- Innovative new healthcare provider chooses Bamboo for all telecoms services including mobile, fixed line telephony and data connectivity
- Bamboo to manage a phased transition from incumbent providers to minimise disruption and avoid early termination fees
Cheltenham, 17th July 2017: Tracscare, a specialist provider of support for people with Mental Health needs, Learning Disabilities, Autism and Acquired Brain Injuries, has chosen to consolidate its telecommunications services withBamboo Technology Group (Bamboo). Following an extensive tender process, Bamboo was selected to provide Tracscare with mobile and fixed line telephony, and data connectivity.
Tracscare takes an innovative approach to care, offering support to vulnerable adults with challenging or complex needs who may have experienced difficulties in finding suitable services elsewhere. Tracscare has acquired a number of companies during its growth over the last few years, resulting in over seven different providers of its fixed line and mobile services. It therefore issued a public tender to consolidate these services under one provider.
Bamboo won the contract based on four criteria:
- Its proposal being the most closely aligned to the needs of the business
- Its proven ability and experience in the healthcare industry
- The quality of its customer service and support
- Competitive pricing
Bamboo will be providing all of Tracscare’s mobile telephony services, as well as fixed line IP telephony and data connectivity at a number of their sites across the UK.
Given the complexity of Tracscare’s existing telecoms services from seven different providers – all with varying contract end dates – Bamboo has produced a strategic migration plan to transition its various services over the course of a 6-7 month period. By implementing and managing a staged transfer of services, Bamboo reduces any potential interruptions for Tracscare’s users, which can occur with a “Big Bang” migration, where everything is moved at once, while also providing Tracscare with the option to avoid any early termination fees from its incumbent providers.
“Bamboo’s personal service is second-to-none. By consolidating our services with Bamboo, we have not only achieved a more cost-effective solution, but we have partnered with experts that understand the specific needs of our business as well as the healthcare industry in general,” comments Shane Gidman, IT director at Tracscare. “It is refreshing to have a single point of contact at Bamboo, as well as access to highly experienced service and technical teams, for all of our communications needs. Our account manager knows our business inside-out, regularly reviews our bills to ensure we’re on the right plan and making the best use of our services, and is personally available whenever I need him.”
“Bamboo has built a solid reputation in the healthcare industry through our ability to deliver on our promises and provide solutions that perfectly fit our customers’ needs. We are delighted to be working with Tracscare,” comments Lorrin White, MD, Bamboo.
