Case studies & testimonials
Frank redrafted ChannelCloud's contracts to embrace Cloud Industry Forum best practice. Jim Zeches CFO and Partner Relationship Manager for ChannelCloud UK/Ireland stated: “As cloud matures, the barriers to adoption will diminish and end users will be faced with an ever increasing number of choices. We feel that the agreements we have created in conjunction with Frank and DMH Stallard LLP will differentiate us in the channel. This will in turn help our channel partner’s provide transparent agreements to their end users.”
Frank advised on Ebix Europe’s SaaS service Lime-street.com. This is designed to supplement or replace inefficient face-to-face meetings and is one of the first of its kind in the UK insurance industry. Malcolm Alexander, Vice President, Ebix Europe said: "Frank Jennings at DMH Stallard redrafted our standard contracts and provided a number of one-on-one training sessions. Frank ran through the main IT contracts that our business uses, highlighting the key areas of risk and how to manage them."
Frank prepared terms of service for Rackspace's UK cloud offering as part of its service expansion into the UK. Rackspace has delivered enterprise-level hosting services to businesses of all sizes and kinds around the world since 1998 and has grown to serve more than 205,538 customers.
