Case Study: NT Voice & Data

Discover how NT Voice & Data boosted revenue by utilising our Cloud & Security portfolio

Since Van Elle was founded in 1984 and listed on AIM in 2016, Van Elle has grown to become the UK’s largest and most diverse ground engineering and geotechnical contractor. They undertake over 1000 projects a year and have built a reputation for delivering safe and innovative solutions and providing high-quality service to their customers.

The Group comprises expert teams that are able to design and deliver optimal techniques across a 120 string UK based rig fleet. Their breadth of capabilities spans open site piling, specialist and restricted access piling, modular foundation systems and a wide range of geotechnical specialisms across the infrastructure, residential and construction sectors.

The challenge

Van Elle was looking for a digital re-structure of their aging on-site server estate which would make daily operations faster, more flexible, and therefore improve productivity.

Some of the factors to consider was the power consumption on current servers, lack of chips for new servers, End of Life coming soon, capital expenditure of new servers, resilience, and security issues of current servers.

The solution

NT Voice & Data partnered with PXC and chose them above other network providers because of their intelligent Software Defined Network, plus the suite of Cloud and Security applications. We met with Van Elle to discuss their current situation, goals and how a digital transformation would benefit them. We were able to demonstrate how they would be able to streamline their services by use of a cloud-based solution and how partnering with PXC would meet these demands.

PXC are the ideal host for an Infrastructure as a Service platform due to their reliability and wide coverage allowing 24/7 connection regardless of location. This flexible, cost-effective solution is directly connected to the PXC data centres to provide swift, resilient hosting, and has been able to offer the Van Elle the level of response required (and expected) from cloud hosting.

A continuing issue across all business is the challenge of keeping customer data and workloads secure. Through partnering with PXC, we've benefited from adding the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to our portfolio. Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud provides a complete suite of data protection products, keeping business data safe. From data backup and disaster recovery to AI-based malware protection, remote desktop management and security, PXC offers protection from all angles.
