One Workspace Transforms ICT into Utility ‘Pay-as-you-go’ Service
IP Expo, Stand 416, London, UK, 20th October 2010 – niu Solutions, an ICT services provider created from the acquisition and integration of some of the UK’s fastest growing IT and telecoms companies, today launches One Workspace, a pay-as-you-go managed service that integrates all the features of a corporate office environment into one virtualised offering. Recently implemented at Metro Bank, One Workspace helps businesses consume ICT ‘as-a-service’ that is custom-built, innovative, resilient, and secure.
Encompassing hosted voice, data, and desktop services, and accessible from any location or device with an Internet connection, One Workspace enables organisations to take advantage of an innovative and secure ICT platform with the elasticity to scale and adapt to changeable markets and new technologies.
“One Workspace is a highly functional and flexible managed service that allows organisations to exploit and negotiate their own business transformation,” explains Gary Woodward, Chief Executive of niu. “Consumed as a utility service, it enables organisations to use as much or as little ICT infrastructure or capacity as business demands, and provides a robust business continuity and disaster recovery strategy.”
Hosted from dual data centres in the UK, One Workspace incorporates key security features and 24/7 support as standard, and has a selection of service modules from which businesses can build a bespoke IT architecture. These modules include:
• Hosted virtual desktop
• Hosted voice – fixed, mobile and soft phone functionality
• Hosted collaboration and unified communications
• Enhanced security and compliance
• Secure remote access
• Hosted servers and applications.
Woodward concludes, “One Workspace is meeting demand for a new wave in managed service design and delivery. Businesses want proven expertise and like the concept of ICT ‘as-a-service’. The fact that niu de-risks the process by providing SLAs based on frontline services as opposed to ICT functions is particularly compelling.
“Furthermore, as a modular service and evolving architecture, businesses can take comfort from having an upgrade path for future ICT requirements, and avoid becoming technology dead-ended. Having removed the constraints of ongoing procurement, installation, configuration and maintenance, One Workspace gives businesses absolute freedom to utilise technology as an enabler.”
A fresh choice for managed business solutions and a trusted source of IT, voice, data and telecoms know how: niu creates unified solutions, implemented on-site or delivered ‘as-a -service’. Borne out of the acquisition and integration of Telinet, EVD, Pasporte and Ipitomi, few if any, IT and telecoms providers can offer the breadth and depth of expertise that is inherent within niu.
Employing more than 200 people, niu forecasts a turnover in excess of £50 million and has over 40 years experience in servicing thousands of customers across all industry sectors. niu vendor partners include market leaders IBM, Orange Business Systems, Cisco, Microsoft, VMware, Mitel, Avaya and T-Mobile.
