LeasePlan selects Verizon for 30-country comms deal

Fleet and vehicle management group, LeasePlan, has contracted Verizon to provide all of the company’s global communications services, including in its Australian business, in a deal which will link more than six thousand of its employees across 30 countries.

Under the agreement, LeasePlan, which is currently a Verizon Business managed private IP service customer, will use Verizon ethernet private line services to exchange data across key locations, as well as Verizon Internet dedicated services for high-bandwidth dedicated connections to Verizon’s global IP network.   LeasePlan has also co-located some of its core servers in multiple Verizon Business data centres around the world.

According to Stuart Curzon, group vice president for international sales for Verizon Business EMEA, consolidating these services with a single provider will help LeasePlan -- which manages a fleet of more than 1.4 million vehicles and is expanding globally – “drive growth while saving costs.”

“LeasePlan’s choice of Verizon Business to help support this next phase of its business development is a testament to the strength of the relationships that we build with our customers. We focus on delivering comprehensive, advanced communications and IT solutions tailored to help multinational corporations achieve their business goals and look forward to helping LeasePlan drive its global business success.”

LeasePlan manager sourcing, Bart van den Heuvel, said that “working with Verizon Business, we benefit from state-of-the-art solutions tailored to our specific business needs, backed up with extensive support and expertise. Most importantly, Verizon Business was able to offer a complete communications solution, from the network itself through security and added-value solutions, such as conferencing, in a single, seamless package.”

van den Heuvel said that to support collaboration across the company’s mobile workforce, LeasePlan is leveraging Verizon’s enterprise mobility solutions so employees can remotely access the company’s core information network, and rely on Verizon audio and net conferencing solutions to help boost cross-regional employee productivity.
