Attenda Limited, the Always On Managed Services company and carrier THUS plc are working together to provide clients with one cohesive solution that ensures application availability from network connection through to desktop.
Phil Male, COO, THUS, said “Attenda and THUS have complementary specialist skills and we are both committed to the highest standards of quality. We plan to ensure clients’ infrastructures work even more efficiently through both networked application management and fully converged communications.”
Mark Fowle, CEO of Attenda commented “Our joint vision is to provide a value-for-money Single Service Level Agreement at a fixed fee. This will minimise the number of suppliers that our clients have to deal with yet give them the very best specialist capability at the most cost-effective price. This agreement creates joint resources that cannot be matched by a single company and provides a new, highly-efficient model for delivering business processes and sharing data.”
Attenda’s expertise in SAP, Microsoft Exchange, Web Applications and Citrix managed services is now available to THUS customers.
Attenda and THUS already have a number of clients in common, including DX, which has just ordered more than £700K worth of THUS MPLS network connectivity for its 36 sorting offices. “Attenda add value to what we do; they are excellent partners” said Sean O‘Donahue, Director of Technology at DX. “I was happy to accept their recommendation of THUS, knowing that I will continue to benefit from the advice and expertise we gain through our existing service management relationship.”
THUS specialises in the corporate and SME markets, providing a range of voice, data and internet services through the THUS and Demon brands. It operates one of the most technically-advanced telecommunications networks in the UK
