TrustFord has updated its network and IT systems with ANS Group.
The partnership will help the performance of its network and IT systems with a wide area network (WAN) solution.
The company hopes this will generate higher bandwidth, faster network speeds and direct public cloud connectivity, allowing it to run more applications with increased efficiency.
The project will enable TrustFord to accelerate the introduction of the FordStore concept into dealerships, which creates an immersive, digitally-led experience for customers through interactive displays, a dedicated app and video content.
The WAN deliver improved connectivity between sites by enabling next-generation video conferencing applications, and facilitating remote working.
The cloud-ready network will deliver TrustFord customers up-to-date ‘smart’ car software and updates as they are developed and released by Ford.
TrustFord’s IT director Andy Pocock said: “We chose ANS because its values and ambition complement our business perfectly, as well as the resiliency and scalability of its WAN offering.
“We’re confident that this project will futureproof our IT so we can be even more agile and adapt to changing business needs in years to come.”
ANS’ chief technology officer Andy Barrow (pictured) said: “TrustFord has been quick to adopt the latest technology in order to deliver a better experience for both customers and staff.”
