Port of Antwerp converts new Port House into modern mobile workplace
Port of Antwerp is responsible for the efficient day-to-day operation of the international port. To meet the demands of a rapidly evolving maritime market in a flexible way, they contracted SecureLink to convert the renewed Port House, the head office, into a mobile workplace.
At the start of this project, the company was faced with three challenges:
- They need to guarantee 24/7, 365 days a year continuity
- They need to meet the demand for mobile working
- They had to respect a crucial timing
After the implementation performed by SecureLink, the feedback is very positive. End-users are able to log on everywhere now with their laptop, both in the building and at home. They can work more efficiently and effectively. According to Robert De Maere, telecommunication manager of Port of Antwerp, the added value of SecureLink is the following:
“You can buy equipment from a box mover. But apart from the installation of the equipment, you also need support, you need to be able to follow training courses, you need to be able to talk to people at the supplier who know your problem and your infrastructure and are able to help you immediately. And that is, as well as respecting the strict deadline, of course, SecureLink’s added value”
