Network business set to connect with new markets
A CLOUD based technology business is dialling into new markets, with the launch of a product designed specifically for SMEs.
Rymote, a Sunderland based technology company that offers Cisco network and telephone systems, has launched its new Trinity product, an innovative new system designed to offer customers a secure, flexible phone and network service.
Trinity is aimed at companies with between five and 50 telephone users, providing a cloud-based private network, allowing companies to store, share and access information from the office as well as their own mobile devices. As well as providing a network, Trinity also includes a fully integrated telephone system, with calls running through the internet rather than traditional telephone lines to deliver a better quality call, as well as increased security thanks to built-in encryption. Other features include an instant messaging system, allowing employees to contact each other quickly and easily and a tracking system that highlights periods in which the network is coming under pressure, allowing companies to plan more effectively.
Al Yong, managing director of Rymote, which is based in the Sunderland Software Centre, said that the Trinity product is something he believes many small businesses could benefit from.
He said: “Trinity is designed to significantly improve the flow of communication in small to medium sized businesses, making it easy for employees to access company files, share information with their colleagues and communicate outside of the business using a safe, secure collaboration suite.
“Previously, the price of a system like this would have been prohibitive to small businesses, so we developed this product to create an affordable, fully integrated solution that just works for small businesses. The interest we have had already in the product has been phenomenal, so we’re sure that it will be a big success.”
Rymote is one of only six North East businesses with Cisco Premier Partner status, meaning the company has met strict standards for networking competency, service, support and customer satisfaction set by Cisco. The company was set up in 2011 by Mr Young, who is also founder and CEO of Affinity Systems, a Sunderland based IT installation specialist supplying the North East.
Councillor Paul Watson, leader of Sunderland City Council, said that the business was a shining example of an innovative technology company, using its expertise in IT to make technology accessible to businesses in the city and beyond.
He said: “Rymote is one of a number of really innovative technology businesses that we have in the city, using their technical expertise to deliver cutting edge products and services to clients across the North East and beyond.
“Sunderland has built a national and international reputation as a hotbed of software and technology talent, and businesses like Rymote -based in our cutting edge new city centre hub, Sunderland Software Centre – are flying the flag for the area.”
