"We couldn't scale with our incumbent systems, which is when we approached many different companies and found that Skedulo was the one for us."
- Emily Halsey, Engineering Operations Manager, Connexin
Who are you & Connexin?
My name is Emily Halsey and I’m the engineering operations manager here at Connexin. We connect people, places and things—and we’re on a mission to become one of the biggest alt nets in the north of the UK. My role at Connexin is to look after the engineering teams and the operations of that team, ensuring that the ambitious targets that we’ve set ourselves as a company are met and achieved.
What made you look for Skedulo?
In 2020, we secured an £80 million pound investment from our investors at PortSea. To build a 10 gigabit capable network in Hull, we knew we needed to invest and build systems that could grow alongside us as a company: Skedulo was scalable, and agile, which is exactly what we were looking for. So when we received our investment, it was well documented that we needed to scale up the company and team in order to deliver what we promised we would deliver.
