About

FOX Moving & Storage jointly celebrated its 40th anniversary and the opening of a new branch at Newport in May 2011. This was very appropriate as the founder Roy Fox grew up in Newport and his family have been in the removal and storage business in this city since the 1920s. FOX has grown from a small business in South Wales to a nationwide network of locations over the last four decades.

Now providing moving and storage solutions throughout the UK, Europe and the World, FOX is a leading business in the domestic, business and international sectors.

EFM Case Study - Fox Group (Moving & Storage) Ltd

The Business Challenge:

To provide reliable Data Connectivity for two of Fox Group’s branches in Wales – Cwmbran NP44 1QX and Cardiff CF14 5DJ. There was a requirement for stable bandwidth at both sites in order to guarantee uptime for internal IT services across the organisation.

The Solution:

Alan Bellringer contacted SoConnect in the summer of 2013 in order to begin the search into suitable Data Connection options available at Fox Group’s office location at NP44 1QX and CF14 5DJ. As the other sites within the group access servers based at these sites, a robust and reliable service was essential at these locations for the group as a whole.

The Product:

SoConnect provisioned and maintain 2 x EFM Quad Circuits for 2 of Fox Group Ltd sites. SoConnect were able to provide this service which shares a lot of the same benefits as a conventional fibre based Leased Line Solution, however at a more cost effective cost.

The Benefits:

Fox Group Ltd benefited from a fast lead-time on placing the order with SoConnect. This allowed for quick access to this high bandwidth, business grade service which continues to demonstrate greater efficiency throughout the staff team as a whole. This type of Data Connection works well for Fox Group who need consistent, uninterrupted uptime at these sites due to basing their group servers there which are accessible by other branches within the organisation. SoConnect also back this solution with a comprehensive Service Level Agreement with 6 hour fix, therefore EFM offers the resilience and peace of mind Fox Group needed.
