It goes without saying that being online is a business imperative. So, why is it that 67% of IT professionals and business owners admit they struggle to get the budget for IT investment? With guaranteed speeds, 100% availability SLAs and optimum fix times, our Leased Lines are a feature-rich option for all customers’ connectivity needs.

Far from being an expensive connectivity option, they could be the passport to some significant efficiency savings within your business.

1. No more downtime and lost revenue hours

How many hours have you lost in the last year through downtime or sluggish broadband speeds? Chances are, even a few half hours here and there had a real impact on productivity. Sources differ as to the real annual cost of downtime to UK businesses but most agree that it’s in the billions of pounds. On the other hand, dedicated, un-contended connectivity makes secure data transfer the work of moments, boosting collaboration, productivity and, crucially, profitability.

2. Replace legacy hardware with scalable, hosted alternatives

Imagine being able to discard legacy phone systems, and the associated maintenance and upgrade fees, in favour of a scalable Business Grade Voice over IP service that keeps you always on and always in touch. Leased line costs suddenly look a lot more palatable when measured against the savings you could make through IP-based telephony. Result: lower overheads, lower maintenance fees and teams that are empowered to work closer together.

3. Pay only for what you use, when you use it

Dedicated internet access also provides the perfect foundation for hosted collaboration services. Flexible tools like Hosted Exchange run on a simple per-user-per-month model and enable your teams to stay in touch whenever and wherever they are, reducing travel fees and overheads and promoting productivity. Easy scalability means you can add or remove users as required, meaning you’ll only pay for what you use.

Your business can get a connection voucher of up to £3,000 for faster, better broadband through the Government’s Broadband Connection Voucher Scheme. The scheme is active in 50 cities across the UK and is administered by each city through Pink Connect.
