The benefits

Reach more customers faster and securely

The BT Radianz Cloud community is made up of many thousands of financial user locations around the world: it’s the largest secure networked financial community in the world. Rather than you having to invest in private point-to-point network connections to reach existing and new customers, the BT Radianz Provider service offers you quick and easy access to that community so that you can distribute your services and applications reliably and securely to more users than ever before, both domestically and internationally.

Your potential customers who are already use the BT Radianz Cloud are able to gain quick access to your service in just a few days. That means that you can fulfil orders faster, generate revenue faster and increase customer satisfaction at the same time – and you can focus on marketing and implementing your services rather than on creating or duplicating network infrastructure.

When rolling out any service, you save considerable time by using a proven global delivery platform that your customers already use themselves. You make it easier for your customers to take on your services and you help them to keep down their costs of implementing and integrating your services, all of which in turn helps to make your services more attractive to customers.

BT manages and maintains the entire delivery path, including all hardware and circuits both on your premises and in your customers’ sites. And it’s service level is designed to deliver at “financial services-strength” and specifically to meet the stringent requirements of the financial community.

With so many thousands of financial user locations around the world being part of the BT Radianz Cloud already, it’s very likely that most of your customers and potential customers are already available to you through our BT Radianz Provider service.

What it costs

The benefits of a “cloud” approach

Building private links to customers and counterparties has always been an expensive business for both parties involved. Each service provider has had to design, implement and maintain communications technology and at the same time every party that they want to communicate with has had to implement the receiving-end of that technology as well. The more customers and counterparties that you want to deal with, the more complex and resource-intensive that communications technology becomes – whether you’re a provider or a user of services.

By rationalising this approach so that you can reach many or all of your customers and counterparties via a single, reliable and secure infrastructure, not only do you reduce your own operational costs but you can also help to reduce your customers’ operational costs as well. Rather than forcing your customers to implement new technology just to accept the service that you want to offer them, why not let them make even better use of technology themselves – and particularly if they are already members of the BT Radianz Cloud community.

The total cost of ownership of communications for your customers can be doubled if they have to deal with separate private network approaches from each service provider that they want to access. The total cost to your own organisation of building, managing and maintaining a private network is likely to be significantly higher as well.
