At last years Awards, we introduced a new category 'Peoples Choice'. Chris was nominated for loads of reasons, being a great manager, his awesome work ethic, nurturing his team, good hair, basically it's the ultimate 'Good Egg' award.

The team did a live vote at the awards after party and Chris, our Telco Operations Provisioning Manager was crowned the winner πŸ† His prize, a trip for two to South Africa!

He sent us some photos from his trip, and he 'promised' he took his lovely wife Beth along on the adventure, however, looking at these snaps we're not convinced... πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦


We've won an award and we're super proud of this one- it's the Cisco Meraki Effects Global Award.

We asked our Head of Enterprise Network Operations Chris Morris to tell us a bit more about this award winning project:

CM: 'Using webhooks and APIs, our team built scripts to integrate into Cisco Meraki technology, that meant we could deploy thousands of devices across hundreds of sites, reducing configuration time by 96%, from months to days. Not only was the code used for the initial installation, it is also embedded into the on-going management of the customer infrastructure helping them realise significant cost savings.'

Non-Techie Translation:
Our team wrote some pretty cool code, which talked to some awesome Cisco technology, which chatted to some other devices, that got the job done in record time and saved our customer a load of money. Boom! πŸ’₯


Over the past few weeks we have all been deeply saddened by the terrible events in Ukraine, and as we watch and hear the news each day wonder how we can help. Rather than donating funds, we decided to work with local Brighton charity, Sussex Homeless Support CIO collecting essential items for their Ukraine Aid Appeal.

On Monday, some of their amazing volunteers began their journey to the Hungarian boarder and into the city of Mukacheve in Western Ukraine, where they have partnered with a hospital to set up a shelter and hostel for women and children, allowing them to rest before their continued travel to safety πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦

We were completely overwhelmed by the generosity of our people and our community. Special mention to Chloe who coordinated the project and Will, Alex, Jordan, Cheryl, Melissa and Mat for all their help packing and loading over the weekend.
