Firms Collaborate to Create Ingredients for Success
HBP Systems link up with Ulrick & Short to modernise and transform their IT infrastructure
Collaboration between businesses of the Humber region is proving to be the key to success, after business IT support & software experts HBP Systems forged a new link with clean label ingredient specialists Ulrick & Short after Hull based accountants Smailes Goldie played their part in bringing the two firms together.
The new connection has proven to be a very beneficial one for Ulrick & Short who have completed their extensive project to both modernise and transform the company's IT infrastructure, which all started thanks to the referral by Smailes Goldie.
The project was always going to be a challenge before work had even begun, leading the Ulrick & Short management team to seek out a business IT support firm who could be relied on to provide the best knowledge and experience for the job, as Andrew Ulrick explained;
"For a project of this size it was vital to work with the most suitable team of professionals who understood what we are trying to achieve for the business and our ambitions to maintain consistent growth.
"Smailes Goldie recommended HBP Systems and, following our initial conversations with their team, we felt confident moving forward, especially knowing the required expertise was available so close to us geographically".
Following prior consultation with HBP Systems, an on-site survey revealed the current infrastructure had several significant barriers preventing optimised operations.
HBP Systems network account manager Oliver Nicoll, who oversaw the project, described the problems encountered and the methods used to achieve the outlined objectives; "The previous infrastructure didnít offer the required options for storing and backing up data, and as with any ageing IT system the maintenance costs were constantly increasing.Ē
"It was agreed that virtualising the servers was the best solution in order to reduce costs, improve reliance and hardware redundancy, whilst expanding capacities in anticipation for future growth in addition to standardising all current and future Microsoft software for greater performance."
Moving forward, HBP Systems have committed to maintaining proactive support and monitoring, delighted at having worked closely with a new client.
