Arthur D. Little chooses Colt for voice services and end-to-end connectivity between Asia and Europe

SIP Trunking services free enterprises from regulatory complications in different countries

Tokyo, Japan, 22 October 2020
Colt Technology Services today announced that global management consulting firm, Arthur D. Little has selected Colt’s SIP Trunking and IP Access services in Asia. By engaging Colt as its single trusted service provider, Arthur D. Little obtained a one-stop-shop and hassle-free service and a single network for delivery, operations, and payments, as well as seamless connectivity between its offices in Europe and Asia. It also overcame the inefficiencies and complexity of managing multiple suppliers, free from complications around regulatory requirements in each country.

The development of IT infrastructure removed the boundaries between countries, enabling enterprises to thrive globally. However, each country have different regulations for the telecommunication industry, with enterprises sometimes having to use local currencies and languages with each local network provider. With Colt, enterprises can manage their whole network and voice services for all regions using one provider – one of the reasons why enterprises with multiple offices around the world choose Colt.

Arthur D. Little also engaged Colt to optimise its voice infrastructure in its Singapore office, with plans to introduce Colt’s SIP Trunking in other offices across the region.

Mr Haruya Kono, IT Manager of Arthur D. Little Japan, said: “As an organisation, we use Colt’s SIP Trunking in Singapore and business internet service in both Singapore and Japan. We have found the stability and quality of the Colt IQ Network, as well as its voice services, to be of high quality. We are delighted with the services we get from Colt, and we are now considering implementing Colt Voice services in other offices. We would recommend Colt to other enterprises.”

Colt has been providing business telephony services to global enterprises for 27 years, underpinned by a strong global footprint. Singapore and Hong Kong were added to the global footprint in 2019, expanding Colt’s global SIP trunking footprint to 26 countries and four continents which include Europe, North America and Asia.

Masato Hoshino, Head of Asia and Representative Director & President at Colt, said: “We are delighted to be serving Arthur D. Little through our recently expanded SIP Trunking and IP Access service in Asia. We look forward to helping more companies optimise and simplify their voice infrastructure and better manage their costs while meeting their global compliance, disaster recovery, and security needs – all through one point of contact.”
