Ozon Solicitors is one of Manchester's most progressive law firms.
Expanding their business, Ozon faced a challenge. With their new premises ready to move into at short notice, would they be able to find a telecoms provider who could match their speed?
We think you know the answer to that.
What was your initial telecoms issue, the ‘problem’?
"We were due to relocate to new office premises and knew that we wanted a new leased line to ensure continuity for the business.
"What we didn't account for was the unforeseen change in timescales! The office suddenly became available much more quickly than we'd anticipated and while it was too good an opportunity not to go for, we were concerned about finding a telecoms provider at such short notice who could work as quickly as we needed them to.
"I wasn't sure if it would be possible, frankly."
How did you become aware of IPEX?
"We'd had previous contact with their sales team, and we also shared a mutual contact who was already working with them."
What was the solution that IPEX implemented for you?
"The solution comprised the installation of a dedicated leased line to our new office, for uncontended connectivity."
What have been the results of the solution we implemented for you?
"The speed of the installation was really impressive. A move of this sort could have taken up to 90 days - IPEX managed it in just two and a half weeks.
"Not only that, but the speed came with no compromise to the service, as we continued to operate seamlessly with no downtime or loss of trading.
"Ongoing, we're enjoying the ownership of our solution. With access to a portal, we are able to scale the solution up and down and pay only for what we're using. We have a busy, dynamic team of solicitors who spend a lot of time working remotely with clients so we can scale bandwidth down when we need, and if everyone is in the office for a team meeting, we have the capacity to scale it back up again.
"We're getting great connectivity with more control. That's been powerful for us."

How would you describe the process of working with IPEX?
"IPEX were always on hand to provide an update as to the status of our application and the proposed installation date. This was a huge relief and alleviated one of the concerns of a very stressful relocation process."
Would you be happy to recommend IPEX, and if so, why?
"Definitely. With IPEX you get the feeling that the customer comes first. It is comforting to feel that you are in a safe pair of hands."
