eir Business NI helps Balloo Hire reach new heights

One of Northern Ireland’s leading plant, tool & equipment hire providers, Balloo Hire, has turned to eir Business NI to deliver a more robust communications platform for its growing business.

Offering a province-wide delivery service across 5 depots in Belfast, Bangor, Lisburn, Glenavy and Ballyclare, communications is critical to Balloo Hire’s business success. Significant growth in the commercial operations, expansion of its business services and the addition of new hire centres, led it to look for a more advanced network that would keep the business running at its peak and provide a platform for the future.

Working with its IT partner, Zenith Networks, the company looked for a trusted provider that would ensure uninterrupted communications and optimised collaboration between its offices and clients. An integrated network knitting together each of the company locations was required to allow staff to securely access shared information and provide a first-class service to their customers. The company selected eir Business NI who offered a cost-effective and future-proof solution. The wide-area network provided by eir Business NI offers greater bandwidth and performance than before which in turn delivers better efficiency for their operations.

Mark Grundy, General Manager at Balloo Hire, said: “Having access to the information we need when we need it is vital to the running of our day-to-day business and communications between our hire centres is critical to the service we offer our customers. The network we now have in place with eir Business NI gives us this reassurance and it offers us the flexibility we need to grow for the future.”

eir Business NI Sales and Marketing director Matt McCloskey commented on the deal: “We are delighted to be working with another of Northern Ireland’s leading businesses. Balloo Hire’s success in its sector and its contribution to Northern Ireland’s economy is something that we are proud to support and we look forward to delivering a first class network that services the company’s growth in the future.”
