Trying to manage complexity? You need a managed services superhero

Choosing the right solution

On the market, you will find a variety of network solutions, platforms, and technologies, consequently, it’s easy to make a complex choice without considering the present and future needs in the same way. This becomes a challenge that can result in network complexity. Advice from a specialist independent partner is the best way to receive impartial advice and to work together to find and purchase the right product.

At Hughes, we have the experience and skills to design and build tailor made solutions. Working both vendor independently and with multiple communication providers across Europe, we can design and implement the right solution for your business.

All partners are trained by our in-house experts to support the whole range of Hughes’ connectivity solutions to the highest standards.

Flexible partnership

So, how does flexibility in a managed service provider (MSP) bring additional value to you as a retailer?

Whilst the scale and depth of the Telco service is impressive, we often hear how hard it is to find a voice to make change requests and support rapid new store openings or remodels. Vendor specific technology retailers will often require you to replace your legacy systems and adapt your business processes to fit with theirs.

At Hughes, we’ve taken our expertise and experience developed from serving over 55k sites across Europe to crate bundled solutions based on technology we know works together. Within these ready-to-go offers, we provide additional choices to suit your budget and service needs.
