ESP’s success in Latin America continues with Orange Business Services

02-03-2018

ESP’s services are designed so that, wherever you are in the world, our offering feels the same. We have ESP teams available across the globe to ensure that you can always access engineers, account managers and service delivery staff when you need them, just like a local service.

ESP has seen Latin America (LATAM) as an important market for a number of years. We are delighted to be the IT support provider of choice for LATAM companies like Orange Business Services (OBS), for whom we deliver our managed workforce and field services.

In 2015, as the separation of OBS from SITA was drawing to a close, ESP was selected to provide support solutions for OBS data centres in Argentina. The workforce was made up of our local Argentina ESP engineers, account managers and service delivery staff.

Our managed workforce solutions involve implementing a single on-demand workforce that can fill any gaps in staffing and provide the skills our customer’s need at a particular time. By doing this, their resource planning is made simpler and their management capabilities are significantly boosted. As well as supplying them with a high-performance workforce, we support their management processes through remote monitoring, attendance tracking and other tools.

OBS has a number of data centres in LATAM. Depending on the size and scale of the services that a particular data centre requires, ESP supports the OBS locations through a mix of 24/7 on-site engineers and on-demand field services, coordinated by our Colombia service desk.

OBS has benefitted from our programme of localisation and has now added its sites in Bolivia and Colombia to the scope, including the Bogota data centre – one of the largest in LATAM!

Hugo A. Salas C., the Central America/Caribbean – North Andean Cluster Manager for OBS, commented, “ESP in Colombia was selected after an RFP process led by Orange Sourcing Dpt.; the transition process was designed, reviewed and agreed by both parties and finally executed with a very positive result. In general terms, ESP is a very good service provider in Colombia who learned pretty soon about Orange processes and businesses. After this initial phase, both companies are executing an operational stabilization process that is running very well. More success to come during this commercial relationship!”

“OBS is a real success story,” comments Mick Barry, ESP’s Sales Director for the Americas. “From RFP to going live and providing service, there has been a great collaborative effort between sales, service delivery and regional service management. These are all qualities that equip ESP to knowledgably and effectively tackle complex support contracts such as this anywhere in the world.”
