Brunel improves worldwide collaboration with network and unified communications from Orange

  • Business VPN keeps consultants connected in 100+ offices in 24 countries
  • Includes Business Together as a Service for UCC in the cloud

Specialist recruitment consultancy Brunel International has extended collaboration throughout the company with global network services and unified communications from Orange Business. This 5-year contract renewal builds on the strong partnership between the two companies.

Orange Business has deployed a global wide area network (WAN) based on Business VPN for Brunel. Connecting 109 branch offices in 24 countries, the network provides Brunel with flexible, secure connectivity and quality performance. Support and management is delivered by local specialists and supported by a strong global team.

In addition, the contract includes Business Together as a Service – a cloud-based unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solution. With this solution, employees are able to access unified messaging, all from the Orange cloud. It allows them to access collaboration tools and work effectively with their colleagues and partners wherever they are from their computer, tablet, smartphone or PDA.

Orange named a leader in the UCC market

IDC MarketScape named Orange Business last month as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide UCaaS Service Provider 2015 Vendor Assessment (doc #US40612315, December 2015). Among the strengths cited is the ability to handle the global needs of multinational companies, with Orange UCC services available in more than 80 countries in Europe, Asia Pacific, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa.

“Facilitating an effective, flexible and secure environment for Brunel employees worldwide means not taking any unnecessary risks with our connectivity. We chose Orange Business to help us standardize our business processes and to provide continuity and manageability of our infrastructure,” says Stefan de Boer, Manager Global IT at Brunel.

“Multinational corporations such as Brunel need to ensure that their consultants can work anywhere and at any time. To this end, Brunel chose a fully managed solution for their dynamic environment from Orange Business. The winning factor in choosing Orange was our pragmatic, business-focused approach to solving their connectivity challenge. Orange Business provides a stable, worldwide solution that Brunel can rely on,” said Anne-Sophie Lotgering, senior vice president for Europe, Russia and CIS, Orange Business.
