Matthew Clark

Leading Beverage Wholesaler Confidently Moves Forward with MPLS and Hosted Voice


Matthew Clark is a national beverage wholesaler, supplying alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, training and marketing support to thousands of hospitality premises across the UK. Founded in 1810, the operation has grown to nearly 2,000 product lines, held across 18 sites and now employs over 1,400 staff.


With an upcoming connectivity contact renewal approaching, Matthew Clark decided that it was the perfect opportunity to source a more cost-effective solution that provided more diversity, integration and resilience in their network.


TalkTalk Business' holistic MPLS and Voice solution was undoubtedly more cost-effective than the previous incumbent's, even considering the increase in bandwidth and added failover connection, saving Matthew Clark over £100,000 per year in operational expenditure alone.


Matthew Clark has since enjoyed 100% uptime thanks to the continuity that two completely diverse routes to different exchanges provide; automatically switching over if the primary connection fails. Plus, both lines have the same bandwidth, safeguarding the consistent high-speed access where staff won't even notice a reduction in speed, if an issue does occur.
