Dimension Data transforms network infrastructure of iconic luxury brand
Singapore – 5 December 2018 – Dimension Data, a USD8 billion global technology integrator and managed services provider, announced today that it has been named network partner to one of the world’s most iconic luxury goods conglomerates. Dimension Data will take over the day-to-day management of the client’s network and connected devices.
Dimension Data’s Managed Network Services (MNS) facilitates the implementation of a central management system of all connected devices across the brand’s stores, offices, distribution centres and workshops globally, allowing a single view of the client’s network, security and voice gateway availability across all its stores.
Following the implementation, the brand’s global network operations will be migrated to Singapore to help curb the company’s rising costs and manpower requirements of maintaining a global operations infrastructure. “We are very pleased the client has chosen Dimension Data’s services in this global deployment. We have clearly demonstrated our understanding of their business, and expertise in providing end-to-end managed service solutions to support tangible business outcomes and growth objectives,” said Kent Lee, CEO, Dimension Data Singapore.
In addition to optimising the performance of the brand’s network, the deployment will also ensure a standardised platform for business to market. This will increase efficiency by freeing up manpower resources, lower IT costs, improve store productivity with better manageability and reduce device downtime (30% fewer devices with minimal downtime). More crucially, this will improve service levels and the in-store experience for customers through enhanced service capabilities, including reservation of products via online catalogues and faster payment transactions via mobile devices.
“We are excited about this development and to continue being a part of the brand’s journey as it continually evolves as a global leader in luxury fashion. The implementation will help them harness the potential of technology to reap greater tangible business outcomes, increase brand affinity and deliver a more positive customer experience,” adds Lee.
