Xentum Wealth Finance - Office Wireless Case Study
Integrated Office Solutions to Deliver Growth Opportunities
Through natural growth and strong delivery Xentum Wealth Management had outgrown their serviced business premises. They now required an environment that could support the needs of their business and customers going forward.
Moving to a new shell space meant that the business had to invest in a phone system, video conferencing, presentation facilities and IT networking solutions. The challenges to Xentum were to find a provider that could deliver a complete solution while keeping the initial investment costs low and ongoing operating expenses competitive.
PW Wireless Networks were chosen to deliver the solution based on their understanding of the requirement, breadth of technical capability, their ISO 9001quality assurance to deliver the required solutions against a challenging time frame.
Suitable premises were selected and a total strip out of the existing power and data infrastructure was carried out. Following this an Excel CAT5 cabling system was installed to all rooms through dado trunking and concealed drops to maintain the aesthetics of the office. Netgear switches were installed along with Netgear routers to manage the broadband delivery required for Internet Access and VOIP solutions. Netgear Wireless access points were installed to deliver network connectivity to roaming workers and visitors
Overlaid on the physical infrastructure a Hosted Voice solution PWC7000 was installed delivering a low cost point of entry for Xentum with all the functionality of an on premise telephone solution. This solution allows for purchasing extensions as required keeping entry costs low but allowing for significant growth
Presentation facilities included a networked 42 LCD TV to deliver high quality presentations and images to customers allowing access to data internally and externally on the internet. A Polycom digital video conferencing solution was installed to allow face to face meetings with providers without the lost productivity of offsite visits.
Delivery of this total solution was within a 3 week time scale alongside major structural changes to the offices and a total refurbishment. Ongoing support of the solutions as defined by Xentum is provided by PW Wireless Networks giving piece of mind that the solutions are available when required.
"PW Wireless Networks were very helpful in explaining the options available at the outset at a cost which was affordable. They also worked very hard to meet the tight time frame we had for the refit and ensured minimum disruption to our business.
As a growing business, it was important for us to put in place an infrastructure that can be built upon and expanded in the years ahead. I am confident that this is what PW Wireless Networks delivered. We are currently considering merging our business and absorbing the other business within our existing premises will be made a great deal easier because of the systems put in place by PW Wireless Networks."
