Sungard AS launches Serviced Workplace Offering Across the UK

    September 2, 2020

    Opens seven strategic locations to allow organisations to have flexible access to secure infrastructure and resilient facilities

    London, UK – September 2, 2020: In response to growing demand from customers to have a production office purpose-built and tailored to individual customer requirements, Sungard Availability Services® (Sungard AS), a leading provider of information availability through managed IT, cloud and recovery services, has today announced the opening of its Serviced Workplaces in seven sites across the UK.

    With recent research conducted by IDC highlighting that more than three quarters of employees (77%) in the UK expect to see a mixture of on-site and remote working to become the new norm, each Serviced Workplace facility has been strategically located outside of major city hubs including Docklands, Borehamwood, Elland & Livingston (Scotland). It means for many employees, the idea for having to commute into a central city location via public transport can be a thing of the past.

    Each facility can provide all the IT equipment, PC, telephones alongside dealing room turrets to help customers be productive as possible, and each suite is self-contained and can include dedicated meeting rooms and canteen areas. All buildings have hardened infrastructure with UPS and generators, as well as recovery to an alternative location is built into the service.

    Unlike other managed workplace offerings, businesses using the Serviced Workplace facilities have full-time access to the space they need, with a robust and secure infrastructure in resilient facilities that gives them the flexibility they need to navigate the business challenges of the post-pandemic world.

    “As we emerge from the depths of this pandemic, organisations across the globe are re-evaluating the way they work. For many businesses in the UK and beyond, there’s a real challenge on their hands about how and when you bring employees back into the office”, comments Pat Morley, GM Continental Europe at Sungard Availability Services. “To help meet this challenge, we launched Serviced Workplace, to help customers, and ultimately businesses up and down the UK to get on, and get ahead.”
