The business case for the Medhurst cloud solution for Dean & Reddyhoff was obvious; by simplifying the way computers handle their workload, they can work faster and for less money. It’s a discipline that can be applied to every component of an IT network and offers companies the opportunity to run multiple operating systems on a single server. Through ease of access and greater availability of hardware and applications, it enables highly flexible, secure backups and the ability to migrate entire virtual environments with no interruption in service.
Now, Dean & Reddyhoff has a secure off-site back-up with improved security and more flexible IT services for all its marinas. By ensuring all locations worked from a common Microsoft platform, Medhurst resolved previous complications with incompatible versions of Microsoft Office being used across the organisation and cost savings of approximately £12,000 a year were achieved by installing an improved internet access system. Migrating the company’s EPOS system into the cloud has also allowed Dean & Reddyhoff to provide a faster, more reliable and more secure service to its customers.
