Pure Telecom has revealed it has won a competitive round of bidding to provide communications services for Blackrock Clinic.

The deal worth €217,000 across a three year period will provide Ireland’s largest private healthcare centre with key services while reducing costs by more than €75,000 annually via lower rates and the removal of unused lines.

Pure Telecom is on target to boost revenues by €6.5 million during the next year and the broadband and phone provider has also helped Blackrock Clinic to enhance its internet speeds.

Support to 12 consultant suites within the clinic gives access to improved broadband speeds as part of the deal.

Rapidly changing telecoms

“Telecoms in Ireland is changing rapidly,” explained Paul Connell, director, Pure Telecom. “Business customers have a need for, and expectation of high speed broadband, a reliable call system and 24/7 assistance – particularly when they are a 24/7 business themselves.”

He added that the focus is on providing a value-added service for customers and that Blackrock Clinic should be confident that they needs are being looked after.

“We’re delighted Blackrock Clinic’s experience has been so positive and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future,” Mr Connell explained.

Making a difference

Emmet Nealon, deputy head of IT, Blackrock Clinic, said that Pure Telecom provides “value, support and ease of management” which “had made a huge difference”.

She spoke of the need for reliable telecommunications in a healthcare environment and added: “It provides a great deal of comfort to know we’re being looked after.”

Pure Telecom agreed a €20 million partnership with eir earlier in 2015 which means its residential and business customers can access eir’s 100Mb/s internet network.

The provider also has access to other networks including those of e-Net, BT and Colt, meaning the best broadband speeds can be provided based on location.
