Partnering with Vodafone has enabled Planixs to move onwards and upwards to the next stage of maturity.
By 2015, Planixs were enjoying the level of success that had several big banks interested in adopting their real-time intelligence and insight capabilities. Yet even though Planixs products and services were second-to none, it became clear that they needed to address the growing security needs of their customers. While price point and rapid provision had initially been the key factors for customers, the landscape was changing. “Global security was suddenly top of the agenda,” says Planixs founder and CEO Neville Roberts. “We realised that serious businesses, particularly banks, needed secure cloud solutions to support sensitive international customer transactions or employee data.”
Discussions began on how Vodafone would provide Planixs with secure private cloud, hosting and network capabilities to underpin their business analytics SaaS offerings worldwide. Vodafone’s global presence and pedigree in telecoms, mobility, security and data services provided a depth of expertise no other cloud provider could demonstrate. Frequently called upon to prove hosting compliance and transparency to blue-chip prospects, Planixs knew Vodafone’s ability to offer clear and detailed evidence could meet even the most stringent standards.
Partnering with Vodafone has enabled Planixs to move onwards and upwards to the next stage of maturity. They have been able to clinch bigger contracts with bigger clients in more markets than ever before. The support and collaboration from Vodafone is now giving Planixs the confidence to drive innovation in key verticals.
