The new management team was introduced to the business in 2013 and they wanted to outsource the IT function in order to get access to a broad range of specialist skills and expert implementation capability. ADM’s service track record meant they were awarded the contract and, alongside the support function, started to provide delivery of projects and strategic advice.

ADM Computing in Canterbury are teaming up with Amanda Okill, employment law specialist from Furley Page Solicitors to explain the importance of good record-keeping and the legal issues around staff pay, holidays and sickness. Record-keeping and documentation are important processes within an organisation and certain regulations require specific records to be kept for proof of completion of required training.

From their purpose-built site near Folkestone, Kent they fabricate and install structures ranging from 5 metres to over 100 metres. Their aging infrastructure had served them well, but was now starting to show its age. Some of the applications that it hosted were suffering from the underlying equipment being unreliable. With the key software package being the accounts platform, this was causing concern within the management team.

The firm has specialist staff covering all aspects of business, and prides itself on having a higher ratio of fully qualified staff than any other local firm, providing high-level, experienced staff to manage their client relationships. The Cloud was not considered to be suitable at this point in time, as the client didn’t feel comfortable with it as a solution.
