Grant Thornton and Vodafone sign deal worth £2m

Accountancy firm increases remote access to allow employees to spread their wings

Top ten firm Grant Thornton has signed a deal worth around £2m with mobile
giant Vodafone, to enhance its remote working capabilities to staff.

The deal aims to help Grant Thornton’s 3,500 mobile employees stay plugged in
when meeting clients from around the country and allow flexible working
patterns. The accountancy firm also hopes to enforce its IT policy through the
telecoms giants – Vodafone Secure Remote Access (VSRA), which will allow for
greater security when conducting data transmissions.

Greg Swift, information systems director for Grant Thornton said: ‘By
centralising the management of our mobile network, our staff have another
enhanced service delivery tool.’

The VSRA system will allow Grant Thornton employees to tailor reporting
capabilities, and include an IT security platform to protect corporate resources
and computers.

The accountancy firm followed detailed examinations of the offers available
before it chose Vodafone announcing the deal today.
