Visionlab selects BT to run its network services
BT has been selected by leading Spanish optician group Visionlab to manage its network services and its corporate Internet access, bringing greater performance and increased bandwidth.
The BT iVPN service supplied to Visionlab will help improve productivity, by managing and prioritising data traffic across all of Visionlab’s networks. In the first stage, business applications will be optimised, setting up the necessary infrastructure for voice and video to be implemented in the near future.
With BT’s iVPN service, Visionlab centres will benefit from improved IT network management and performance, optimised business applications and reduced operational and technical costs.
“In this climate of financial adjustment, the only way we can guarantee maximum commitment to quality and service is by innovating in all our operational areas and using top-level information systems” according to Félix Calero, Organisation and Systems Director at Visionlab. “In this sense, networked IT services are really important given the decentralised nature of our company. We have found in BT a strategic supplier capable of offering highly efficient services and solutions which reduce costs and increase our productivity.”
Jacinto Cavestany VP of BT Global Services for Iberia and Latin America said, “BT is proud to have Visionlab as a customer. We are continuing to attract new business thanks to the quality of our services and solutions. Organisations need a trustworthy provider with a successful track record to handle their network services.”
VisionLab will benefit from using BT’s iVPN service as it will deliver considerable savings through increased efficiencies. It will ensure automated delivery assurance, real time reports and incident notifications, among other features. BT iVPN has been specifically engineered to support a range of powerful, managed application services that can radically improve business processes and overall operational efficiency.
With around 900 professionals and 400 opticians, Visionlab is one of the leading opticians groups in Spain and Portugal, with more than 135 outlets which have become a European reference in ophthalmology services, and is also a next-generation lens manufacturer.
