Continuous Improvement

We take our obligations to deliver excellent service extremely seriously.

Meet customer needs

Meet Customers’ Needs

Delivering good service is the heart of our business. We don’t just sell products, we advise, we consult, we recommend, implement, manage, support, fix, and we update and help with Digital Evolution.

Blaze gets a very positive rating in the surveys we do following each support request: 100% of respondents say they are either “very satisfied” (87%) or “satisfied” (17%) with the way in which they were supported. There were zero ratings lower than this. (Figures are for 2019).

Three Key Differentiators

Of the many value-adds which Blaze delivers to customers around our products and services, three areas underpin much of what differentiates us from alternatives you may be considering.

The Blaze Private Core Network

Blaze has created a unique network across the UK that employs a highly resilient and secure network design, industry-leading partnerships, and our own UK-based NOC (Network Operations Centre) and Support Desk facility.

Designed with resiliency and multiple failover protection, the Blaze Private Core Network has delivered 100% uptime for over 10 years.

Secure, Managed, Agile

Our operating principles revolve around delivering products and services which are secure, properly managed, and which enable our customers to be increasingly agile.

A Hyper-Secure Customer Support Network

We know that, as a Managed Service Provider, our customers are entrusting us with the security of some of their most valuable assets. We therefore have ensured that within our own network we have built a customer support environment which has a military-like level of security – our MZ or Management Zone.
