Graham & Brown are a family owned company at the cutting edge of design and colour within the home improvement market. Their products are retailed throughout major DIY outlets in the UK, North America and Europe as well as over 150 Graham & Brown branded outlets across high growth overseas markets.
When Graham & Brown began preparing themselves for substantial global business growth and change, they embarked on finding a technical partner to help them develop the group local area network and wide area network strategy. As with many companies looking to scale up, they faced challenges and pressures on their legacy network, including capacity issues, resilience requirements and cultural differences in operability. Their existing network (both LAN and WAN) was suitable for their business requirements when the infrastructure was first installed, but as the business continued to grow, Graham & Brown required a more resilient and flexible network to accommodate their evolving requirements.
To fulfil this requirement, Graham & Brown turned to ANS to design and implement a WAN and LAN solution. ANS’ exceptional technical ability, innovative design and reputation for customer care were key factors in their decision to engage with us.
ANS has enabled us to further our global reach and provide enterprise applications, wherever and whenever they are needed. Mike Williams, Head of IT, Graham & Brown
Since the installation of their LAN and WAN networks, Graham & Brown have received increased resiliency across their network which has seen a reduction in downtime. The installation of a Hybrid WAN has given Graham & Brown a more versatile and cost-effective way to connect to their offices. An increasing reliance on a fast, stable internet connection is no longer a challenge as Graham & Brown can now depend on ANS’ infrastructure to support an extremely scalable secure and reliable internet connection which is able to provision their continued growth ambitions.
