Hendrix Genetics chose Orange network connectivity to support its focus on quality and digital transformation.

Issues and challenges

Hendrix Genetics is a multi-species animal breeding, genetics and technology company based in Boxmeer, Netherlands. The company has around 3,000 employees and operations and joint ventures in 24 countries around the world.

Rapid business growth and the need to continue to drive product quality were placing pressure on the legacy communications infrastructure. To address this, a new IT strategy and plan was developed to 2020 and beyond for connectivity, CRM, security and workspaces. Pivotal to the success of this plan was the sourcing of a network provider with global reach.

"Not only do we want to grow financially, we also want to improve the quality of our products and services. Expansion means our IT systems have to become integrated, including our CRM systems. Because of our expanding activities all around the world, we were searching for a reliable service provider with a network that can match our footprint, but also with the experience to support us as a consultant. Orange Business checks all those boxes."
