Contract includes the management of 4,500 O2 mobile connections, IP telephone system and new Cloud network

UC dealer Azzurri has signed a three year deal with waste management company Biffa which includes call centre services, fixed-line and mobile services.

Included in the contract is a new Cloud WAN network in its 200 UK sites, 4,500 O2 mobile connections, call centre refit, IP telephone system comprising 2,500 new SIP endpoints and an upgrade of its existing Cisco handsets.

Under the deal the firm’s entire communications estate will be managed by Azzurri.

Biffa IT director David Gooding said: “We have been transforming our business to best meet the needs of our customers and a vital part of facilitating that is possessing first-class ICT and telecommunications. We believe a unified communications model, integrated and managed by one expert supplier is the best way to deliver the agility and the efficiencies we’re seeking, which is why we’ve chosen Azzurri.”

Azzurri CEO Vim Vithaldas (pictured) added: “More and more customers are recognising the business benefits and cost efficiencies that a well-planned UC implementation can deliver. Very few firms have the expertise and skill to roll out such a ground-breaking project, so we’re delighted to have won the contract and we look forward to helping Biffa achieve their corporate goals.”
