Six Degrees allows a stable foundation for OLIVER’s global clients

Part of the Inside Ideas Group, OLIVER is a leading marketing company that builds in-house agencies for some of the world’s most creative brands. Their unique model places 2000 staff inside the client’s world across 90 countries; operating at the speed of modern business to help clients deliver better work faster and more cost effectively.

Challenge

OLIVER needed an agile connectivity service to meet clients’ exact, and often nuanced, needs on a site-by-site basis. Jason Yun, IT Manager, OLIVER: “When a new client joins OLIVER, we look at the full scope. We then begin the connectivity process, putting-in internet lines, setting-up servers and providing hardware. Essentially, we build a fully-operating office within an office, which is a process that needs to be as painless as possible no matter where our client is in the world. It’s why reliable, fast and quality connectivity is essential to OLIVER’s offering.”

Solution

Six Degrees understood the importance of connectivity for OLIVER’s business, and worked closely with OLIVER to ensure we met their digital transformation goals. Because each one of OLIVER’s clients had a different set of requirements, we needed a wide breadth of solutions.

Outcome

Six Degrees’ Managed Wide Area Network (WAN) service has allowed OLIVER to deliver internet services and end-to-end productivity suites universally. Designed to integrate with client teams, it connects OLIVER’s sites and scales according to demand. A centralised managed firewall, layered into the WAN service, also provides OLIVER with secure access to their staff on the ground. Our Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) product also sits on the WAN, allowing OLIVER’s teams to communicate and collaborate, improving productivity as well as client experience.

Rapid Roll-Out of New Circuits

Six Degrees handles all aspects of connectivity circuit provisioning, ensuring there are no unnecessary delays and getting sites online as quickly as possible. This allows OLIVER to deploy teams to site as soon as possible after a pitch has been won.
