Campofrio Food Group Invests in IT Infrastructure Transformation with Easynet Global Services

LONDON, January 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Campofrio Food Group, Europe's leading company in the meat products sector, has signed a three-year contract with Easynet Global Services as part of its IT transformation programme. Campofrio Food Group has renewed the existing global contract with Easynet which includes an MPLS network in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Holland, Portugal and the USA, as well as managed security and video conference solutions.

Campofrio Food Group, with a presence in eight European countries and the United States and sales of two billion euros, has made ​​a strategic investment in its IT infrastructure by implementing a 'smart' corporate network solution and the application performance management solution (APM) to improve collaboration and cost efficiency across their business.

With a thriving international business, different production sites and corporate offices across Europe and the U.S., Campofrio Food Group has a wide group of employees, customers, suppliers, partners and distribution companies for whom fast and effective communication is critical. Powerful, strategic integrated IT was needed to drive change across the organization in order to improve collaboration and communication ensuring the business is in the best position for further growth.

The first step for Campofrio Food Group was to ensure it had a robust, intelligent network underlying its business. Easynet designed and delivered a 'smart' corporate network, protected by a suite of managed security solutions. To ensure the network performs at its best, Campofrio Food Group selected Application Performance Management, WAN optimisation and acceleration services from Easynet and Ipanema Technologies. This real-time, in-depth application monitoring ascertains how the company's business-critical applications are performing, providing control and visibility of the network, whilst Service Level Guarantees ensure optimum performance of those individual business-critical applications.

With a focus on improving cross-border collaboration, teamwork and productivity as well as reducing costs, introducing an efficient videoconferencing platform was a crucial part of Campofrio Food Group's new IT strategy. Using Easynet's fully-managed videoconferencing solution across twelve of its sites -Spain, France, Holland and Belgium- helped Campofrio Food Group achieve these objectives, removing unnecessary travel costs and creating a true-to-life, reliable meeting experience supported by a video network operations centre (VNOC), on hand 24 hours a day.  A major advantage is that Easynet's videoconferencing service can swiftly and easily integrate with other unified communications platforms such as Microsoft Lync and VoIP services, as and when Campofrio Food Group requires.

Nuria Simo, CIO from Campofrio Food Group said: "As CIO of Campofrio Food Group I have a commitment to put IT infrastructure in a key position and provide value. Easynet has understood the requirements that Campofrio Food Group has for its IT Infrastructure and specifically in communications. From the outset Easynet has helped us with the IT to transform our business, and both solutions and technology they provided have exceeded initial expectations." Simó continues saying: "The confidence we have in Easynet is has helped us to establish an IT strategy aligned with the present and future needs, and the increasingly international dimension of Campofrio Food Group."

Christophe Verdenne, Easynet's Managing Director for the Southern European region said: "Campofrio Food Group is a huge player in the European and global market. To maintain its strong foothold, its IT infrastructure must be safe and reliable across all their brands and sites. The design and delivery of this major business transformation project is no easy task, but Campofrio Food Group's vision and desire for change, coupled with Easynet's track record in rolling out global projects has resulted in powerful and potent IT infrastructure ready for the future."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.
