Trustford create an immersive, digitally-led customer experience

Food giant Greencore has begun its ambitious long term IT overhaul with a major core infrastructure project across its 25 sites throughout the US, UK and Ireland.

TrustFord, the UK’s largest, dedicated Ford dealer group, has partnered with cloud and managed services provider, ANS Group, to transform the performance of its network and IT systems with a Wide Area Network (WAN) solution.

The company – which has 60 sites across the UK offering sales, servicing and repairs – will also enjoy significantly higher bandwidth, faster network speeds and direct public cloud connectivity, allowing it to run more applications with increased efficiency. This will enable them to better engage with customers at its dealerships through technology, transform its internal communications and futureproof its network infrastructure.

The project will enable TrustFord to accelerate the introduction of the FordStore concept into dealerships, which creates an immersive, digitally-led experience for customers through interactive displays, a dedicated app and video content. The WAN will also deliver improved connectivity between sites by enabling next-generation video conferencing applications, and facilitating remote working.

On top of this, the cloud-ready network will deliver TrustFord customers up-to-date ‘smart’ car software and updates as they are developed and released by Ford.

TrustFord is leading the way in the motor industry, and it has been quick to adopt the latest technology in order to deliver a better experience for both customers and staff. We are looking forward to the start of a very successful working relationship and supporting TrustFord’s growth through technology.
