Not only will our clients get access to expertise and services that we can’t offer in house today, but we can also leverage Nexon’s reach to deliver our innovative solutions across a broader marketplace” said Gavin Leathem Managing Director at Remagine Solutions.   With customer demands soaring for cloud and managed services, Nexon’s investment in XCentral couldn’t come at a better time.

Lowes, a family-owned business since 1898 has grown from humble beginning to over 200 stores nationwide. Nexon has standardised on Cisco and Meraki for all routers, switches and access points in head office and across all stores nationally. The project is one component of a $4.5m, multi-year managed services contract that Lowes signed with Nexon in July 2018, which will extend the partnership between Lowes and Nexon to 20 years. Four years ago, Nexon had migrated the majority of Lowes’ on-premises server infrastructure and services to Nexon’s Private Cloud. The latest managed services agreement also encompasses the migration of more than 200 Lowes stores from ADSL to the nbn™ broadband access network as the service becomes available in each location, and 24/7 managed support for Lowes’ IT environment, including head office and store network, cloud telephony, centralised security and cloud infrastructure. The majority of Lowes’ stores have been migrated to nbn services already, with minimal or no disruption to operations. “Like many of our peers in the retail sector, Lowes is facing the challenges of dealing with digital disruption. With Nexon’s help, we are now planning to introduce new technologies to improve the customer omni-channel experience and create analytics on consumer behaviour instore, as well as upgrading and developing better integrations between our backend systems,” said Geoff Paine, Lowes’ IT Manager. After an audit of its IT environment, Lowes had identified significant security and business risks posed by its ageing hardware and heterogeneous network infrastructure. The network refresh started with a number of pilot sites in late 2018, with the full deployment recommencing in February 2019, after the Christmas and January sales trading period. The entire project was financed as part of Nexon’s managed services contract. “By incorporating the network and hardware upgrade as an operational expense under the managed services agreement, Lowes was able to undertake a massive refresh project like this without any up-front capital outlay, which would have been close to $1M in hardware costs alone,” said Nexon’s client engagement lead, Nevien Badawi. Leveraging Cisco technologies and nbn™ broadband access network services, Lowes now has a secure, scalable wired and wireless network ensuring operational stability, security instore for switches and APs, and performance across all offices, warehouses and stores. Unlike many managed service providers (MSPs) operating in Australia, Nexon has maintained 100% local support services. “Having a responsive, agile local support team with Nexon as our single managed service provider has freed up our team and given us the peace of mind so that we can focus on digital transformation. In addition, Nexon’s Helpdesk Happiness model is providing real value with instant feedback and a closed loop process that gives my team insight and analytics on call resolutions and business outcomes,” said Geoff. The extension to the partnership with Lowes further deepens Nexon’s expertise in the Australian retail sector. Nexon also recently announced a $5.6 million multi-year contract with Craveable Brands and a three year agreement with Toymate to transition its head office and stores to nbn, and manage its network and telephony services.   “Retailers are often challenged by multiple vendor partnerships and technologies as a result of organic growth and the lack of local availability of services and support for their stores. Nexon’s solutions provide retailers with consolidation of services and standardisation of technologies to improve security, reduce operational overheads and costs, and ultimately deliver a more stable, reliable I.T. platform for future transformation,” said Nevien. Nexon is continuing to simplify the network and infrastructure management, by standardising instore technology across Lowes’ stores and head office. About Lowes Lowes Australia have been a household name in the Australian retail clothing space for over 120 years. With over 200 stores nationwide and 100% Australian owned, Lowes’ lines of menswear and school uniforms have long been the staples of many Australian family wardrobes. The brand has always been at the forefront of the retail industry, adapting to the changing needs of Australians and implementing ethical sourcing and manufacturing standards. www.lowes.com.au About Nexon Asia Pacific Since inception in 2000, Nexon has been a reliable, committed and trusted partner to Australian organisations, delivering innovative I.T. services and solutions to the not-for-profit, commercial and government sectors, with a significant value proposition for mid-market retail organisations.

Craveable Brands - the parent company behind three iconic Australian brands - Oporto, Red Rooster and Chicken Treat - has solidified their relationship with Nexon by including managed network connectivity and cloud calling across all 530 Australian restaurants.  Nexon’s relationship with Craveable Brands commenced 5 years ago, when the organisation, previously trading under Quick Service Restaurant holdings, engaged Nexon to deliver their corporate Unified Communications (Skype for Business) and network needs. This new contract will extend the partnership to include the deployment and management of internet access services, cloud calling, cloud managed security, wireless and switching at all 530 restaurants.  With current IT contracts expiring, Craveable Brands sought out a partner to manage the transition to nbn™ access network and offer improved support, service and management for all network, telephony and edge devices.  “Our goal was to provide a reliable and secure network for our Franchise Partners, consolidating to a single partner”, said Paul Kennedy, CIO at Craveable Brands. Nexon was chosen as Craveable Brands’ new provider after a thorough tender process.  “We needed a partner who could provide a cost-effective network across nearly 600 sites, delivering improved customer experience” added Paul. “More than that, Nexon’s solution model made sense. They already had retail experience, so we asked their customers to tell us their experiences on top of what we already knew. Their customers gave us the confidence to award them the contract” said Paul.  “The retail industry faces a challenging time at present. Retailers need to have a secure, reliable omni-channel presence and the migration to nbn will help keep systems online and support the business to run smoothly,” said Barry Assaf, Chief Executive Officer at Nexon Asia Pacific. “Many retailers, like Craveable Brands, need a unified strategy to transition, connect and secure core technology to provide the experiences their customers expect. Reliable connectivity and communication between retail restaurants, warehouses, head office and on-line systems underpin the strategy” added Barry.  Using technology from Cisco Meraki, Nexon is standardising all in-restaurant WAN, LAN and wireless devices to provide complete visibility and centralised management. This streamlined approach will deliver the security, flexibility and enhanced application performance needed by retailers. Nexon will migrate all corporate-owned and franchise-owned restaurants to a secure, stable network and telephony system on the nbn™ access network.  “Having a single provider with a strong provisioning and support model gives us peace of mind,” said Tyler Mason, Enterprise Services Manager at Craveable Brands. “Nexon will provide us with a standardised environment and increased restaurant security. This will enable us to thrive and adapt in today’s market so we can continue to deliver exceptional customer experiences across our restaurant network” said Tyler. “We are excited to extend our partnership with Craveable Brands and look forward to working together to increase their advantage in today’s market and beyond” said Nexon’s Client Engagement Lead, Nevien Badawi.
