The Background

Businesses that stay ahead of the game with the latest technological developments and applications are the ones that last. With an increasing portfolio and a growing team, Redpath Bruce needed to take the strain away from IT. They needed a scalable strategy to streamline communications and prioritise productivity without sacrificing security.

The Strategy

Implement a managed IT solution that could grow alongside Redpath Bruce, ensuring efficient communication and reliable internal operations with a remote support function that could free up time for staff.

Develop a network and server strategy to include working with 3rd parties in maintaining specialist CRM systems. Remote and onsite support to ensure all applications run efficiently.

Devise a plan to include scoping and providing laptops, computers and hardware, advising on the best technology to meet Redpath Bruce Ltd.'s requirements. Provide onsite support when needed.

Implement a cloud backup solution to replicate systems, applications, and data in the cloud, removing the need for internal IT staff to manage the solution.

IT Services provided

Managed IT Support

We strategised a solution that could be tailored and scaled up when required, alongside dedicated service boards and access to remote and onsite support. Our managed solution included laptop and computer support, and quarterly business reviews to work towards a shared vision, and bring value year on year.

Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365’s cloud apps and data make hybrid working simple. Employees can work from anywhere, like in the office. Productivity and collaboration with Microsoft Teams would be seamless.

Cyber Security

We implemented a cyber security solution to secure the network and internal systems. Anti-virus, 24/7 device monitoring, network monitoring and email security meant Redpath Bruce could always work safely.

Backup & Disaster Recovery

We replicated Redpath Bruce Ltd’s on-premise servers in the cloud to ensure that data was always recoverable should the worst happen. Employees could continue working with immediate access and restoration of needed files.

The Results

The solution completely future-proofs Redpath Bruce Ltd’s IT operations, providing strategic value and stability as the business sets its sights on achieving its short, medium, and long-term objectives.

It has removed the difficulty of maintaining sizeable on-premise infrastructure by providing scalable IT that supports the entire network while meeting the needs of a growing business. Our remote and onsite support solution unburdens internal staff and ensures that team members can get on with what’s important!
