth is set to continue well into the future.
