The problem

This car bodywork repair company wanted to establish new branches in the UK during 2015. The company did not want to waste valuable business time, so had set aggressive deadlines for implementation of the new systems. The challenge was to set up a significant number of employees, at multiple locations, at short notice and without vast capital outlay. They were unhappy with their existing IT provider and therefore consulted nTrust to undertake this task.

How we helped

nTrust set up a virtual server environment, offering greater efficiency for the business. With a virtual server software can be updated on the central server instead of on every single PC every time a new version is released, which would have taken hours over the whole estate. In co-operation with our client’s specialist software suppliers, we installed and customised their business applications on the new server.

To avoid the huge capital expense of purchasing MS Office for all the new employees, we provided Office 365 licences on a subscription basis for each employee. Everyone now has a hosted desktop, ensuring they can access their usual software and the latest versions of Office and Outlook wherever they are. New members can be added quickly and easily. Company data is backed up online daily and data is stored securely in a Tier3+ UK data centre.

The benefits to the business

nTrust works on building strong relationships with reliability as its core principle. We are the first port of call if our client needs anything, and we respond quickly. Our client now has processes and technologies in place that streamline the day-to-day activities of each employee. The overall business is more productive. Backups are stored securely, giving the company peace of mind that data can be restored quickly in the event of server damage or failure. The expansion could have been costly and time consuming, however nTrust helped keep disruption and costs to a minimum.
