Data networks provider Strencom has inked a three-year contract with Irish animation company Brown Bag Films valued at €300,000.

The company has already implemented a combined Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) and has managed connectivity solution to Brown Bag Films, who produces children’s animation series such as Henry Hugglemonster, Peter Rabbit, Octonauts and Doc McStuffins.

Strencom’s UCaaS solution offers Brown Bag Films a virtual collaboration space, connecting its Dublin-based offices with its partners around the world. The technology allows Brown Bag Films to switch between audio and video conferencing, instant messaging, and desktop and application sharing, to facilitate global animation production.

“When we implemented Strencom we immediately began to see creative and productivity gains that we hadn’t initially planned,” said Cathal Gaffney, CEO of Brown Bag Films in a statement.

“It has immensely improved internal communications helping to facilitate our scaling in Ireland and internationally.”

Tim Murphy, CEO, Strencom added, “Brown Bag Films is one of the world’s most original and creative animation studios. It has a tradition of leveraging advanced technologies to produce great films and TV shows. We are delighted that our integrated UCaaS and managed connectivity platform is helping them with collaboration among colleagues, customers and partners worldwide.”
