Connecting business colleagues
Continental Underfloor, underfloor heating supplier
"It is important to us that we have a strong company culture. Superfast broadband is helping us create that in exciting and innovative ways," says Chris Ingram, Managing Director.
Continental Underfloor, based in King's Hill in Bude, is the UK market leader in the supply of warm water underfloor heating systems to homes and businesses.
Chris Ingram says: "We have recently opened a new office at Pool Innovation Centre. By installing two superfast broadband lines at Bude, we have created a virtual private network (vpn) link between the two locations.
"It is important to us that we have a strong company culture. Superfast broadband is helping us create that in exciting and innovative ways. We stream webcams between our offices and project the images on a live video wall, this is hooked up to microphones, so that everyone can work together and communicate easily."
"These innovative ways of connecting our offices even led to the company winning the inaugural ‘Best Use of Superfast Broadband' award at the 2012 Cornwall Business Awards!"
