How Vodafone Direct Routing helped Bauer Media Group

The business

Bauer Media Group is one of the world’s largest privately-owned media businesses with media assets all over the globe.

The challenge

In the UK, Bauer have over 30 sites all with disparate telephone systems and multiple ISDN circuits. Not only does this ramp up high costs, it’s also extremely time-consuming and complex to manage from an IT and operations point of view.

The solution and benefits

Vodafone's Direct Routing experts helped navigate the complexities Bauer was facing and ensured the best fit approach for their business and its users.

The solution reduced all the complexity for IT and operations by consolidating and unifying Bauer's UK comms environment through the Microsoft Teams platform and providing a single solution for all their employees' calling and collaboration needs.

Vodafone also offers Bauer Media Group cost savings by reducing the need for a dedicated phone system and providing an end-to-end voice service – removing costs of administering complex infrastructure components.
