Simplicity and savings through network transitioning

23rd February 2018 | In Networking

British bakery saved over £150,000 and achieved improved connectivity, security and simplified network management through a network transition smoothly handled, from beginning to end, by Hardware.com.


As part of their continued growth and drive for quality across all areas of the business, a leading bakery needed to upgrade their network, primarily seeking a more cost-effective solution for improved connectivity and network manageability. The company were keen to ensure that maintenance and management of the new network should be as simple as possible and all members of the IT department felt confident with the transition and use of the new systems.

At Hardware.com, we felt confident we could deliver on all of these objectives.


Understanding the client’s need for a more cost-effective network solution, Hardware. com recommended reliable and high-quality equipment and a comprehensive network switching service to efficiently replace the incumbent system. This led to a significant cost saving of over £150,000 for the company.

Within an agreed timeframe, Hardware.com achieved a successful network transition, installing new routers and switches to eliminate outages, providing a reliable, high-quality connection, alongside high-performance firewalls, giving the client added peace-of-mind with regards to security. The network has also been designed to accommodate the continuing growth of the business into the future.

Working closely with the customer, Hardware.com’s expert system architects carefully planned the positioning of wireless access points throughout head office to ensure consistent and reliable connectivity for all employees throughout the building. Furthermore, we provided vendor-certified training to ensure the existing technical skills of the IT department could be easily transferred to the new equipment. Our own engineers shared their practical experience and offered guidance where necessary so that all staff felt confident in using the new system.
