Moorfields Eye Hospital signs 3 year Managed Service deal with Advatek

Advatek is delighted to announce that they have signed a multi-year managed services contract with Moorfields Eye Hospital to support their entire network infrastructure.

Having previously worked with Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to manage their Fortinet firewall estate, this contract extends the service to a fully managed service, looking after their Cisco core and edge switching and wireless network devices.

The contract covers all the maintenance, patching, support and monitoring with a 24×7, 365 service.

“We are delighted to be the managed service partner to Moorfields Eye Hospital. We have a long history of working within the NHS and other blue light organisations and we understand their unique challenges.  Our support team are well placed to offer an excellent service to the Trust,’ says Simon Koscinski, from Advatek.

Why Choose Advatek?

“The market space for managed services can be densely populated. Moorfields received a number of responses but we were not scoring responses solely based on cost. Of course we needed to demonstrate excellent value for money however value itself is not always quantified by cost alone. Moorfields needed a service partner who are capable, competent, and helpful but above all else able to understand our concerns and work with us to provide a level of service required to meet the existing and growing demands of both Moorfields and the NHS. Using Advatek to augment the Network Support capability at Moorfields has provided the IT team with the assurance and comfort that we have a service partner who can work with us, day and night, to deliver the right levels of service expected and provide the Trust with a service they can rely on,” says Andy Smith, Head of IT at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
