The Challenge:

Community Links needed a supplier that could upgrade their infrastructure and address their connectivity issues, requiring a reliable internet connection across their numerous sites.

In addition to this, the organisation continues to grow and acquire other businesses, both the infrastructure and connectivity needs to be replicated to include support for the new acquisitions’ sites and users.

The Solution:

razorblue looked at how Community Links operated and proposed a package of bespoke solutions that would work for them. Firstly, their connectivity was replaced to with a more robust and reliable solution, through a leased line. They now have their own dedicated bandwidth with superfast speeds.

All their applications are now all hosted centrally in the cloud, this is a highly scalable solution for a growing business. Due to the merging of organisations, multiple cloud servers were implemented. razorblue also introduced a central communications platform with a telecoms system, connecting the entire organisation and enabling efficient collaborative working across all sites.

razorblue continue to support Community Links and onboard any new users and acquisitions seamlessly, with minimal business downtime.
