Sync IT

Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort

Business Challenge:

Based on the size and scale of the estate, which encompasses a hotel, a number of country cottages, a stately home, modern apartments and a championship golf course, Moyvalley Hotel & Golf Resort needed to transition to a scalable IT platform.

This new IT platform had to offer the guests, clients and staff of the hotel a secure and reliable Wi-Fi solution. Further, it was to be incorporated into a back-end system that housed standard business software applications and services.

Sync IT

Our Solution:

Sync IT was engaged to fit out a fibre based backbone across this vast estate connecting all of the key buildings and users into one ‘local area network’ (LAN). On top of this Sync IT built a new hybrid cloud platform utilising Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Server virtualisation.

Moyvalley Hotel strives to satisfy their guests with excellent customer service and amenities. As part of this, reliable wireless internet access for all guests is a necessity.

We leveraged our internal skillset with Ubiquiti Networks™ UniFi® technology to build a reliable, high-performance solution that provides Wi-Fi to hotel guests. The cloud based UniFi Controller makes it easy to manage a scalable network across the estate.

Hybrid Cloud Solution

A new server cluster located in their head office, running Microsoft Windows 2012 with Hyper V turned on, gives the business the platform to host multiple servers and business applications, coupled with automated and monitored backup.

Microsoft Office 365

Office 365 Business Premium & Business Essentials was deployed giving all users the latest version of Word, Excel and Outlook. This is linked to Exchange Online for centralised email and calendar access across the company.

Using the latest version of Office reduces the overall amount of data residing on the server which in turn reduces the amount of time it takes to back up the data. Drivers, sales staff and engineering support staff can now work remotely and have the same access to data, email and calendars as if they were working on-site.

Business Benefits

Simple Management

Network management is efficient, so hotel personnel can easily view graphical reports of wireless usage and quickly manage the wireless network or escalate to Sync IT who offer and manage the complete network via our managed service.

Increased Capacity

There is sufficient capacity to support any spikes in network traffic, allowing the service to scale to meet the demands of the users.

Greater Preformance

Moyvalley Hotel now benefits from a best-in-class Wi-Fi solution that delivers all areas with seamless wireless coverage. Users are free to move around the grounds of the estate without experiencing any disruption to their wireless connection.

Reliable Support

When end users at Moyvalley Hotel have an IT issue they can trust that each ticket is logged and resolved in line with best practice standards.

“Sync IT have done a great job to deliver a fantastic Wi-Fi solution for Moyvalley. It’s fast and reliable – exactly what our guests expect.”
