Navisite extends BDO deal

Navisite Europe has extended its web hosting services to BDO Stoy Hayward for a further three years. The deal was struck after BDO had considered taking the service in-house.

Graham Knight, head of technology at BDO Stoy Hayward, said that as the previous contract’s end approached, ‘scalability’ proved to be the ‘key factor’ in choosing to renew the deal, as ‘we had to make sure we had the ability to grow to accommodate future requirements and it had to be cost effective’.

In addition to managing multiple client-facing websites, NaviSite Europe will continue to provide hosting services for BDO Stoy Hayward and a development environment for an internal portal in the UK.

Stephen Scott, managing director, NaviSite Europe said: ‘Fighting the DIY option is a massive challenge in today’s market and now more than ever we are finding that in-house teams are our greatest competitors.

‘When you weigh this up against high levels of churn in the industry you realise how tough it is to hang on to your valued customers.’
