Online PR News – 14-May-2011 – – Manchester, UK, May 13, 2011 -- Manchester-based ConvergeOne has successfully won a 3-year contract for network redesign and maintenance with prestigious Manchester Law firm Pannone LLP.

The deal is for a 3 year managed services contract for Pannone’s network, which also includes a technology refresh based on Cisco’s Smart Business Architecture methodology. The Pannone contract comes on the back of recent wins with Preston-based Football League, Engineering form Morson Group, Supply UK and Parity Group PLC.

ConvergeOne was successful in winning the network maintenance renewal contract based on their quick response times and their fresh and intuitive approach to understanding and making recommendations for improving the Pannone network. Although up against incumbent and larger companies for the network contract, ConvergeOne proved that a more agile and client focused approach is a successful combination.

IT Director David Griffiths said, “We were highly impressed with ConvergeOne’s technical expertise and their proven rapid response times. They were a natural choice for us when the contact for maintenance came up for renewal. In addition, they delivered a flexible network infrastructure that is ready for next generation services and that will support the business going forward.”

Communications technology specialist ConvergeOne has had a good start to 2011, with a move into prestigious new offices in Media City to support their growth. The business, which was started in 2007 by 4 directors, has gone from strength to strength providing innovative communications solutions to Manchester and UK wide businesses. Their network and communications solutions can be installed quickly and mean that companies can often make huge savings on their communications costs.

Mark Johnson, MD and one of the original founding directors of ConvergeOne, said about the company’s recent success “We were delighted to win the Pannone contract, which is one of a few recent new business wins that has enabled us to grow the business. Our move to Media City offices reflects our commitment to Manchester and we feel confident that the services we offer and the support we give to our clients mean that we will continue to expand in 2011.”

ConvergeOne’s new offices are part of the Digital Park development in Media City, an ideal location for businesses in the North West, and an area that continues to benefit from significant regeneration.
