Government is moving towards Managed and Cloud based environments and AdEPT has an enviable record of delivery through a tried and tested formula. Moreover it is the transition from the old world to 21st century networks where AdEPT can offer most value.

IP Telephony or “VoIP” is now fully established as the default voice service within the UK. However most organisations are standing at a crossroads between legacy, existing and future technology. AdEPT’s IP telephony solutions, in partnership with the UK’s leading wholesale providers, are fully secure, fully resilient and offer the cost effective alternative to carrying inbound and outbound voice calls. Because AdEPT are leaders in the provision on traditional calls and lines, they are ideally placed to handle major migrations to next generation IP products. This process is managed on one platform with one bill and by a dedicated project team. Customers benefit from increased functionality compared to traditional telephone lines, there is no or little cost meaning an end to obsolete telephone systems (PBX). The AdEPT IP Solutions team is trained to handle everything from solutions architecture to physical installation and implementation.

Councils are making massive savings on traditional calls and lines
However, if you are simply concerned with achieving fast cost savings on your current phone bill, AdEPT offer a comprehensive range of traditional telecom products for all sizes of business. Leveraging key partnerships with all major UK networks, AdEPT can deliver a compelling saving against your current supplier. More than 30 major Local Government organisations have moved their telephony services to AdEPT in the last 2 years. The average cost saving has been in the region of 33%.

This process is again managed entirely by AdEPT’s migration team with minimal input from the customer. Once the initial migration has been completed, AdEPT then work with the end user to shut down any services that are no longer required (at no cost). This exercise increases the savings by a further 10% on average. The next step is to look at any opportunities to roll out IP; again this is designed to attract further savings. The final exercise is to look at savings and improvements around data connectivity. This four stage approach has helped the public sector save millions of pounds.

In summary, AdEPT have fast become the SME supplier of choice to the Public Sector. An innovative approach around technology and commercial delivery has helped organisations save money and improve efficiency.
