HKT – One-stop network solutions for professional services firm, Dezan Shira & Associates
Dezan Shira & Associates (DSA) is a pan-Asia, multi-disciplinary services firm that provides professional consultation in accounting, auditing, taxation, IT and human resource management to multinational corporations and foreign investors.
DSA aims to assist and guide companies through the establishment, maintenance and expansion of their business operations in Asia. Their clientele is spread across many Belt and Road countries and regions including Hong Kong, mainland China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia and Singapore.
DSA used to run their internal data applications through a common network and IPSec VPN. However, after they installed a new large-scale Microsoft ERP system, the shared internet access was not sufficient to support a sound operation, and they found themselves in urgent need of more data security.
HKT devised a comprehensive virtual private enterprise network and internet service for DSA, that provided a high-quality, stable and speedy network connecting other regions.
HKT set up private networks for DSA at several core offices in the Greater China region, allowing interconnection and interoperability at various sites. Each branch enjoyed completely exclusive bandwidth, while DSA’s key ERP system was protected with high levels of privacy and stability of data transmission via HKT’s Quality of Service (QoS) and Flow Control Technology (CoS).
Enabled by HKT’s one-stop solution, DSA has managed to improve the user experience of their internal data applications. DSA now uses HKT’s Premium Internet services for all their mainland-based offices to resolve the issue of connection failure when staff access information from other regions from their offices in the Greater China region. HKT’s services have been well received by DSA staff, as speed has more than doubled when loading websites of other regions and transmitting documents online.
For example, the average data transmission delay between its Beijing office and other branches has been reduced from 120 to 40 milliseconds, with the packet loss ratio dropping from the previous 10% to close to zero*.
With HKT’s support, DSA’s is expanding rapidly, and offering comprehensive foreign investment services for multinational companies looking to enter Belt and Road markets.
