The Challenge:

The overall aim was to make The Town Hall a place for local people and groups to meet and work, providing a range of services and activities for businesses and visitors. To make this possible, The Town Hall required suitable IT facilities to meet a range of needs. Broadband in the area is poor and costs had to be kept to a minimum, but extensive, reliable WiFi, a practical telephone system and a secure tenant network were all vital.

Client Profile:

The Town Hall in Hebden Bridge, near Halifax, is a stunning building that had been underused and neglected. In 2010 the Hebden Bridge Community Association took over its ownership, bringing it back to life and making it the hub of the community once more.

  • 30 offices
  • Public spaces and conference facilities
  • Rural community location

The Solution:

razorblue’s team came up with a package of services to offer a state-of-the-art IT solution at a cost-effective price using a combination of their Fibre connectivity services, Hosted Telephony and special managed services for Multi-Tenant buildings:

  • 30 MB of dedicated bandwidth over fibre was installed providing tenants and members of the public using The Town Hall with fast, reliable WiFi.
  • A VoIP system saved hundreds of pounds on expensive onsite telephone systems, by using razorblue’s hosted solution.

“The Town Hall chose razorblue as our service provider because they provided us with a bespoke solution for our business, they took the time to build a relationship with us, listened and understood how critical our data and telephony services are to our end users. We’ll continue to work with razorblue because we get what we were promised – a seamless service and excellent customer support – and we know that as our business grows and changes, they have the experience and flexibility to help us develop our infrastructure.”

The Result:

Everything is managed and remotely monitored by razorblue, saving thousands on the need for on-site IT management. The Town Hall is now a popular venue for meetings, conferences, events and weddings.
