06 Mar Upgrading IT in support of a 5-year business plan
Based in Ashford, Kent, this ISO certified client has been designing and manufacturing high specification security doors for commercial and industrial premises throughout the UK for well over thirty years, and felt that they had outgrown their previous IT provider.
The company’s ambitious 5-year growth plan required a streamlined approach, and was heavily reliant on their IT and internal systems being fully reliable, as any downtime had potential for significant repercussions on their rigorous manufacturing and customer care standards.
ADM were asked to help them restructure their IT and provide disaster recovery. Their existing infrastructure was mostly physical which presents some inherent challenges when designing systems that are resilient and support an ‘always on’ environment.
ADM installed new hardware and reconfigured existing assets in order that they could be highly available, using a resilient configuration to allow the operation to continue to work in the event of hardware failure, and installed some disaster recovery equipment. The entire system now benefits from ongoing support from ADM’s award-winning team.
“We’re very happy with the new system, and are safe in the knowledge that we have IT support from ADM, someone with scale and capability who can keep our IT running whilst we implement our business plans.” Managing Director
