Vodafone enhances Grant Thornton’s client service

Vodafone UK today announced that financial and business advisor Grant Thornton UK has awarded it a two year contract worth around £2 million to protect and manage its entire mobile working estate with Vodafone Secure Remote Access (VSRA).

VSRA is an easy to implement, highly customisable remote working solution that provides fully configurable policy-based access that aligns to business and employee needs. This service enables Grant Thornton to enforce IT policy for all of its mobile staff, providing high speed data transmission. In addition, Vodafone’s solution not only lowers the cost and complexity of supporting mobile staff, but also gives them a user friendly and secure 'one button' connection to a range of mobile and fixed networks such as 3G, WiFi and fixed broadband.

Grant Thornton has over 3,500 mobile employees who regularly meet with its more than 25,000 individual and 15,000 corporate and institutional clients. With staff working from so many varied locations, Grant Thornton needed an enhanced, cost effective and easily manageable way for them to work remotely.
