Premier Foods consolidates its communications estate across mobile, fixed and WAN services to Vodafone, making the business more agile and ready to face future business challenges.

Business Need

Premier Foods is one of the UK’s largest food producers, but the business had started to become a victim of its own success. A decade of acquisition and expansion had left the group in need of consolidation. Previously, the group had separate suppliers for its fixed, mobile and WAN. With seven in total across the entire communications estate, this impacted on cost and management time. The plan was to consolidate this to one, cutting costs and creating a strategic partnership.


Solution

Premier Foods selected Vodafone as its exclusive provider of integrated communications. It will deliver fixed, mobile and WAN across the UK. The five-year deal ensures flexible SLAs and guarantees mobile coverage at 2 to 3 previously patchy locations. “The Vodafone solution made a lot of sense. Realistically, it was the only option that could provide leadership on fixed, mobile and WAN,” says Mark Vickery, Group Information Systems & Change Director, Premier Foods.
