Global talent management solutions provider Korn/Ferry International has streamlined its Asia-Pacific communications capabilities to upgrade secure connectivity between its 17 offices across the region and its Singapore administrative headquarters.
As business expanded regionwide, Korn/Ferry said it became clear they could achieve cost efficiencies and optimise overall network performance by consolidating their resources with a single service provider. The firm has implemented a Verizon Private IP solution. Verizon Business completed the first phase of the Private IP network rollout in March. Additional sites will be brought online in the coming year.
Korn/Ferry also plans to further consolidate its regional IT resources by co-locating its key IP telephony, e-mail and database systems within the Verizon Business secure data centre in Singapore.
Korn/Ferry with operations across 39 countries - helps companies identify, deploy, develop, retain and reward their staff around the world. With more than 10,000 senior-level searches conducted for clients worldwide each year, security is critical. The companys success relies on its consultants ability to securely locate and share highly confidential information. In addition, the firm delivers custom leadership-development solutions directly to its customers via a secure online executive centre.
Our clients trust us with significant and confidential information, said Stein Bang, senior director, IT Asia Pacific, Korn/Ferry International. Network security and reliability are absolutely essential to our business. Verizon Business Private IP solution and advanced data centre and co-location capabilities help us support our clients.
Andrew Dobbins, regional vice president, Verizon Business Asia Pacific, said: We pride ourselves in the quality of both our solutions and customer service. For customers like Korn/Ferry International, their network and communication requirements are absolutely fundamental to their industry leadership position. This is a good example of how Verizon Business solutions and service capabilities combine to support a customer in achieving its own business goals.
