Persimmon finds the right home in Zen

Our commitment to providing a personal, responsive service will help Persimmon towards even greater success

Zen Internet will provide Persimmon Homes, one of the UK’s leading home builders, with a Wide Area Network solution to connect their 28 regional operating businesses.

With an annual turnover of more than £3bn, Persimmon delivered over 15,000 new homes in 2016 alone. In addition to the new Wide Area Network, Zen will also be providing Persimmon with a cloud solution, to bring greater connectivity and functionality for the business’s project managers and clients alike, and to support their overall improvement programme.

Discussing his business’s relationship with Zen, Persimmon group IT director Liam Ronan says, “Zen is one of the most responsive, focused, passionate and accommodating services providers I have ever worked with. Their service is second-to-none, and I know that we made the right decision for Persimmon by appointing them a strategic supplier. Their dedicated, professional and highly capable team brings our business the confidence we need to make swift, responsive business technology change with certainty that Zen will always make it happen – quickly, without the fuss and lengthy frustrating processes common to major suppliers.”

And that commitment to service is echoed by Zen managing director, Corporate & Mid-Market, Martin O’Donnell: “Persimmon chose to partner with Zen because of our track record of customer service, technical expertise, and product delivery. Our commitment to providing a personal, responsive service will help Persimmon towards even greater success.”

Mark Baker, senior business development manager at Zen, adds that, “The Wide Area Network we are providing will result in cost savings, while offering them more functionality, diversity and resilience.”
