Honan replaces problematic network provider with blueAPACHE

Honan Insurance has replaced its old telecommunications service provider with blueAPACHE after experiencing numerous outages in its networks over the years.

Honan chief operating officer Laurence Basell told ARN that the company's old telecommunications service provider could not establish data links into the new premises in time for its office move. As such, Honan decided to find a new partner that could fix its networking and latency issues and a complete WAN transformation.

The company chose blueAPACHE after the telecommunications provider fixed networking issues in its Palo Alto technology stack as part of a separate project.

Stuart Madden, the head of technology and projects at Honan, said transitioning to blueAPACHE allowed the company to remain operational during the office move.

“We’re now based fully in the cloud. This gives us the flexibility to increase resources as our demands grow and also ensures our systems are secure and accessible from any location,” Madden told ARN.

Basell added that the migration helped the company to save significant operating costs, with the telecommunications bill reduced by around 65%. As a result, the company also upgraded its voice and data links and improved its IT infrastructure to support growing staff in its other offices in Malaysia, New Zealand, and Singapore.

“This international expansion is being supported by blueAPACHE. It's important that we have a partner who can cover our activities across the region,” Basell concluded.
