Founded in 1877, Jeyes are a leading manufacturer of cleaning and hygiene products, operating from six UK sites and five international sites.

Business & Technical Objectives
Jeyes were experiencing bandwidth availability problems at their Head Office with their existing Wide Area Network (WAN) service provider, and found that the network lacked reliability. Jeyes needed a resilient and scalable solution for extending bandwidth to their other UK sites, whilst also providing VPN access to international sites and suppliers.
GGR implemented a new managed MPLS WAN, which connected all of the sites into the Head Office using best-in-class Cisco hardware.
A new high bandwidth access circuit was installed at HQ, allowing Jeyes plenty of capacity for the foreseeable future and the flexibility to increase it significantly at short notice.
In addition, all other UK sites were connected to the MPLS cloud, and International sites were connected via Internet-VPN ensuring high speed connectivity at minimal cost.
Jeyes now have a fully managed MPLS WAN with a single point of control and, importantly, sufficient bandwidth for their future business requirements. The UK sites now access the Internet via Head Office, providing a single point for security policy enforcement and management. Jeyes also have a fully automated backup at all sites, ensuring business continuity should they lose connectivity via the primary link. GGR fully manage this network remotely, 24 hours a day, every day.
