Case Study: Kennett Insurance
Kennett Insurance were desperate to improve their broadband speed as the slow speeds affected the business.
Founded in 1972, Kennett Insurance Brokers is one of the area’s leading insurance brokers. Kennett Insurance provides independent, professional advice which highlights their excellent market experience and product knowledge.
Before choosing MS3 Kris Singleton, IT Manager at Kennett Insurance had used a number of other companies to try and improve the poor connectivity previously utilising an expensive leased line service and an AirFibre solution.
“We previously had a costly leased line to service a hosted back office system we use. To try and obtain a high speed internet connection, we used an Airfibre solution. Although this did provide the increased speed, the uptime was not consistent enough to allow us to disconnect our leased line.”
In late 2013 Kennett Insurance decide to take the plunge and upgraded their broadband to MS3’s fibre-to-the-premise service, they haven’t looked back since.
“Going over to a fibre service, with a pretty much 100% uptime we were able to finally disconnect this service which meant that we not only made a saving, but were able to utilise more web based systems.”
MS3 offers an ultrafast fibre broadband service combining 100Mb download speeds with an unlimited download usage at no extra cost. Having benefitted from the increased speeds, reliability and performance Kennett Insurance have since upgraded their internal systems into cloud-based solutions including Microsoft Office 365 provided by MS3.
“We took the service from MS3 mainly due to the speed of the connection which was more than adequate for our needs along with the fact that they are a local company.
“Since moving over to MS3’s fibre solution, we have just completed a total transfer of all our internal systems into the “cloud”. This includes Office 365, which MS3 helpfully arranged for us, alongside three other back office systems we have also moved onto hosted environments.”
MS3 asked Kennett Insurance if they would recommend MS3 to other companies in Hull looking to go superfast. The answer was simple…
“Without a doubt!”
