Sync IT

Shabra Plastics

Business Challenge:

The scale of Shabra’s business, both physically and geographically, combined with the strict industry legislation demanded by this sector, means their operations need to be run as efficiently and effectively as possible. The management team felt that their internal IT platform was not capable of providing for the future needs of the business.

There were concerns over the stability and scalability of the current system as the company experienced continued growth. Shabra contacted Sync IT to come in and carry out a review.

Sync IT

Our Solution:

Sync IT delivered the structured Technology Assessment which involves gaining an understanding of their business and their goals for the next 3 years, coupled with an in-depth technical review of the current setup. A detailed IT plan for Shabra was created from this assessment.

The key element of which was replacing all of their PC’s and backend systems with a new hybrid cloud platform utilising Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Server virtualisation. This technology platform means that Shabra can facilitate future growth in the business.

As Shabra did not have necessary IT expertise internally they engaged Sync IT to become their ‘virtual IT department’. We managed the rollout of this new platform, working with 3rd party software vendors that Shabra depend on to run their business, making the migration seamless.

Business Benefits

Future Proof

Hybrid cloud solutions allow the business to upgrade to the latest software instantly without the need to upgrade their hardware too. This means that you can always stay one step ahead of the competition.

Highly Scalable

New applications and services can be deployed and tested easily. Company data can grow without worrying that the system will fail or won’t have the capacity to cope.

Stable Costs

As Office 365 and Sync IT service costs recur monthly, they are operational costs as opposed to major capital expenditure. Our client will only ever pay for the capacity they use – just like an electricity bill!

Greater Uptime

Office 365 is bound by Microsoft’s Service Level Agreement of 99.99% uptime. Also, as we proactively monitor the solution the ‘Return to Operation’ is minimised should a technical issue arise
